A Stunning Focal Point for the room as shown in Bride's magazine - Brilliant idea: Simple centerpieces succeed with a single eye-catching installation, such as this crystal-festooned tree, as the party's focal point. The main attraction: tree branches—spray-painted silver, and dripping with crystal ropes—sit atop a special champagne bar (or escort card station). centerpieces. Perfect for Showers, Receptions, Engagement Parties, Brunches and more. Crystal candle holders with taper candles serve as simple guest table decorations, while crystal leafs adorne the backs of the chairs (double as guest favors). Bride's magazine is full of stunning decor ideas like this.  You can subscribe to Bride's by visiting their website at Brides.com.

This stunning tree was made using 16mm and 26mm size glass crystal octagons linked with gold (brass) eye-pin connectors into long ropes, however you could use silver for a different look. To stretch the budget to creat this magnificent tree, considering using glass crystals in varying sizes. You can create a similar tree with a lesser quality of crystal by using our acrylic strands, however there is a distinct difference in quality and sparkle which is best seen when viewed in direct light such as ambient spot room lighting (shining down on the crystal tree in these pictures and up from the base).
 
Due to the abundance of requests regarding the Crystal Wedding trees we have listed the following info:

 

 

 
This tree was made using 30% leaded crystal strands but you can acheive the same look with our glass crystals.

It is ok to mix glass strands with leaded strands, but do not mix in acrylic.

If you use acrylic to make a tree, you need to use all acrylic pieces.

All of our strands can be seperated/attached on every half inch.

Create a stunning crystal wedding tree for your special day.
 
As seen in numerous bridal magazines. Easy to create, use our crystal balls or even our acrylic spheres hung from silver craft wire to add shimmer and sparkle. Imagine glass crystals hung with candlelight! This is a cost-efficent way to acheive the beautiful look without the high price tag.
 
 
 Shown are 20mm crystal balls.

A Stunning Focal Point for event, wedding reception or home decorations, this Stunning crystal wedding tree from Sandals Caribbean Resorts is breathtaking. It uses far less crystals than Crystal Tree Project shown on this page (see below) (making it less expensive). You can make a similar tree, with or without the orchids or votive cups with the same crystal found here on our site. This tree, like the other crystal tree seen on this page, works for daytime or evening events. Daylight (unlike candle-light) causes unbelievable rainbows of light in the crystals used, bringing out a sparkle that cannot be captured on film or with indoor lighting. It is just unbelievable for an outdoor ceremony and can be moved indoors for an indoor reception.

 
The signature "Crystal Wedding Tree" with votive crystals and  orchids  hanging from tree branches stands elegantly in the box, providing stylish shade for the sunken pool already filled with hundreds of water lilies. Cushions in rich, sensuous tones of cerise, citrus and lavender are thrown 'off-handedly' throughout the room, further softening the effect.Weddings in the Caribbean are, after all, a perfect juxtaposition of warm, laid-back chic, spiced ever so gently with pomp and tradition.

This tree is a special native tree found in the Carribean which is hung with crystals (they are not round balls, but octagons which are narrow from the side and reflect more light however balls could also be used), orchids and pot shaped glass votive cups. 

PRESTON BAILEY SIGNATURE CRYSTAL COLLECTION

You can purchase our crystal octagons or pre-strung strands and make a similar tree. Not sure what size tree to buy?  We have found a great site that offers the Manzanita tree - visit Nettleton Hollow for more information about the trees.
 
The tree used in the picture is a tree native to the Caribbean which you will not likely find it to use in your area. You will need to substitute the tree. 
 

Instructions to make a wedding tree.
 
The most common question we get is "How many crystals will I need to create these trees?"
 
There is no definate answer. Some people will want very full trees, while others may want subtle crystal highlights. No matter what your look it  is best to get your tree first so you will have a better idea of how you want it to look.
 
The best way to estimate how many strands you will need is to use thread tied to paperclips.
    • Tie the thread (weighed down with the paperclip) to your branches. This replicates the strands.
    • Once you have the look you want. Remove the threads counting the inches your tree requires.
    • Divide the number of inches by 36 and that will give you an idea of how many strands you need.
