Snowflakes – Five DIY Ideas

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.

  1. When my wife and I were discussing wedding dates we were both thinking of a December wedding but at the last minute chickened out for fear of the weather and people being able to make that day should we get a bad storm. One of the reasons we were considering winter was for the decorations both holiday and winter. We had some of the same ideas for sure including snow decorations should we have gotten snow that day. We even had a cocktail picked out. Oh well, maybe one of my girls will opt for a Winter wedding.

  2. I love all the ideas I see here. And it was interesting to hear about what couples do in Nordic countries when they get married. I really can’t envision being able to mold a heart out of snow like a snowball, though. But I supposed after it has hardened some and is like ice. Thanks!

  3. I have never considered a winter wedding before, but I love all those DIY elements! The ornament idea is a favorite of mine because I feel like it is such a meaningful keepsake and I’ve always loved the look of snowflakes.

  4. Beautiful snowflake ideas to make a wedding extra special. I love the idea of using some of the decorations for a keepsake for the parents of the newlyweds or the newlyweds themselves. It would be wonderful to have a lasting memento tradition to enjoy every Christmas. I also love the snow photography idea. I may be recreating this for my wedding anniversary which is January 31st.
