If you are like many brides, you have had an idea of what your wedding will look like since your were a little girl. You can see the flowers and the dress, and you know what music you want playing during the ceremony and the reception. What you probably did not see was the stress and frustration that many brides face when trying to navigate an overwhelming number of details, options, and packages.
Some of the stress is created by the anticipation itself and the knowledge that you have only one chance to get everything right. Then there’s the accompanying drama of dealing with family and friends who all have great intentions but fail to understand that they are not actually helping you. Frustration mounts, and you wonder where all the joy went.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
While we can’t change the troublesome family members or help you decide on bridesmaids, we can help de-clutter your planning process. At Southern Oaks Plantation, we offer a simple pricing and planning structure to create magical celebrations. We believe your wedding should be a memorable, stress-free experience. That’s why we avoid complicated per-person cost structures and multiple packages that just result in decision fatigue.
This simplified approach begins with our catering. Not only do we provide an unrivaled culinary experience and true “Taste of New Orleans,” we also use a cocktail-style menu with over 80 items available and included in every celebration. There’s no need to worry about complicated menus or meal preferences.
Whether you would like us to host just your reception or your ceremony as well, we have an experienced staff of wedding professionals who will help coordinate the entire event. We provide an array of in-house amenities from candle-lit centerpieces and an open bar to personalized music from our Disc Jockey and personal attendants and a private meal for the bride and groom.
We also offer several enhancements that can make your wedding a truly unique experience. Just a few options include a horse-drawn carriage, a New Orleans Jazz Band, fireworks, sushi chef, and carving stations, among others.
Planning your wedding should be exciting and magical, not stressful and disappointing. Contact us today to discuss how Southern Oaks Plantation can remove that stress and ensure that your wedding is the fairy tale you always dreamed of.
