If I had to pick a favorite season, it would undoubtedly be winter with its festive celebrations, whimsical design and enchanting holiday spirit. I adore the holidays and planning a wintry-inspired wedding is quickly becoming my newest obsession, so I put together some ideas to hopefully inspire other brides as well.
From oh-so-gorgeous ceremony aisles to bouquets filled with pinecones, welcome to your very own winter wonderland!

9. My newest style obsession is undoubtedly ghost chairs. They can be paired with rustic tables for an eclectic look or make a statement inside a glamorous ballroom.
If you’re planning a winter wedding and want to incorporate ghost chairs into your design, drape faux furs over a few of the chairs to create a cozy look:
