Hello all,

My husband and I are planning to renew our vows on our 30th anniversary in 2014. Yes, I know, it's a couple of years away, but I want to start things in motion!

We honeymooned in New Orleans, and we love the city. We need suggestions on a venue for our renewal. Here's what we know so far:

It will just be us and our four kids (well, 3 are grown and the youngest is almost 13) and a rabbi. If one of the grown kids gets married/engaged by then, the spouse will be included as well, of course, but at the moment, it's six plus the rabbi. Obviously, we don't need a huge space. I do not know if the rabbi will require us to have a huppah (wedding canopy) or not, but, if s/he does, then we need room for that as well.

We cannot afford something ultra expensive. We honeymooned at the Soniat House, and we have thought about using their courtyard (if we can), but we might not be able to stay there for two or three nights -- it ain't cheap!! We are looking for other ideas in case that doesn't work out. I saw the website for the Edgar Degas House, and it looked possible. We would want something with more traditional architecture or a garden or courtyard setting, or at least a place with a lovely view out the windows.

If anyone can recommend a good florist and a bakery for a small cake, I would appreciate that as well.

We are willing to go somewhere outside New Orleans, as long as it's not more than an hour away. I know there are plantations with available facilities outside the city, but I don't know that we need something that size for six people.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

I can't be of that much help but I would suggest O'Delice on Magazine Street as a bakery. It's run by a Vietnamese woman and even the croissants she makes are just incredible. It might be possible for you to rent a house in the FQ for a week... might actually be cheaper than getting hotel rooms for everybody, and you're almost guaranteed a nice courtyard.
