Kids at Weddings

August 24, 2011

So one of the most difficult decisions for me was that we decided not to have children at our wedding.

This was kind of a bummer for me, I love kids at weddings, it was not a decision taken lightly.

I mean seriously look at this flower girl… who wouldn’t want that!

I know many people have issues with weddings that set rules like this, I personally think people should do what is right for them at their weddings, I do believe that its their day!

When it came to our wedding, I found it more difficult and did actually want to think of others!

In the end it simply came down to costs, we were having our wedding at a city centre restaurant, we were starting at 5 and after a quick ceremony and dinner it was all about our party, not really a child-friendly day.

So I asked all of our friends and family to leave the kids at home, not because we didn’t want to see them we LOVE kids, more because we were having a party with drinks and loud music and wanted everyone to relax and have a good time… not worrying about their little ones or leaving because they were tired.

Ultimately a simultaneous selfless and selfish reason for not having them.

I am still gutted my God-kids won’t be there though, they would have made an amazing page boy and flower girl and melted everyone’s heart!

A Stylish Polish Home

August 22, 2011

I absolutely adore this home… SO calm and bright.

I die for these stairs…

And cute little details on door frames…

And I have always wanted a big black board in my house… definitely one day.

Mismatched chairs are my fave.

Compact but beautiful kitchen, it almost looks like a dressing table!

And a beautifully simple black and white bathroom…

The tub looks so cool.

A Polish chandelier, I want to make one of these! I just found a tutorial if you want to give it a try!

*sign* looks like a great Sunday home… I can imagine it being very chilled here!

Spotted at Decor8, of course!

Magenta Clutch

I am lusting after a large clutch to take travelling with me to dress up an outfit on the odd occasion we splash out…

This one is perfect!

Sadly the price tag means it is not a piece I could take away with me, I am not taking anything valuable!

Still maybe when I return… available from Red Ruby Lounge
