Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is next week and while Mardi Gras itself has more of a "party hearty" vibe than a romantic wedding vibe, there's no place more romantic than the city of New Orleans. To help get you in the mood, we offer some great wedding music inspired by New Orleans and Mardi Gras.

It Had to Be You - Harry Connick Jr (anything Harry Connick Jr has a New Orleans feel)

Crescent City - Lucinda Williams

Go to the Mardi Gras - Professor Longhair

I'm Walkin' to New Orleans - Fats Domino

Iko Iko - Dixie Cups

King Creole - Elvis Presley
