Vendor Spotlight On: The Pink Polka Dot

Vendor Spotlight is on: The Pink Polka Dot; more than an event design firm, the flagship wedding boutique in Cape Cod features unique cards, customized stationery, and gifts.

1. How did your business come to be?

In 2009 The Pink Polka Dot launched as a wedding and event planning company, but quickly evolved into more. After realizing not all clients want to go online to purchase their wedding and event accessories, Jen opened a store in Falmouth to fill the void.

In May of 2011, the store expanded into a much larger space.  The current space includes a wedding and event boutique area, as well as a large retail area with unique cards, stationery, gift wrap, and gifts. Our Wedding and Event Boutique also features personalized stationery and custom invitations. In addition to albums from Crane, William Arthur, Carlson Craft, Lilly Pulitzer, and Envelopments, we also offer custom designs and in house printing. Consider us your one stop shop for all of life’s important events. Whether you are planning a wedding or birthday party, or trying to find that perfect gift for someone, we can certainly help.

The Pink Polka Dot has been named the Best Wedding Planner on Cape Cod by The Knot for four years (2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015) and was inducted into the Hall of Fame! Additionally, you can find featured weddings and stationery in many local magazines, including Well Wed, Bliss Celebrations, and Southern New England Weddings.

Jen’s philosophy is that the small details are what will truly set you and your event apart from the rest. Everything we do at The Pink Polka Dot reflects this belief, including our unique products, which are designed to add that extra touch!

2. What are the services you offer?

We offer Boutique Partial and Full Wedding Planning.  We take on only a limited number of weddings each year, so dates tend to book at least a year in advance.  We also create custom stationery and invitations! We suggest beginning the invitation design process at least 6 months prior to your wedding.  This allows ample time for proofs, revisions, and printing.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

We are located on Cape Cod (in Falmouth, MA).  We provide planning services for Cape Cod weddings, but have traveled to Boston and Newport.

4. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

Something will go wrong on your wedding day! It’s inevitable when you have so many people and moving parts.  Hiring the best team of vendors and a great planner will ensure you don’t even know what issues may arise.  Our job is to troubleshoot and fix anything before it becomes a problem and so you or guests don’t even know about it!

Ice Cream Hues – Pistachio & Peach

Ice cream hues created a bright and fun vibe for this late summer wedding at The Dunes Club in Narragansett, RI.

Not only does the Dunes Club boast gorgeous beach views, but their colors of teal and white contrasted flawlessly with Ellie’s favorite color: pastel green. Making sure the day went off without a hitch she sourced the talent of Em Devaud of Em Devuad Events. Ellie styled her bridesmaids in beautiful pistachio chiffon gowns as she knew the color would look beautiful against the ocean as well as in the ballroom. Natural light flooded the ballroom casting a warm summer glow on the pink and peach floral arrangements that lined the tables. Deep teal chairs and dinner plates provided a fun twist on the norm and brought out the greens in each floral arrangement. Happy memories were made and Erin McGinn captured every moment for the couple to cherish forever.
