1. Acrylic Snowflake Decorations
Acrylic snowflake decorations come in many different shapes and sizes. They look pure and romantic and are simply perfect for winter weddings.
Clear acrylic snowflakes look best at weddings styled in silver, white and light-blue tones. But you can’t go wrong with snowflakes at winter weddings. If you have your heart set on a warm Christmas colour scheme, perhaps a combination of dark red, dark green and gold, you can be sure that clear snowflakes will still blend in nicely.
Acrylic snowflake ornaments could be given to guests as practical wedding favours with an elegant tag with the words “thank you for sharing our special day with us”. Or, you could collect all snowflakes that were used for decorating the wedding venue. and place them in a nice box. This box could be then given as a special Christmas tree decoration set to the parents of the bride or the groom. Or, the snowflake decorations could be kept by the new Mr & Mrs, brightening their household each Christmas.
2. Snowflake Cocktails
Winter cocktails often have the form of winter warmers. Cranberries, cinnamon, cloves and brandy might be the first few flavours that come to your mind when winter cocktails are mentioned.
Cocktails can also have a crisp, icy look. The edge of the glass can be coated in sugar, resembling freshly fallen snow. The drinks could be served in etched glasses with snowflake motives. Or, the cocktail stirrers could be snowflake-shaped. Printed cocktail napkins with the happy couple’s initials surrounded by snowflakes could be the perfect finishing touch.
3. Snowflake Cookies
Snowflake-shaped cookie cutters are not difficult to find. For a very simple DIY project, use the same cookie cutters for the cookies and the sugarpaste.
A snowflake cookie covered in white sugar paste is nice enough on its own. Snowflake cookies could be arranged on a tray or in a basket.
You could use a small piping bag to decorate the cookie, forming neat lines.
To make the cookies very personal, pipe the guests’ names on the cookies and use them as place settings or as wedding favours.
4. Snow Photography
Couples getting married in Nordic countries or other countries where snow is practically guaranteed during winter could explore various photographic opportunities.
The bride’s and groom’s initials or the wedding date could be written in snow and photographed. Even a simple heart drawn in snow will look marvellous on photographs.
The couple could make a heart-shaped snowball and hold this snowball in their hand, with the wedding rings showing.
5. Snowflake Confetti
Miniature snowflakes, whether made of paper or wood could be used as table confetti.
You could scatter adorable miniature snowflakes across the whole table or create a patch with snowflakes in the central part of the table, instead of using a table runner.
You could also arrange tiny snowflake decorations around the centerpiece or around other object on the table, such as candles.
Snowflake confetti could be placed in flower girls baskets and could be scattered by the flower girls in front on the bride as she walks down the isle. You can be sure that this scene will melt everyone’s heart!
These are just a few examples of incorporating snowflakes into wedding ceremonies and receptions. Whether you are a creative wedding planner, a bride-to-be or a groom-to-be, you could probably come up with many other ideas of how to use snowflakes to create a dreamy ambiance.
