Best of Weddings 2013 – Amy & Tom’s Rustic Country Wedding Image by Madelyn Holmes Photographics assisted by Cory Pedder Photography

It’s that time of year! Yes – we have been rounding up the best posts of the year from each of our specialty blogs, which revealed what you, our lovely readers, were particularly interested in and loved. Some surprises, some expected, but all gorgeous posts that showed just how wonderfully varied our Polka Dotties are! I’ve loved the walk down memory lane, and have also been interested to see the trends arising from your favourite picks.

We’ll be taking a well earned break from next week, but the inspiration wont stop over the Christmas period! We’ve asked a huge array of photographers to provide some images of Magic Moments from weddings they have shot this year, and can’t wait to share these with you.

So for this, my final Friday Roundup of 2013 I say – the Merriest of Christmases to you all, from all of the patterned team. Enjoy!
