A common gift for an engagement is a wedding planner- I’m talking the hard covered fill in the blanks kind! No more do you have to suffer the lacy doily look with the great planners out now!

There’s the usual Martha Stewart planners, and ones from the famed US Bridal site but I found some ones you might like for their unique style!

So here is the (short for now!) list – go forth and plan!

Visit Ms Polka Dot's Directory

The Wedding Photojournalist Association is a great place to turn to if you like the ‘unexpected moments’ style of photography. They have a great directory which lists PJ photographers- including Aussies Tony Marin, Wildberry Photography and Florent Vidal

The WPJA holds competitions for photographers to enter their shots- its a great resource for brides, to check out new styles and great shots!

One of my favourite overseas photographers hails out of Colorado and placed second in the ‘Getting Ready’ and tenth and thirteenth in ‘Humour’.

Charlotte uses my favourite style of photography and captures it with a ‘wow’. I know she’s not Australian (if it counts, she’s been here!) but I always check out her work! Charlotte travels around the US with her husband taking gorgeous portraits and shooting weddings in a beautiful way.

You can check out Charlotte Geary’s work here

My personal favourites are the wedding of Penny and David – check out the ceremony location! and the wedding of Amanda and Brett– particularly when Amanda sneaks up behind Brett!

If you like her enough, perhaps you can convince her to come out to Australia!

As you may have guessed, I love Polka dots! Polka Dots can be incorporated into so many elements of a wedding.

I love this Polka Dot Wedding dress by New York designer Michelle Roth as seen on Pronovias via Brides
