How gorgeous are these new shots of the new ban.do collection? So full of celebration. I can easily imagine these on a stylish bride- fuchsia corsage? Check! Apricot flowers in her hair? Double check!
I am enchanted by the new collection of bridal gowns from Amanda Garrett. They have the stunningly beautiful uncomplicated lines to them but the most beautiful use of lace (creating gowns with names like “The Snowflake Gown” with intricate beading). Again the simplicity is the perfect choice for a bride who wants an elegant, understated look. The small details just add an extra sense of glamour.
As I said of her last collection- Amanda designs with personality, but with elegance and grace.

So officially after Australia day is when the year kicks into gear and what a year have planned~
It’s Monday morning which means a profile on one of the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory! I love the range of vendors in our directory- from home businesses to large studios. Each and every single one has a wealth of experience, talent and style. Browse the pages today and see what takes your fancy!
This week’s Vendor Of The Week is a gorgeous Queensland event planner & stylist Style Weddings & Events. I’m constantly inspired by the wedding planners of Australia and Kym is no exception.
