Make It A Wedding Blessing

I really like the idea of wedding wish tree tags.  They are fun for those that attend the wedding reception to write messages on the back of each tag and hang them on a tree.  These little tags make a great keepsake item for the Bride and Groom.  Not sure how long the trend will last, so I jumped in to design a few of my own tags.
First I went traditional and classic style.  These tags can be customized with the bride and groom's name and wedding date.

But, as a woman of faith, and a designer of such objects, it bothered me.  The wish thing.  I designed a few...Best Wishes For The Bride & Groom as well as just stating Best Wishes. 

Didn't feel right as the idea of a wish seemed against what I believe.  So I have changed up the idea to be about Blessings.  Yeah,  Blessings for the Bride & Groom.  And, Wedding Blessings.  Now that's more like it!
Ahh, I feel better already.
Made double-sided table numbers to coordinate with tags. 

Well--onto more crafting.

Have a blessed day,



  1. I've never attended a wedding with wish tree tags but I definitely LOVE your Wedding Blessing Tags. The table numbers are lovely too! Wonderful ideas Valerie!...Nancy :o)

  2. A wedding wish tree is a great idea, but I've never attended a wedding that had one. Your tags are beautiful and I love your "blessed" sentiments best!!!

  3. Gorgeous tags and the way you made them blessing tags is a beautiful sentiment. Those photos below are beautiful, I want to transport that field of flowers close to me and let my kids run in it while I have a trusty camera at hand. Just stunning! Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.
