Gown by Amy-Jo Tatum
 Once upon a time there was a designer who lived in a boutique and antique shopper's paradise more commonly known as San Anselmo. Dubbed by some as the antique capital of California, I do have some fav shops these days. Studiolo is a treasure trove of home furnishings and one-of-a-kind gifts crafted by designers with an artisan's touch. They also incidentally feature a few of my pieces alongside everything else there is that's chic..  Thanks to owner, Rhonda Shipley and manager Suzanne Roger, Studiolo also has the answer to some new concepts in bridal registry. The philosophy is: contemporary brides who have been keeping house alongside their fiances for years don't necessarily need Cuisinarts as much as say an exclusive line of fine linens with monograms. In addition, this is also a stop for one-off furnishings and accessories you won't find anywhere else. Luckily if you're outside the beautiful SF Bay Area you can find Studiolo online.  Be ready when you visit to feast on everything from golden goblets to some gorgeous vintage jewelry.

My husband and I used Zankyou registry which I consider a new concept in wedding registry. We also didn't need any more stuff as we've been living together for 6 years but we did need money for our mortgage payment and also we donated money to charity UNICEF through our wedding registry. It's a very modern company.
