    Well, yes they are old fashioned, but aren’t you going for a vintage look?  I chose a cascading look because I wanted to evoke the late 20s – early 40s period!  Old fashioned/Vintage is in right now, no?

    @linnylou_88:  I’m not a fan of them. But if you like it, go for it.

    @Julia_SD:   these are all great examples of fresh and modern cascading bouquets.  No one said it has to be the 80s version.

    I think it can be done in a modern way, per some of the pics posted here!

    @linnylou_88:  I love them. The first one you show has a modern feel becuase the cascading plants are airy and sparse. It’s not your mom’s cascade.

    @aloviecreation:  agreed about the forced vs natural.

    There are mainy trailing plants, (vines and creepers) that look great as the cascading part of a bouquet.

    @LittleRiver:  I love that old fashioned bouquet. To me, it’s completely classic: white stephonotis and trailing ivy. Classic. And you CAN have this look as though you just picked it, lightly gathered with a ribbon, you just need the naturally trailing plant materials.

    @Miss-Petunia:  I was nearly going to get this bouquet from Interflora. I would love to see pics when you elope 🙂

    Here’s the problem with a poll like this – if something is on a leading edge then most people are not going to think it’s in.  

    I think you’re on the right track.  A deconstructed looking trailing bouquet is coming back.  Tight bouquets have been the deal for too long now.

    My bouquwt wasn’t EXACTLY what I wanted, but I loved it anyway… I wanted a teardrop shape, but mine wound up with a bit of a wild bottom (instead of narrowing toward the bottom into a sort of point).

    I got a lot of compliments on it, but it was VERY heavy!! During the 45 minute photo shoot before the ceremony (we did a first look and some family photos beforehand, so that we could be around for cocktail hour!), my hand was actually shaking from holding it for so long… I felt bad for my Maid/Matron of Honor who had to hold it AND her own bouquet!

    I think they’re old fashioned in a good way. Who doesn’t love some romantic vintage style?!

    I think cascading looks a whole lot better than a perfect ‘ball’ of roses or whatever flower is used. It looks so oddly shaped and unatural to me. But that’s just imo!
