I made this for my brother and SIL as a gift for their wedding next weekend. What do you think?  Would you like getting something like this?

The words in the tree are the lyrics to their first dance song.

Oh, and don't worry, I didn't cheap out, I promise.  I just wanted to give them something to enjoy in their home.

Here is my inspiration pic

It needs a bit more color. There's too much white. Maybe the tree could be a darker color with lighter words? Very cute idea.

ETA: I might also make the tree in bloom, not barren.

 The inspiration pic was all white.  I added the pop of blue.  I did it very plain to go with their style.

It's very nice, reminds me a bit of a good wedding gift you can add if you wish. Do you still have their wedding invitation? If so cut it into strips, curl it around a pen or something, then drop it into a clear glass ornament and tie with a ribbon the color of the wedding theme. I made some very similar last year for my tree exept I used vintage music sheets and a red ribbon, they look great on my tree,I would post a picture but I'm on my iPad!
