Cascading Bouquets: The Go-to Style
Cascade bouquets are something we get requested quite often through Bridal Bouquet Builder’s “Suggest a Flower” feature. It’s obvious that brides want this bouquet style in 2020 and we can’t wait until we bring it to you in the app. In the meantime, let’s talk about cascade bouquets. What are they and how do you build a bouquet in this style?
A cascade bouquet is similar in shape to a round bouquet, except that the flowers on the bottom end of the bouquet drape or cascade down toward the floor. Cascade bouquets can be small and tight or large and messy, just like the other bouquet types we’ve explored in this blog. In fact, your cascade can be as long as you want it to be (although I wouldn’t suggest letting your flowers drag on the floor!).
Cascade bouquets have been around since 1910, according to bridalmusings.com, but reached popularity in the 20s and 30s. Princess Diana brought the cascade style back in the 1980s with her gorgeous bouquet. This style of bouquet is experiencing a small renaissance now as brides everywhere recognize its elegance and versatility.
