In the early decades of the 20th century big was beautiful when it came to bridal bouquets. As a statement of a brides position in society, a more full bouquet was viewed as the most opulent of bouquets. Generally they were long and very full cascades and regardless of the brides height the fashions of the day overruled which saw petite little brides carrying overflowing arms full of blooms. The modern florist will often advise a more petite bride to select a more petite bouquet and with that in mind some of the more grand vintage inspired cascade bouquets we are sharing for inspiration would certainly be best suited to a taller or larger bride and would certainly suit a floor length gown best (and even better a gown with a train!).
Vintage bouquets in the 20s and 30s weren’t all necessarily flowers, but instead used a substantial amount of greenery among flowers and this can also assist in making a grand bouquet a little more affordable.
