At SMP, we take our jobs very serious… we work round-the-clock to bring you gorgeous weddings, stylish inspiration, and lots of fabulous finds.  The same goes for our advertisers!  And we couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to a few of our newbies!

Let’s face, sometimes it’s hard to ask for what you really want for your wedding. So the geniuses behind Deposit A Gift have created a cash registry that functions like a department store registry.  It is easy on gift-givers, but allows couples to register for anything — from honeymoons to home down payments.  Pure brilliance!

Deposit A Gift is incredibly user friendly, and offers a great alternative to traditional registries.  Another huge plus…a free wedding website is included!  Yay!  Deposit A Gift is ideal for couples who already live together and have all their pots and pans, blenders and wine glasses.  Simply put, it’s super smooth way to get what you really need in your life.

There is nothing better than eating pizza (or anything) off gorgeous tableware.  For over 100 years, Noritake has been bringing beauty and quality to dinner tables around the world. They offer a fabulous selection of patterns… it’s hard not to fall in love with all of them!

Check out their newly designed website which features best-sellers Platinum Wave and the Colorwave collection.  The Colorwave collection can be used for everyday and features a variety of color and shape options for creating a customized set of dinnerware.  Are you ready to host a dinner party yet?!

According to a recent survey, almost half of all brides have committed to going “green” this year.  If you are one of those brides, look no further!  The Green Bride Guide has launched the Green Wedding Gift Shop and Registry! From non-toxic cookware and recycled wine glasses to earth-friendly fine china and organic cotton textiles, the shop features hundreds of eco-friendly home goods.  You are not only helping save the planet but you are getting some pretty fabulous gifts too!

GBG is also the first store to offer free carbon-neutral shipping with every purchase.  The Green Bride Guide registry provides detailed information about each product, including how it is made, where it is made, and what materials were used in its production.  We absolutely adore companies that are committed to environmental and social responsibility!

By now, you know that we are all about accessories and fabulous handmade jewels.  We are psyched that we found Ken and Dana Designs from NYC. Honestly, nothing says love like hand-made jewelry.  Ken and Dana Designs are a design collective with roots based in NYC, Hong Kong and Maine with over five years in the jewelry business.

They make jewelry with meaning and find parallels between the sculptural lines of their work to the natural ebb and flow of love and relationships.  Creating unique pieces that push the envelop on design while still focusing on femininity, quality, practicality is the goal.  Custom designed jewelry can be stunning like this and not break the bank.  Ken and Dana design for every budget, and offer engagement rings starting at just a few hundred dollars.  Hand-made and affordable?!  Ah-mazing!

So a HUGE welcome to all of our newest advertising partners. We are thrilled to have you here at SMP!
