I saw this adorable idea at one of my friend’s wedding, Ellen Crawford, now Soresen. You can check out her entire beautiful wedding here.
I love the idea of having your guests contribute to a beautiful work of art that can hang in your future home after the wedding rather than a traditional guest book.
I showed my sister the idea of having our guests “leaf” their fingerprints and signatures on a guest tree. But we were both worried about the possibility of smearing and the annoyance of our guests having colored fingers all evening. And it was possible that having them go one by one would great a bottleneck to getting into the wedding. So, we found an alternate idea…
We were inspired by this vendor on Etsy: FunnySideofLife
Instead of using thumb prints, we can use paper leaves. Ranelle and I think we’re going to paint paper to keep it looking like a painting.
My lovely sister, Ranelle, sketched the tree and then we painted it together. I think it looks awesome so far!!
And here is the almost finished product!
