San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
Wedding Spot, Inc., the first online site to help future brides and grooms search, price, and compare wedding venues, today announced it has raised $ 225,000 in seed funding from Internet veterans Erik Blachford (former CEO of Expedia), Eric Liaw (Institutional Venture Partners), and David Rodnitzky (Founder & CEO of 3Q Digital). This is the first round of funding for Wedding Spot (http://www.wedding-spot.com) and will help the Company expand nationally after its successful launch in California and New York.
Since August 2013, Wedding Spot has worked directly with hundreds of venues to provide transparency in pricing to help newly engaged couples find their perfect wedding venue. For the first time, couples can retrieve price quotes from venues without having to spend hours on the phone, sending emails, or tracking down wedding information packets. Couples can build out their ideal wedding day, select specific services and options to price out each venue, and compare them to have an apples-to-apples view of the estimated costs. If the venue falls within their budget limit, they can book an appointment to view the venue with one click of a button. Wedding Spot has been a valuable resource while we were looking for a venue for our wedding day, said Nihil Patel, a Wedding Spot user. By using Wedding Spot we were able to narrow down the list of venues based on location, style, and price, and then book an appointment with the venues to determine our final choice. It has really been a great way to synthesize information. I would recommend Wedding Spot to every newly engaged couple looking to start the planning process. Patel and his fianc
