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.

Jewel Tones: Lush, burgundy peonies combined with textural elements like proteas, succulents, and greenery create a dramatic and bold bouquet.

Peaches and Cream: The addition of greenery and vines adds a romantic, secret-garden vibe to this peaches-and-cream arrangement.
