In many parts of the country, blossoming cherry blossom trees are one of the earliest signs of spring. These delicate pink trees, known as sakura in Japan, are most famously seen in Washington, DC and Toronto, Canada but also bloom in other locations, including Georgia, Texas, Hawaii, Oregon, and more. If you're hosting spring nuptials, particularly in late March or April, a cherry blossom wedding theme is a lovely idea. And there are so many ways to feature cherry blossoms throughout your wedding, from centerpieces and other wedding decor to desserts, stationery, favors, and more. Looking for some cherry blossom wedding inspiration? We’ve gathered some of our favorite cherry blossom wedding ideas to inspire your springtime event.
