Cascading Orchid Wedding Bouquets
Cascading wedding bouquets are not that fashionable and voguish as they used to be a few years ago. However, brides who are planning a more sophisticated and extravagant wedding will surely find this style to be more appropriate.
As long as you use more eye-catchy and inspiring types of flowers even this “dated” type of arrangement can look gorgeous and one of a kind. For this discussion we’ve chosen the orchid type of flower. Cascading orchid wedding bouquets have been in trend for many years and it seems that they are still popular especially among brides who are planning a wedding on the beach.
Among all the exotic flowers available for destination weddings – such as star gazer lilies, geraniums, gingers, heliconias or plumerias, the orchids remain the most romantic and feminine ones chosen by modern brides. Orchids are considered the second perfect type of flowers for a wedding after the roses, although in many cases they are used precisely as modern alternatives to the classy traditional rose. These sculpted-like types of tropical flowers come in various shapes, sizes, colors or assortments. Choosing the right type of orchid always depends on the formality of the wedding, on the season and theme of the event you’re planning.
For example, if the wedding has a more cheerful character or a vibrant theme, we suggest you to choose a green cymbidium orchid wedding bouquet. On the other hand, a more romantic, elegant and feminine wedding can make the perfect host for superb purple or pink orchid wedding flower arrangements. The orchids can also be found in stunning shades of brown, blue, violet, mauve, red or yellow. For antique inspired weddings or for a classy innocent pure bride perhaps a white orchid cascading wedding bouquet can make the ideal choice! The cascading style is considered traditional and more suitable for conservative dramatic weddings, although it can be chosen by any bride who is planning a casual wedding on a beach or island in a more luxurious and fancy way.
The shape or the design of the bouquet should always be chosen according to the bride’s silhouette, height or figure. For example, in our case, a cascading orchid wedding bouquet won’t look very appropriate in the arms of a petite short framed bride. In general, elaborated and complex bouquets like the cascading or the crescent style are not recommended for brides with a small stature. If you don’t want your beautiful wedding dress to be eclipsed by the amplitude and the extravaganza of a too pompous wedding bouquet you should not opt for this type of design. On the other hand, tall brides with a slender silhouette may not look at their best carrying a small undersized type of flower arrangement.1
