“When you first walked in [to the 2013 Bridal Brunch] they handed you a mimosa (my type of bridal show already), and we were treated to passed and stationary hors d’oeuvres. There was absolutely no pressure to talk to anyone.
All the members of the Rhode Island Wedding Group were there wearing name tags so you could easily identify them. Essentially it was just a cocktail hour so you could walk around, talk to some other couples, some vendors if you wanted to and have fun.
Next we walked over to their main dining room where they had tables all set up. There was a bag on each chair with all of the Rhode Island Wedding Group’s vendor information in it. We had a delicious brunch and played games. (I love games! Adam and I both have a little competitiveness in us.)
They played their version of the Newlywed Game and called it the Nearly-Wed Game — what a blast! For every question you got right about your finance, they gave you a ticket to put into a penny social raffle. You only put your tickets in what you wanted to win. Luckily we got all three questions right so we put our tickets in three things we really wanted and won all of them.”

“Our overall experience with vendors from the Rhode Island Wedding group was amazing. They are all helpful, organized and do a remarkable job in making that day one to remember. We love how they all work with each other and they all have amazing things to say about one another.
My husband and I have been married for 8 months and we still have people telling us how amazing our wedding was, from the planning to the photos, and this is because of the great vendors we had. We started off as just hiring them but in the end they became good friends of ours and we can’t thank them enough.
We used Barbara (Perception Jewelry) to make my wedding party jewelry and she was WONDERFUL! She was extremely helpful with all my needs and her prices were extremely reasonable. The jewelry she made was beautiful and it was the final touches for my wedding attire. I would recommend Barbara to anyone looking to have fantastic jewelry made!
We found Curtiss from Eloquent Images while searching for wedding photographers in our area. When we met with him we loved that he was extremely down to earth and felt more like a good friend than a photographer. My fiancé and I told him we weren’t your “traditional wedding couple” and he knew exactly what we meant! His pictures were amazing, everything from our engagement session to our wedding, he did a wonderful job! His is also extremely reasonable in price and goes above and beyond his duties.
We used Infinite Events for our day-of planning, wishing tree and candy station. Andria is wonderful and words cannot describe the job she and her team did with everything. They are extremely organized and makes sure that your day is “perfect”. We had over 245 people at our wedding and everything went smooth because of her!! Andria went above and beyond for us and we can’t thank her enough. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Infinite Events for your wedding needs; your day will be ‘perfect’ with them.”

“A budget can certainly get blown out of the water when you want everything that you have seen and on top of that, any of the people that I worked with can tell you that my decision making skills are less than perfect!
It was so difficult for me to choose the right linen color, flower bloom, tuxedo color, honeymoon location, and the gown?!?!
Dear Lord, with so many options out there and everything that I had seen in past events I needed help!
Everyone that I worked with helped narrow down my options and stick to a realistic budget. I guess you can say that the Rhode Island Wedding Group made my blurred vision clearer!
Everyone always asks you what you would do differently/change if you could… well for me, not a thing!”

“We just wanted to write a quick thank you….with many more to follow…for making our wedding day perfect!!
I have to say, planning a wedding in only three months was an interesting adventure, but when it was all said and done, April 15th came together without a hitch and the day of our dreams unfolded right before our eyes!
From the early morning welcome from the amazing women at Calma Salon in Cranston who made us beautiful…to the effortless direction of the day by Melodi Caruso at Valley Country Club…who reminded me there was nothing else I needed to worry about, and made everything flow so smoothly…to the safe transportation at the end of the evening provided by RockStar Limo…not to mention the amazing efforts made by our friends and family…I personally have to say there was not a single moment that I felt stressed out or overwhelmed the entire day.
Every single person we have talked to raved about our wedding. They were constantly wowed by all of the unique contributions from the RI Wedding Group. The beautiful dress, the tuxes, the sparkling jewelry, the photo booth, the engagement video, the music, the party buses, the delicious food, the beautiful venue, the friendly staff, and the amazingly calm, cool and personable vendors in the RI Wedding Group that circled around the day’s events, making the day FLAWLESS!!
To say thank you does not even begin to describe how much this amazing opportunity has impacted our lives. We genuinely can say we not only had the privilege to work with some amazing wedding professionals, but were also lucky enough to make some friends along the way! Thank you all so much for your contributions to make our wedding day experience perfect from start to finish! We cannot wait to see all of the pictures and the video. We love you all!”

“The Rhode Island Wedding group exceeded our expectations. Curtiss captured every moment possible, Mike’s videography has us at the edge of our seats waiting for our video (we saw a very small glimpse of what is to come, that night) and Luke kept our guests as well as us on the dance floor all night.
We would recommend RIWG to anyone and are very happy with our decision to book them. We never felt like they were vendors at our wedding, although they are professional, they really put you at ease.
We were lucky enough to book, Curtiss from Eloquent Images, Mike from Artistic Video, and Luke from Luke’s Disc Jockey. The Rhode Island Wedding group exceeded our expectations.
The wedding reception at the Hotel Viking was amazing, the ballroom is gorgeous! The food was amazing; we still have guests telling us about how wonderful the hotel was. Linda Ferguson (from the Viking) worked with us from day one to make sure our wedding day was beautiful! Everything came together and we had an amazing time. The Hotel Viking is a historic elegant hotel!
We would recommend RIWG to anyone and are very happy with our decision to book them. We never felt like they were vendors at our wedding, although they are professional, they really put you at ease. We really do tell everyone about them.”

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being such a big help to me in planning and executing my wedding!
It was so convenient having so many talented vendors, who work together so frequently, at my fingertips, for a quote on their services or advice, or even for wedding ideas. I used several of the members from RIWG, and some of my own contacts. It was so easy. I actually could have booked the whole wedding with the group!
I used Helene’s Bridal for my Wedding gown, they were awesome to work with and so friendly and helpful. She referred me to Calma Salon Day Spa for my hair, makeup and nails, they were awesome to work with. I had my wedding party prettied up at the salon, and they offered snacks and mimosas!
From there I booked Arianna’s Gifts for my maids’ gifts, and they are still talking about the BLING flasks! So pretty!
I used Marc, from Groove Lighting for my beautiful mood lighting, which was the best investment!
I used Rock Star Limo, another great vendor, Meagan was a doll to work with.
Ann from Annie’s Escapes met my fiancé and myself to discuss our honeymoon. We were so impressed with the fact that she met us on our turf for coffee, and was not overwhelmed with our unending list of requirements.
We used Newport Tent for our cocktail tent. That day rained like crazy, but that beautiful tent kept us dry.
Another vendor I used was Perception Jewelry, I got gorgeous custom made jewelry for myself, my wedding party and my Mom from Barbara at Perception Jewelry! Stunning!
The group impressed me because they all know each other and have worked with each other on other weddings. The quality of the vendors was unbelievable. I did not know if anyone realizes how complicated planning a wedding can be, or how time consuming. This was like one stop shopping for a quality vendor. Excellent experience! Thank you all! I will spread the word!”
