Friday Roundup

by | Blog News, Bride


It’s grand final weekend! So while Australia stops and watches the AFL in a sea of white black and red I thought I’d ask what your plans are for the weekend?

To kick off the last day of the working week, here are some fun things and specials we have for Polka Dot Bride readers!

The lovely organisers at the Queensland Brides & Honeymoon Expo are giving Polka Dot Bride Readers FREE entry to the expo. Held on the 8-10th of October, attendees can head to this link to download their free expo pass which gives you access to the expo Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

We’re also looking for a bride to attend as a Polka Dot Reporter the Friday Night VIP Event, you’ll get to attend the event and watch the fashion parade featuring some of Queensland’s best and most talented designers (including a student category!) For anyone with an eye on fashion, this might be your perfect Friday night! (Email us here if you’d like to apply!)

The Wedding List Co are holding Le Creuset evenings in Brisbane and Perth for engaged couples! Held on Thursday, 7th of October. The night includes plenty of fine wine and food along with a free gift and Le Creuset master class! Check out their website for more information. You can find more events on our calendar.

Our specialty blogs are slowly starting to populate with some exciting content and we have so many exciting features to come! Meanwhile do check out Ms Floral’s reports of some of the latest Sydney wedding events– including the Ultimate Wedding Planning Party and Trippas White Open Day! Real bride Maria also posted her report of the recent wedding workshop over on Polka Dot Weddings!

The winner of our Letter Bird Lane competition is Jasmine! “We have been together for 10 years already, so our inspiration is celebrating our history and our future all at once,
with the people that have shaped us and touched our lives so far…can’t wait!” Congratulations Jasmine, you’ve won a stationery package worth $420!

Don’t forget to enter our Poppiseed Designs competition– we have some more fantastic competitions coming up for you in the next few weeks too!

The Princess Cherry Pie shop is now open for business! So you can get those sweet skincare goodies you laid eyes upon a few weeks ago! (I started using mine today and they smell gorgeous!)


Unrelated to weddings but very important to note, The “Because I Am A Girl” campaign launched this week. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the unique issues facing girls all over the world including fighting gender inequality, promoting girls’ rights and lifting millions of girls out of poverty.  Visit the website for more information here and find the ways to show your support here.

Finally I want to leave you with this video I’ve had in my favourites for a few weeks. I watched it the night Mr Polka took my computer to the genius bar and received an unexpected hug at the end of it (I didn’t know he was even listening!). The beauty in this video is something needing to be shared.

    My husband showed me that video a few weeks ago. I bawled through the entire thing. Just seeing that image makes me tear up again!

    Hi. Thanks for the free offer to the expo. Unfortunately the link does not take me to a free pass? Only a page to buy the ticket. Can you please let me know how to access the free pass. Thanks
