What a week it has been dear Dotties, we are this close to launching a project I have been working on for the past six months (hooray!) and I’ve been sitting here getting more and more wistful as I follow Ms Gingham’s travels throughout Europe (this week she is in Paris!) She’s doing a fantastic rundown of honeymoon appropriate destinations and locations over on Polka Dot Honeymoons so make sure you check in to see what she’s been up to!

We’ve had a huge amount of posts this week on the blogs (I honestly think the post above by Ellen made me laugh the hardest though!) Here’s a roundup!

Around the wedding world this week….

Letter Bird Lane has launched a brand new website! I love how the new website showcases designer Eliza’s quirky and fun stationery designs! Check it out here.

Perfect Table Plan (a fantastic program for figuring out your table plan has just released their latest version. I reviewed the program back in 2008 and boy has it come a long way! It allows you to input all of your guests, assign them seats, track meal choices and RSVPS, drag and drop guests to different tables, assign criteria (ie next to, near to or not next to!) and even print the entire list and create seating charts and floor plans!

The lovely founder Andy has offered Polka Dot Bride readers a special 25% discount off the full price of the program which you can redeem by visiting this link. The promotion ends 22nd August 2012 US time so be quick to download it!

Sydney designer Lisa Gowing has  moved back to her flagship showroom on the corner of New South Head Road and Ocean Avenue, Edgecliff. After 5 years operating out of her design studio nearby, Lisa is back  in business at 218 New South Head Road. The gorgeous showroom will even be the launch pad for Lisa’s brand new collection available at the August Open Days on August 24th and 25th.
