Instead of a wedding guest book, why not have ... a WISHING TREE! Have each guest write their personal well wishes on tags & then hang them on the "wishing tree."

Wishing trees are one of the top 2012 trends that I'm sure you've been seeing in current wedding magazines, bridal shows and weddings. Wishing trees are great for centerpieces at wedding receptions for an outdoor wedding or a nature-inspired wedding theme. If your wedding invitations have a tree theme this wedding decor is perfect.

You can actually create your own wishing tree.  All you need are branch trees (cherry, apple or peach blossom or magnolia or manzanita branches) and decorative accessories like crystals, hanging votive candle holders, orchids, strands of pearls or gems, flowers, note cards, envelopes, message cards, wish cards, ornaments and/or battery operated lights, etc.  So many options! (Check out Wedding Chick's post on DIY Manzanita Wishing Tree if you'd like to make one yourself.)

Below are centerpieces that are designed using tree branches.
