New Orleans Wedding – Traditions New and Old

By Sherra Meyers

Omni Royal Orleans New Orleans View


The traditional ‘Second Line’ celebration in New Orleans is not the only ritual you will want to uphold at your New Orleans destination wedding celebration. The Omni Royal Orleans upholds the tradition of southern charm and graceful elegance while located in the heart of the French Quarter at one of the most fashionable corners of St. Louis at Royal Streets. On top of that, the hotel has received the Four Diamond luxury award for the past 31 years putting you to rest that you and your guests will be well taken care of.

Traditions are well received in many things but the Omni Royal Orleans knows good things must continue into the future. The hotel underwent a renovation in March of 2013, incorporating modern amenities with classic design in their guest rooms, and redesigned lobby inspired by the vivacity of the area’s culture.
