I think the only people who really care about “trends in bridal flowers” are florists who do weddings, and maybe Martha Stewart. The rest of us only actually see bridal bouquets once in a while – who cares what’s trendy or in-style? How do you even tell?

Besides, ideally, you will get married exactly once. If you like that shape of bouquet, go for it, this is your one chance to have it! Call it “retro” or “vintage” if you want.

It’s just a trend thing, I’m sure they’ll be back in at some point.

I personally think they maybe outdated. They were huge hit in the 80’s…

I personally do think that they are outdated. When I see them it reminds me of the 70’s and 80’s.

However, my BFF had a cascading bouquet in her wedding in 2010 and it was beautiful. Not what I would have chosen for myself but it was still beautiful and she loved it, which is all that matters!

I don’t think they’re out of style right now, just not IN style, if that makes sense. Kind of like how ballgowns aren’t out of style (lots of people still pick them, and I don’t see them going away), but the current “trendy” silhouette is mermaid/trumpet.

It all depends on how you do it, whether it looks current or hopelessly dated. I recommend against cascading ivy and red roses….

Last time I was in a wedding my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet was a lot to hold, so even though I like the teardrop look I opted for something else because with the heavy front (teardrop part) I thought it’d make my hand hurt after holding it for too long.

I think it is also a ‘country’ thing… When I lived in the UK I saw brides all the time choose this design, now that I live in the US I rarely see this design over here..

I can’t comment really I am not having a bouquet for mine!!!

Personally not a big fan, esp if it cascades really long.

That said, Kate Middleton’s bouquet is sort of an updated teardrop? It looks chic & classic at the same time.

I think you should do what you want regardless of the trend:)

I love cascading bouquets, I think they are more elegant, that being said I think many of the trends are less elegant and more simple/modern.

People do say they are outdated, but I love them (and I have very modern taste). I insisted my florist do a teardrop bouquet for me and she did an amazing job! It is made from Phalaenopsis which is a type of orchid.
