When it comes to an occasion as momentous as a wedding, sometimes a single day just isn’t enough to accommodate all of the celebrating that needs to be done; you simply have to make a weekend of it. At Hotel Fontenot, we can execute a full weekend’s worth of events, from a champagne toast to kick off the festivities at the welcome party through the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception to the last sip of mimosa at the farewell brunch. With an assortment of gorgeous event spaces, mouthwatering catering options, and luxurious accommodations, we can guarantee we’ll make each event a memorable one that’s unique to your vision for the ultimate wedding weekend.


Welcome Party

The perfect way to bring together loved ones who have traveled and local guests to kick off the celebratory spirit of your wedding weekend. From a sips-and-snacks cocktail set-up (with a signature couple’s cocktail, perhaps?) to a dessert bar or a full welcome breakfast, the options are plentiful. Let’s have some fun with it.

Rehearsal Dinner

Gather together with your wedding party and close friends & family in one of our more intimate event spaces like our private dining area in our Peacock Room, or out on our terrace. We’ve got customizable rehearsal dinner menus to ensure everyone can indulge in tasty fare during the toasts, speeches and all of the excitement that the evening may entail.


The heart and soul of the wedding weekend, your ceremony is a beautiful way to reflect your personality as a couple. Our Canray ballroom offers a bit of romantic grandeur with its tall French windows and glamorous lighting, or maybe our airy rooftop terrace set overlooking New Orleans is more your style. We have plenty of scenic spots at Hotel Fontenot for you to say your “I do’s”.

Wedding Reception

The vows have been exchanged, a happy tear or two has been shed, and now it’s time for the big event. Whether you’re considering the merits of a DJ vs. a live band or a traditional wedding cake vs. a beignet station, we can work with you to create the reception of your dreams.

Keep The Party Going

That magical time once the reception has ended but everyone is ready to keep the party going? We love that time. That’s why we’ve put together a menu of late night bites, full of the foods that taste great any time of day, but taste incredible after 11:00 pm. All your post-dancing cravings satisfied.

Farewell Brunch

A truly delicious goodbye. Send your loved ones home from your wedding weekend with unforgettable memories and bellies full of brunch staples, from a simple continental spread, to a build your own omelet station, and of course, mimosas. We help curate the perfect farewell fare to close out a weekend that will be talked about for years to come.
