I liked the idea, but wasn’t sure what we would do with the wish cards afterwards. I didn’t want a regular book for the same reason, what will we ever do with it?

So we’re doing the thumbprint wedding tree, when it’s done it will be art :o)

@Mrs.Passion: You’re welcome! :o)

It happens to go very well with our rustic/vintage/candlelit reception too. This is what ours looks like:

I’ve seen a vase and everyone writes on the card and drops it in a vase but still, what do you do with the cards after. I guess adhere them in a book and maybe sell the tree base to another bride?

@Mrs.tobe: Oh, that is so amazing! Can you please explain the concept of how you did it? It’s gorgeous.

@bRooklynRocks:I actually tried to paint one myself, just to see. I quickly found out that I am WAY too judgemental/ a perfectionist to DIY on this one…lol

After I got the idea that this was what I wanted to do (I saw the original idea on the knot) I went on the search for the perfect wedding tree. I actually got this one from a seller on Etsy. She was great, customized it the way I wanted, had great communication, and shipped it FAST!

I can’t wait to see it after the reception! Whoever originally came up with this idea needs a big kiss from me!

We did both!  But instead of a wishing tre e ( seems like every wedding we went to did it) we had jars labeled 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25.  Guest wrote on cards their advice and placed in the jar that corresponded with advice for that year! Open up  each jar on that anniversary year! It was unique!
