What a week! It’s the start of a new fresh-faced Polkadot Bride site, and we’re all looking ahead to 2014 with excitement and anticipation! Combine this unveiling with the crazy lead up to Christmas, work parties ( it’s our turn this weekend – yay!), catching up with friends and family AND the wedding season in full swing, and you have a very busy patterned team! You can read all about our antics this year in our final newsletter that went out yesterday (to sign up, simply click on Newsletter Sign Up button on our front page for all the inbox goodness), with so much happening, it’s hard to believe it was only one year.
Take a trip down memory lane for this week at least, and enjoy one of our last roundups for the year!
