I love the draped style bouquet. My own bouquet had a few stems of orchids cascading out of a tighter, colorful bouquet so I am partial to that design!

I like the tigher, rounded one. But I don’t like cascading bouquets at all.

@minted:  If you like cascading, why not do a tight bouquet with a few stems loose? It’s hard to explain, but here is my bouquet. You could do something like this but with all white orchids in the tight part…

@minted:  Both are lovely and you can’t go wrong….there was a bee a while back that got married with an orchid bouquet and it was gorgeous. Gosh that is gonna bug me….hopefully I’ll figure out who it was. Hers was cascading and it was stunning!

For some reason, I think orchids are the one flower that look so pretty cascading. I just love the way this looks with the orchids cascading. Do you want all orchids? I love this one below!

Orchids sort of naturally cascade with how they grow, so I think it looks natural and very pretty like that

@minted:  Are you using those exact orchids or another kind? I wanted orchids in my bouquet and started a thread about it a long while ago here are some examples in this thread:

As others have said orchids look lovely cascading or drapping so I would go that route.  But it also sort of depends on the type of orchid you are getting and what your overal vision is for the bouquets fullness. The BM’s had white hydrangeas the men had lavender bouts and we had some rose corsages.

@minted:  This google image search has a lot I think that fit that bill:

When searching for an all orchid bouquet which is what I was going to do orginally,  I found there are few examples on pinterest or on here so I did google image searches and that worked a lot better.  Orchids don’t seem to be too popular on the bee even though they are fairly popular at weddings.  It may be due to their cost or the fact that most look good as cascading bouquets but who knows really lol.

I started a thread about that too out of couriosity most common here is roses so far: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/what-kind-of-flowers-are-you-usingdid-you-use-for-your-wedding#axzz2c9kvoz9e
