The ‘80s are a decade whose trends are often best left in the past; it was a time when everything was big — big sleeves, big hair, big veils. But it introduced one trend that we are more than happy to make an exception for: cascading bouquets. Long, luscious, and, yes, big, these decadent floral arrangements are making a comeback among today’s brides, and it’s easy to see why. They achieve a look of effortless beauty, from chic elegance to bohemian wild. They can be as large and lush as you want or feature a few trailing vines for a subtle effect. Take a look at these stunners for some inspiration.
