If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times…everyone tells you that your wedding will go by like a blur. And in that blur of fun, friends and family, you don’t want to miss out on moments like your friends singing your sorority cheer at the bar, or forget what was said while you were primping with your maids or during those moments waiting with your dad in the back of the church. And with Storymix Media as a part of your wedding experience, they won’t be lost forever!

Storymix Media is a fun, affordable wedding video alternative that with popular packages starting at $299, won’t leave you worrying about how to fit a video into your budget. Storymix sends you cameras that your friends and family use to capture all of the fun and touching moments through out the day. After the wedding, you get to help choose which scenes should be included, and then Storymix takes care of all the hard stuff by creating a custom edited video. You also get the raw footage with bloopers! And, to make things even better, Storymix is hosting a giveaway just for SMP Readers! Just go to the Storymix SMP Contest Page, enter a few bits of info and you’ll be entered to win a FREE Video Save the Date or Slideshow. Plus, everyone who enters will be sent a coupon for 20% off a Storymix wedding video! Contest ends October 19th!

Besides tees, tanks, hoodies and robes, they are also chock-full of tote bags, bathing suits, favors and just about anything else you can think of.

And now, for a big, big hit of Fashion on this Saturday morning, we have Portobello to share with you. Designer Susan Yin, armed with a passion and flair for design since she was a child, decided to follow in the foot steps of her uncle as an artist, and boy, are we glad she did. With Portobello (named after the world famous street markets at Portobello Road, Notting Hill) she was able to realize her dream of becoming a bridal designer and create accessories for both weddings and special occasions that are sure to bring a smile to your face as well as a rapid pulse rate.


With Hair adornments, and diamante encrusted headpieces of both vintage and ethereal themes, Portobello will totally blow you away with the beauty and creativity that are oozing from each and every piece. These designs are free form and inspired by nature and beautifully blend both vintage and modern elements to produce chic, graceful and elegant styles that are anything but tame. And since you are destined to love these beauties as much as we do, Portobello is offering SMP Readers a Promo Code! Simply use the Discount Code SMP15 before October 15th and you’ll get 15% off all designs! It’s your lucky day!
