Hey Hive! I’m having a simple but elegant winter wedding, and I have a bunch of handmade paper snowflakes I want to incorporate into the decor somehow. However, I’m having a hard time thinking of something beyond just stringing them into a garland and hanging them.

How big of snowflakes? You could…
-Lay them flat on the tables under your center pieces instead of having a runner. Maybe even have some smaller ones spread out over the table and cover them in glitter (if they aren’t alread).
-Stick some in pictures frames and have them hear the guestbook and escort cards and gift table.
-Hang them over the bar area
-Hang them down along your head or sweetheart table
-Tape them to bathroom mirrors
-Lay them around the cake table

@RunsWithBears: Great ideas, thanks!
The snowflakes are all different sizes, ranging from really small, to nearly as big as a normal sheet of paper.
Any other ideas ladies?

Love the suggestions that @RunsWithBears made… other than that, the only I can think of is to string them over the dance floor area

String them into a banner.
Sprinkle them in the bottom of vases, jars, whatnot on the table and use flameless candles.
Use them as confetti in the center of your tables, or running down the center of your buffet area, guest book/photo area, etc.
Let your guests shower you with them when you enter the reception or leave at the end of the night.
ModPodge them onto inexpensive glass/plastic plates or trays and use them to set out food at the reception.
Frame them in a shadowbox along with a copy of your invitation and other wedding memorabilia.
Make a “runner” of them on the floor for snuggly photos of you with your new husband. (Think “bed of roses”– just bring the dustbuster to pick them up!)

You could make a really cool backdrop for either a photobooth or the ceremony.
This town near my makes a snowflake chandelier each winter and I think its breathtaking!
