Isn't a reception with ghost chairs just lovely? I saw one photo of this online and thought 'what a unique idea!'. Then I googled it some more and it seems it's been done quite nicely by many. Can't imagine how much this would cost even for a small party!
Style Me Pretty has a small gallery of some more ghost chair receptions. They also look quite neat for a ceremony!
