I’ve seen pictures online of lottery ticket bouquets.  They were super cool and it seems like it might be perfect for doing a toss for single and married ladies alike

I did the lottery ticket thing. however, I had fake flowers for my toss (used the real “toss bouquet” from the florist for something else). I tied a bunch if scratch offs to it and all the ladies 18+ where invited to do it. 

We did the same thing for the garter toss.

You could still get flowers from someone other than your florist, couldn’t you?  Even if it’s just you going to the farmers market or whole foods, any grocer with a floral department…  Wrap the stems and toss that sucker.  It doesn’t have to look perfect and professionally done since it will likely take a beating anyway.  I’ve also gone to weddings where the toss bouquet was misplaced and they just substituted one of the bridesmaid bouquets.

DanceAwayDarling:  As two other people mention, lottery ticket bouquets are fun! I actually did one at my wedding. I bought $20 worth of tickets and put it together like a bouquet with ribbon wrapped stems, like my actual bouquet. It was something unique and fun, which our wedding was all about. Also, it got a LOT of people to participate. I totally recommend it. It was a huge hit.

We had a toss bouquet, but whoever caught it won a gift card to the movies.  Everyone seemed to like it.

That’s silly that the florist will not add a throwing bouquet.  I suggest the day before going to the Lablaws or Metro and buying hand cut flowers, all you need is a ribbon and wire to tie them together. $20 and you can get a nice set that should last a day or two.

We had a science-chic theme and tossed gigantic plush microbes to all the guys and then another for all the girls (single, married, whatever) and it was a huge hit! Here’s one where the bride tosses a stuffed fireflower from Mario:

For my best friend’s wedding I pulled a single rose out of my bouquet for her to toss 🙂 Didn’t ruin my bouquet at all, and it seemed more special just throwing a single flower!

you can totally have a friend make a quick bouquet the day of. I’m also going to have everyone present at the bouquet/garter toss. Instead of dancing with the winner of the opposing toss, they’ll dance with my fiancé & myself.
