Happy Monday Dotties! It’s that time of year when the Autumn leaves are out and we’re dying to crunch some leaves!
We love country weddings, weddings by the sea and city weddings. Wherever you choose to have your day, we have so many vendors who will be able to accommodate your wishes – and our vendors love to travel. Take a look in the Polka Dot Directory – we’re sure you’ll love who you find. We have Flowers, we have Catering, we have Entertainment and Menswear – we even have Stationery & Paper Goods and Wedding Planners! It will be difficult to choose who you love the most!
Check out the Polka Dot Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!

The Yarra Valley is a stunning area outside Melbourne and with its gardens and rolling green hills Yarra Valley Lodge is right up there with the best this region has to offer. With access to a golf course, spa and exquisite scenery, your guests will be able to enjoy pre-ceremony drinks from the bar and the abundance of fresh regional produce in Bella Restaurant at the reception. And with a luxury boutique hotel and lodge on site, you could make a weekend of your wedding – and give your guests a mini holiday.
We asked Silika of Yarra Valley Lodge questions in five minutes:
What is your reward after a big working day?
Getting cosy in bed early with a great book and a cup of hot chamomile tea (that’s Mon-Wed, Thursday onwards is sofa + movie + good Yarra Valley wine :))
Favourite weekend getaway?
Yarra Valley is the PERFECT weekend getaway locale. There is nothing quite like spending 48 hours perusing around the region doing cellar door wine tasting and tours (including Four Pillars Gin which does a cracking Gin Masterclass sesh), getting our cultural on at the Tarrawarra Museum and of course, dining at Bella Restaurant, the food here is locally sourced (grown and handpicked in our restaurant garden) and finish off the weekend with a hit of golf at the Heritage Golf Course next door to the Yarra Valley Lodge.
