Its November and time for another Desperately Seeking! Where the Polka Dot community helps out with strange queries, hard to find requests and venue searching! Strap on your Googling skills and let’s help them out!

Bride #1 is trying to find a catholic priest in Sydney that will perform a marriage ceremony at their (non church) venue.

Bride #2 is seeking an outdoor garden wedding venue in Perth that will serve sit down dinner for 50-60 people. She loves the thought of sitting under the stars rather than a marquee.

Bride #3 is seeking beautiful yellow shoes to wear with her wedding dress

Bride #3 is also seeking a ‘message in a bottle’ for guests to write their wishes and for us to open on our 10th anniversary (instead of a guest book)

Bride #4 has fallen in love with a 2010 Melissa Sweet gown (pictured above! Also known as “Maldives” reverie by Melissa Sweet ) She would love to find it second hand, an Australian stockist of the gown, or a dressmaker in Melbourne who can create the gown for her.

Bride #5 is looking for a stunning B & B out in the Adelaide Hills or Barossa where they have the ceremony in the gardens, photos (so lots of different areas), the reception and where 12 people can stay. Would love the rustic homestead feel but with 5 star services.

There will only be 12 guests, so the venue doesn’t need to be massive or needs to allow smaller events.

Bride #6 is looking for a Sydney dressmaker  to make a  top for her bridal skirt. She needs someone who can work from a picture rather than just a pattern.

Can you help our couples with their searches? Do you know of that elusive venue or dressmaker? Leave a comment below!
