Are you ditching the bouquet toss?

Tossing the bouquet to the single ladies at your reception is a tradition that has been cooling off in recent years, but some people can’t image a wedding without the bouquet toss! Will the bride be throwing the bouquet on your wedding day? Are you saying "I do" to this tradition or ditching it? 💐...

Thank you, next (tradition): Are you ditching the garter toss?

    We are going to do the bouquet toss but only because almost all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen are either engaged or talking about getting engaged. they are the only single women that will be there and they all want me to do it lol it should be a real battel royal over the bouquet lol

    We'll be tossing mine as well. We also invite everyone to join relationship, married, whatever, not just single ladies. I actually have never been to a wedding where only single girls did the bouquet toss!

    We are doing a modified garter toss though, I am not comfortable with FH going under my dress and getting a garter in front of our grandparents (lol) so instead we found a thing on pinterest of couples tossing a football instead of a garter.

    Haha! That is good reasoning not to do one then, Lex, makes perfect sense! I also was never really a fan either!

    We are and have tiny nods to football at our reception so this will be a perfect way to incorporate more into it!

    Definitely ditching it. I hated it when I was single and won’t put my remaining single friends through that.

    Ditching it! I don't like attention and we don't have a lot of single women attending our wedding so it was a fairly easy thing to eliminate.

    That's great thinking, Kaitlyn! Smiley heart On the topic of your bouquet though, what flowers will be included in yours?

    I'm having a mix of Sahara roses, patience roses, ranunculus, mini calla, asiatic lilies, hypericum berries, salal leaf, Italian ruscus, and some seeded eucalyptus!

    Nope! this is one i'll be keeping! I just won't be using the Beyoncee' song "single ladies" like pretty much every other bride out there. I detest her and that song. i'm going with "girls just wanna have fun" by Cyndi Lauper!!

    Ditching this. It just doesn't resonate for me.
