 A Stunning Focal Point for the room as shown in Bride's magazine - Brilliant idea: Simple crystal 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 or gold, and dripping with crystal ropes or crystal garland—sit atop a special champagne bar (or escort card centerpieces). Perfect for Bridal or Baby Showers, Receptions, Engagement Parties, Brunches, Corporate parties and more. Crystal candle holders with taper candles serve as simple guest table decorations, while crystal french pendants or leafs adorne the backs of the chairs (these could 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 of garland, however you could use silver for a different look. To stretch the budget to create this magnificent crystal garland 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 of chainns or garland, 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 leaded crystal strands BUT you can acheive great results with glass!!!

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.


 
In this wedding video you will see a crystal wedding tree with large crystals instead of strands as well as a designers' take on adding crystals and sparkle to your wedding or special event.                                     
 
In this crystal wedding tree video you will see a bride discuss using a crystal wedding tree in her wedding and you will see the final results of her wedding. Cristalier is proud to be a supplier of the design house who put together this amazing wedding.

Cristalier.com suuplies some of the worlds' largest companies with our line of crystals. We manufacture our own line of brilliant crystals so you are always sure to get the finest quality at the lowest prices. While we do not manufacture lead crystals, our glass crystals are brilliant. Your crystal wedding tree will sparkle with glass crystal garland but cost less than half the price if you use more expensive lead crystals.

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 above) (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,
 
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.You could even add some crystals chains, strands or garland for additional sparkle.
PRESTON BAILEY SIGNATURE CRYSTAL COLLECTION

You can purchase our crystal octagons or pre-strung strands, chains and garland 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 create your very own 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.
