This was actually my first choice, but sometimes when you love something- you have to set it free....
Also, you have to listen to your purse strings (hey, I wanted to feed my guests too) and your fiances point of view too (imagine that!). TJ loved the Towers much more than Glen Manor and it was important we picked a place we BOTH loved.
I do still have a twinge of jealousy and a tear at my heart string when I hear of a bride getting married at the Glen Manor. But, I'm also really happy for her- knowing that this place is pure magic!
THE GLEN MANOR HOUSE
|inside view (one room)|
Capacity: 200 guests (but this means some guests sit outside)
Contact: Katie and Don
Ceremony: On site available, with an additional fee
Cocktail hour: Can be done on outside patios/in the garden
Getting Ready: Can be done on premise...an added bonus!
Personal note on price: I would say you can do Glen Manor on a "budget" but it might be really cutting other things from your wedding. It's also good to know everything is an added cost from valet, to security, to a mandatory $1m insurance policy. There are significant savings to be had on Friday nights and Sundays.
Location: Portsmouth, RI
