Cajun Mansion FAQ

We know you have questions, and we’re ready with answers. You can always reach out to us on our Contact Page with any questions not answered on this page. We can’t wait to serve you!

We had an outdoor wedding. It was just beautiful. They outdid themselves. We have gotten so many compliments on one of the best weddings our guests have attended.


Can we rent the venue as an empty venue?

The answer is YES but with a caveat. The Cajun Mansion Event Venue is an all-inclusive venue, and it automatically comes with staff, security, and a decorated venue in addition to the vendors. The packages are customizable, and you can make it your own by bringing in your decorations. If you do not want to use our vendors, we typically coordinate swapping your approved vendors for our vendors. We would just remove the costs for our approved vendors and add your approved vendors.

When are you available for tours?

We are open 7 days a week for consultations! In the interest of time, give us a call at (337)223-4722 to schedule your venue consultation. You would want to provide the venue sales representative with your event date, your email, and phone number.

How do we save our date? What is the next step?

Call the sales representative and determine the best date and time to bring in your deposit, mail in a check, or pay by credit card or Venmo. We do not hold dates; therefore you must send your payment in as soon as possible.

Is the DATE HOLD Deposit Refundable?

A DATE HOLD deposit is a NON-REFUNDABLE payment when you have requested that the venue hold your date for your special event. The payment essentially puts your event date “on hold” for you and takes the date off the market.

Why should we book at the Cajun Mansion?

We have systems in place to provide you with a Stress-Free wedding. What sets the Cajun Mansion Event Venue apart from other venues is that we are a bed and breakfast in addition to a wedding venue. This allows us to provide our brides with a longer and more intimate experience! We are known in the wedding industry for giving our brides not only a stress-free wedding planning process but also a “24 Hour Bridal Experience” the day of their wedding from hair and makeup the morning of in our gorgeous sunroom to breakfast in bed the next morning!

What Form of Payments do you accept?

We provide you with several options for payments. We accept Cash, Checks, Venmo (2% charge), and Credit Cards (3.99% Charge)

Can we bring in our beverages?

Due to our liquor license, we are unable to allow our clients to bring in their alcoholic beverages, therefore we have created all-inclusive beverage packages with a variety of options to fit every budget!

At the Cajun Mansion, we can host an event for up to 175 guests or slightly more. We also offer all-inclusive packages at our sister venues that can hold up to 350 guests!

Are brides and grooms accounted for in the guest count?

Yes, anyone who will be attending the wedding and CONSUMING food and beverages should be accounted for in your guest count. This includes the bride and groom plus the wedding party

Are we allowed to change our package once we book?

Yes, guest counts are subject to change, and we understand that! All of our brides and grooms have up to 60 days before their wedding to give us a final guest count and change packages. After 60 days packages can only be upgraded, not downgraded.

Is the Deposit an extra fee?

Our DATE HOLD deposit goes towards the balance of your wedding and payment is applied immediately. The deposit is not an additional fee.

What is your pricing for a reception ONLY?

Our wedding packages are the same price for a ceremony/reception or reception only. Instead of having a 30-minute ceremony plus a 3.5-hour reception, you would have all 4 hours for your reception. The reception-only package still includes the day of experience for the bride and bridesmaids to dress and do hair/makeup. It also includes fresh flowers for the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres.

Do you have any time restrictions on weddings and receptions?

Wedding Packages include a 4-hour venue rental which includes the ceremony and reception. Due to the city of Youngsville’s noise ordinances, there are time restrictions depending on the day and time. These can be discussed with you at the time of your consultation.

While getting your hair and makeup done the morning of, you will be able to see our staff set up your wedding from start to finish and you don’t have to lift a finger!

Are we able to rent rooms the night before the wedding?

Due to booking multiple events a week, we typically wait until 90 days before your event to rent out any additional suites for the night before.

Can we provide our officiant even though you do not give us a credit back?

Absolutely! Although we do not give credit back for using your officiant, you can provide your own. Once you decide to bring in your officiant, they do have to provide their supplies such as a pen to sign the marriage license, a microphone, and a podium if they require it.

How soon after our consultation do we need to save our date?

We can only hold your special date once we receive the deposit. Therefore, if there is a date that you just can’t live without, soon than later is the answer.

Everything was amazing and I would wholeheartedly recommend this vendor to any bride or groom or anyone who’s looking for a fabulous, classy, elegant event. Sandra ensures your big day is amazing.
