@Mrs.Oat: Haha thanks! I joke and say you know how they say the acorns don’t fall far from the tree, well it’s the same as wedding leaves! 

I just saw this on pinterest and thought it was cute so I wanted to share:

Personally I think the idea is cute but to be honest i wouldnt give my fingerprint at a wedding even if wipes were provided I would just feel like it was too much effort. I would sign my name though

Here’s our fingerprint tree! One of my best friends painted it for us and we used colorbox ink, it doesn’t stain your fingers. We had two little buckets, one with hand wipes and one for trash. Most everyone participated, only one person used the ink pad to make their mark instead of their finger. 

Our fingerprint tree framed, right out of the box! Sorry it’s so giant. We had ours top mounted because some people signed right to the edge.

I was planning to a use little leaf stamp, but now I’m thinking maybe the fingerprints will be more personal. SO MANY DECISIONS! Agh.

@dmcanespy:  you HAVE to do thumbprints!!  =D  We did this at our wedding, and my most favorite prints are people that had their kids do it (one even printed their sleeping baby!)- they’re so tiny and adorable!!  It adds so much character to the tree with the actual thumbprints.

For those of you worried about people not wanting ink on their fingers, don’t be.  If people REALLY don’t want to do it, they won’t, but I found my guests were wearing it like a bagde of honor, going around giving each other the green thumbs-up!  =)

 

Also, my hubby found the BEST poem to put on a sign by the tree so people knew what to do:

“Leaf” your thumbprint on a branch, then sign your name below, so in the years to come we know who helped our marriage grow!

@Ambrocked: LOVE THE SAYING!! might need to borrow that! Here is our tree. My mom bought the ink for us and she bought like 15 different colors. Im worried it’ll look like a multi-color tree now…but it is all in one box. Think it will look ok?

This is what we are doing for our guests. I found the template on “Zazzle” and did the changes that made personal to us. I’m now working on the instructions for the guests to use

Ours turned out fantastic. Everybody loved it and I even had a bride to be say t hat she was going to do the same thing at her wedding.

Here’s a pic of the final product, just previous to getting all the fingers 🙂 People actually did a great job of not smudging, keeping kids controlled, and doing an even job.

I was actually surprised at how beautifully it turned out.

It was drawn by my father in law 🙂
