MAD-Marketing announced today that an online search for the ideal wedding destination has become easier as catering venues across the country feature the WeddingQuick Quote (WQQ) on their websites.

”I’ve been looking for something like this for years,” said Barry Strafacci, regional vice president of special projects at Convention Centers for Global Spectrum. “We’re all excited about adding the WeddingQuick Quote as our new online RFP tool. It will cut follow-up time and make planning an event or wedding much easier at our facilities.”

Currently, the RMB Regional Fairgrounds ( in Robstown-Corpus Christi, Texas and the Las Cruces Convention Center ( in New Mexico are participating. The Durham and Palm Beach County Convention Centers are in the set-up process, and more venues will be coming onboard the first of the year.

Independent venues, like the Vasari Country Club, in Bonita Springs, Fla. (, Margaret Gardens in New Orleans and the Grand Bohemian in Orlando have also joined the trend. Todd Blanton, club house manager at Vasari, recognized the importance of the next generation RFP.  “That’s why we selected the WQQ as our response tool,” says Blanton. “I’ve always considered Wedding Quick Quote as a 24/7 marketing tool offering brides insight to our ceremony and reception venue(s). It provides newly engaged couples the opportunity to evaluate our venue without obligation or sales pressure, while still generating leads for me to pursue and follow-up with in a professional fashion,” 

The internet is an environment of instant answers. Shoppers are researching most purchases online and if they can select a car model, color, extras and get a price, why not for a wedding?  “We saw a need and created the software to fill it. The WQQ allows a bride to pick and choose what she wants, day or night, and get an instant answer. However, the real benefit is to the venue, providing pre-qualified leads, reducing follow-up time thus shortening the sales cycle” states developer, Madeline Daryadel, a former director of catering.
