Always on the look out for new creative ideas for brides, I came across this great idea reading My DIY Wedding Day Blog (yes, I read other blogs too). Money may not grow on trees, but good wishes do! Have your guests write you little notes on hang tags and attach them to a tree branches instead of using a traditional guest book on your wedding day. After the reception, keep the tree on display at home as a decorative memento of the day, or slide off all the wishes and keep them in a glass vase. I am sure Event Pros LA will use this idea very soon! Thank you DIY Wedding Day.
- You’ll need:
- hang tags (paper-source.com has plain ones in a variety of colors)
- half a dozen tree branches (bloomsandbranches.com or any from your backyard will do)
- a tall glass vase
- four dozen marbles
First, arrange the tree branches in the tall glass vase and stabilize them with marbles. Next, cut four inch pieces of ribbon that match your wedding color theme and thread through the hangtags. (For a twist, you can use different colored hang tags for guests of the bride and guests of the groom, if you’d like. Or, we love the custom-made silhouette hang tags from sesameletterpress.com.) Once the guests have written wishes and notes to you on the tags, they’ll tie them onto the branches.
