Bouquet Toss? Keep or Cancel?

Lynnie, on 16/September/2019 at 09:50 Posted in Wedding reception

To toss the bouquet, or not to toss? 馃拹 That is the divisive question! Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays. Other brides can't imagine it feeling like a wedding without this classic and fun custom!

Which side of the bouquet debate are you on? Keep or cancel?

    Cancel - It's just outdated at this point,

    Cancel I don't like this tradition

    Cancel. I don't think many of our guests are single, so it would be awkward.

    Keep. But we won't be playing "Single Ladies"!

    I made all my bouquets and just made a second, smaller one to throw for the bouquet toss so that I can keep mine.

    But don't let your DJ push you around! If you don't wanna do it, don't do it!

    Cancel and keep. I want to cancel it, I think its tacky personally. But my dj keeps trying to talk me into it because its fun and traditional but if i do i will 100% get a bouquet at the dollarstore to throw.

    Cancel. We're inviting only two single people; my sister and my FH's cousin once removed. Not likely to be any fun lol!

    Keep! I think this will be a lot of fun!

    Keep - I'm going to make a tossing bouquet. And I'm not gonna do that BS thing where you pretend to toss it but you really just get your single bridesmaids to block everyone and then toss it on the floor in front of them.

    Probably cancel, but haven鈥檛 decided officially!

    I won鈥檛 be tossing the bouquet, but I will have a small version made and give it to the couple who has been married the longest. This will be my grandparents. I always hated being singled out at weddings for the bouquet toss, and some of the weddings I attended it got vicious!

    Keep. This could change, but both me and my FH agree absolutely NO garter toss. There aren't many single ladies, but, at a wedding I went to, the put a new twist on the tradition I liked: If a married wanted to try and caught it, it just meant luck for the next year of their relationship. I thought it was sweet and a nice inclusive twist to keep things fun.

    Definitely creating a toss bouquet. Given I don't have the best luck at throwing things, I don't want to to accidentally knock someone out with a large bouquet (and I want to keep my bouquet! Smiley xd)

    Cancel. I want to keep my bouquet for a shadowbox.
