Snapshot Sunday – Scottish Fling

by | Bride, Photography, Snapshot Sundays


I adore this photo of Alicia and Alex (see more here) at their wedding last month captured by Justine Rugers of Xsight Photography. But what I really want to know is if Alex is wearing his kilt the traditional way!

NELLE Handbags Holiday 2009

by | Accessories, Bride


The lovely Laura of Nelle Handbags sent me a sneak peek of her upcoming holiday line to be released in June of this year.

Using fresh colours, Nelle has expanded from her gorgeous clutches and the new Nelle range includes jewelry, belts and hair accessories.

This sweet flower belts would add a lovely feature to a bridesmaid (or bridal!) gown.

While the clutches retain the lovely Nelle style without looking too bridal.

Clever Cake Stands

by | Bride, Catering, Wedding Inspiration


I scouted out Etsy for some stylish and sweet cake stands to use on your wedding day.

I love these custom cake stands by Etsy seller Vessels & Wares. They come with your names and wedding day on them and in your choice of aqua, cobalt blue, sage green and white.

For the cake, something feminine with old fashioned charm

Cake by Planet Cake

This cake stand by WhitneySmith has the sweetest cherry blossoms on it. I like the imperfections that Whitney talks about, with it – I think it makes it just a little more special!

For the cake, how about something simple with lots of beautiful flowers on top?

I love the colour of this cake stand (by jjceramics) the bright bold colour makes such a great statement.

For the current colour trend of green and white, perhaps top this stand with a simple white cake with black ribbon.

Jodi’s Garden Sunshine Wedding

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


Ever so patient Polka Dot Bride reader Jodi is planning a a very relaxed wedding on Queensland’s north coast. A horticulturist, Jodi loves daisies and all things natural but isn’t into anything too girly! A subtle colour scheme of latte, yellow and cream dominates but as Jodi isn’t into anything too “matchy matchy”, the addition of greenery and the blue of the ocean.

Her fiance is planning to wear sneakers, a vest and a hat. The couple is all about comfort! Silk pillow lollies and pots of herbs are the favor of the day and a photo studio set up in similar style to Lena Corwin. Rose & Ruby makes an appearance again with Jodi’s favourite gown Lust & Lace.
