CUSTOM HOTEL KEY CARDS: As Editor Leigh Duncan also spoke of in her Editor’s Letter of the new issue of Orlando Wedding [on stands now], more brides and groom’s are personalizing their weddings. allows you to customize your guests’ hotel key cards with pictures, text or both (portrait and landscape designs are both available). It’s also a unique keepsake guests can take with them to remember your special day. Set up and ordering is so simple – send any photo you want (professional shots not necessary), copy and will create and ship the key cards to your hotel of choice. The best part is that works directly with your hotel to provide correctly coded keycards that will work with their system. For photo key cards, pricing starts at $5.95/card (for quantities of 30-50 cards) and $3.95/card (for quantities of 30-50 cards) for text-only key cards. Be sure to allow at least 3 weeks for production and delivery of your cards, so order early and alert your hotel contact that you will be using custom ordered keycards instead of theirs.

PRE-PETALED AISLE RUNNERS: Dreaming about walking down a rose-petaled aisle? Now you can, in an eco-friendly way that conforms with some venue’s restrictions – sometimes venues don’t allow real petals for fear it will ruin their floors/carpets, etc.. Petal Happy is the first provider of pre-petaled carpets and aisle runners, and it’s becoming one of the most sought-after ceremony décor items. It’s perfect for defining an aisle at garden and beach weddings, the grand entryway at your reception or as a special pattern to enhance any venue as a décor item. Each carpet is hand-made with life-like petals carefully sewn to the fabric base. Even though each carpet is delicately made, they are durable, easy to roll up and cart around as needed. Each carpet can also be securely attached in place so that it won’t move as you walk across it (see the Accessories section of Petal Happy’s website). The carpets are available in 12 colors and a variety of patterns and designs, so you can easily match it to your wedding theme and needs. For more information, visit
