    I personally am not a fan of any hanging/cascading flowers whether it is in the bouquet or centerpieces. I don’t need to label them old fashioned, they just aren’t my taste.

    @linnylou_88:  PLEASE bring back cascading bouquets, they are lovely!

    I didn’t know which one to pick because they may be old fashioned but that doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing.

    While they aren’t my favorite, I have seen some really nice ones…and in France it is the MOST kind of popular bouquet (from what I’ve seen anyway). I actually had to specify to my florist here that I didn’t like the ‘french’ bouquet, and she said, oh, I know you must want one like something I did for a lady from england! Then she showed me the posie style ha. 

    Anyway, take heart that you’ll be a bit original, but at the same time they are very popular in some places.

    @DarthBetty:  These are a really lovely, modern take on the cascading bouquets.

    I don’t care if people think they’re old fashioned. It’s my wedding, and I like it! It won’t be a massive 80’s style cascade 😉 but still with a bit of trailing vine.

    I’ve asked for something like this:

    Quite old-fashioned – I believe they were pretty big during the Edwardian period – but no reason why you shouldn’t have one 🙂 I think they have a pretty dreamy look that many brides achieve well.

    The answer to your question is both.  They are old-fashioned, but they do seem to be making a comeback currently.

    I had a very, very slightly cascading bouquet… I think they can look lovely if done right. I love the ones DarthBetty posted, though they’re botb much konger cascades than I had.

    Not a fan!  I want people to see me, not my flowers!


    However, I’ve seen creative versions of the cascading bouquet!  Perfect example of this:  Princess Mette-Marit’s bouquet from her 2001 wedding!

    @linnylou_88:  They’re slightly old fashioned but if a single celebrity wedding used one, it would be back in vogue.  Do what you like and as long as it looks pretty, nobody is going to be saying”OMG did you see that cascading bouquet, so old fashioned!”  They will probably say it looks “vintage” which is considered a compliment.

    Some of them are really pretty but they remind me of my mom’s bouquet at my parents wedding in 1982… not for me.
