The Wishing Tree

Browsing through some creative ways to let the guests leave their well wishes and good lucks at a wedding, I really liked the “wishing tree”. More “guest book” ideas will be popping up soon, but I thought I’d throw these in here since they fit the rustic theme I so badly want.

The idea is to have branches or a bare miniature tree (a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree if you will) set up at a table with blank tags that the guests can fill out and write their messages to the bride and groom on.

Some twists:
  •  You can make the tags in all different patterns that match your wedding colors/theme
  •  The tags could be cut out to match your theme (flower, bird, candy, star shapes, etc.)
  •  The tree can be used as reception décor (I am all about hitting two birds with one stone)
  •  The tree can be outfitted in any way you choose… spray paint it gold or silver or your wedding colors, add glitter, or even make it a Christmas theme and have the guests sign ornaments instead of tags (provided you are getting married in December), etc.

You can find instructions via Style Me Pretty's Style Circle on how to do this here

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a
    very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for
    me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
