Founded in 2008, Rhode Island Wedding Group is an association of established wedding professionals devoted to connecting couples with high quality service providers in Southern New England. By limiting membership to only two companies per wedding specialty, and by offering membership to a variety of professionals from soloprenuers to large corporations, Rhode Island Wedding Group has created a well-rounded resource for couples looking to simplify wedding planning without sacrificing quality. Our member businesses engage in ongoing professional development to remain current with wedding trends and technology, and work tirelessly – both individually and collaboratively – to ensure that our clients’ weddings are the best in the region.
