The guest's write the newlyweds a "well wish" on a card that has ribbon attached, then hang the card on a tree (similar to the pic I posted). This is in lieu of a guest book. It is pretty expensive for my florist to do the tree, so I am wondering if this is something I could attempt on my own.

oh, duh, i probably could have figured that out if i thought about it, lol....

 

you could find a cool looking branch outside and use that (we actually had one on the bottom shelf of the console table - but do it right before the wedding b/c it gets moldy after awhile). get a styrofoam square from a craft store and pop it right in there...then cover the square w/ flowers or whatnot, securing w/ hot glue....

 

my only question is how are you going to travel with it....?

Traveling would be the only problem.. silver or gold spray paint and some sort of base that won't fall over. You can always cover it with a draping cloth of some sort.. It would be so pretty with strings of crystals (you could easily make or buy from a craft store. The jewelry section at Michael's already has them strung together).

 

How much is the florist charging? Seems weird that it would be that much.
