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 Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays.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?

    I hated doing this when single and did not force my guests to do it either. CANCEL

    Keeping -- with a twist! We will be throwing it together to all singles, and nixing the garter.

    Cancel. I don't care for the tradition and it'd look worse considering the small number of available women at my reception.

    Cancel! Not a fan, I鈥檝e always hated the tussle on the floor, and what single girl wants to be paraded in front of a bunch of strangers?

    Cancel. I'm so over this. The last wedding I went to they completely destroyed the toss bouquet fighting over it and I just wasn't into that.

    Keep it I think, if FH doesn't want to dot he garter toss then we will nix the bouquet toss. But I hope we do both. Smiley smile

    Cancel. There won't be many single guests plus it's kind of awkward.

    Keep! It's a cute tradition that I think makes for a fun time to get the ladies up

    Cancel- not doing either. Awkward and I want to keep my expensive bouquet (I think) or I might give it to someone special as someone else suggested.

    I guess it depends on your crowd and how old most people are.

    Keeping it since it's expected and my MOH would probably kill me if I didn't have it.

    I wouldn't have minded doing a bouquet toss, but with the timelines that our venues dictated, I feel there just won't be time. Also, neither of us are into the garter toss at all.

    Working on this.

    We're among the last to be married in our group, so I'm thinking less of a toss, and more of a presentation to the next engaged couple? (Brought it up to said couple the other day, asked if that would make the uncomfortable. It would not, so the idea is growing on me.)
