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 Some brides are so over this outdated tradition, and don't want to drag out all their single friends onto the dance floor while "single ladies" plays.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 have girl friends who are happily single. And tbh, while I'm happy to be in one, relationships arent everything nor are they for everyone. It just seems kinda outdated for me.

    I'm undecided. At first I wanted to do one but now I'm not so sure. Still up in the air.

    If you do this you almost have to do a garter toss too, they go hand in hand. I prefer to Cancel

    I don't think we will do this, most of the women at the wedding are family and married.

    Definitely cancelling this as well at the garter toss!! It鈥檚 so awkward and outdated and no one misses it when the bride doesn鈥檛 do it!

    Cancel, those that are single or didn't bring their date just get pushed out there when they don't want to be.

    I'm making my own bouquet and would love to keep it for after the wedding, there's also not going to be many single gals at my wedding either so it's pointless.

    Cancel! Not enough single ladies at oooorrr wedding. Plus, I want to keep my bouquet abs didn't think it was important enough to spend more money on one to toss

    Cancel. I feel like the majority of people won't be single and for those that are I imagine it's probably pretty awkward.

    Cancel. Not putting my single (unmarried) ladies or their gents in the spotlight.

    Cancel. It's all become so predictable now. I've seen too many of the blindfold the guy that catches the garter and when he thinks he's putting it on a girl, they switch it out for a guy. SO overdone. I also think it stops the partying aspect- which no one wants.
