Ideas and Inspiration for a Cherry Blossom Wedding

Lucky for us, its the time of year where cherry blossoms are blooming around us. With the delicate and sweet look of the blossoms, we can’t help but be awed by their beauty. In fact, cherry blossoms have been marveled at for many years, especially in Japan where the blossoms resemble the fragility and beauty of life. And with that in mind, we thought what better time to enjoy the blossoms then on your wedding day. Unfortunately, cherry blossoms are only in bloom for a short period of time — usually for just a couple of weeks in March or April — so you have to be strategic about your venue and date if you want to include fresh blossoms into your big day. But not to worry, there are plenty of other inspirational ways to include the blooms in your wedding whether that be a color scheme, prints, or fake flowers, Take a peek at some of our favorite ways to incorporate cherry blossoms and their beautiful pink color into your wedding below and don’t forget to check out our cherry blossom wedding gear, too.

As far as supplies go, we love the idea of incorporating light pink pieces such as our vintage glassware. It’s just the right shade, and a great way to give a nod to cherry blossoms without being too literal.
