Everyone is married, so what's a creative or alternative way to do a bouquet toss?


I'm open to all sorts of fun ideas + song.

    We did an anniversary dance instead. The DJ invites all married couples out onto the dance floor and starts calling out lengths of time (starts with like 1 hour to get the newlyweds off, then goes to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, etc. years) until only 1 couple is left. That couple gets the bouquet and shares some wisdom about being married so long. For us, my husband's grandparents were the longest married couple, so it was a really special moment to honor their love and commitment.

    We are also doing an anniversary dance in lieu of a bouquet toss.

    The majority of our guests were married/in a committed relationship. When we wanted to do the bouquet/garter toss, we announced for all to come up (regardless of status). Whoever caught it won scratch tickets. My oldest son (who’s in a committed relationship) caught the garter & won the tickets. He one $150!

    We aren’t doing the bouquet/garter, no cake cutting, no speeches, no bridal party intros. What we are doing is a Soul Train dance line.

    I love this idea!


    While you can always skip the bouquet toss, a fun idea I have read about couples who toss stuffed animals if they are dog/cat owners as the next to adopt.

    Don’t laugh but I bought extra bouquets for my single friends and will be handing them to them like “B@@ch it’s you next!” I am just not interested in tossing a bouquet.

    Ha! Love the soul train line! We are doing that as we walk down the aisle after the ceremony. We are not doing any of the traditional stuff whatsoever. We are just having a party/dance type of reception. Eat drink dance and be merry!
