Nigerian Wedding Trends: The Rise of Cascading Floral Bridal Bouquet

Wedding bouquets are the ultimate expression of femininity for the bride. The perfect opportunity to express her own unique style through passionate vibrant colours and an array of floral scents and smells.

Today, we are pleased to highlight the cascading bouquet, a gorgeous floral trend, for wedding flowers with impact among brides this year!.

The cascading bouquets were originally referred to as shower bouquets. Also known as a teardrop bouquet or trail bouquet. These replaced the fashion of posies around the time of 1910. This style became exaggerated by 1920, with much larger bouquets, so large they almost concealed the bride. They reached their peak from 1920 – 1930’s until WWII.

The Cascading bouquet, which is the most formal and most traditional of bouquets, is designed to spill gracefully over the bride’s hands as it flows downward for a sophisticated and stylized look, almost any flower can be used in this style.

The bouquet is roundish at the top but pointy at the bottom. The traditional shower bouquet is known as the large multi-trail bouquet, subsequently renamed the princess in honour of the late Princess Diana and her impressive bridal bouquet. The modern smaller version is called the teardrop bouquet or trail bouquet.
