Pink Frosting Competition Winners!

by | Bride, Competitions


I’m so happy to announce the winners of our Pink Frosting competition! Kathryn had a tough time picking the winners, but the following entrants have each won a $100 gift voucher to the Pink Frosting online store!

The winners are….

Becky S

“I love the Luminous Black Mini Lantern Tea Light Holder. My parents are hosting an after party at their house when our reception ends at dusk. My parents live in a very woodsy dark area. It’d be great to hang these on shepherds hooks and create a pathway to their backyard patio.”


“I love so many things on the website. Having to choose one I’d choose

My man and I want to have a ceremony that means something to us. We’d like to have a wooden/lockable box at the ceremony that we fill with a letter to each other. The letters would have the reasons why we love each other; the things we admire and respect about the other; and some great memories we’ve shared together.

We’d put these flutes in the box and a bottle of wine (since we both love vineyards especially Banrock Station) and we’d put in some knick knacks and it would be a “Open in case of emergency” box and/or an “Open on your anniversary” box so we can add more to it (and drink the wine!).”


“Very much a one-stop shop. I love it. My fiance and I are moving home after a year in Europe (for work, not vacation) and we very much miss our family, friends and our dog! These Contemporary Chocolate Hanging Luminaries will set the perfect light for introducing two families from different cultures (American and European) to our life together. Some of our guests will be traveling very far and we want to do everything we can to make their travels memorable. These Luminaires are perfect for “lighting” the way icon smile Pink Frosting Competition Winners! to the barn where we will be celebrating!”



This is my favourite item by far and would go well with our “love bird” themed wedding. We’re getting married in September at a library, so we’re asking guests to write us “Sweet Tweets” (or messages)for our married lives together.

The bird cage greeting card holder would be used to house these “Sweet Tweet” cards.

The cards will then be made into a leather bound book so we can read back all the beautiful comments our guests have left us.”


“Our venue location is a tucked away winery in the mountains, and can be a little bit tricky to find. I would think a personalised sign would be a handy help for the directionally challenged, especially when my family can get lost on a drive to Woolies; alas hopefully a big sign (minus flashing lights) will guide them in the right direction!”

Thank you to all of the entrants and congratulations to our winners! We will be in touch soon with your prize details!

Stay tuned to Polka Dot Bride for more competitions and don’t forget to enter our Missoni Gift Pack competition from Top 3 By Design!

Snapshot Sunday – Enchanting Sparkle

The traditional dress of an Indian wedding never fails to take my breath away. The colour, the beading, the detail is amazing. This shot from Jimmy & Dripan’s wedding (see more here) shot by Ruby RIdeout’s Dazzling Images floored me this week.

Creative Colour – Blush Pink

blush pink text Creative Colour Blush Pink

A blush pink, soft as a baby’s cheek and ultra feminine.

Combine with:

- slightly darker pinks – think the inside petals of a rose

- white, in all its different shades from pink-white to off-white

- soft grey – embellish this with pink crystals, pink sashes, pink shoes to tie it into your pink scheme

- pale coffee/stone to balance any ‘sugary’ overtones

- touches of black – to add a counterpoint to all that sweetness

- silver or chrome

- glass and crystal

- vintage lace, crisp white or pale pink linen, candelabra

- keep dress styles simple – think Audrey Hepburn – to balance the ‘frothiness’ of the colour scheme. Think flat bows, under the bust, in your hair, shoes and jewellery that are a work of art, neckline or waist embellished with crystals and beading

- old ruby glass, old milk glass, depression glass, white crockery plain or with ornate edges, old mercury glass

- green wine or water glasses

- soft greens from olives through to fresh leaf greens, sage green

- peonies, roses, pink seed heads of various grasses, hydrangeas, orchids, hyacinths, in large voluptuous arrangements or simple single blooms in generous groups in silver or vintage glass containers, soft grey furry leaves, flannel flowers, jasmine, armfuls of frothy white flowers

- set up the bathroom at the venue with fragrant hand creams, soaps and tiny bottles of perfume for your guests to use

- white pebbles, white or pink candles, bowls of water floating with pink water lilies

- keep furniture in white and classically simple – no tizzy chair covers

- pearls, diamonds, (what about pink diamonds if you love the colour)

- sunshine, gardens, large shade trees, lily ponds, fountains

- silver dishes of musk lollies, sherbets, Turkish delight, pink iced petit fours or cupcakes, coconut ice, pink sparkling wine

- white shells, coral, starfish, pearlised shells, capiz shell plates or hanging pendants
