I can’t quite believe this is the first Friday Roundup of 2016! We are quickly closing in on Polka Dot Bride’s ninth birthday and with our plans in the works I have no doubt this is going to be our biggest year yet. We’ve been spending the week catching up on everything we missed while we were away as well as putting a few big plans into action. 2016, we are ready for you!

We have a full to the brim roundup for you today. Not only have we had some amazing posts across the blog, but we have oh so many events and specials for you to see! So let’s dive in!
