The Wishing Wall

Wishing-wallby Guest Blogger, Monica Hui, WPICC of Wishahmon Wedding Creations in Calgary, AB

In an effort to save money, I have been staying away from shopping malls. Instead, I have been doing some online shopping and paying for shipping! (My efforts of saving have gone out the window.)

I came across a wonderful product at Uncommon Goods called a “Wishing Wall.” Traditionally, at most weddings, guest sign a book or picture of the newly wedded couple. More recently, some couples have cards for guests to sign and to hang on a “wishing tree.” Personally, I feel that the traditional method does not allow me to write enough blessings to the couple. Regarding the wishing tree, I don’t really want everyone to read what I write to the couple!

The Wishing Wall is a wonderful compromise, much like a marriage. Guests can write all their blessings on a piece of paper, roll it up and place it in one of the compartments. They can be as creative and personal as they want. Not only is this a neat way for the couple to reveal and store all the blessings from their guests, I think it will also look cool as a piece of modern artwork.

The Wishing Wall is also Eco-friendly!  It is made out of 100% recycled cardboard and 30% recycled paper fibre.  It comes with a Wish Chest and sells for $45.


  1. I love this idea. I have just the perfect couple to suggest it to.

  2. What a great idea! I agree with you Monica, I think it would make a lovely piece of art, and it wouldn’t scream wedding like some alternative guestbooks do. I can’t wait to share this idea, thanks!

  3. Hi! I was looking at this product for my own reception. When I looked on the Uncommon Goods website I found out the item has been discontinued. Is there any other place where I can find a similar product??

  4. Hi Melissa,
    I searched and searched, but the only place I could find was Uncommon Goods. According to them, it is Out of Stock, not out of production. Give them a call and maybe they have a waitlist.
    Good Luck!

  5. Having read this I believed it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put
    this article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
