The wishing tree is a beautiful wedding day custom with Dutch origins. In lieu of signing a guest book, wedding guests are asked to write their wishes and greetings to the happy couple on wish tags. Guests then hang their wishes on the wedding tree using clips, ribbon, hooks, or string. Save On Crafts offers ready made wedding trees in a wide variety of colors, materials, and sizes. You can also construct your own custom wishing tree by using natural Manzanita branches, anchored within a cylindrical vase or pot with stones.
