When I was younger, I would write out wedding themes in notebooks. I’d draw the table setup, choose the songs, write out pages of ideas to bring that special element to life. I don’t think it was ever about me, but rather a chance to get creative and dream.
Martha Stewart Weddings just celebrated their 15th anniversary. I have loved this magazine for so long, but I think my favourite issue is their anniversary one. With a look back at older stories with a fresh take, quotes from those in the industry and their favourite touches, I am still pouring over the pages.
One of the styled wedding collections I have to share with you today is one I played with when I was younger- a wedding themed around the magic of stars. I love this look- simple, soft metallics and the glittery stars (certainly gives a whole new meaning to using Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me To The Moon” as your wedding waltz). Beautiful! See more on their website.

The (now daily) Real Weddings Magazine puzzle piece just landed…
“Dear Ms Polka,
Just 3 more pieces to go! And here is one of them… Do you recognise the bride? Soon you’ll be able to hear all about her beautiful wedding – first hand!
Today’s designer is someone completely different to what I would normally showcase, but his design and concept is so interesting I wanted to share it with you!
Timothy Godbold is an Australian designer who has returned to our shores after spending years working on American luxury brands.
This is Timothy’s first capsule collection (reflecting the fluidity and freedom of the ocean) – all created with soft jersey. The clean, architectural styling and contrast of the soft, draping fabric may be the perfect look for a beach bride wanting something relaxed with an urban feel. I’d love to see a bride in the jumpsuit too!
