5 Cascading Bouquets That Prove the '80s Trend Can Actually Look Chic


The classic cascading bouquet is making a comeback and (thankfully!) today's versions are nothing like the tightly-wired versions from the '80s that might initially come to mind. Florists these days are arranging flowy, hand-tied bouquets with lush blooms and pretty cascades and tendrils of fresh greenery, creating a vibe that's romantic and organic, instead of overly stiff and fussy. Check out five of our favorite takes on the trend.

White Bouquet with Fresh Greenery (above): An all-white bouquet with trails of ivy is utterly elegant and romantic.

Peach Bouquet with Texture: We love the unexpected asymmetrical look of this bouquet featuring Juliet garden roses and eucalyptus leaves.
