The Bride & Groom's Wishing Tree

Instead of a having a guest book out for Mike and Lindsey's wedding (and because it was the holiday season) we created a "Wishing Tree." It provided an opportunity to have a fun station, where guests could write a happy wish for the couple, and a lot of nice ornaments for their first Chritmas tree as a married couple.
the crafting day about six weeks before the wedding - several tables were set up with stations for the various crafts we needed to complete - bridesmaids, cousins, friends, and family showed up to lend a hand
the ingredients on the tag table included wooden tags (wood-burned by the groom around the edges)
rubber stamps in assorted designs, black ink pads, and string
on wedding day a cute little suitcase held the tags and pens and guests were invited to write their message
for the bride and groom and tie it on the tree that was standing next to the table

Below you can see one of the many tag ornaments hanging on Mike and Lindsey (and Lily's) 1st Christmas Tree in their new home.
