Sadly I received news that a much loved Melbourne bridal designer is selling her business. After over two decades in the business the designer has decided it’s time to pass it on to someone new.
The good part is, they want it to go to someone who will love it like they do!
The business includes premises on an upmarket Melbourne shopping strip and the buyer can expect a 5.5 day work week- with procedures and details in place to protect the lifestyle of the owner.
There is great growth potential and the new owner will receive support as they take over the reigns.
Please email me at polkadotbride [at] gmail.com if you want further information.

The Chinese Garden Of Friendship in Sydney is such a stunning wedding venue. So lush and green with the peace and tranquility.
The gardens were built to celebrate by the local Sydney Chinese community to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary. A nod also to Sydney’s sister city of Guangzhou in Guangdong Province, China.
There are three venues to choose from for your wedding (ceremony or reception) with gorgeous names like the ‘Hall of Longevity’ (fits 120) or the ‘Peace Boat Pavilion (fits 40).
The garden is a public area, but can be hired privately for wedding receptions from 5.30pm until midnight. You can even have champagne served to add to the celebration.
The Chinese Garden of Friendship is located close by to the historic Rocks area in Darling Harbour makes it perfect for photos with the iconic bridge and of course, throughout the gardens.
For more information email email@example.com or phone the gardens on (02) 9240 8888
