The promotion begins in August.

(Press Release) NEW YORK – Wedding ring manufacturer Benchmark announces that it is the exclusive jewelry partner for The Knot Dream Wedding between Washington Mystics player, 2015 WNBA MVP and Olympic gold medalist Elena Delle Done and fiancé Amanda Clifton.

The Knot first broke the news earlier this year that the couple had been chosen to be the recipients of this year’s Dream Wedding. This will be the first same-sex couple to receive The Knot Dream Wedding.

“We are thrilled to partner with The Knot for The Knot Dream Wedding,” said A.J. Tosyali, president of Benchmark. “This wedding is so special. Not only have we always believed that ‘love is love,’ but we immediately fell in love with Elena and Amanda as we started to create the perfect symbols for their wedding. Like most millennial couples they wanted some personalized elements, so each ring will have meaningful symbols, unique to the couple, incorporated into the design.”

Jennifer Garrett, executive vice president, national enterprise, XO Group Inc., said: “We couldn’t be more delighted to bring Benchmark on as the exclusive jewelry partner for The Knot Dream Wedding. As a symbol of commitment and devotion, we’re excited to see how Benchmark and their expert craftsmen bring Elana and Amanda’s love and unique personalities into the designs of their wedding bands.”

The promotion of the couple’s nuptials, featuring the Benchmark wedding rings, will begin mid-August 2017 and end mid-November. Final coverage will run in the Spring 2018 issue of The Knot. Benchmark will be prominently featured in a sweepstakes, where one lucky entrant will win a Benchmark ring, in a documentary video that will showcase the rings, and in social media posts.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
