    I am skipping both of those tosses as well! There's nothing wrong with skipping them, and you don't need to replace them with anything unless you want to.

    We skipped it. No one will miss it if you don’t do it/them.
    At this point don’t stress about the things you didn’t cross off your list and are going to be a pain to do. Chances are they aren’t big things anyway. Focus on finishing and handling the big important things (vendors paid, checklist of items to bring with you, pick up dress, veil, and grooms attire, put tips in envelopes, get your nails done, etc).
    Good luck with everything and congrats!

    We skipped too. Personally, I find it outdated and tacky. Nobody will miss it!

    For Covid, and other reasons, my daughter skipped both as well as the guest book for her wedding.

    We are skipping it. Aside from not wanting to waste our dancing time for this, the thought of my whole family watching as my husband takes off my garter is super cringey and embarrassing !

    Many weddings skip it and don't replace them with anything

    I think I've been to more weddings withOUT than with - I've seen one... MAYBE two garter tosses, I think, and maybe 3 bouquets.

    We skipped both the bouquet and garter toss because at my 20 person minimony, the only single woman was one of my sisters and the only single gentlemen were our 5 and 13 year old nephews. Lol!! No one missed it or thought anything of it.

    You’re probably right ... the 13 year old would have avoided it like the plague and the 5 year old would have acres like he won the lottery. Lol!!

    We are skipping the bouquet and garter toss, both of us didn't like the idea of it so we are trying to decide on something else to do instead.

    Skipping them both largely due to covid. The idea of people grouping together to catch a flying item isn’t smart these days and I also have no intentions of my fiancé going under my dress to get my garter in front of everyone. Too uncomfortable to even envision 🙈. We’re thinking of doing a toss bouquet giveaway to another couple.
