The Ocean State has a history of attracting visitors and one look at this beautiful state will tell you why. With WeddingWire's help, you can plan for your Rhode Island wedding to be an outstanding event.
The coastal town of Newport is home to the America's Cup-sailing's ultimate prize. Because of this, Newport has a vacation air about it, and has been called America's First Resort. Newport is known as an ideal wedding location, and there are a plethora of Rhode Island wedding venues available. Hotel Viking, in the Historic Hill neighborhood, is a perfect venue where historic charm meets modern comforts. Hotel Viking offers a beautiful 1869 chapel, two ballrooms, and three banquet rooms for your Rhode Island wedding. Belle Mer-a stunning event space with seven acres of styled lawns and multiple event venues-sits right on the water and provides guests with a luxurious experience for your wedding.
Just outside Newport, Narragansett Bay is a top destination for world travelers. You can stroll along beaches, go sailing, or explore the historic villages dotting the coast. Galilee Beach Club, on the southern end of Narragansett, is a quaint and lovely venue, perfect for intimate weddings on the coast. For larger weddings, The Towers has been an iconic venue for over a century. This incredible restored space offers a Great Hall, an outdoor courtyard and fountain, and captivating views of the ocean.
Providence, a culinary gem and the capital of Rhode Island, is home to Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design, helping to maintain Providence's young, stylish atmosphere. Sometimes called the "Renaissance City," Providence is a cultural paradise, offering world-class schools, museums, art centers, and more. Providence Public Library, a 140-year-old nonprofit library, is also a splendid venue for your Rhode Island wedding. The Grand Hall and indoor Garden Courtyard include breathtaking architecture and ornate, light-filled rooms. The Ship Room includes model ships and access to rare collections-a book lover's dream. Nature lovers should check out the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center, where you can hold your wedding inside the stunning glass greenhouse among 150 different species of plants. The Conservatory, Mediterranean Room, and outdoor terrace are all available for your Rhode Island wedding.
Because Rhode Island is on the coast, the weather can be capricious. Summers are typically warm and humid, while winters are cold and snowy. Summers tend toward the rainy, and severe storms and hurricane do happen. With this in mind, consider a venue with an indoor option for any season. If your wedding is on the water, celebrate the marine culture in Rhode Island by incorporating floats of fabric to mimic sails. Use blue, white, and tan to echo the colors of the coast. For a spring wedding, celebrate the state flower-the violet-by incorporating shades of purple in the flowers and fabrics, with lux silver touches throughout for a hint of vintage elegance.
Rhode Island cuisine is unique, with some foods you can't find anywhere else. No Rhode Island party is complete without pizza strips-focaccia-like bread with pizza sauce. There's no cheese and no other toppings, but these pizza strips are delicious. Another popular snack here are clam cakes-deep-fried balls of dough with chopped clams. Similarly, "stuffies" are a local treat of breadcrumbs, chopped quahog (the state mollusk), herbs and sausage, all packed into a quahog shell. If you want a drink unique to Rhode Island, coffee milk is the one. Coffee milk is just milk and coffee syrup-unless you get a coffee cabinet, which also includes ice cream. None of these regional treats are light, but they are delicious, and a Rhode Island wedding catering company can help you work them into your wedding menu. And once you're ready to get on the dance floor and dance yourself light again, a Rhode Island band can help you choose the songs to keep you and your guests moving.
The cost of a wedding in Rhode Island is almost $15,000 above the national average, coming in at $45,736, so prepared to save up for a wedding here. If you'd like help with saving money as you travel through Rhode Island, check out one of the Tourist Information Centers located throughout the state.
The cost of a marriage license in Rhode Island is approximately $24, but varies from county to county. Cash is required regardless, along with a government-issued ID, your birth certificate, and Social Security numbers. There's no waiting period after receiving your marriage license and it will remain valid for 90 days.
