Polka Dot Wisdom – One Fine Day Sydney Review:

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Hi everyone,

I know I’ve been rather slack with my blog posting lately! (That’s because I’m super busy making beautiful dresses..) But I have received tonnes of publicity recently, so I’ll try to share some of the features with you starting with this article by the lovely Ms Herringbone of Polka Dot Wisdom (Polka Dot Bride).

Lovely post by Ms Herringbone don’t you think? It was such an enjoyable fair to be a part of.. There were so many gorgeous ideas to make your wedding totally unique.

I downsized the post so you can download it faster in your browser, but you can read the entire post here: http://www.polkadotbride.com/2013/02/one-fine-day-sydney-2/

It’s a Wrap! One Fine Day Sydney – Wedding Fair Photos & Video:

Monday, March 11th, 2013

For those of you who didn’t make it to the One Fine Day Sydney wedding fair in February, you missed a wonderful day full of wedding inspiration! Loads of extremely creative vendors including photographers, wedding venues, caterers, DJs, wedding planners and us of course!

Over the two days, I made new friends such as makeup artist Liv Lundelius. I got to say hi to some of my lovely existing clients and I met a few wedding vendors I follow on social media including celebrant Sarah Cummings!

I was also approached by several bridal mag stylists and have some up and coming features (Hush Hush).. And MOST importantly I met loads of newly engaged brides who are just starting their wedding planning! It really was a great weekend!

I was quite proud of our wedding gown exhibit in the ‘Ladies Dressing Room’ at One Fine Day Sydney. I derived the whole design concept for our booth from my website so that we’d be instantly recognisable!

One of the decorations we used was ‘foamy’ roses (I just love the texture of them).. They have bendy stems so you can loop them around furniture and of course they won’t die or wilt so you can set them up days before your wedding and do really creative things with them.

We also tied silk dupion bows around the furniture and had pieces of lace and rolls of fabric draped artfully. Everything was DIY and easy to set up and (take down) in a short space of time.

A major attraction to the wedding fair was the ‘Gallery Space’. We featured several gowns on models in this space who rotated to different plinths in a kind of live gallery. We received loads of comments about our gowns for their uniqueness and wow factor! One of the models told me on Instagram that my pink wedding dress was her favourite gown to wear in the whole show..

If you’d like to see a little more of the weekend that was.. (and plan to go to the next One Fine Day Sydney event which I believe will be early next year) you can have a look at the official video from One Fine Day Sydney made by Paper Cranes www.papercranes.com.au below. A couple of our gowns are featured in the video too!
