Weighing whether to invite kids or not to your wedding can be a tad tricky. You loooove the cute little ones but having them over means having to compromise some crystal ware on your oh-so-lovely-to-the-hilts FORMAL winter theme wedding (if someone decides to get a little rowdy!).

I also found her choice of bouquet very stunning – very simple and […]
I’m taking the time off from featuring this year’s wedding theme trends (which are more on the “formal” side), and instead, I’ll feature a theme that is very close to my heart *wink wink* – The Rustic Vintage or Rustic Chic.
