New Twist For the Wishes Tree
Wishes trees come in all shapes, colors, and styles. Whether you purchase one already made or make one yourself they add a personal touch from your guests and another decorative feature to your wedding. Use your wedding colors for accents.
Here are some ways I think you could make the trees more personal and not your usual tree! From Choose to Thrive.
One of the things I’ve found with weddings is that guest don’t normally inspect or participate in all the different items you have at the reception. I think having your family pictures and pictures of the bride and groom on the wishes tree would be a great way to get them to the wishes tree to write a wish for you. I love the heart shape for a wedding.
Here’s another one from The Crafting Chicks. The frames would give you a more formal look. I love the cockeyed pictures on the frames.
The tiny hearts on it are adorable also. Both provide wonderful tutorials.
I think the pictures would make great Christmas ornaments for the new couples tree to keep.
I love the bird birds and lights added to this one from www.theweddinggals.net. Click on the picture for a sharper image. I’m not sure why it gets fuzzy on me sometimes.
And last but not least from The Wedding Gals. This one was using a tree purchased a number of years ago with the gold beads for branches. A little tulle and wire ribbon and I think it turned out gorgeous especially considering the historical house the reception was held at. I am biased though. This is from my daughter’s wedding. We stamped various sayings with gold ink and stamps purchased from Michaels crafts. Gold was one of her wedding colors.
Here is something else to consider. After the wedding I collected the wishes and tags and have them safely stored away. For the couple’s first wedding anniversary I will be mailing them to them so they can be nostalgic all over again.
We hope you enjoyed the different twists on the wishes tree.
