When and where do cherry blossoms bloom?
As a Paris elopement planner, we know all the beautiful spots for cherry blossoms in town. Depending on the location and the weather, the first three weeks of April are usually the peak bloom for cherry blossoms in Paris. For example, the cherry trees standing alone in the streets usually bloom first, from the end of March. They give this city of love a little touch of pink in every corner. Then, it’s the turn of the cherry trees in those famous Jardins ( gardens) in Paris.
Fews short days later, a whole line of cherry blossoms in the most famous place, the side of the Trocadero with a splendid view of the Eiffel Tower will fully bloom too. These are the longest-lasting (through to the middle of April) in the city, perfect for couples to do an elopement ceremony and exchange their vows here. And finally, there will be an orchard of pink cherry blossom trees blooming in mid to late April in Parc de Sceaux – the heaven destination for picnic-holics.
