Advice

More details to come, but the shortlist:

- If you drive, be very cautious of where you park due to issues with car break ins, and car jackings in the city.
- Don't leave anything in your car.
- Flying may make more sense than driving for many folks, as all events on the schedule are close and would only be a short and affordable taxi or rideshare.

A note on booking

The welcome party is Saturday (4/6/24) and the wedding is Sunday (4/7/24), so make sure you book at least through Monday (4/8/24)!

We have wedding blocks at four hotels and alternate recommendations as well. The Garden District and Warehouse District are most ideal for proximity to the venue and safety.

If driving in to the city or renting a car, be careful of leaving any items in your car, and choose garage or attended parking over street parking if possible.

We will have buses from the reception to the hotel blocks to bring guests home after the party is over. Buses start at 9 p.m. on Sunday and end at midnight.
