Wonderful Waterfall

Last week we talked about our favorite hand tied, or round bouquets. This week, it's all about the cascade bridal bouquet. By definition a cascade is "a heavy, uncontrolled outpouring; something thought to resemble a waterfall." These bouquets do just that - they waterfall out from the hand as you hold them. Cascade bridal bouquets were popular in the 80's and 90's and were characterized by very long shapes, often filled with greenery and ivy. Some may think of these styles and consider cascade bouquets to be "dated," but they are truly classic and timeless. Modern style cascade bouquets are beautiful, often smaller, more teardrop in shape and can compliment any gown.  
 
Below are some of our favorites cascade bouquets we've created for our brides. We love using orchids to get that dripping, waterfall effect and let these stems be the standout bloom of our bouquets.
A true modern take on a classic cascade, we love this all white orchid stunner. We used phaleonopsis orchids in a slight teardrop which creates a great simple statement.
Similarly, this all pink bouquet keeps things simple and classic with a bright pop from the phaleonpsis and vanda orchids. Both bouquets are a true, cascade with no frills!
Sometimes, the classic shape of the cascade calls for a little punch, as with this two toned bouquet which mixes both the pink vandas and the white phaleonopsis orchids.
For this cascade we used the classic white phaleonopsis orchids with just a touch of tropical greens for dimension and pop. This was a great compliment to the tropical style of the wedding without being over the top.
To create more of a garden style cascade bouquet we love mixing orchid blooms with lush peonies and full garden roses. This particular bouquet was perfect for a southern photoshoot amongst the horses, complimenting soft pinks with the stark whites.
Similarly, this small teardrop cascade fits in beautifully with the garden style bridesmaids bouquets and features just a touch of tropical pop in the looped thai leaves and personalized lace bow.
Offering the best of both worlds, we mixed bright pink garden roses and ruscus foliage with the the tropical phaleonopsis orchids for this beautiful beach wedding bridal bouquet.
Last but not least we love this truly modern take of the cascade bouquet. We created this pageant/cascade style bouquet with bright purple vanda orchids, purple phaleonopsis orchids, thai leaves, tropical greens and ruscus. It created a fun and vibrant collection that paired perfectly with the customized fascinator the bride wore with her veil!
No matter your bridal style, a cascade bouquet could be for you! They are classic and feminine and really showcase the blooms in a graceful manner.
