I was at Target today picking up a few things, while browsing the Christmas section. I came across these adorable crystal, diamond looking ornaments. They come in a package of 24 and they were only $6.00, and are the pefect size for any brides looking for an elegant way to decorate their wedding wish tree. I tried looking them up on Targets website to post the link, but I couldnt find them. I just thought I would pass the info on to some other brides looking for a budget way to do things, as I am. If anyone has any questions please feel free to message me.

I want to have a wishing tree. The ornaments sound beautiful.

That does sound beautiful – thank you for the tip!
For brides doing a wish tree, do you have any helpful suggestions for its construction? I was going to enlist the help of my dad, and start with birch branches (less expensive than manzanita), foam, and Plaster of Paris (or concrete). I also thought of getting a shorter (maybe 4 foot) white Christmas tree, but then thought maybe it was TOO Christmas-y (for an April wedding!) looking and perhaps not the best for hanging wish cards on.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcome!

I had a wish tree and my sister constructed it. She found inexpensive manzanita branches online at…Hobby Lobby I think. They weren’t very tall (and they didn’t need to be, either). She used florists foam at the bottom of a square glass vase, and then filled it with those craft bead things (I can never remember the proper name for them, but I think you know what I mean) and some swarovski crystals and other beads for stability. Then she used strung beads and pretty wire to decorate it.
Here’s a guest picture:
We used ornament hooks to put the wishes on the tree.
I think it turned out pretty well.

I bought a wishing tree kit from bloomsandbranches.com the kit was $48.95 and including 5 branches and 2 boxes to put them in. I had Fiance screw the two bottom boxes together and I wrapped them in gold ribbon so they looked like one unit.
I then ordered a box of 250 free business cards from vistaprint.com (I actually paid $8 to have the back side printed). I then punched holes in them and tied them with white ribbon. I bought strands of crystals from the Christmas tree shop. The whole project cost me $67 bucks.
