Three Options for an intimate, private ceremony
Save $hundreds to $thousands for a head start on your
172 Mimosa Place, Lafayette LA 70506 (Appointment only)
Option One - Wedding Ceremony with
Cake & Punch Reception or Formal Tea - $450.00
This Small Wedding Celebration is provided by Rev. Dan as a personal service to those who want a simple wedding but have few people attending
or are on a tight budget and is the most economical option available in this area. (An officiate, space rental, bouquet and a cake elsewhere will cost over $800, and no special decoration is needed
at The Cottage.) Due to limited space, there is a limit of bride & groom and 12 guests unless special arrangements are made.
Rev. Dan will officiate a customized ceremony followed by a one-hour Tea Party, indoor or garden (weather permitting), before you head off “into the sunset”. The Cottage décor is a mix of cozy ‘New Orleans style’ and English cottage with antiques and crystal so additional decoration is not needed. A Ceremony Planning Form will be provided so we can design your ceremony with options available.
($100 non-refundable deposit, balance due two weeks before event.)
Call or email for an appointment to visit and make the deposit.
*We have an associate photographer and a florist who offer discounts for weddings at The Cottage when available. Let us know if you would like more
information on those options.
Option Two - $220.00 Ceremony at The Cottage
Full ceremony, the two of you with a limit of 12 guests, who will also serve as witnesses. Includes officiating by Rev. Dan. All is done within an hour. The
Cottage décor is cozy ‘New Orleans Style’ so additional decoration is not needed. We have music and a silk bouquet and boutonniere you may use. You may add one reading and any of the extra ceremonies
