Hello.  My fiance and I are planning a sakura (cherry blossom) theme wedding for 08-08-08.  I am planning on making the invitations, decorations, a set of angel wings and a masqurade style mask along with the massively insane dress that I want.  Encouragement would be lovely. =^.^=  After about 2 weeks of poking them... I have finally figured out how to do the invitations.  Now I just need to get on it.  I plan to post pics here when I finish one... or maybe even two.

I have noticed that cherry blossoms are a popular theme... which makes sense.  They are sooooooo beautiful!  But, if they are such a common interest... why can't you find rubber stamps or stencils in craft stores...Huh

They are indeed pretty. Someone, I think Mar, had cherry blossoms as part of her theme as well. Maybe you could check out her threads. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182744.msg1903146#msg1903146 That's just her main wedding post; she's got others. I don't think she stamped any of the blossoms though. It looks like she hand painted them, but at least you could get some more ideas or inspiration.
As far as WHY you can't seem to find rubber stamps in craft stores, I have no idea. Have you tried both Michaels and Hobby Lobby? Walmart also has a small stamp section; you might be able to find something there. If all else fails, you should try online stores. I did a google search and the first thing I found was a neat stamp that had a branch stamp on one side and then the actual blossoms on another side of the same stamp. http://www.impressrubberstamps.com/miva/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=E5007-Cherry_blossom_set&Category_Code= Hopefully that link works.

Hope it helps!

Congratulations!
I used cherry blossoms as my inspiration for our wedding.
I know I sent someone (Laneybug?) a bunch of cherry blossom links, so if you read this, maybe pass along that e-mail. Here's a bunch of links I found helpful during my planning. I'll try to get a bunch of the specifically cherry blossom related photos up and link them for you, when I have a few minutes.

I was frustrated with the lack of cherry blossom stamps in stores. I bought all of mine online:

Ridiculously expensive, but gorgeous stencil. We ended up handpainting cherry blossoms on the gallery where we had our reception's walls:

I used this lovely Snow & Graham paper to cover dollar store matchbooks that I threw on the tables to light candles (they also have great notecards!):
