I just had my daughter's wedding at Blithewald and Karen Belivance who is the wedding coordinator and her asistant Ann Marie were HORRIBLE to work with. Our wedding cost over $85,000 and they treated our family and our vendors TERRIBLY!!! I will be glad to give you my list of grievances but lets start with the fact that the wedding must end at 10:30 and every venror, every guest, every table, chair, piece of linen, every scrap has to be off the property by 11! at 11:10 my daughter, the bride was told to get her and her vendors off her property NOW! Sweet isnt she? She says yes to things in the beginning then renegs 6 days before the wedding. That would be our liquor vendor.... Good thing my daughters father is a lawyer! Karen Belivance was actually enjoying being mean! If you fight back with her she eventually backs down, but she makes you so nervous and upset that its horrible....my advise is If you WIN a FREE WEDDING AT BLITHEWALD MANSION IN BRISTOL, RI...RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!!!!!! Place is a JOKE Denise Marchetti

The house is nice, but the gardens are amazing. Unfortunately I was there late in the season, so I didn't get to see the gardens in all of their glory. I will definately have to go back.
