Things to consider when choosing a cascade style bouquet.

  • Design of your dress – this style of bouquet looks beautiful with almost all dress designs, however if you have a lot of detail, beading or something like a colour panel down the front skirt of the wedding dress you may want to assess if the bouquet will hide the design whilst walking down the isle and on photographs.
  • The size of the bouquet – This can be basically up to you! But you will need to contemplate how the bouquet will look with the size of your dress, the correct size of bouquet should not detract attention away from your wedding dresses, nor should it look insignificant if you have a dress with a larger fuller skirt.
