@CaptainSpaulding: aww I dont think they’re outdated!  Even Kate had a semi cascading boquet when she married Wills.

@MrsGibby2Bee: I think there are certain things only the people in weddingland know, lol. I’ve learned all types of generalizations like that on various things since being here. But regardless of popular opinion, cascade bouquets are the ones I’m drawn to the most simply because I think they’re the prettiest Laughing 

Actually I think I like them more because I can’t have one ๐Ÿ™ My bouquet is included in my wedding package, & I wanted something like the below pics for my beach wedding, but they are too far out of my budget allotment for me to stomach & I wouldn’t be any good at making it myself Undecided

I love the cascade bouquets, too.  I was curious about the base part.  Are they hand tied or placed in a holder with oasis?  The ones in the pictures, i mean…

@CaptainSpaulding: LOL!  I know!!!  My Fiance loves the red, so who am I to argue with him? Besides, my alter-ego is an assassin, so it kinda reminds me of drops of blood (yeah, yeah, gory and weird) so it’s kinda appropriate! LOL!

@CaptainSpaulding: I will!!!  I’m kinda tempted to play around with making mini cascading bouquets out of fabric for the girls…. I have PLENTY of white fabric…. and some really awesome orange and black jaquard-type fabric (the kind that gives you a headache if you stare at it too long…).

My bouquet was supposed to look more like #3 or #4 of tarheelgrad98’s post/Kate Middleton-ish.  It didn’t turn out exactly as I had planned.  Because the front of my dress was really plain, I wanted a cascade.  However, my bouquet was way too big and really looked rather 80s-ish

I have to add an update. My silk flowers arrived and…well, they just were not pretty. I hate to say it, because the ladies from Angela’s Accents were so nice, but my bouquet just was not going to work. We were already working with a fresh florist for our ceremony & reception flowers, so I told them I needed a bouquet too, and I sent my inspiration pictures and said I loved the organic feel of cascades and didn’t like the “round mass of flowers” look that is so common right now in bouquets, but she replied that the pictures I sent looked dated and they’d come up with something for me.

That might send some people into a panic, but this was two weeks before my wedding and I knew the florist was savvier than I am about flowers, so I said, “Ok then!” and left it entirely up to them. Thank goodness I did, because I was outrageously in love with my bouquet when I saw it on my wedding day!! It was not a traditional cascade, but it had some cascading elements. For those of you looking for a compromise between the true cascade and something a little more “current”, I think it’s a great fit!

Here it is:
