least expensive you have to offer?" The time booked is the same
regardless if it is only the Bride and Groom or up to 15 guests.

but our ceremonies costs are based on the time of day and day of week;
holiday rates apply and are more expensive. We offer a variety of
ceremonies and amenities to fit everyone's budget. We are the only
wedding chapel in the French Quarter for over 11 years, changing laws to
make getting your license easier and a lot more.

Due to high demand, additional time must be requested in advance. Each additional 30 minutes is $135.00. Any guests arriving
more then 15 minutes prior to scheduled ceremony time will be considered
an extra 1/2 hour and will be charged accordingly. It is the wedding
couple's responsibility to let their guests know of arrival times. Early
arrival will be considered extra time. Standing capacity of chapel is
35-40, at other locations there is no extra charge by us.
You may have as many guests as you like at
The Chapel will hold 35 guests plus couple.
It is $450 for couple and 15 guests for one hour (it does not take a
hour for the wedding.) We know that the time to start can very because
of traffic, parking and other things can delay a wedding from start
An additional $135 for 16 to 35 guests, small children are considered
guests. An additional 30 minutes is included, if needed, with the added
when children are in attendance!
Each child must be supervised by one adult. We want children to be
included in every couple's wedding. If children are not attended
to by responsible adults, the child/children and responsible adult will
be asked to leave the chapel. The chapel is furnished with very
expensive antiques and the wedding couple will be held responsible for
any damage caused either by a child or any invited guests. The charge to
replace an item will be automatically charged to the couple's
credit/debit card. If wedding couple refused to compensate for damages
caused by their guests, legal council will be secured by The French
Quarter Wedding Chapel. We truly love to have wedding couple's and
family's children attend, however, we want to make sure our chapel and
contents are kept intact after the wedding ceremony. We have experiences
valuable losses because guests of the wedding couple were a little over
zealous and items got broke. We were not reimbursed for the items and we
feel we need to let couples know their responsibilities when inviting
If the wedding couple are bringing their children and there are no
adults to watch them, we are able to provide a responsible adult during
their time in the chapel. The fee for the sitter is $25.00, two
children maximum per sitter. If you do not hire a sitter when an adult
is not present to attend to the child, we can not take the booking.
This requirement only applies for ceremonies held in the chapel.
Infants in strollers who are not walking yet do not need a sitter.
