Happy Monday Dotties! The kettle is boiled and we’re well and truly ready for another week of weddings!
We’re diving into The Tasmania Issue this month of June. We’re covering all things Tasmania – weddings, advice, food, travels – it may be the smallest State in Australia – but it is packed with holiday adventure, amazing food for foodies to relish and some of the most beautiful scenery in Australia. Why not jump off the mainland via ferry or plane and soak up all it has to offer – there’s no better time like the present! Now’s a great time to a look at our Polka Dot Directory filled with our professional vendors!! We have Celebrants, we have Entertainment, we have Bridesmaid Gowns and Wedding Planners – we even have Transport and Cinematographers!
Check out the Polka Dot Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!
Vanessa of The Wedding and Event Creators is a wedding planner, wedding coordinator and wedding stylist – all in one! Having all these skills brings a unique perspective to your wedding – where the planning, coordinating and styling join in unison to create one beautifully thought out wedding day. Vanessa also offers an extensive Hire Section where you can hire items from organised groups such as Ceremony Decor, Arches & Arbours or Seating – to make choosing so much easier. But most of all, I must confess I love Vanessa’s styling ideas – the icing on the cake on a day where the behind the scenes planning and organisation faeries have been hard at work!
We asked Vanessa at The Wedding and Event Creators five questions in five minutes:
What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
Work out your top 2 non-negotiables each. What are your must-have things for the wedding and make sure you don’t compromise on those. Maybe it’s your priority to have a venue that you can bring your own catering in or maybe it’s having a garden wedding, make the list and revert back to this when making decisions, the smaller details can fall away but as long as you have your most important big ticket things in order, that’s what matters.
Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
Predicting what will happen in a movie or TV show, and when I’m right, I get super excited about it too! (That’s probably not a massive talent to have!)
As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
I do love the adrenalin of the setting up stage, everyone is a buzz, you are in your organised set up zone and the anticipation of the wedding to come is super exciting for all involved.
What are you known for?
Personally, probably my sarcasm and massive lack of geography and world knowledge skills! But for my business we are known for our massive attention to detail, no detail is overlooked in the lead up or on the day and if it is, the couple would never know as we are masters at troubleshooting too!
If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
I’m loving anything by Missy Higgins at the moment!
