Isn’t a cascade thought of as a traditional bouquet?

Personally, I like the hand-tied or shield bouquets.

I did not have a preference until I saw this:

This image is my inspiration for my bouquet especially since it has my wedding colors 🙂

I had a cascading.  Kinda wish I went with traditional in hindsight.

@glamachica45: Kate’s was considered a ‘shield.’ I love those. They have some shape without being obnoxiously large, like (God bless her) Diana’s bouquet.

I always think of cascading bouquets as being “old fashioned”. 

@msfuturea: However, this one is a very beautiful modern take on the style, love it!

Like @Showers, I always thought they were a bit dated too. Lots of brides still have them these days, so I must be wrong! 🙂

We did neither.  Instead, we each had an arm bouquet.  I carried mine on my right arm, and NotFroofy carried hers on her left, as we walked down the aisle holding hands.

I like both styles, as long as they are proportionate to the person carrying them. Some are just way too large, I think. Worse than that is how many people hold them, so the tops of their dresses are hidden….bellybutton level, people! The cascading ones seem to almost force them to be held at the right level.

I like traditional but I admit I loved Kate’s. Perhaps it’s because it was small and fit her frame. I’ve seen so many brides with massive cascading flowers that I didn’t go with that kind for my wedding. 

I think the flowers should fit the girl. I’m petite so I would never hold anything I couldn’t put in a regular/smaller vase.

I like standard bouquets.  Cascades remind me of the 80s.  I now they will come back, but probably for brides who were born after the 80s.  🙂

I LOVE cascading bouquets…I’m not a frilly girly girl, but there is just something about them that gets me everytime.  I WILL have a cascading bouquet with grapvines that nearly reach the ground and I couldn’t be any more excited.

My personal philosophy is if a bride is going to carry flowers (because when else in life do you get to do this?) I’m going to carry F-L-O-W-E-R-S!!!

I’m going to post pics of mine when my mother and I get started on it.  We have the flowers, just need to put them together.  Its a  mix of greenery and grape vine, deep purple and dusty blue.  A couple feathers thrown in for balance.  Yeah…its over the top, but I can’t wait!

I like both… mine is actually going to be a mix of hand tied wild gathered flower mix and cascading… I’m not sure what it’ll turn out like but I imagine close to this with a few stock flowers hanging downward with the amaranthus.

My florist said she’s matching it to my theme and my dress… my theme (like they were all gathered from a magical garden and hand tied together) and wide and cascading a little to match my big dress. It will be all white and green flowers.
