  • Wedding: October 2010 - The Atlantic Beach Club

@carl66602: Hi, I had my wedding at the Atlantic Beach Club, which is right on the water on the Newport line. They fall rigt into your budget, as I had 155 people for around that. If you have any questions about it, let me know! Good luck in your search! 🙂

@Starfish Wow, that’s impressive, I would have imagined ABC was more expensive.

Everything I looked at in NPT had site rental fees over 5k which solidified my decision to go with a Narragansett venue. But, I wanted to add Fatulli’s in Newport is the BEST place for wedding cake! So many flavors, great designs and free delivery on the island we were sold instantly at the tasting after having tasted 4 other bakeries in RI.

@slicey19: Just to be clear, our cost with the ABC was within that range, not the whole wedding. I’d have to look at my budget for the exact number. I hope you didn’t mean the whole wedding. The ABC was definitely the chepest we found in the Newport area. The site fees there are crazy!

@carl66602:  Hi there!  Starfish’s suggestion of the ABC is a really good one!  It’s so pretty there right on the beach!  If you are still looking for a few places, check out the “RI Venue Suggestions” thread (just a few down from the top on the RI board).  I posted a handfull of places in the area that might be more affordable, as I just went through the search myself.  If you’re thinking Narragansett, check out the Towers or Kinney Bungalow for affordable options.  Good luck!

@carl66602: What do you mean spill over? If you mean people at the ABC coming into the wedding, not at all. I had mine in October, so the outside wasn’t open, but the wedding is held on the second floor away from regular diners. When I was at our wedding it didn’t feel anything like the ABC I knew from college. The room upstairs is much different.

Check out the Newport Yachting Center. The site fee for a Friday or Sunday is negotiable at $3000 and food packages start at $65pp. No ceremony fee and they supply the cake. We met with Adrienne several weeks ago and she’s fantastic. We’re going to visit again in May to see the tent set up for an actual wedding and we’re hoping to make out final venue decision then.
