Some kind of wrought iron element like what’s on the french colonial style buildings, and beignets for dessert!

have your flowers in vases that look like wrought iron urns

or use lamp placecard holders

have the table cards, in French and English

incorporate the fleur-de-lis

Oh how fun!!! I LOVE New Orleans πŸ™‚ And how funny we are getting married the same weekend πŸ™‚ i would incorporate as much New Orleans Jazz music as possible! Maybe even get a live jazz band if possible. Stick with an “old world” feel. It seems like New Orleans is kinda in it’s own time period, stuck in the past πŸ™‚ If you can find a venue with a gorgeous courtyard that would be a plus! Something with old brick and tons of lush plants! Also, throw in some French type decor since New Orleans is the “Paris” of the south πŸ™‚ Just try to capture that 20’s-esque style that New Orleans has got going on! Here are some pics for inspiration!

go here to see the shoot in all its glory.. couldn’t figure out how to make the pic bigger

and this website had a cute inspiration shoot!

I also agree with the fleur de lis and street sign kind of decor! And you must have a croquembuche cake like this…

I saw this adorable picture once with the street names as table names. (I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, the street signs are distinctive, but I can’t find the picture πŸ™ ) I like the candle and lantern thing, reminds me of Pierre Maspero’s, but not everyone would get that.
