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? 💐...

    Pressed reply before finishing my comment lol. We will be ditching this tradition. I hated it when I was single and every wedding I’ve been to the MC had to like force ladies onto the floor haha

    I skipped it! Kind of. Instead of tossing it I gave it to my husbands Grandmother. She loved it.

    Ditching it and doing a generation dance instead, having all the married couple come dance w/us and the DJ will have couples sit done based on number of years married, longest married couple will get toss bouquet.

    Ditching it. There will be very very few single friends in attendance & the flower girl is the only child invited so I would just feel super awkward during it. I’d feel awkward even if a ton of people participated though. Idk why. That’s too much “eyes all on me” for the day. Haha.

    Hahaha that's so true, it definitely takes some coaxing from the DJ or MC to get the single ladies to participate... Smiley xd

    Yes! ❤️ Dad’s walking me down the aisle (but I might have Mom come too - idk, I can’t tell if that’s weird), I’m doing some borrowed/blue/etc thing, parent dances, BM/MOH/dad toasts, first Dance, cake cutting. Pretty much all just not the tosses. Lol.

    Not weird at all, I love this idea honestly! Smiley heart

    Those are all great traditions to include, Jordynn! "Everything but the tosses" sounds perfect to me! Smiley kiss
