i think they’re beautiful, but personally think it might be better suited for taller brides…. i’m just 4’11” myself and can’t imagine having one, however much i like it, because i think it would swamp me!

I think the ones that are done really well can be really romantic and pretty. I’ve seen some DIY ones that didn’t fall in that category. I personally like the ones with the flowers or leaves cascading down and not the mossy fuzzy plants.

i’m not a huge fan of cascade bouquets, but i think the last one is really pretty.

and i agree with peonia about them not being a good choice for shorties. i’m short and my florist said i should stay away from bouquets with long stems and long cascades. but if you have the height, then rock that cascading bouquet ๐Ÿ™‚

i think cascades look prettier against simple dresses that don’t have a lot going on, so you might want to take that into consideration too.

I like the first and last one. If you go that route make sure you get some pics of you without the flowers, my sister had a cascading bouquet and her dress is obstructed in a lot of the pictures.

I think those are beautiful. I think it’s all in the way that it’s done. They used to be done a lot and then I guess they became very dated looking and brides gravitated toward other bouquet shapes. Now I like that it is coming back with a modern twist. A friend of mine got married recently and I saw a picutre of her cascading bouquet and it was lovely.

I like the first and the last, but not the middle ones. It looks like they are coming alive

I think they’re gorgeous. Love the pics above. To me a bouquet would look “90’s”-ish with cheesy red roses.

@MeiFrancis:  I agree. The first and last are beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚ The middle ones would be great with stiffer stocks instead of danglers(??? They look flacid to me). I had wanted to make a cascading bouquet for my wedding but the stocks I ordered got held up at customs. ๐Ÿ™

@raisedonrobbery:  I like cascading bouquets that include orchids (like the first and last pictures you posted).  I love orchids and am hoping to include them in my bouquet and/or centerpieces somehow.  I don’t think I’d be able to do a cascading bouquet myself, though, because, as a previous poster mentioned, they might not work for a shorter bride.  I’m only 5’1″ so I’ll probably be carrying a smaller bouquet (I haven’t worked out the details yet) … I definitely don’t want the focus to be on my bouquet!

I really only like the middle ones. The front and back photos (2nd one) is the best of those you posted. Love the amaranthus!!! I used amaranthus too, it adds so much without overtaking the flowers.

The last one is nice.. But I think they are so late 80’s/90’s.. So not my style.. But if you love it then go for it!  Don’t let anyone sway your feelings and what your look should be ๐Ÿ™‚
