    Cascade myself. However, round seems to be the favorite of brides now.

    I love both styles, but would like to do more cascade styles, I keep trying to sell one…..most brides here still stuck on round. So many beautiful selections! My favorite in the cascades, the one by Datura. Favorite round, between the red Bloomers Flowers and the white by Bliss in Bloom.

    I find round are still most popular with brides right now. But, I’m getting some orders for cascades which I personally love. I hope to see the cascade trend grow. Of these I really love the modern purple vandas by Vickys Flowers, and the more traditional lush teardrop cascade just below that by Tantawan Bloom.

    For my recent wedding, I chose a round bouquet because a cascade bouquet would have competed too much with my dress – an organza ballgown with a front split showing tulle underlay and lined with organza roses. Before I chose my dress, I wanted a cascade bouquet because they are so much more dramatic. My sister hated the idea and told me that it would look too dated. I think her exact words were, “Gross, it’s not the 80’s.” I disagree and think that a cascade bouquet is the perfect addition to a simple dress.

    I love non round bouquets – but some of the cascades might be too dramatic – I have seen lots of “mini cascade” with just a few trailing elements (not done in bouquet holders) and also very cool teardrop shaped bouquets that use arcing tulips or callas at the bottom to make kind of a peak and break up the round shape – I love both of those shapes! (And I love round bouquets, and cascades ; )

    I think all depends on the dress and style of the bride. The cascade one by Datura is most amazing, I think perfect example of a modern cascade – a little bit of drama yet nothing stiff! But a round one like the one done by April Flowers will always make me happy! So like Kate, gotta love both! Round is all I see here as well so can’t wait till a bride asks for a mini or casual cascade.

    I really like cascade but I prefer quite slim ones, long but slim. And of course it depends on the brides heigt and dress. If you are too short it can look a bit silly with a cascade, so it really depends on the bride!
