To toss the bouquet, or not to toss? 馃拹 That is the divisive question! Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays. Other brides can't imagine it feeling like a wedding without this classic and fun custom!

Which side of the bouquet debate are you on? Keep or cancel?

    Keep it! I will NOT be using "all the single ladies" as the song though, can't stand the song or the singer. Going with "girls just wanna have fun" by Cyndi Lauper

    I would love to keep, but cancelling. Over 75% of my guests are not single.

    This is a really good idea because I don鈥檛 want to give up my bouquet and was thinking of buying a toss bouquet. What sort of prize will you have?

    We haven't decided yet. Probably a couple of gift cards though we tossed around the thought of some cute plushies or something.

    We are keeping it because our crowd expects it. We have lots of singles and I caught the bouquet at my cousins wedding and then met my FH a few months later.

    Cancel. I will be giving my single girls flowers from a bouquet and praying over them. I don't want to single anyone out and I'm not the party type anyway. I would rather make it something more personal and intimate.

    Cancel! I hated it when I ever attended weddings and I still hate it now. I also think the Garter toss is tacky. IMO.

    I'm on the fence about the bouquet toss, but the garter toss is definitely out. I'm a little on the conservative side and the whole thing makes me cringe.

    Uhhh, well I think I would only have like 5 people up there, so (after finding it on WW) I might see what FH thinks about doing the anniversary dance.

    Cancel. There are other things I would rather do, and it is awkward.
