Our approach to marketing isn’t “set and forget” which means a Polka Dot Membership is best suited to support and champion those who actively strive to market their business through content. However, when you’re short on time, a beautiful Polka Dot Directory profile page is always online to show off your work. Even if your own website isn’t set up yet or is a little out of date, our directory pages are designed to give prospective couples the best insight into your business. Your directory profile page features:
- A choice of listing in either our Wedding Member Directory or Honeymoon Member Directory
- Your choice of location and category
- Up to 10 stunning gallery images (or films, you choose!)
- A crafted biography that introduces you to prospective couples
- A quick “get to know you” Q&A, to show off your personality
- Links to your website and social media profiles
- A contact form, allowing couples to directly contact you from your profile page
- Story snippets – at a glance information about your business
- Special offers – give Polka Dot readers something special!
- A virtual tour (for venues only) allowing couples to experience your space in virtual reality
- A real-time Polka Dot portfolio. Every time you’re featured on Polka Dot Wedding, we’ll add a link to your directory profile and keep it looking fresh.

Real wedding & editorial features
Our team will scour your blog, website and social media to find the very best of your weddings and work to feature on Polka Dot Wedding. We’ll source beautiful images, our writers will craft the story with care and then we’ll share it across our networks and beyond so that prospective couples can see you in action. As a member, your real weddings and shoots are preferenced and fast-tracked ahead of non-members. Plus you’ll be able to share these posts as fresh content across all of your own platforms.
Featured in an article? As a member, you’ll automatically receive prominent, highlighted vendor credits across our site. You’ll shine brightly on that page with a featured credit, allowing prospective customers to understand that you’re recommended by Polka Dot Wedding. A contact button on your highlighted vendor credit will allow couples to contact you directly after seeing your work!
Exclusive editorial opportunities
Membership unlocks a range of editorial opportunities typically not available to non-members. In addition to guest posts, we can also share your news and sales, and pre-promote your upcoming events (on our events calendar) for you. We regularly select Members for various business spotlights and profiles on our website and social media (including The Feel Good Wedding Podcast). You’ll hear about what we’re working on ahead of time so you’ll have the advantage when pitching news and stories to us! And you’ll also have direct access to our editorial team who can advise you on how to best enhance our partnership through pitching other types of editorial content.
