Apr 19, 2001, 01:00 ET from 1-800-WEDDING

    ANAHEIM HILLS, Calif., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Wedding specialists can
 join a bridal referral service that guarantees them a specified number of
 bridal bookings a year or their membership is extended for free.
     "Our wedding specialists get much more than bride referrals and the
 booking guarantee proves it," says Donne Kerestic, President of 1-800-WEDDING
 and former wedding photographer who knows the value of a guaranteed booking
 firsthand. "Wedding vendors now have a guarantee that their membership
 investment will help bring them the return they want -- more bookings."
     Depending on which one of four membership plans a wedding specialist
 chooses, eight to 16 bridal bookings are guaranteed within a 12-month period.
 If the number of guaranteed bookings isn't met by that time, then monthly
 payments are suspended until the member receives the entire number of
 guaranteed bookings.
     Kerestic believes that the quality of the bride referrals and level of
 marketing support to its vendors is key in helping them turn referrals into
 bookings.
     Each membership plan provides an array of benefits to assist vendors in
 marketing and advertising their business to brides.  Benefits include:
 
     -- Web site development
     -- Online lead management and selling tools
     -- Marketing and promotional materials
     -- Free bridal shows
     -- One-on-one consulting services
     -- Direct Connect Feature-instant connection between brides and wedding
          specialists via phone
 
     One of the nation's largest and most comprehensive wedding resources, 1-
 800-WEDDING spends an average of $3 million annually in marketing and
 advertising programs throughout their eight markets.
