It should be your number one priority to recreate every one of your favorite parts of Mardi Gras. From the food to the favors, your wedding guests should feel like they are enjoying a festival planned just for them.
A Mardi Gras wedding should start at the door. From the moment your guests walk in, make your guests feel like they are in New Orleans. Hire atmosphere entertainers to pass out Mardi Gras masks to your wedding guests (or make them part of your guests’ table cards). Produce signs that scream Mardi Gras and give your guests direction as they enjoy your celebration.
Mardi Gras is about more than just flavor. It’s about atmosphere. Serve your guests a complete Mardi Gras feast with classic dishes AND unique dinner service that takes it to the next level. Serve your dishes (or an interactive food station for more fun!) on a Carnivale table for a memorable Mardi Gras night and a drink server your guests’ll talk about for months (and years!) to come (contact an entertainment agent to connect you to these memorable Mardi Gras entertainers).
A cake to remember
A Mardi Gras wedding wouldn’t be complete without an over-the-top cake (nothing Mardi Gras is half way, after all!). If you want a non-traditional cake, ask for a multi-layer king cake that screams Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras bands
It wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without the music. Hire a band with a Cajun or jazzy style that’ll make your guests feel like they are at the parade or at the biggest Mardi Gras celebration of all time. Talk to an entertainment agent to choose the right band for your big day. Depending on your venue, an entertainment agent can select the right (quality) band with the right amount of musicians for the size of venue and the sound that’ll bring Mardi Gras to your wedding.
Saucy wedding favors
Hosting the ultimate Mardi Gras wedding comes with an opportunity: the chance to give your guests a taste of Mardi Gras to take home. Help them relive the fun of your Mardi Gras wedding day after day with a container of Mardi Gras hot sauce, masks, cookies…the sky’s the limit.
