As you might imagine, we are sometimes asked for our opinions or suggestions on various wedding elements. Recently, we were asked for rehearsal dinner location recommendations . Though this particular bride had a few specific needs, even we couldn’t think of a location that checked all of her essential boxes. Which got us thinking about rehearsal spots around the city. New Orleans is known for its culinary excellence, so you can’t swing a bridal bouquet without hitting an all-star restaurant. But, in what we plan to make a reoccurring series, we noticed a few similarities while creating the list for this bride. The theme for this one is: New Orleans classics and “Instagrammable” locations for the modern couple.

Below, we share a few of the many spots around town that hit one (or both) of these categories. Stay tuned for more types of locations in upcoming LTEC posts.
