CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement! Thank you for clicking onto our page! The Edgar Degas House Museum, Courtyard and Inn is the ONLY home and studio of the French Impressionist Master, in the world, open to the public. Degas House is distinguished by the French Ministry of Culture. Frommers Travel Guides has awarded Degas House as the Best Wedding Venue in Louisiana. With 5 years of "Best of Weddings" awarded by TheKnot.com, Degas House is a Hall of Fame Venue. Wedding Wire honors Degas House with "Couples Choice" Award!. Degas House is now entering our 21st year of hosting weddings, overnight guests in our Luxury Inn, and Guided Tours of both houses by Degas' Great Grand Nieces! 18 paintings, 4 drawings and 5 letters by Degas were accomplished here in 1872-1873. Although we host parties up to 500, most of our weddings are 100 to 250 guests, although we accept smaller weddings as well. With onsite catering, we specialize in 5 Star service and combine the formality of our parlors, featured in Degas' painting of "The Song Rehearsal", to the less formal courtyard ceremony and receptions, hosted between the 2 houses that flank the courtyard.. Our art gallery is used for larger events of over 125. Off street parking is included, as well as our wedding coordinator. The Degas House "Dressing of the Bride" event is hosted in our Bridal Suite, complete with private balcony, champagne and a selection of food for the bride and her bridesmaids and family members and friends. Rehearsal Dinners, Brunches for the "Morning After", and Bachlorette parties and overnight stays are other events we offer. Also, many "Second Lines" complete with sparklers and champagne are frequently seen here at the Degas House. Please look for us at Degashouse.com. Also, we welcome your calls, as we prefer to do business in a personalized manner! 504-821-5009. Thanks for reading!
