  • Wedding: August 2010

I’m getting married on August 6, 2010 at Astors’ Beechwood Mansion!  I live in Boston but my fiance and I spent every August in Newport and absolutely love it there!

Astors Nuptuals — I haven’t yet picked my rehearsal dinner venue, but do go to Newport a lot and have a few suggestions.  22 Bowens has excellent food and it is right on the waterfront.  It’s basically a classic steakhouse — I love it and will be checking it out as a rehearsal dinner option.  If you want something more casual, Brick Alley Pub has a few private rooms that can accommodate a large group.  This is not on the water and is more casual but the food is great and I go for lunch almost everytime I’m in Newport!  My co-worker had her rehearsal dinner there and did a lobster/clambake and said it was great.  I will be checking out a few places toward the end of the month so I will let you know if I have any other ideas.  Have you booked any other vendors yet?  A caterer?  If you have met with some caterers on Astors’ list I am interested to hear your experiences with them!

It is so fun to hear from all of you Newport brides!

Astors Nuptials, I agree with Beechwood Bride’s suggestions. 22’s is great.

I spent 4 years in Newport and have a couple other suggestions- If you want soemthing relaxed similar to a bbq, Kempenaar’s clambake has bbq options, lobster bake options or clambake options. http://www.newportclambakes.com/ I went there for a senior week activity, it was really fun. You can have music, either through and IPOD or DJ, plus they have horseshoes, volleyball and other fun games, its a fun settign for your guests to relax and get to know each other. It’s also a lot cheaper than other options.

Castle Hill is pricey, but has gorgeous views of the water and the Newport bridge. I may do my bridesmaid luncheon there.

Atlantic Beach Club is on the water and also has lobsterbake options. We arehaving our wedding and maybe day after brunch there.

  • Wedding: September 2010 - The Glen Manor House

Hi!

 

My finacee live in Chicago, but are planning a Rhode Island wedding for 9.25.2010!

 

I grew up in Providence and my family still lives there. We’re getting married at Manning Chapel on the Brown Universtiy Campus (where my parents were married in 1975) and then heading down to the Glen Manor House!

@Tee : my best friend had her wedding reception at Whispering Pines. It was absolutely fantastic! Almost everyone stayed overnight, and after the wedding we had a bonfire and told stories. Unbeatable!

I was also a RI bride, but from Massachusetts!  We were married in Newport last fall.  Florals by Alisa did our flowers and Sara Faella did hair & makeup – and they were both incredible, way beyond my expectations!  Totally recommend checking them out.

  • Wedding: July 2012

I’m from RI, Fiance is from CT and we live in MA! RI has our favorite place; the site of our first kiss, the place we first said “I love you” and where he proposed to me. We’re getting married at the Narragansett Towers!

  • Wedding: May 2012

Yay!  Congratulations fellow Rhody Brides-to-Be!

My fiance went to school at Roger Williams in Rhode Island but is originally from Mass.; I grew up in upstate NYC. We currently live in California and are planning a May 2012 wedding with a ceremony at South Ferry and reception at The Towers in Narragansett.  Eagerly awaiting October 11 when we FINALLY get to see these beautiful venues in person for the first time (yup, that’s right…we booked off of reviews, online pics, and my future in-laws going to visit for us).  Other vendors booked so far are Florals by Alisa, West Bay Gourmet, Moondance Productions (DJ), Susan Sancomb (photography), and Formal Hair Design. 

Congrats to all the other late 2011 and 2012 (and beyond) brides! : )

@IrishEMN:  You won’t be disappointed!!!  We have the exact same plan for September 2012 –  South Ferry Church followed by The Towers!  Susan Sancomb is AMAZING and West Bay Gourmet was definitely in our top two choices for catering. If you need suggestions or help with vendors I’m happy to be a local resource for you 🙂

I grew up in Rhody (and live in MA now) and we just booked Linden Place for May 2013.  Bristol is beautiful and we can’t wait!!!  I’ve already got half of my vendors booked!

Katie – I live in Bristol and you are so lucky to be getting married at Linden Place! It’s such a beautiful and elegant spot. We were thinking about having our wedding there but decided to go a little further away from home 🙂

yay RI!  haha!

I’m born and raised in Newport (well Middletown), and getting married here this summer! woohoo.

Still trying to decide on a place for rehearsal, and am probably way behind the eight ball.

 

Still open for suggestions for a cake, too!
