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?

Back to the beginning: Which wedding traditions are you ditching?

    Hi Sydni! Smiley smile Ditching all of the tosses is something I can agree with, too. Are there any traditions you are set on keeping?

    Ditching it! As of right now there will only be 4 single ladies invited and that could change. also my bouquet will be rented and don't wanna damage it

    No garter toss either, FH says he hates them and i dont care


    We are gonna play a short version of the shoe game instead while our guests enjoy dessert

    I’m deciding if I want to toss my bouquet or do a lock box and key,(I will give my single ladies a key,mixed up with the real one and whom ever unlocks the lockbox will receive the bouquet.) Happy Planning 🍷

    I just don’t feel like it! Also, I want to have fun and I feel like there is so much to do at a reception (both of us are in Frat/sorority) so there are ENOUGH interruptions because we will need to sing. And besides the bridal party entrances, we have TWO entrances for ourselves because we have a change of clothes. TEWWW MUCH! I just want to dance.

    We are doing it because my FH wants to. I am fine with ditching this and the garter toss though.
