We skipped both (we only had a few single people of both genders) and no one missed them. We did an anniversary dance in place and we had a couple family friends who had been married 60 years, they gave us marriage advice at the end of the dance.
We’re skipping both. The garter toss just makes us uncomfortable and then I always felt awkward at the bouquet toss at weddings I’ve attended so we decided against them. Plus we’re trying to avoid being the center of attention as much as possible so the less things like that, the better, in our opinion!
We skipped both of them. Instead, we did an anniversary dance and I gave the toss bouquet to my husband’s grandma, as his grandparents had been married the longest. They gave us some marriage advice as well. We knew beforehand that they would be the longest married couple and it was a sweet way to include them in the day a bit more.
We are skipping both. The garter toss is gross and I didn’t want to get another bouquet or throw the one I am going to carry. Also none of our friends are single lol so we thought it was pointless honestly lol
I'm still indecisive about the bouquet toss, leaning more towards of keeping it and doing something really special with it. But I now for sure I'm not doing the garter toss. I always thought it was extremely weird having your husband go under your dress in front of your parents.
