It’s been such a long time since we did our last desperately seeking post that I thought it would be the perfect third new column to introduce to Polka Dot Weddings. Our last Brides Seeking (as it was formerly known!) had so much response that I wanted to bring it back and here we are! If you can help any of the queries in the post just leave a comment, or if you have a ‘desperately seeking’ of your own, leave a comment or contact us and we’ll pop it into our Desperately Seeking March column!

Bride #1 is wanting to marry her beloved in Greece and is seeking tips on Greek destination weddings and recommendations for Greece wedding planners!

Bride #2 is in search of white polka dot fabric- like this. She would love to know where to find it in Melbourne, or the name of it!

Bride #3 is looking for a company in Australia who hires out high end china, specifically the Jasper Conran for Wedgwood Chinoiserie Green range for her wedding.

Bride #4 is  looking for a picturesque venue in Queensland or northern NSW, (scenic rim, Gold Coast hinterland, Sunshine Coast hinterland) a private property, farm or location that has a reasonably large old-style barn. Wooden or stone. Really just doesn’t want a marquee for an outdoor reception!

So Dotties, do you have an answer for one of our brides?

    Bride #4 They aren’t barns sorry, but here are some pictureque options, in particular Mavis’ Kitchen which I found after we had booked our location (doh!)

    Another way to search for private properties is through http://www.stayz.com.au

    Good luck with your search.

    Bride #2 Have you looked at Tessuti? They have a store in Melbourne:
    http://www.tessuti.com.au/locations/melbourne
    and a Online shop with a great bridal section, so you can see before you go in.
    I think this may be what you are after,
    http://www.tessuti-shop.com/products/clip-cord-voile-white
    and if not it might be a good starting place.
    Best of luck.

    Oh Bride #4 I don’t know where my original message went:

    These arenn’t barns but very picturesque all the same, especially Mavis’ Kitchen…
    http://www.bigvolcano.com.au/services/venues.htm

    Also maybe look on http://www.stayz.com.au for private properties?

    Best of luck with your search, Stacey.

    Bride number 2 (I have tried to send this message twice, it was actually my first reply to you) It doesn’t have a barn but you could look at Mavis’ Kitchen and also consider looking at Stayz for private properties.
    Best of luck with your search, Stacey

    Hi Bride #4. My name is Anna at Sweetest Day and I was recently the ‘Day Of’ Coordinator at Coronation Hall in Somerset Dam, Esk. The location is absolutely stunning and provides a gorgeous county style hall in elegant surrounds which is the perfect back drop for a vintage wedding. My website is http://www.sweetestday.com.au if you want more information about Coronation Hall or any other possible venues in South East Qld.
