The Best Of Groom – 2011

Oh what a year it has been! As we’re all so fond of saying “I can’t believe how quickly this year’s gone!”. Here’s a recap of the most memorable posts from Polka Dot Groom… just in case you missed some beauties!

1. Commemorative Beverage

In this post, our now married groom Brent Dakis shares the story of how he brewed his own beer for his wedding. An extremely entertaining and at the same time, quite interesting post about home brewing!


2. How To Give a Good Speech

OK so Ms Floral can’t tell you what to say, neither is this a crash course in stand up comedy. It is, however, a very handy little post essentially about public speaking, on a very emotional, sensitive and special occasion. Essential reading.

3. Choosing The Ring

This is a tough one for every groom to be. Choosing the ring. Who better to write this one than Mr Polka himself with some very valuable advice from a man’s point of view.

4. It’s All In The Detail

Another of our now married grooms, Julian, shares his special engagement on Polka Dot Groom with an articulate, touching and inspiring post. One of my favourites from this year!

5. Julian and Amy’s Rock and Roll Engagement Shoot

I can’t do a “best of Groom” without including our groom Julian’s and his bride Amy’s super cool engagement shoot. Photographer Dan O’Day does an astounding job at capturing the personality of this couple and it’s just fun looking at the images really! Another one of my favourites.

Polka Dot Groom is growing and we just love hearing the voice of the Grooms out there. Inspiration is best when shared (says I) so thanks to all our grooms and contributors for making this blog so much fun. Here’s to even more fun in 2012!
