Wedding Hair Inspiration – Short Hair Styles

by | Bride, Hair and Beauty


In our ongoing wedding hair style inspiration posts (see our elegant down hairstyles here) today I thought I’d share a bit of inspiration for our short haired readers! From cropped short pixie styles, to modern bobs – here’s a snapshot of inspiration from Polka Dot Brides who have styled their short hair for their wedding days. Short can can be really versatile – curly or straight, finger waves or soft elegant curls, birdcage veils or big blooming flowers. What are your tips for short haired brides?

Jason Grech White Hollywood Glam Chic Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


I’m so excited to see a new collection from Melbourne designers Jason Grech White. They’ve just released their “Hollywood Glam Chic Collection”. With inspiration drawn from Melbourne’s Autumn season, the collection features a nod to the season Melbournians love so much- with soft silk leaves, leaf embroidery detailing and Swarovski crystal accents.

Designers Jason Grech and Harry Georgiou create the gorgeous made to wear gowns (as seen in this collection) but are also able to sit down with you and provide a true couture experience with the gown made and designed just for you to your likes, dislikes and specifications. The team also create stunning cocktail frocks which may just be the right choice for your bridesmaids.

Hip hip hooray it’s Monday! I’m actually pretty relieved this week, it was a quiet weekend packed with work (we’re putting the finishing touches on Project Innovate tomorrow night!) so lo and behold we are more than ready for the week to begin! If you’re in Sydney and would like to come to our first ever Project Innovate event tomorrow night, simply click this link to buy your ticket!

Let’s start our week as we always do with a dive into the pages of Ms Polka Dot’s Wedding Directory! Whether it be a beautiful bouquet, a creative invitation, a quirky photographer, a stunning wedding gown, a little organisational help, a few decorative touches, gifts for your guests or even talented performers to get your guests on the dance floor- Ms Polka Dot’s Directory has the talent with it’s pages for you to find the vendor that is the right fit for you!

Photography brings a wedding from a memory to our screens and with that, I love “meeting” new photographers! This week’s Vendor of the Week is Kelly Adams Photography. Kelly is a rather new addition to our Directory but I’ve loved exploring her work and website to get to know her! Kelly has a wicked sense of humor and is completely down to earth  – a wonderful combination for a wedding photographer! I love Kelly’s warm, heartfelt captures and the way she shoots the candids, the classics and everything in between!

To learn a little more about Kelly Adams Photography we asked Kelly five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after five drink?

My fav after five drink is… in winter – a rich sweet hot chocolate (Milo will do the trick too) & in summer – a Pimm’s fruity mix… emmm.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

My favorite weekend getaway in the warmer months would be a Sunshine Coast (Queensland) & hinterland trip with the family… lazing on the beach & meandering through the local markets.

Favourite restaurant?

Wow restaurants… what are these places that you speak of? I have small children… we’ve swapped eating out for picnics in the park & takeaway.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

My very wonderful husband of nine years usually makes me & our two beautiful boys scrambled eggs or pancakes 🙂 🙂

Your favourite wedding story?

That one is too hard! Can I say they are all my favourites? Really & truly though, I’d have to say my absolute all time favourite wedding story would be the one about the day I married my best friend & the love of my life.
