The Wishing Tree is a tradition which stems from the Netherlands and is very popular for weddings and special occasions. 

The Wishing Tree tradition originally had a bare branch or branches which were placed near the bridal couple and each guest were given a tag in the shape of a leaf. The guests were invited to write their well wishes on the tag and place it on the tree, thus filling the tree with well wishes. 

Today, this tradition has expanded its roots, pardon the pun.

It has been adopted in a similar light and taken the place of a Guest Book in many cases. The Wishing Tree is generally placed in the reception area where the wedding party will be able to access it easily.

Many couples prefer the idea of using the Wishing Tree or as a visual point in the banqueting room to enhance the decor, where they are entertaining their guests. 

You can go out a branch further thou. (Please excuse this pun also!).

It is a beautiful idea to display a Wishing Tree at a Wedding Reception, Engagement Party, Baby Naming Ceremony, Baby Shower, Baptisim or Christening occasion,Family Naming Ceremony, First Holy Communion, Confirmation or even the passing of a loved one. The possibilities are endless.

A Wishing Tree gives your guests or visitors an opportunity to write their thoughts and then have it displayed collectively with everyone that is present on the day.
