Discover Rhode Island’s nomination and selection process has started to find our favorite vendors in the wedding category.  Weddings are an important industry in Rhode Island, with over five thousand weddings expected to take place in just 2022 alone, which will bring in over $150 million to the local economy.  Local wedding vendors are the lifeblood of the industry, and there are thousands of dedicated local professionals who tirelessly serve the Rhode Island wedding industry.  Our goal through this process is to recognize the best in each category based on a number of important factors.  For this category, because wedding vendors from nearby states service the Rhode Island venues, we’re allowing them to be from neighboring states to some extent.  We’ll list our winners once the research is concluded, and we’ll also have a “Featured Wedding Professionals”  list that will allow for more exposure for those that meet a higher set of criteria.
