Cascading Bridal Bouquet


Cascade bridal bouquets are making a comeback in a big way. But this is not your Mother’s bridal bouquet.

Cascading bouquets can be made with branches, ribbons and charms, greenery and of course flowers.  Do not be afraid to use color and texture to make a statement and make this traditional look reflect you and your personality.

HI! The more traditionally shaped cascades are in holders and the more modern and funky bouquets are hand tied. I have done cascades with dendrobiums forming the cascade in both methods. If I am doing a hand tied cascade with the orchids I will use Oasis glue to attach the orchids. The orchids will hold pretty well. Just make sure to spray them down well with Crowning Glory.
