I like the way it looks….but i think having a “Money” tree isn’t really a good idea. If i saw that at a wedding I would think its kinda rude. I mean people will be giving you cards with money in it anyways. I’m having a wishing tree at my wedding at i just love the idea of those. but your tree looks really cute. i like how it lights up.

ohh my just an idea…but at my moms wedding(i know a long time ago) but she had the idea, where for about 10 minutes they would have a song playing it was just for the bride to dance with anyone who wants to dance with her, but she charged a $1 for each dance, and that person could dance with her til someone else wants to dance. she said she made around $30. And she said some guys even danced with her 2 or 3 times. She said people just thought it was a funny and creative idea.  Its just an idea, I dont have that personality to do it, but maybe you can think about it?

1. Anyone who is willing to openly judge you so harshly on your wedding ideas shouldn’t be invited to your wedding.   

2.Money trees, dollor dances are a part of some culture’s and weddding tradition and cultrual diversity should be celebrated not ridiculed. 

3. That being said… there are some alternatives that the westernization of weddings has allowed for. Decorative wedding boxes or birdgcages that guests can place cards in. Or allow guest to place hand written notes inside the bags along so they aren’t just for montary gifts. 

4. Personally, I would feel uncomfortable with bills out in the open becasue some guest may feel obligated or embarrased if they can’t give as much as they would like. the bags makes the gifts more descrete for their protection and give the tree the look of fall. very beautiful.
This is also why I am making a tree for table decoration but am actually using a card box in order to avoid this exact dilemma.

I don’t know about the money tree but its your wedding. I think the tree looks nice, maybe in another vase. However, even with money in it I still don’t think people would get it. Have you consider doing just a card box with a slot in it. People will know what to do because most people will bring a card and put money in it. However, it is your family and friends and it is your day so have fun with it. Maybe a clear vase with like lose change at the button might help people understand its a money tree 🙂
