Wedding Tree Guestbooks

I have been admiring this idea from afar for quite some time now... so of course I wanted to share it with you. Wedding tree guestbooks!! This traditional guestbook alternative is a fun and interactive way for your guests to "leave" their mark on your special day (no pun intended). When the day has past, hang this one of a kind piece of art in your home to cherish for the years to come.

There are a couple ways of producing your wedding tree, below are some ideas I came across. Cute, right!?! Of course I would provide the tree print with a custom wedding monogram to match.
The trees above have a multi-color leaf design. These leaves are die-cut from different colored card stocks that have little permanent adhesive glue dots on the back of them (keep paper backing on each glue dot for ease of handling, when guest is ready to hang their signed leaf all they have to do is remove the paper backing and stick it to the tree! Simple as that. Glue dots brand are my recommended dot of choice and can be found at your local craft/office supply store.

Above are thumbprint tree designs; guests will stamp their thumbprint using provided ink pads (that won't leave ink on them after washing of hands) on an open tree branch and then sign their name next to it- and ta-da, your tree is complete!  Ink for these "fingerprint" leaves can be found at JoAnn Fabric.


  1. Lovely idea! I found your blog through Paper Concierge - I'm a fellow concierge!

    I also have a simple lifestyle blog:

  2. ...actually, the tree in the top picture uses self-adhesive leaves, not a glue dot. The leaves are much more permanent this way and will ensure you have your 'artwork' for years to come.
