Apart from flowers, any bouquet can be decorated with ribbons, lace, beads, silk material and so on and so forth. Cascading bouquets are flowing bouquets with flowers cascading below the main portion of the design. The other names for the cascading bouquets are the teardrop bouquet and the waterfall bridal.

The bouquets are rounded at the top and fall to a point. There are many online galleries which show pictures of cascading bouquets, bridal bouquets, wedding flowers, floral decorations, reception decorations and so on and so forth. Some of the photos are provided by the bridal flower consultants and some of the photos are gracefully donated by the bride itself.

Without bouquets, no wedding is complete - be it a church wedding or a seaside wedding or any traditional wedding. Most of the Christian weddings use the classic bouquet measuring a sizable 26 - 36 '' long x 15'' across x 3'' deep. This white bouquet is trimmed in lace with fabric-covered candle. Flowers like rose, lilies, orchids, rosebuds, leather leaf fern, English Ivy and white gladioli are used to create a cascading wonder.
For weddings in the evenings, especially at nights, little bright colored bouquets are used. Brighter roses, other lilies, English Ivy, leather leaf fern, beads and ribbons are used for the same.

Hand-tied wedding bouquets are similar to the arm bouquets; the only difference is the presentation. Any flower can be used to hand-tied wedding bouquets but with a ribbon wrapped around the stem and a bow is compulsory.
