Happy October! October brings with it all the fun things of Spring – Spring Racing, Spring blooms, Spring weddings! Which makes a happy Ms Polka because what more could a girl ask for on a Monday?
We start our week, every week with a spotlight on the pages of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory! We fill our directory pages with every kind of vendor you can imagine – from venues (that include everything from country retreats to theme parks!) , photographers (candid and informal or traditional? Take your pick!), stationery (letterpress? wood printed? metallic?) and even wedding planners to keep everything together!
We work hard to fill our directory with vendors we love and we hope you love too, so click on through and check out Ms Polka Dot’s Directory to find vendors for your wedding day!

We asked Lianne of Dream Reflection five questions in five minutes –
What is your favourite after five drink?
To be honest, a good cup of tea and some biscuits!
Your favourite weekend getaway?
I really enjoy Port Macquarie…..it’s so pretty, relaxing and one of my fave restaurant/bar is there….amazing wine list and fantastic meals! Flying up is the only way to go if you have only a few days as it is quite a drive!
Recently I attended a good friend’s wedding at a gorgeous restaurant in Surry Hills called Porteno http://www.porteno.com.au The venue itself is so beautiful, the wait staff are so elegantly dressed it is almost as though you have stepped back in time, and the food was the best flavour and presentation that I have ever experienced. Love, love, love!!!! It was truly a magical experience!
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Not much to be honest, as I am usually up and out of the door on my way to a wedding job before the birds even rise….luckily my brides look after me with a cuppa and sometimes some snacks to keep me going!
Your favourite wedding story?
An old friend of mine, many years ago attended a dress up party at an amazing large home…..she said it was fully catered and the grounds were just gorgeous! Of course everyone was dressed up in their fancy dress, so already it had a great party atmosphere. A quarter way through, the couple hosting the party announced that they had put on this party so that the guests could all witness their marriage! A complete surprise for everyone as they hadn’t even announced their engagement!
They wanted a fun, no fuss and memorable wedding with no interruptions or opinions….they certainly got what they wanted! Super cute and candid idea…I will never forget it, it makes me smile!:)
