Colorful, cascading bouquets were huge in the ‘80s and just like shoulder pads, glitzy sequins and white pumps—they’re back. While carnations were the norm back in the day, modern brides are going with plusher flower choices, adding a twist to this comeback.
“We recently had a wedding where the bride requested a cascading bouquet. It was made out of beautiful wild flowers, which was perfect for creating a flowing organic design,” says Becky Cardenas of The Wilding Collective.
When it comes to color, Cardenas says, “brides are slowly moving away from blush and using more mauve tones, or mixing the two, which makes a beautiful combination.” She also notes a growing popularity in bouquets featuring less greenery, loose romantic blooms and soft textures. —Erin Garnett
