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 Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays.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

    Cancel - I don't understand the concept of singling out my already single wedding guests

    Cancel! We don't have very many single guests coming to our wedding so it doesn't make sense to do one.

    Keep. Although I keep seeing people get engaged during this part of the reception and if someone proposes at my wedding I won鈥檛 be a happy camper.

    Cancel. All but the 2 or 3 younger girls and my 2 older aunts are all married so it would be pointless anyway.

    We plan do to the anniversary dance instead and give out a small bouquet

    I havent decided on this yet... but most of our guests are already married! I don't think its a super important part of a wedding though...

    Cancel! We are going to do a song instead for all married couples and whoever has been married the longest will keep my bouquet! So sweet and special to celebrate the marriages in our families

    Keeping, it's always been a fun thing to see and I know there will be plenty of single ladies attending.

    Cancel, most of my young lady guests aren't single, so I dont want to make it extra awkward on those who are

    Cancel. Honestly, I enjoyed my time as a single woman and I believe everyone needs to enjoy it. I cannot properly express how much I resent the bouquet toss. It implies that single women should yearn for marriage. Singleness is a blessing and we need to honor it. Dramatic, I know but I feel very strongly about this issue.

    Cancel - not only do we only have 2 single (with boyfriends) ladies at our wedding. I think it鈥檚 a silly tradition. And I plan on preserving my bouquet - as long as it survives the flight home.

    Cancel! For years I hated being called out for being single at weddings. I think I will have about 5 single ladies there, not going to put them through it... and kind of want to keep the beautiful bouquet in my hotel room the rest of the trip, lol.
