Writing this week’s Friday Roundup from one of the gazillion hotel rooms in Disneyworld, Orlando, I seem a world away from what feels like the kick-off of wedding season in Australia. Invitations for launches, expos and showcases are being sent out, with brides-to-be shrugging off the cold of the Winter months and getting into the swing of searching and planning! Fun times ahead!

We’ve had a big week on the blog, and can’t wait to bring you the best from our specialty blogs (just in case you’ve missed out!). Enjoy!
