If you are looking for a Newport wedding venue with ocean views, then The Rotunda Ballroom at Easton's Beach may fit your vision. Located directly on the Atlantic Ocean, it is less than one mile east of Historic Bellevue Avenue and offers a ballroom like no other. With its outside wrap-around deck, the Ballroom provides truly spectacular ocean views. The ballroom is a symmetrical 12 sided room of about 5,000 square feet (approximately 75’ wide in most areas) with a seating capacity of 175 people.

Beach weddings are a popular choice for brides and grooms, and with a space like the Ballroom's, beach weddings are their specialty. This beautiful beach setting can accommodate evening weddings or special events from the last weekend of April through to the end of October. 

The perks of holding your ceremony at Easton's Beach Rotunda Ballroom are seemingly endless.

Check out these incredibly attractive offerings:
  • A beautiful wrap-around deck with sweeping ocean views
  • A beach-side ceremony
  • Complimentary arched wedding trellis, dining tables & chairs
  • Bridal changing area
  • Carousel rides during the first hour of your event (when functioning)
  • You may use your own insured caterer
  • You can use either a live band or a dj
  • Exclusive use of the Rotunda Building, including Ballroom, wrap around deck, private restrooms and lower Rotunda staging area for caterers
  • Ample free parking

Hiring your own insured caterer and live band or DJ means lots of flexibility to create the perfect vision of your event.

Planning the perfect company outing is a great way to thank devoted employees for their day-to-day efforts and dedication. It can be viewed as a welcome break from the daily work routine, allows teams to build bonds, and feel appreciated. In order to free yourself up and enjoy the day of the outing, preparation and planning is key.

Today, we share a few helpful tips to guide you in planning a fun-filled day away for your staff.

Plan in Advance

Advance planning can be six months out for some groups. Granting yourself this time enables you to address any special requests or suggestions your teammates might have (i.e., dietary requirements, easily accessed location, etc.). Be sure to give your team plenty of notice once the date is picked as this ensures no one is accidentally excluded or left in the dark. 

Pick Your Venue

As they say, "location, location, location"! If you want to secure an ideal location, your chances are better when you reserve it well in advance. Whichever venue you select, keep in mind that the atmosphere of that venue sets the mood. The chosen location should reflect the likes of your team members and meet any activity needs you have planned.

In addition, the venue can pick can play a significant role in how successfully the event agenda rolls out (i.e., space for activities, room for catering, etc.).

Select Your Caterer

When determining the menu, you'll want to consider any specific dietary needs of your team members. Whether they are vegetarian or have food allergies, working with a caterer that allows for customization is best and makes planning a breeze. Don’t forget to keep your budget in mind, and work with your caterer on dishes that everyone can enjoy! 

B & M Catering is happy to offer full-service catering for events like yours, and we are ready to customize a menu to meet everyone's needs.

  •  Veggie Jambalaya
  •  Tex-Mex Vegetable Salad
  •  Baked Mac ‘N Cheese
  •  Red Bliss Potatoes with Onions

Wondering about the potential problem of a guest's shellfish allergy? No problem; we can cook the food separate from any shellfish, so there is no cross-contamination.

 

We weren't kidding when we said we could work with any request!

Planning Your Catering Budget

Things to Consider When Planning Your Catering Budget

Whether it's a community celebration, a corporate outing, or your wedding, knowing your budget and planning your menu will be an essential element for your success. B&M Catering knows a thing or two about guiding customers through the necessary steps for successfully hosting a perfect event. Below are some things to consider that will support you in pulling together a budget-friendly and delicious gathering!

Things to Consider When Planning Your Catering Budget


Know your guests.

How many guests are you expecting?
Will children be attending?
Will your guests be satisfied with a self-serve buffet, or are they a sit-down dinner crowd?

We will help you figure out what kind of event service you can plan that will best suit your needs.
Our event guides will talk you through thinking about considerations such as the level of formality, the number of guests, and their expectations. With these areas figured out ahead of time, you can feel calm and in control on the actual day of your event.

Dietary requirements and special accommodations.

You'll want to know in advance if anybody has any particular requirements. If children are present, we can help you figure out a separate menu. As for specialized dietary needs, keep count of the vegans, vegetarians, and diet-restricted guests when planning your menu. All of these considerations may impact the time required to prepare special requests and, thus, your budget.

Do you need wait staff for your event?

Staff costs are an often-missed area of budget planning. You'll want to confirm with your caterer how many staff may be necessary and a picture of what those separate costs may look be. Labor and staff costs may affect your budget for full-service events, so a proactive approach is key to keeping your budget in line with your expectations.

Location, location, location.

Believe it or not, location can impact your catering budget! A remote venue may require additional catering set-up considerations. Venues that are catering friendly and convenient in location will likely be more budget-friendly. 

If you have a special event coming up, we invite you to look at our full-service catering menus online and contact us with your questions. We are always happy to provide a quote and work with our customers to meet their needs.
