Where can you buy cherry blossoms for my Cherry Blossom wedding theme?
Try your local florist and nurseries first. March is when cherry blossoms bloom but they lose their petals fast, so your bouquet may thin out some as the hours go by. You might want to consider hydrangea. They have little petals, are sturdy and are available in many beautiful colors. If they’re unavailable in town, then try artificial. You can find beaded branches at Whiteaisle. Try Michaels or Joannes and see if they carry them in silk.
You can usually rent trees from a party rental house. You should ask around in your location.
