From glitzy Providence to majestic Newport, RI welcomes weddings

Little Rhode Island blooms with many opportunities for a lovely, memorable wedding, from luxury urban hotels in Providence to reception halls with decks leading right onto the beach in Misquamicut. Your first decision when picking a Rhode Island resort, hotel, or reception venue is the tastes of the bride and groom. High-rise and traditional? Informal and unique? Among the wonderful choices are a fabulous hotel on the water facing Newport harbor, or, near Newport but inland, a family-run vineyard in Middletown that invites you and your guests to its grape arbors, lawns, and views of pristine countryside.

Wedding planning experts and staff in all of these venues can help you put together all the essential details, from choosing music for a grand ballroom to arranging for lodging for guests and transportation via an interlinked air, rail, and highway system, with very easy access to Boston and New York City. Read the descriptions below and start narrowing your choices.
