Introduction: LightedDIY Wedding : Crystal Manazanita (wishing) Wedding Tree
We wanted to have a nice wedding with 125-135 guests on a $14,000 max budget, so we had to plan and do most it ourselves. I spent less than 600 total on wedding flowers and centerpieces. This is a recreation of how I made my own manzanita crystal tree
