I think I’m actually trying to get into Spring (not that the weather is helping) with my sudden trend of picking bouquet shots for Friday Roundups. It’ds been a busy week at Polka Dot Bride and we’re starting to plan out our 2013 content which to be honest scares me so I’d rather not think about it. I mean, I haven’t started Christmas shopping yet! (Have you? got any tips for me?)

Something light hearted for our film of the week. I know! We’ve seen lip dub proposals before but as someone that sings along to everything in her head and well for someone for whom a proposal just never gets old this one got me teary this week!

    Dear Miss PD,
    With a baby imminent and 13 adults and four children to buy for, here is how I did all of my Christmas shopping in under an hour: . It was all delivered in under a week, and I’m much happier with what I chose for everyone than if I’d gone in person (and I should add I that I do actually choose with each person in mind; there’s no generic ‘that’ll do’ here).
