Here at Polka Dot Wedding, we’re getting pretty good at being real. So you’ll forgive us this moment of some REAL emotions regarding the last 18 or so months (and ongoing!) and what this time has meant for wedding vendors the world over. They’ve all had to tough it out big time, with so much heartbreak and so much stress. Industry professionals who have had been hit hard have been our incredible wedding and event venues, and the incredible teams behind the scenes. You guys make wedding days possible, and to have that ability stripped away so much lately must be unspeakable hard. So we wanted to send a whole lot of love your way! June is our The Venue Issue! and could we BE more excited?!?! (“Friends Reunion”, anyone?!)

Many couples have that PERFECT venue in mind for their big day (possibly even before they find the perfect person!) and can visualise themselves saying “I Do” right there, in that perfect setting. Whether it be a relaxing bayside or beachside spot, a whimsical country garden estate, a chic yet rustic winery, or an old-world library or church, we really are spoilt for choice in Australia and New Zealand for some seriously stunning spots to start the rest of your life together, and to properly celebrate your day.

This month we can’t wait to showcase some breathlessly beautiful venues, real weddings set in stunning locations, tips on how to utilise your wedding venue to create the perfect day and we hear from venue teams with insights into planning the most memorable (and smooth running!) wedding day! Let’s open the door and fall in love all over again with our wonderful wedding venues in The Venue Issue!
