I started working with Chad Bordelon and his staff in February 2012, to plan my wedding in September of 2012. I selected the Fleur De Lis Event Center , because of the timely response and detailed information that I received. I called several other places and did not get a response or it was days later. Chad responded to me with in a hour! I went to other events here and the food was great and service was also top notch. We decided to use Chad , we were not disappointed ! I planned for an outside wedding at the Lake Front in Mandeville and to have the reception at the Fleur De Lis Event Center, in the Jazz room.
Leading up to our big day we had everything ready to go , however the night before our wedding day the sky opened up and it rained and rained ! My fiancé, called Chad at the Fleur De Lis Event Center and within a few short hours before the wedding was to start, the wedding was moved. Nothing was missed down to the smallest detail ,was taken care of. Chad and all of his assistants did a wonderful job accommodating us last minute. To our guests or anyone who didn’t know the plans were changed , you would have not known it. The wedding was wonderful! The food and services were all great! I cannot say enough about the staff and what a great job everyone did! I would recommend Chad and his staff for any event, not just weddings!

I don't normally write reviews, but the Fleur de Lis event center went so above and beyond any expectations that I am forced to. Chad Bordelon and his staff made me and my wife truly feel like celebrities. The food was excellent, and had a lot to choose from. The DJ was amazing and had the dance floor packed the entire time. I cannot think of one thing that they could have done better. It was truly the best day of my life.

This is the best place to have a wedding! From the minute I first started booking, the staff at the Fleur de Lis were amazing! The outdoor wedding was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff were extremely professional. Kendra and her bridal staff were constantly working to make the night amazing. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, I highly recommend the Fleur De Lis Event Center! They helped provide the wedding of my dreams.

The fleur de Lis center made my wedding day dreams come true. The creole style food was delicious, the bartenders were fast, and the New Orleans atmosphere was amazing. We had the ceremony in the courtyard and it was so beautiful I thought I was dreaming. The staff are very attentive, and help with ever detail to make your special day the best it could ever be. There is not one bed thing to say about this place, because it was absolutely perfect.

My wedding was truely "Awesome" Words cannot express how satisfied my Husband and I were, it was worth every penny our parents spent. I don't say that in fun, I understand how hard my parents worked to give me my dream night and seeing them and all their friends dance made my night as well. WE had over 400 attend and my mom and I got tons e-mails and texts about how awesome everything was. I know it seems crazy but even months later, I can't think of a thing I would have changed (well other than a longer honeymoon!!!)
But, really every detailed promised from, the day we booked, to leaving in the Limo was handled, with such class. I could not recommend using Fleur de Lis event center any higher.
Thanks again to all the Staff at the Fleur de Lis Event Center give any bride whose considering you guys my number anytime!

Our wedding day was absolutely amazing! From day one I never had any doubt that it would have been anything less. Guests were wowed by the starlight ceiling, ambiance, and staff. We could have not picked a better wedding venue on the Northshore.

I was married at FDL August 2nd. They made everything so easy for me in the week leading up to the wedding. The venue was decorated exactly how I wanted, Stephen was great as a DJ, & Kendra was the perfect bridal coordinator. Guests had nothing but good things to tell me when I came back from my honeymoon from how good the food was, to how attentive the staff was. 5 stars all around!

was married at the Fleur de lis event center January 26, 2013. I must say my wedding was better than any fantasy I had about it as a little girl and it was all thanks to the Fleur de lis event center. The place was gorgeous and there were many options for ceremony and reception. The staff took all my ideas and wants for the wedding and made them all happen. They also helped with the stress of all the wedding planning. They were always there to answer any questions and to help make my day special. The food was amazingly delicious and they had lots of options!!After my wedding all my guest complimented everything about the Event Center. They loved the staff, place, and food as well. I would recommend the Event Center to everyone!! I have experienced other weddings at the Event Center and other weddings at different venues in the area and the Event Center was defiantly the BEST!!!!

I am so glad that my husband and I had our special day at Fleur de Lis Event Center. The food and service was absolutely top notch! Kendra completely put my mind at ease during the reception and never let my glass get half empty. The food was absolutely incredible. My friends and family are still talking about how wonderful everything was.

When I first booked FDLC back in April of 2012, I was concerned. I have read a couple of bad reviews and I had lots of questions. Little did I know, that everything would turn out ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!! FDLC is so much more than a venue!!! They are committed to serving the bride, groom and ALL of their guests. We did our ceremony and reception at the FDLC. FDLC asks the bride and groom to fill out a questionnaire/portfolio that includes ALL the details for your big day. I must say I was VERY specific but I was not expecting my expectations/wants to be EXCEEDED. The minute we got down with the ceremony my husband and I both had a drink in our hand (given to us from our bridal consultant at the FDLC) and we had a private dinner with everything we said we liked to eat-- from the steak, to the pinot grigio (and pinot noir-- I actually listed one OR the other), to the augratin potatoes-- they did it ALL. Our parents were also well taken care of by a their own personal waiter. Of course the night ended with a cruise to our final destination in a limo (provided by the FDLC). We had an absolute amazing time and our big day was better than we could have imagined. We were so pleased with the service we sent thank you notes to them. Do you and your family a favor-- book your wedding at the FDLC, it's worth every penny!

I spent weeks trying to find the right venue for my wedding. Living between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, I figured there would be tons of places. However, many of the venues seemed plain. Nothing special or beautiful about them. Just a place to hold people and dance. I had been to enough weddings that I wanted something more. I wanted people to have fun and be swept away by the atmosphere. My mom really wanted the Fleur de Lis because she went to an event there. I wasn't sure. How could some beautiful venue be in Mandeville but I've never seen or heard of it? From the first time I walked in, I was done. I didn't want to look anywhere else. It's tall "star lit" ceilings were my favorite. Chad was awesome. He worked with us for anything we needed. I loved my wedding! I don't know how I would have made it through to the day without all of their help. Thank you for everything Fleur de lis!

Le Fleur de Lis Event Center: This venue provided the space for my reception and also catered the event. It was perfect! The food was delectable and the venue provided the perfect lighting, decoration, etc. to create the best atmosphere possible at my reception. This venue was the best deal for my budget.

Fleur De Lis Event Center exceeded my expectations by far. I had my wedding there in June and the service and food was out standing!!
Chad stands by all his values when he spoke to my family and I and stood by every word he said. In fact they went above and beyond what I expected.
I rented the Ponchartrain room which came with the large courtyard for my ceremony, the beautiful grand staircase, the large bridal suite to get ready in with the shower to freshen up after decorating, along with the ball room furnished with an amazing lighting and music system.
I love how they took care of every detail. I was a very organized bride and every detail that I needed taken care of they did a great job. I loved that they gave the groom and groomsmen a pitcher of beer before the ceremony so things didn't get to crazy with them. I love that the coordinator spoke to all my vendors about arrival times so i didn't have to. I never got one complaint about my wedding other than me not liking my Officiate, but I hired her(bad move).
Every guest raved for months after about the food, service, and ambiance(including the starlit cealing that made it a magical night) of the event center. The fact that my parents and the in laws had their own attendants is amazing. Everyone always had a drink in their hand and full bellies. The reserved meal for the bride and groom was delicious and very special to us. We loved having that 10 mins alone.
The entire night I didn't have to worry about anything the coordinator would come and grab me and let me know what was next time after time. I was very concerned about becoming hot on the dance floor being that i have curly hair that doesn't do well with heat and Chad assured me i had nothing to worry about and even after dancing like crazy I was frizz free!! It was great!!!! After the event the limo was packed with our food and bags with everything we needed. My mom even told me that they packed everything into her car after including all decorations, gifts and any extras. Thank you Fleur De Lis for making our very special night amazing!

Our glass was never empty!
