Bouquet styles like everything else in Wedding Attire comes and goes…

Cascades were big in the 1900s… not so much since the 1990s… when there was first a move to the Arm Sheaf / Presentation Bouquet and then to the now very commonly seen Tied or Posey Bouquets.

Cacades aren’t a “foreign concept” so most Florists should be able to make them.

I had a Cascade for my first Wedding (circa 1980) and it definitely makes a statement (more so than the Hand-Tied Bouquet from my recent Wedding)

It also tends to be harder to preserve… if that is something you might be thinking about doing

One of the niceities tho is they tended to incorporate a lot more greenery… and it wasn’t uncommon for Brides to have a bit of LIVE Vine or Herb in them, that they took out and planted in their Marital Home (ie Ivy, Rosemary etc)

@carlypaige:  I had a cascading bouquet made of real flowers. It was a little heavy but it was STUNNING! I can’t remember the exact price but I know it was under $175.

@carlypaige:  I didn’t have one but I really have grown to love some of the more modern looking ones….especially with orchids!

I really think cascading orchid bouquets are just stunning!

Mine was semi cascading.  I paid about $45 and used our local grocery store.  I really, really lucked out as the main florist there has been doing flowers for over 15 years.  I originally thought that I’d have a tied bouquet since that’s what’s typical (that I’ve seen in other’s pictures lately) but she recommended this style for the orchids since they’d have a water source throughout the wedding.  You can’t see it, but it looks like it’s sitting in an ice cream cone which is what I’m holding on to.
