Wishing trees are a beautiful way to introduce a decor element with a sentimental touch. A wishing tree is a tradition that began years ago in the depression era where guests used to tie dollar bills to a handmade tin foil tree. The bride and groom would use the money to set up housekeeping or have a honeymoon. To this day, have become very popular at weddings. The guests write their wishes or their thoughts on a successful marriage for the couple on a little piece of paper or any decorative tab. The tab is then hung up on the tree to create a thoughtful display. At your wedding, the element of decor could be matched to the color scheme of your wedding. You can add a ribbon, yarn, or even clothespins as a decorative way to hang the wishes on the tree. A wishing tree can be displayed in many different ways. They can be casual, rustic, modern or elaborately grand in style depending on what fits best with your wedding theme. They are inexpensive and you can customize the branches by adding crystals, flowers, or candles and you can even paint them to fit the color scheme of your wedding. The gold, silver, and all natural wishing trees are very popular here at Creative Ambiance Events, especially because they seem to be a great neutral start for what is being showcased on the branches such as flowers. They provide an elegant, custom atmosphere specific to your own wedding. At the finish of the wedding the coordinator can package them in a decorative box (we supply custom keepsake boxes) and later on, the bride and groom can read the wishes or advice from the guests. We have had some open their box the wedding night, the following morning or even at the one year anniversary. This is a beautiful keepsake for the couple to reflect on their wedding day!
