Hoping someone can help us out. We are looking for a wedding venue in either Rhode Island (Newport, Bristol, etc) or Mass (Cape area) for a beachy/casual wedding on a budget. We want it to be classy and elegant but with a beachy casual feel (if that makes sense). I would love to have a ceremony on the beach then be close enough to the reception area. Trying to make it as affordable as possible. Some places I have already looked into is Atlantic Beach Club, Easton Beach Rotunda. Open to any suggestions!!!!! Thanks ladies!

We’re at the North Beach Clubhouse in Narragansett. It’s small and plain with a huge deck and right on the beach. Down the street from the Towers. Both are significantly more affordable than anything in Newport.
I also looked at Spain in Narragansett. They are very reasonable, I think the quote I got was like $50 for a full dinner including wine or sangria. The only problem is they don’t do Sat. evening because they are a restaurant but their food is good and they have a nice location with ample parking.
Alternatively, have you looked into renting a house on the beach for a week and doing a tented reception in the yard? This could get costly but could also be a lot of fun.
