A new, exciting and popular alternative to the guest book or signing frame is the Wedding Wishing Tree. Guests each take a ‘tag’, provided by the happy couple, and they write on their hopes, and wishes for their newly married friends/family members, along with any thanks or personal messages. They then tie their tags to the ‘wishing tree’ and hope their wishes come true. If placed outside the messages flutter in the breeze more and more as the wishes come together. Add Swarovski crystals and bright ribbons to the tags to create a crystal wishing tree and see the magic happen as the tree becomes a dance of colour and light.
wedding wishing trees and decorations
Indoors the trees will take shape in the same way creating a beautiful, decorative focal point for your guests. A wishing tree is a memorable way to collect meaningful and genuine sentiments and adds a thought provoking dimension to the celebrations.
The beautiful trees can also be used to hang escort cards or wedding wishing tree tags from as a delightful alternative to a table plan or to hang baubles or floral/heart decorations from the branches to create a dramatic table centerpiece instead of a floral arrangement.
If you're having a wedding wishing tree or want to decorate an out-of-doors venue then we have lots of inspiration for you within this department. Wishing trees are a lovely idea, apart from being an attractive addition to the wedding venue styling they encourage interactive fun for the guests as they write down all their hopes and advice for the happy couple. Often chosen instead of the traditional guest book a wedding wishing tree can also work well for escort cards. Each guest's name is written on a little envelope and, inside, their table name or number is listed; again a fun way for your guests to find out where they are seated. Simply peg the escort cards onto the tree like lots of leaves! If you are decorating an actual tree then all the pretty hanging hearts, mini lanterns, mirror hearts and keys, suspended from colourful ribbons will look beautiful. The tags will always work well within venue styling for numbering or naming tables, adding information about food or drink options and using as fun and contemporary place cards, handwritten in a script font, all very Alice in Wonderland!
