Wedding News Roundup

by | Blog News, Bride


Before I officially shut this computer down for the year (or try to anyway!), I have a few great things I wanted to mention!

We have posts lined up right through the break, so if you’re feeling like some reading or an escape from the craziness of the festive season, be sure to check in! I’ll be back “officially” on January 4th. So many exciting things are happening in 2010 I can’t wait to get started!

Ms. Polka_s favorite letterpress wedding invitations at Bella Figura

Bella Figura has unveiled their 2010 collection and my brand new Trendsetter favourites are up!

It was so difficult to choose I have to do a post on the designs that just missed out! I love the collection this year and you can also check out the favourites of other bloggers such as Anne from Perfect Bound, Kathryn from Snippet & Ink and Ami from Elizabeth Anne Designs. Sample packs of each trendsetter’s favourites are available in a keepsake box with ink and paper samples with the proceeds from the sale of each pack going to a chosen organisation supporting sustainability and the environment.

Check out my favourites here.

Pink Frosting Store - Polka Dot Bride_s Garden Bridal Shower Theme | Pink Frosting - Wedding Bomboniere Favors - Party Invitations - Baby Shower Decorations - Australia_s No. 1 Wedding Online Shop

Speaking of favourites, Kathryn of online celebration store Pink Frosting recently invited me along with Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella to pick our favourite goodies from her store  in the “Expert Picks Boutique”.

My first selection is everything you need for a bridal shower in the garden! I was inspired by the Liberty print of the cupcake cups and thought of lace, butterflies, cupcakes and pretty things under the dappled shade of a tree! The little silver birds add a quirky touch. You can see my selection here.

Real Weddings

I’m joining the fun bloggers of Antibride! The lovely Carolyn recently visited Australia and fell in love with the country. She loves our laid back lifestyle and has asked me to guest post on the Antibride blog once a month!
