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? 💐...

Are you saying "I do" to this tradition or ditching it? 💐

    Hi Concetta! Smiley smile Are there any traditions you feel particular attached to? Or plan to "keep" instead of "ditch"?

    We won't have it at our 1st reception but maybe at our 2nd back home with more people.

    Hi Jessica! Are you having a smaller and/or destination wedding with your 1st reception? And a larger reception back home upon your return? Smiley smile

    Ditching it! Not a lot of single ladies and don't want to put a spotlight on the ones that are there. Not to mention, I want to be sentimental and see about preserving my bouquet! (Wonder how long that desire will last...LOL)

    We ditched it. We only had a couple single gals at the wedding and I thought that would be rude for them.

    Yes we are the having an intimate DW only about 20 guests if everyone comes. Immediate family for DW and the 2nd reception would be more informal for everyone who I didn't invite for the DW a picnic bbq probably nothing to fancy.

    There weren't very many single ladies at mine, but I kept it because there was a gorgeous balcony I got to throw it off of. It we skipped the part where you make the mald and female catchers dance or anything of the like.

    Nope. The majority of single people at our wedding are men- 17 single men to be exact. And I'm not into paying for a bouquet to toss or another garter. Ditching that too!
