Keeping Guests Warm During Your Winter Wedding


Today on The Bride Link, we want to give you just a few tips on how to keep your wedding guests cozy should you be having a fall or winter wedding! 

First things first, let's talk about warm cozy beverages. You could do a crockpot full of hot cocoa or warm cider and offer this to your guests during pre-ceremony or throughout the entire night.
