21 Reasons Why Winter Weddings Are The Most Magical Of All

alisoncoldridge:

Snow (if you’re lucky), candles everywhere and mulled wine and mistletoe on tap… winter weddings sound divine. Sure, you may get a little chilly and you won’t have a bronzed complexion to offset your white frock, but you can wrap up in a chunky knit or fur jacket and get a spray tan if you’re really fixed on looking sun-kissed.

Plus, you can have a hot chocolate bar, incorporate Christmas tracks into your playlist and turn your big day into the winter wonderland of your dreams.
