OK, it’s only January, but spring will be here before you know it. The spring season in Acadiana brings lots of weddings. I am engaged to be married, myself. I took an informal poll on Facebook, posing the question “What’s The best place for a wedding?” I’ve DJ’ed A number of weddings in the area at popular spots like L’eglise, River Oaks and The Manor.

The number one response was La Barn Rouge on Rue du Belier in Lafayette (981-7925). That was followed by New Iberia’s Rip Van Winkle Gardens (359-8525). The third most popular spot was the Manor (367-8800), followed by New Hope Chapel at Acadian Village. Which one's best for you? That depends upon what you are looking for, an idyllic outdoor setting, a 19th-century chapel, The elegance of a stately manor. You have great options here in Acadiana!
