I have been on a short dress kick lately – it’s true, but with the warmer months approaching (or if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, tights are a fantastic option) I can’t help but wish to give my skin some sunshine!
Which is why it’s rather wonderful that the ever gorgeous Meg, famous for her button bouquets has finally unveiled her long awaited dress line – it’s affordable and it’s completely and utterly Princess Lasertron.
The debut collection launches with 11 designs (I really have my eyes on that gorgeous polka dot shift!) Each gown is made from 100% silk or organic cotton and is fully lined. Princess Lasertron ships worldwide and custom makes the gowns to any size!
Good morning dear readers! I am SO excited about the goodness we have coming up for you this week! A wedding from the other side of the world and one from rural Australia- could it get any better?
Firstly though, as is Monday morning tradition, it’s time to showcase a vendor from Ms Polka Dot’s Directory! We love our directory members and their support means we can bring you content every single day, not only that, but they’re pretty darn good at what they do! So be sure to tell them you found them on Polka Dot Bride to see that extra twinkle in their eye!
This week’s vendor of the week is stationer Alannah Rose Stationery. With a stunning sense of style, Alannah Rose Stationery designs and prints all their stationery in Australia (though ship worldwide) and have such a range of designs, you’re sure to find something to suit you- from vintage to modern to the quirky!
Alannah Rose has gone from strength to strength over the past five years and just recently launched a brand new website showcasing not only their stunning stationery range but the added functionality of The Rose Lounge and more fun children’s party invitations and baby stationery!
Frangelico Mule – frangelico, ginger beer and fresh lime! yum!
Your favourite weekend getaway?
We love getting away to the beach, there’s so many beautiful ones only a short drive from Melbourne, but my favourite destination at the moment is Queensland. I think the saying really is true – Beautiful one day, perfect the next! Or maybe it’s because I’ve just landed back into Melbourne’s cold weather!
Rockpool Bar and Grill in Melbourne, A Tavola in Sydney. I love food, would eat out every night if I could, but alas my husband and kids won’t oblige.
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Cereal with fresh fruit. You’re pretty much guaranteed to find me eating this every morning!
Your favourite wedding story?
All weddings have a story and each is special in it’s own way. I’ve been lucky to have been a guest at around 38 weddings in the last 20 years, each unique and heartfelt. I recently watched a good friend get married by Elvis in Vegas live via the internet, so that’s definitely one I hadn’t seen before, it’s was hilarious and fabulous all in it’s 10 minute glory. I can’t wait to celebrate with them when they return for their reception.
I love this photo of Michael and his groomsmen while they wait in the church for Stella to arrive (see more here). Photographer Milena of I Love Wednesdays who took the shot, told me “I think it is possibly my favourite photo from that wedding, well… one of many favourites. Stella & Michael are both very spiritual and the boys all came together to pray before Stella got to the church. It was a really touching moment.”
I thought ending off Saturday with a glowy, sunshine filled Sydney engagement shoot was just the ticket! Shot by Welsch Photography, this is the engagement session of Angela and Paul. Angela and Paul had their photos taken in Callan Park, Rozelle, Sydney.
