SMP Welcomes Our Advertisers + Giveaways!
May 11, 2013
Happy Saturday, lovely SMPers! I couldn't be more excited that the weekend is finally here because a) I get to stay in my PJs all day and b) I'm beyond excited to introduce you to three amazing advertisers brand-new to the SMP family! A big, huge welcome to J.Crew Weddings and Parties, Gift Gather, and Mariposa! So grab a big mug of coffee, get cozy and let's get acquainted, shall we?!


Let's dive right in this morning with wedding wear staple  J.Crew Weddings and Parties and their to.die.for collection of gowns, bridesmaids dresses, menswear as well as flower girl + ring bearer gear! With totally unique, inspired and on-trend attire for your entire bridal party, J.Crew has an amazing variety of styles, silhouettes and fabrics to suit every personality and setting!

From mix and match maids (in the prettiest hues and seasonal fabrics) to the sweetest dresses and suits for your littlest attendants, J.Crew Weddings & Parties has you covered. And since each collection is more gorgeous than the next, you'll find the perfect outfits for your entire bridal party that they'll actually get to wear again (amazing, I know!). Head on over and start picking out your favorites — I'll be sure to meet you there!


This next amazing advertiser is giving me a serious case of registry envy because with Gift Gather, it's all about getting your DREAM gift through the collective efforts of your family + friends — a tropical honeymoon, a new house, money toward your wedding celebration or even a donation to your favorite charity! The perfect alternative to a traditional registry, Gift Gather celebrates the gift giving experience and helps you get what you really want. I mean, why couldn't this have been around when I got married?!
Signing up for Gift Gather is easy as pie, the service is totally free, and transactions are safe and secure! You'll even get your own custom URL and a beautiful, ad-free Gift Page that you can share with family and friends via email, Facebook or Twitter, and you can make and share a personalized video telling guests about your gift! How cool is that?!  Head over here and start gathering you dream gifts, my dears!

A GIVEAWAY! As a lover of all things gift-giving, I'm seriously swooning over our next introduction — Mariposa. The stunning line of unique giftables (think frames, serving trays and napkin boxes), are all handmade in Mexico from 100% recycled aluminum and glass! The beautiful pieces are easy to care for (they don't tarnish and come in gorgeous protective flannel sleeves for storage!) and are easy to personalize with a couple's monogram or wedding date. With styles to match any personality and price points to meet any budget, you're bound to find the perfect gift (and maybe even a little something for yourself!).
OK, now for the exciting news! Mariposa is hosting a Best Wedding Gifts Pin It to Win It Contest and giving away a $500 Mariposa gift certificate! To enter, simply follow Mariposa on Pinterest and create a board called "Mariposa Best Wedding Gifts" and pin at least 10 of your best wedding gift ideas (from any website!). Then head over to the Mariposa contest page where you'll enter your info and the URL of your board for your chance to win! Contest runs from May 1, 2013 until July 31, 2013. A winner will be announced on August 2, 2013. Best of luck, my dears! xo
