BRIDAL SUITE & GUESTROOM ACCOMMODATIONS
We are happy to offer a complimentary bridal suite with a special amenity on the night of your wedding. Parents of the bride and the groom will receive an upgrade to a junior suite. (Parents of the bride and the groom must request upgrade through our catering sales manager. Upgrade is based on availability and a one night stay.) At your request, sleeping rooms at a special rate may be arranged for your guests. These rates are based on ten or more rooms and are subject to availability.
AMENITIES & SERVICES
Omni Providence Hotel offers elegant complimentary floor-length table linens in brown or white, white napkins, and votive candles. Specialty chairs, colored napkins and other items may be arranged at an additional charge.
A private room may be reserved for your ceremony. A ceremony room fee will be assessed based on the room utilized. For ceremony turns (in which the ceremony and dinner take place in the same room), there is a banquet labor fee. Additional charges for ceremony sound and upgraded lighting will apply.
Personalized items such as: monogrammed champagne toast glasses, cake cutting knife and server, monogrammed cocktail napkins and any other pre-approved items you would like to enhance your event can be provided to the hotel during the week leading up to your wedding. Centerpieces that include a candle must be enclosed in glass to ensure no flame is open. Amenity baskets may be placed in the men’s and ladies’ rest rooms. We suggest these be low-cost items in disposable low-cost baskets, as our rest rooms are open to the general hotel population. A member of your wedding party should be designated to remove and secure gifts and gift envelopes once your guests are seated for dinner. Personal or monogrammed items should be removed from the banquet areas and secured at the conclusion of your event.
VALET & SELF PARKING
Valet and self-parking for overnight guests and non-overnight guests attending your wedding event is not included in the package price. Self-parking is available in the Rhode Island convention center garage.
The hotel may, in its sole discretion, require the group to take certain security measures in order to maintain security in light of the size or nature of the function. Such security measures may include the requirement to hire sufficient security personnel from a reputable agency that is approved by the hotel prior to the function.
Audio/visual equipment is available for rental through our in-house audio/visual Company – Encore Event Technologies. We will be pleased to arrange any of your requirements or put you in touch with an AV technician directly.
Omni Providence Hotel reserves the right to inspect and control all private functions. Liability for damage to the premises will be charged accordingly. The hotel will not permit the affixing of anything to the walls, floors, or ceiling with nails, staples, carpet tape, or other substances. Please consult the catering department for assistance in displaying of all materials

Q. What should I remember when looking for a reception site as well as my wedding ceremony?
A. In consideration of your guests, it is important that there be as little time as possible between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the cocktail hour. If there is too much time in between, guests will have nothing to do! There is plenty of time for all the pictures while your guests are having cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Many couples are now having pictures taken prior to the ceremony which allows the bridal party to join the cocktail hour.
