Hey. I am getting married at the Glen Manor House in portsmouth RI in November 2013. Would love to hear from other Brides and your vendor choices!
Meeting with two photographers this week to review their work (Dodge Imagery and Rock Ridge Photography) and hope to pick one of them, and we already have a caterer–Foodworks.
Any suggestions for bands, florists, hair, makeup, renting linens etc..!
Also would love to hear about your experience planning or having a wedding at Glen Manor!!

For the rehearsal dinner i think we are going to have it at Foodworks or at least have them cater it somewhere. Was thinking about going to Fluke wine bar after the rehearsal dinner with the bridal party/any friends or family that are in town to get everyone together that is not invited to the rehearsal.
After the wedding on Saturday night was contemplating picking a bar in Newport for our guests to meet up at was thinking Buskers. Have you ever been? Just want a fun, rowdy place for our friends to get one more last hoorah in before the end of the night 🙂
For guests trying to find things to do in the area, i put a bunch of the local attractions on our website. The mansion tours, local winerys, brewery tours, thames street shops etc…
What are you wedding colors? Mine are basically, black and white, with a little bit of pink/grey
