Wedding money trees and Memorial Day Weekend marry traditional Christmas trees with other holidays

Replace traditional wedding trees with a white Christmas tree

A white Christmas tree is an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the wedding money tree, as couples can reuse the tree for future Christmases

Many folks will be singing “Oh Christmas Tree” this Memorial Day weekend, but for two very different reasons. While many Americans remember and celebrate the lives of former servicemen, many engaged couples choose Memorial Day weekend to celebrate their weddings. And, as Balsam Hill ® is finding, both camps are using white Christmas trees as part of their festivities.

Balsam Hill ®, the top online purveyor of luxurious and life-like pre lit Christmas trees, consistently sees a lift in sales for white Christmas trees during the summer. “Starting in March we see a large upswing in sales as consumers make their plans for Memorial Day weekend. In fact, we do strong business year-round since our clients realize the versatility of a quality artificial Christmas tree,” says Balsam Hill ® spokeswoman Jennifer Faulkner.

Summer is the company’s best season second to Christmas, Ms. Faulkner comments, as many Americans purchase an artificial Christmas tree to celebrate Memorial Day weekend and the Fourth of July. Engaged couples also routinely purchase white Christmas trees as wedding money trees.

Pre lit Christmas trees offer a unique take on wedding money trees, which make it easy for guests to give cash if they wish to do so. They are typically barren little trees, adorned with tiny clips that guests use to attach bills and envelopes. A white Christmas tree is an aesthetically pleasing and multi-purpose alternative to the usual wedding money tree, because a couple can reuse the tree for future Christmases. “Money trees are a wedding tradition in many cultures,” Ms. Faulkner says, “and we’re pleased that couples choose Balsam Hill ®pre lit Christmas trees to be a part of their wedding décor.”

Besides the summertime lift in sales for white Christmas trees, Balsam Hill ® also sees a boost in sales for its commercial Christmas trees. Towering between ten and fifteen feet, companies and towns use these trees to commemorate America’s great history by decorating the tree in red, white, and blue.
