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 Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays.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's cute, and it is totally voluntary. I also am fine with single men and single non-binary folks joining the catch crowd. Smiley smile

    Cancel. I personally find it kind of awkward, we will also not be doing the garter toss.

    Cancel! Not because I hate it but out consideration for my very few single guests that I refuse to put on the spot. I went to a Mormon wedding once where I was one of only two unmarried guests and it was ridiculously embarrassing. I don鈥檛. Want to do that to my single guests so we鈥檙e doing the anniversary toss and the couple married the longest will get the toss bouquet.

    Cancel! But I do like watching the awkward garter thing that鈥檚 supposed to happen later. Most of my guests will already be married or engaged anyway.

    Cancel. We won't have many single women attending so it's not really worth it.

    I don't think so. Most people attending are in relationships or married.
