Wedding Wish Tree

Posted March 3, 2014 | 63 Comments

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! We hope you had a wonderful weekend. We are kicking off this beautiful, snowy, below-zero-degree-temperatures kind of Monday with a fun idea for your wedding. PLUS, we’re launching a brand new giveaway! But first… have you heard of the wedding wish tree? A wish tree, also known as a manzanita tree, is a fun guest book alternative your guests will love. It can also serve as a lovely place to display your wedding favors. Read on to find out more about the wedding wish tree, see an example, find out where you can buy it, and enter for a chance to win a wedding wish tree of your very own! It’s all inside…

Wedding Wish Tree

We spotted this collection of wedding wish trees over at Simply Mad Weddings and love them! A wedding wish tree adds visual interest and sparkle to your elegant reception… and, most of all, it’s functional! A wedding wish tree can be placed as a centerpiece or on a large table as a focal point at your reception and serve as a guest book alternative or as a wedding favor display. As a guest book alternative, here’s how it works: guests are given ‘wish tags’ (cards with a ribbon or twine attached to the top). Guests fill out their wish tags and hang them from branches on the tree.

Your guests will love to stop by and sign the wish tags while viewing other guests’ “well wishes”. After the wedding, you can take all of the tags and scrapbook them for reading after the honeymoon.

If you prefer to use the wedding wish tree to display favors, ornaments are a perfect choice! (You can find these ornaments at Simply Mad Weddings.)
