Our Favorite New Orleans Wedding Traditions

1. Second Line

You simply can’t have a New Orleans wedding without a second line, so grab your umbrella and handkerchief and dance the night away! This tradition goes all the way back to the 19th century, when the New Orleans Freedmen’s Aid Association began doing parades to honor those who had died. Over time more brass bands began to form and the Second Line became a signature New Orleans tradition!

2. Ribbon Pulling

In a city that’s known for voodoo, you can expect some fortune telling at a New Orleans wedding! In this fun tradition, the wedding cake will come with ribbons that have charms attached. Each charm has a different fortune that can range from “next to get married” to “good luck”. Each bridesmaid gets to pull a ribbon and see what’s in store for her!

3. Cajun Money Dance

At a New Orleans wedding, the dancing never stops! But there is one very special dance that gives each guest the opportunity to dance with the bride or groom, at a cost. Guests pin money to the bride and groom to congratulate and wish them luck in this new chapter of their lives. This tradition is great because it gives the bride and groom an opportunity to spend a moment with each and every guest!
