    If done correctly I think cascading bouquets can be gorgeous! I had one in my wedding and LOVED the look of it. Our theme was Elegant Country Spring and our colors were blue and white with pops of yellow. I don’t have my professional pictures back yet (we get them May 11th) but here are some pictures of mine that my guests took. These pictures definitely do not do it justice.  

     

     

     

     

    My bouquet had freesia, blue hydrangeas, ranunculus, ivory roses, daisies, billy balls, tulips, blue thistle, and bear grass. I will be sure to post our professional pictures in two weeks!

    Go for it! Styles come and go; plus, I think it will go great with your vintage theme.

    This is my bouquet from my first wedding.  It’s sort of a cascade.  It’s been in storage for over 15 years, so forgive that it’s smushed, and I don’t know what the brown spots on the bottom flower are.  Gosh, I forgot how pretty it was!  Lasted much longer than the ex-husband. LOL It’s made out of white bread clay.  I was searching for that online earlier last week and couldn’t find any for sale. I had it made in Juarez, Mexico. Hmm…maybe Etsy is calling my name.

    Mine was a cross between posy and cascade

    @linnylou_88:  The inspiration pic you posted is lovely!  So is Wellington Bride‘s bouquet.  But I must admit that when I saw the title of this thread, I immediately thought of Mariah Carey’s bouquet from her first marriage to Tommy Mottola.

    *shudder*

    The thing I don’t like about cascading bouquets is all of the greenery that seems so popular in them. That being said, I am having a slight cascade as an homage to my mom’s wedding bouquet. I stressed to my florist that I did not want much greenery and that I only wanted a SLIGHT cascade. I’m kind of curious how it will turn out. I’m very trusting of my florist and I know I’ll love it no matter what.

    @Wellington Bride:  Okay, take back what I’ve said about greenery, that is BEAUTIFUL! It compliments your dress so well.

    @LittleRiver:  Thank you! 

    This thread is desperately lacking this cascading boquet. Enough said.

    I think they are nice if done right, but some of them dont look too well. My friend had a cascading bouquet in her wedding, and it looked like the arrangement of flowers you see on a casket at a funeral…It wasnt right somehow.

    Not ecactly my taste, but not knocking the girls who had nice ones!
