Faux Fur Stoles
Keep you and your wedding party warm with some cozy winter wedding attire like these faux fur stoles. These will definitely come in handy for outdoor photoshoots and when you’re running in and out of your venue.
Strutting through the snow in sky high heels ain’t easy. We suggest trading in your Louboutins for some snow boots – at least while you’re braving the outdoors.

Talk to your florist about winter availability and let them help you put together a dreamy bouquet.
