Meet Aisle Society

by | Blog News, Bride, Inspiration Shoot,



I’ve been hinting at it for the past nine months, but this month it’s come to life, and today, I’m sharing every detail with you! Let me introduce you to brand new wedding inspiration  site Aisle Society!

Together with 30+ wedding bloggers from around the world, we have been working our tails off for the past nine months to create Aisle Society. Aisle Society isn’t another wedding blog, it’s a brand new wedding inspiration site bringing together the features from some of your most loved blogs (including Polka Dot Bride!).

Today I’m proud to share the gorgeous brand shoot that took place in Chicago late last year as I share a little more about what you’ll love about Aisle Society!





Aisle Society is all about finding the best wedding inspiration easily – you can sort weddings by style, location, colour. You can find all the posts that feature details (down to the most random – like balloon letters and sequin wedding dresses) without being flooded by content that isn’t relevant to you. Want to find out who made that dress? Where that ring is from? We credit every single vendor every single time!




When you sign up to the site, you gain access to your very own society – from here you can follow everything from your favourite bloggers, your favourite colours, locations, style, details like peonies and tiered cakes and even vendors (who you can inquire with directly!)! So you’ll always see a highly curated feed that is crafted just to your own personal style.





You’re a wedding vendor? We’re passionate about making sure every single person involved in a shoot is credited (just check out that credit list below!) and it’s part of the reason we created Aisle Society. Once you’re featured on Aisle Society, you’ll receive access to your own profile page which allows couples to click through to your website, learn more about you, see your features across the site and send you inquiries directly!





Diversity is key at Aisle Society – we have bloggers in Australia, USA, South Africa, England – the list goes on! Blogs that are focused purely on Indian weddings, ones that are all about coastal celebrations, another that is purely about classic weddings. There’s gender equality focused titles, publications focused on tropical celebrations, on destination weddings and even vintage weddings. We’re about as diverse as it gets, so you’re always assured to see fresh content, daily, with different ideas!

Alyce & Scott’s Rustic Inglewood Inn Wedding

by | Australia - South Australia, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Rustic Inglewood Inn Wedding078

Alyce & Scott

The stunning setting of a beautiful venue set the scene for Alyce’s and Scott’s rustic Inglewood Inn wedding. Lucinda May Photography captured the gorgeous garden and forest backdrop which was just the place for Alyce’s and Scott’s special kind of romance.

Alyce tells the story of how they came to be. “We initially were in the same class in primary school, then reconnected years later at the local pub. A friend of mine pushed me into Scott, spilling his drink all over him. I immediately apologised by buying him another drink. His reaction was “that’s ok, your hot!” (so romantic) We got chatting from there.”

The bride chose a lace gown from Red Pearl Couture telling, “My dress was a custom made French lace gown in ivory with a key hole back. The experience was fantastic. Sanela at Red Pearl Couture did a fantastic job right from the beginning. She is very talented!”

Deidre May officiated the ceremony, the bride remembering, “Our ceremony was beautiful, it was just how we imagined it. With our close family and friends being there and apart of it made it really special. Our nephew Charlie walked down the aisle first and was held by his dad and best man Lee, which was really cute. We had two readings – one from Scott’s cousin Emma called “I love You” by Deanne Laura Gilbert. The second reading was by our good friend Alaina called “These Are The Hands”.”

Alyce and Scott chose Inglewood Inn for their wedding, remarking, “The Inglewood Inn was a stunning venue for our ceremony and reception. It was perfect for our theme and was lovely to look over the Para River and Adelaide Hills. We loved the historic feel. The whole experience with the Inglewood Inn was fantastic, we couldn’t rate the staff and owners more highly.”

“There was a goat on the property of The Inglewood Inn that escaped from its enclosure to join our guests during pre-dinner drinks on the lawns. The guests had a good laugh and Milly the function co-ordinator got him safely back into his enclosure. (We had enough time for a quick photo with him!).”

Vera Wang Bride Spring 2017 Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Vera Wang Bridal Gowns 2017001

If there is a designer who has become known for the bold, the beyond, the dramatic – it’s Vera Wang and her beautiful Spring 2017 Bridal Collection keeps true to her bold sense of dramatic style.

Described as “Courtly Love, Modern Grandeur, Sheer Seduction, Secret Rendezvous, Silent Signals, Day for Night, Gardens of Regal Delights.” The collection launched with a short film titled Désir à l’Anglaise (see it on the website) which was created by the designer and directed by Gordon von Steiner and tells the inspiration behind the collections – the grandeur of the monarchy, the regal shapes and structure and the mystery of it all.

The 2017 Spring collections follows this inspiration with corset bodices, wide peplum skirts of boning and lace, delicate flower paillettes, hand appliqued lace sleeves, basque waistlines and bold high necklines. Bralettes, belts with crystal studded buckles and neck ruffs complete the regal mood.

The Vera Wang Spring 2016 Collection will be available in Australia from April 2016 onward.

Vendor of the Week – Pepper & Salt Restaurant

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday Dotties! I am so excited about this week – it’s the first time in a long time I have every day stretching ahead of me, and you can bet I am going to make the most of it!

A wedding in amongst the autumn leaves and rain – a few weekends ago we took a trip to Canberra and experienced the delights of this lovely city. Back at home it’s time to take a break in wedding planning while we take some time out as we highlight and show off the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory.  We have Cinematographers, we have Hair and Beauty, we have Gift Registries and Catering – we even have Menswear and Transport! Our Directory is filling up with vendors who are eager to help you with your wedding plans.

Check out Ms Polka Dot’s Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!
