Wish Tree for Wedding Reception


Are you looking for an alternative to a wedding guest-book?

Like everyone else, we all want our wedding to be unique and to be talked about, in a positive way. When it comes to getting your guests involved in your wedding, the idea of having a wish tree for wedding reception instead of your usual guest-book can indeed make the wedding reception different from the usual affair.

How to Make A Wedding Wish Tree

A wedding wish tree is basically a small sturdy tree of branches, where guests can hang little notes of wishes and dreams for the couple. You can buy a wedding wish tree online or from a wedding shop but you can also make your own. This, in fact, is an easy DIY project that you can do some weeks before your wedding. You can find small branches and assemble them into a small tree where small wish-notes can be hung. Manzanita branches are ideal but you can also make use of any small branches that you might find in your garden or yard.

You can leave the tree branches peeled bare or you can also paint them white or with some metallic paint. You can add ribbons and other accents to it and make it more elegant and presentable.

Wedding Wish Tree Ideas for That Personal Touch

If you are a creative bride, you can always make a unique wedding wish tree and even add a personalized touch. You can add flowers, butterflies, beads and other ornaments that can make your wish tree more elegant and become something that complements your wedding theme. You can use a real small plant with a good number of branches on it, or you can use aluminum wishing trees that are sold online, or simple bare branches of trees adorned with metallic ornaments or beads. Whatever your idea of an elegant wish tree, make sure you get your guests to sign it.

Make your wedding wish tree tags as creative as you can. My friend opted to have something simple but elegant by hanging simple wish cards on the tree with colorful beaded chains.

I actually opened up the idea of wishing trees to a friend during her wedding and she was asking me how to encourage her guests to stop by the wish tree and take time to jot down a few notes.

We came up with the idea of putting a creative sign or a verse telling the guest to make their wishes so that their wishes can come true as well. Of course, you can always tell your bridesmaids to write down their wishes first so that the rest of the guests will follow. Another good idea is to put your wedding wish tree right at, or near the entrance to allow your guests to write down their wishes as they enter the reception area and even before the wedding reception starts.

Wedding Wish Tree Wording and What to Write

Your guests may be wondering what to put on their cute wish cards. You can always give them hints..

Write a message or two for Mr. and Mrs. Mistletoe
Write your wishes for John and Ruby, and hang them in this little tree
Write down your wishes, quotes and even some jokes. For the newlywed loves to put them in her little wish tree book

Or you can always go for the simpler and straightforward “Wishes and Dreams for John and Ruby”. Even with that line, your guests know what to do with it. Your bridal shower wishing well poems can also be used with your wish tree.

Indeed, a wish tree wedding decor or accessory is a new twist to wedding reception stuff these days. But how do you intend to keep those little wish cards after the wedding is over? Some brides would put them in their little wish tree book or in a big ‘message jar’. Some add them to their scrapbook. But that really depends on you.

If you like the idea of a wish tree, we also have some bridal shower wishing well ideas you might like to check out.

How about you? How did you keep all the wish cards after your wedding? Tell us how you made your wish tree and how you kept all those little wishes with you.
