With winter well underway, most couples will be heading indoors for their wedding ceremonies and receptions, but that doesn't mean you can't host a bash with tons of natural, outdoor influence. Sure, you won't physically be tying the knot or celebrating in the open air, but there are countless ways to bring the outdoors in to your space.
Plus, bringing the outdoors in to your wedding isn't just for nature-loving couples — in fact, it's downright trendy! (Think Kate Middleton's royal wedding complete with a tree-lined aisle.) Here are six ways to try the trend on your big day.
Tall trees wrapped in twinkling lights are one of our favorite ways to bring the outdoors in to your wedding. Include them down your ceremony aisle or in your reception, as seen above, for a dramatic effect. Take that, Kate!
