I think it has been almost the coldest week of Winter yet here, which is not such a bad thing when you get to look at weddings like the one above (and stay inside drinking hot tea!).  Which does make me think, as painful as it is for those stuck in a tropical land, it could be worse!

Luckily we have had a  lot, and when I say a lot, I mean we have so many that this list keeps growing, of amazing posts from around the Polka blogs this week. From amazing vendor advice (first look or not?) to gorgeous weddings, DIY tutorials and even destination weddings. Here’s what you might have missed this week.
