My daughter is having a winter themed wedding.
I read somewhere, that for the bride & grooms first dance “they” (whoever “they” are)
made it snow for the couples first dance. I find that very romantic & would love to surprise her with this idea.
The ceilings at the venue are maybe 13 to 16 feet, not that tall.
I have no idea how to pull it off. Need help & advice if anyone has any.
I bought about 10 or more bags of fake snow last winter so I do have that.
Just need to figure out how to make it happen.
or even people to hire, but who?
Please help with your ideas. I know there are many creative people on this sight and look forward to hearing what you can come up with.

@ghfan247: what about using a large umbrella filled w/ “snow” that could be tipped by a cord?

@ghfan247: Have you checked with the venue to okay doing something like this? Just curious as my venue won’t even allow guests to throw rice or use confetti!

Maybe you could use a sheet and somehow string it up and then pull that with a cord? Similar to the umbrella idea but may be easier and that way all the “snow” doesn’t fall right in one place.. it could fall around them more…

There are snow machines you can buy ranging from 108 (amazon) to 1000+ depending on the quality. Some DJ’s also use these. I’ve used the expensive theater model on stage with great results.

Just found another idea. Rental/event rental companies sometimes rent confetti machines out… you could maybe use this (have some one stand behind somewhere and aim it up) to shoot the fake snow up in the air. Though I don’t know how loud it is. This is a rental company in Canada but just wanted to include the link so you knew what I was talking about.

@ghfan247: I’ve done this for theatre productions. Here’s a good link on making a snow cradle: http://www.pnta.com/customer-service/faq/how-to-make-a-snow-cradle/
The biggest problem is rigging it SAFELY from the ceiling. Do you have a local theatre you can contact? They might be able to hook you up with someone who could do it for you. Another option might be gobos and doing a lighting effect, easier to clean up.
