Sakura Cherry Blossom Wedding Theme


Author: Katlin Dowlin

The cherry blossom is the flower of the Cherry Tree, and while most people commonly think that the tree produces only pink blooms, the most common of varieties produce white blooms. In either case, the flowers are stunningly exquisite and with a little creativity and imagination, allow for the creation of a beautiful and elegant wedding theme.

The Cherry Blossom is the national flower of Japan; one of the reasons it is closely associated with Japanese weddings and celebrations. There is much symbolism surrounding the Cherry Blossom and much of this meaning is often found in wedding ceremonies today. Across many cultures, the flower represents life and love. In Japan, the Blossom is an omen of good fortune and also represents love and affection, as well as being closely tied to the spring season.

Cherry Blossom trees were brought to the United States in 1912, when Japan gifted over 3,000 trees to celebrate the developing relationship between the two countries. These magnificent trees can now be found throughout the country, with many cities now hosting annual Festivals that celebrate their awe-inspiring beauty, (the most notable being the National Festival in Washington, D.C.) which usually take place between the months of March and April.

The limited blooming season of these trees makes them somewhat rare; it is this rarity that contributes, in part, to their beauty and elegance. For those brides fortunate enough to be married mid-March to mid-April, Cherry Blossoms are readily available. This is not to say however, that a bride cannot incorporate the significance of this beautiful flower into her wedding to create a unifying wedding theme during any time of year!

The best way to accomplish creating a Cherry Blossom Wedding Theme is to include accents that feature these pink or white blooms throughout the wedding from beginning to end. For invitations, each envelope could be sealed with a Cherry Blossom label. For the wedding ceremony, items such as flower girl baskets, ring bearer pillows and even Unity Candles are readily available that embody the essence of Cherry Blossoms. Throughout the reception, elements such as the Wedding Guest Book, Place Cards, Table Numbers and Candles can be scattered throughout the reception venue so that wherever the guests happen to be, they will encounter this graceful flower. To put the final touch on the theme, guests should be sent home with a thank you gifts or wedding favors that showcase the Cherry Blossom such as sweet treats packaged in a Cherry Blossom Favor Box, or a practical set of pretty coasters that depict this graceful and dainty tree.

However you decide to incorporate Cherry Blossoms into your wedding, one this is certain; your wedding will be filled with symbols of love and affection to be felt amongst all of your guests, who will remember the elegance and beauty of your event for years to come!
