We have several opportunities for you to get involved.
We realized that our millennial couples depend heavily on the internet for their wedding needs. However, wedding shopping consists of more than bridesmaids dresses and bouquets. Our couples are looking for cultured invitations, and stationery that reflects who they are, custom and handcrafted items for bridesmaid proposals and meaningful gifts and favors for the people who have their backs through the process, their not looking for just any gift... They want meaningful gifts that have value even after the festivities have ended.
We created the Shades of You Marketplace™ with two goals in mind, creating a cultured marketplace for our couples and their families to find unique items for all of the milestones from engagement to wedding and beyond! We believe that atmosphere you shop in as important as the things you purchase. And second, to provide a platform for entrepreneurs that feature their products in small community style setting where they have the best chance of being seen in a market they may not have considered. We're keeping our pricing competitive and reasonable so that our sellers can pass those savings on to our customers.
We created the Linkx™ Bridal Directory to list local entrepreneurs and service providers for those things you'd prefer to do in person, the old-fashioned way.
We're old school... and although we are adapting to the new way of doing things there are some traditions worth keeping. That's why we created our "vendor shout out" page. We encourage you to share those vendors who go over and above to make your experience pleasant. We still believe that "word of mouth is the best referral and the best way to get the word out in our communities.
We believe that's how you build a strong community. So that's who we are in a nutshell... If it sounds good, come and join our community.
