Wedding Quick Quote

The Grand Bohemian Hotel, located in downtown Orlando on Orange Avenue, is the first wedding venue in town to feature the new Wedding Quick Quote vanity website (vanity site meaning this is a website outside of the hotel’s site used specifically for giving quotes on wedding packages). This is big news for brides because the website’s functionality can bring instant answers to key questions, such as available dates, services, amenities and an estimated cost – all in a matter of minutes. It’s perfect for those brides doing wedding planning research during odd hours (nights, weekends) when a venue might not be open or busy with another event. Be prepared with dates and carefully review all the features, amenities and wedding packages The Grand Bohemian has to offer (visit the hotel’s website for this info, link listed below). Use the quote as a starting point to make sure this venue fits in your budget, needs, etc. Keep in mind, that it’s a rough estimate. You’ll need to work with the venue to iron out all the small details because the quote isn’t set in stone. Once you are given the quote, you have the opportunity to submit it for representative contact or to opt out completely. Check it out at


Alfred Angelo Expands Offerings

Dress designer Alfred Angelo has just announced the expansion of his bridal offerings to include full wedding invitation suites, bridal shower invites, customizable napkins, décor, cake tops, guest books and other wedding planning must-haves. A new website has been set up to shop for these items at To navigation tool allows brides to search by color scheme. What I love is that Alfred Angelo’s new products have met the personalization trend and demand by offering the ability to customize most items with monograms, photos, text and more. The pricing is reasonable, and there is even a category for budget products and DIY (do it yourself). My favorite items are the guest towels, which add a level of sophistication to any wedding, and the attendant gifts, which include options like the can cooler, business card holder and compacts that are more upscale and useable). This is another valuable resource for brides to have when searching for all their wedding necessities. Visit
