Wedding Tree / Fingerprint Tree ideas, - the perfect alternative to a wedding guest book

Here at wedding fusions we love guest book alternatives for traditional wedding items, as it’s always good to have something a little bit different! Wedding guest books are really lovely of course but it can be tricky to find something original/witty/funny/lovey to say for those little words of congratulations (and after the wedding the book just ends up gathering dust in a long forgotten drawer!)


Wedding Tree / Fingerprint Tree ideas

 This is where fingerprint trees come in, not only are they the perfect wedding keepsake but they are a unique memento to cherish forever. Placed in your favorite frame, your tree becomes a fabulous piece of centerpiece art for your wall (and a great talking point!)

 So what is a wedding tree exactly? Well, as the name suggests it’s a tree! Guests ink their thumbs and stamp distinctive thumb leaves around the tree branches filling up the design with lots of beautiful foliage! Even better, you can always choose your inks and text color to match your color palette. It’s a great way to really involve your guests and make memories together...


 They don’t need to be a thumbprint tree either! Instead of leaves, guests can ink their thumbs to leave thumbprint balloons over a variety of designs. Over a lovely little wedding bicycle, a cute and fun cupcake or a wedding couple design! (In fact they are suitable for a whole host of events and occasions as fingerprint mementos for baby showers/birthdays/retirements and of course engagement parties!)

 What size will I need? Well this depends on the size of your guest list but ensure you make it large enough so that there’s room for plenty of thumbprints!

All examples shown are 16in x 20in but below are sample guide sizes for you!

8x10 inches = 5 to 25 thumbprints
11x14 inches = 25 to 60 thumbprints
16x20 inches = 60 to 150 thumbprints
20x24 inches = 150 to 200 thumbprints
