There’s no wedding like a southern wedding, so this Mardis Gras season I'm dreaming of colorful southern belle traditions, king cake (yum!) and of course New Orleans Square in Disneyland. Built in a romantic yet festive setting of 19th-century Louisiana, New Orleans Square provides a year-round celebratory affair reminiscent of the Old South. Green, gold, and purple decor line the streets of the historic French Quarter influenced by French, Creole, Cajun and American traditions. If you’re looking for a way to "jazz" up your own wedding, bring out those feathered parasols or consider having your guests partake in a second line parade. Of course no New Orleans inspired reception would be complete without a traditional cake ribbon pulling...bless your heart if you get a lucky charm!

Mardis Gras is a festive time of the year and a perfect excuse to celebrate you and your sweetheart! So get your beads ready and let the good times roll ‘cause every day is Mardis Gras at New Orleans Square.

Happy Fat Tuesday,
