    Mine was round.  I tend to like the look better, they tend to look cleaner or something (just my opinion) plus my dress had a lot going on so I didn’t need more flowers going down the front.

    i chose round. when i was little i always wanted a cascade, but now i don’t care much for them. when i met with my florist they mentioned that because i’m short (5′), i should stay away from bouquets with longer stems and bouquets that have a long cascade.

    Funny story, today I went to get a quote on flowers and the consultant told be that a bouquet souldn’t be bigger than your head….I just thought it was a funny rule of thumb.  By the way I am going with a round bouquet!!

    I’m going with round. I’m not a fan of cascading – just too much going on.

    Cascading bouquets scream “80s” to me.  They should be tucked away in a vault along with shoulder pads, Big Hair and Boy George.  This vault can be visited about once per year for nostalgia purposes.  Only you can determine if this annual visit should coincide with your wedding day!

    @MissLibby:  LOL, your comment made me think of this bouquet I saw on a cover recently:

    This is definitely bigger than her head AND bigger than my centerpieces.

     

    I vote round, btw.

    Round. One of the funnier moments of our planning process was when my mom asked our florist “What about the cascading look?” and he flat-out told her, “No. It’s over.”

    Cascading bouquets are actually starting to come back into style, and especially for a destination wedding (is it a beach wedding?) I think they can be really pretty.  Here is an example of a more updated cascade arrangement (could be easily made into a bouquet):

    @ElbieKay:  Gee thanks! I think that comment was a bit rude. Some of us on the Bee had cascading bouquets. There are alot of current options for flowers that aren’t just round. That’s just what’s more popular now. There is nothing wrong with either. Both round and cascading are beautiful.
