Here’s an idea, use your invitations a second time. Since a great deal of money can be spent on wedding invitations custom designed with that personal touch, why not get the most for your dollar and have a lasting memory as well.

When you send your invitations out, include a note that asks each guest to write a personal message to the bride and groom on the inside flap or opposite side of the invitation.  Request that they bring it to the wedding to hang on your Well Wishers Tree. Make sure there is a blank space on the opposite side of the invitation or an attached sheet of paper on the inside flap of the invitation, opposite the front of the invite. This way one side will be the pretty front of your card (invitation) and the other side the written message.  This gives you two uses for your invite and saves on time and money of creating wishing well cards that are placed out on a table at the entrance to the reception.  The rest of the invitation can be cut away and a heart punched in the corner at a reception table, so it can be hung on the tree.  Have pretty ribbon, cut to length on the table for the guests to tie the card with, and hang on the tree.

Having your guests write their message ahead of time gives the guest more time to really think about what message they want to relay to you. You also get your invitation back where normally they are just thrown away.  This provides you the ability to scrapbook them back into a album with pictures of the guests next to the message card.  It’s all good, and unique !
