    I have heard of giving the bouquet to the longest married couple at the wedding. I think that's what we will be doing.

    This is an old tradition, but I quite enjoy it. I am getting an extra bouquet made up specifically to toss.

    My bouquet comes with a decoy for the toss so yes, this is a must for me. It's just fun 馃槉

    None here. I will be saving my bouquet. I'd like to store it or have it dried and put in a Shadow box maybe.

    There will only be a few single woman at our wedding and I never liked this tradition I always felt singled out. So I wouldn鈥檛 feel comfortable doing that to them. I was thinking of giving it to the couple that has been married the longest.

    I love this but not doing this at my wedding, there will be a very small amount of single ladies that I just don't think this would be as much fun.

    I had to make a decision last week when I put in my order for bouquets and boutonnieres, and I figures I might as well order a toss bouquet too. I think there's enough single and unmarried women attending we'll be able to do a toss.

    I debated the bouquet toss for a bit but like Casey, only 5 woman who came to the wedding were single/not engaged. 3 of them were my cousins and the other 2 were in the wedding party. so we ended up skipping it. It was one of those things no one noticed we didn't do until the next day when my MOH texted me about it lol.

    I haven't decided. I've always thought it was a fun idea since I was a kid and one of my bridesmaids has already expressed that she is going to catch the bouquet lol (she's very competitive and we're pretty sure her partner is going to be proposing soon anyway)

    But we're not doing a garter toss, so it feels kind of odd to do one without the other

    Not going to do it. Most of the guests are married and I don't want to single anyone out. I hated that at other weddings, especially since I had no desire to get married HA!
