Cherry blossoms have been showing up in wedding decor for years, for obvious reasons. Here are a few of my favorite applications of the cherry blossom theme:

Love the look of cherry blossom branches, but can't afford the real thing? Check out Martha's tutorial on making your own here. *Note: No disrespect to Martha, but I find this project works better with crepe paper like this than with tissue paper.
