Chances are, you’ll purchase more flowers for your wedding than for any other occasion in your life.
Among other factors, the choice of your wedding bouquet depends a great deal on the style of your gown. Season is another important consideration. Like many brides, you may decide to choose your bouquet based upon the time of year. Bouquets come in these principal types:
Cascade: The cascade is the most traditional and formal style of bridal bouquet. It’s a waterfall-like “spill” of blooms and greenery which is anchored in a hand-held base. As the name implies, it resembles a cascade or waterfall with the flowers flowing downward. Traditional wedding flowers used in the cascade bouquet are white and include roses, stephanotis, white or calla lilies, and mingled with greenery. The bouquet has the appearance of being loose and free flowing.
