What was your original idea?  I tried to do something to decorate my aisle with tall cherry blossom branches but we decided to go in a different direction.  If you are into tall centerpieces you could steal my idea:

Buy cherry blossom branches from Joann’s, maybe cut them down just a little (unless you want 3-4′ tall centerpieces), and stand them up in vases, weighed down with glass stones.  You could also add a mirror underneath to make it pop more, as well as some tea lights or votives.

I am not sure what you already have in mind but here are some options:

I found this one that I like, but I don’t know if it’s anything like your original idea that you dislike now. Anyway, I thought it was nice and different. A low centerpiece with cherry blossoms and other pink flowers (peonies and ranunculus, I think)

I’m thinking about doing Cherry Blossom centerpieces too! Here are some pics I’ve been saving:

I found the pic online.. but I think it’s just a Cherry Blossom stem & it’s proabably wired, so if you just curl the wire to make it spiral like that? I’ve only been able to find Cherry Blossoms at Wal-Mart so far. Hobby lobby has some but they are tiny. JoAnne’s didn’t have any that I could find. & we don’t have a Michaels in my town.

Here is a website that I saved that sells them..I havent decided where I’m going to buy them if I do. http://www.save-on-crafts.com/peacblosspra.html?cmp=froogle&kw=peacblosspra

My florist is submerging cherry blossom branches into long, cylindrical vases.  Hope this helps?

curly willow is really easy to bend and easy to submerge – and it’s real – not synthetic made in china junk (sorry -mini vent at the faux flower girls – just my opinion).

cherry blossoms are beautiful when they are real. If you don’t like those, try forsythia or quince blossoms for dramatic effects – also pussy willow is fantastic but all of these can be a bit pricey. For a May wedding on the east coast – you could add white lilac if you are looking for a more flowy design vs architectural/stems.
