I've never seen one...but I can picture a tree made of wire (think wire hangers for a base)

shape limbs of wire. Spray paint white. wrap the clear lights with white wiring around the tree and limbs then cover with the tulle. Tie it around the limbs with white ribbon. Maybe add small flowers in brides chosen colors.

I would bend the hanger wires out at the bottom to create "roots" and make the tree stand up better.
