Happy Monday Dotties! It’s the start of another week of jam packed wedding stories, inspiration and ideas!
First up, as is Monday morning tradition, I’m going to start with a shout out to the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory
Please take a moment and check out our awesome directory members. We have talented artists who create beautiful bouquets of Flowers, gorgeous Bridal Gowns, stunning Hair & Beauty looks and can even whip up epic Catering.
We want vendors on our site who embody what we believe in- doing work which you are passionate about, having a wedding which is true to what you want, that ignites your inspiration.
Introducing today’s vendor of the week! A virtual gift registry called Wed & Wish. Wed & Wish allows you to set up a custom website which rather than material goods, allows guests to purchase “wishes” for you. Add items, experiences, honeymoons adventures to your list and guests can log on and purcahse your first dinner on your honeymoon, or that lamp you always wanted. They can even create their own gifts. Each dollar is deposited securely into a PayPal account avoiding multiple department stores!
We asked Jaime from Wed & Wish five questions in five minutes –
What is your favourite after five drink?
It’s a special Mexican drink called “Michelada”. Its absolutely delicious and a great reward after a long day of work – J. To fix this drink you first need to rim a glass with salt, then add lots of ice, lime and a mixture of sauces like Tabasco and Cholula. At last comes the beer. It’s so delicious!
Your favourite weekend getaway?
Las Vegas! Can’t say too much because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
Koi Sushi in Los Angeles.
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Huevos Rancheros (Mexican food)
Your favourite wedding story?
My favourite wedding story is also the story of how I launched Wed&Wish. My aunt was getting married and because she was 49 at the time, didn’t want to register for the traditional registry gifts. Her family and friends pulled together to help her and her fiancé take their dream honeymoon to Bali. Seeing the difficulty she had with finding an international online honeymoon registry service inspired me to start Wed&Wish.
