The biggest portion of our wedding party and guests are married. In fact I think they might all be. That means that when we toss the bouquet and the garter there would be 0 ppl in the single crowd. However, I want people to participate in this with me, and that means there is a good chance it’s gonna end up with a married individual.
I’m thinking I’ll buy two extra gifts as a reward for the lucky man and woman who catch the toss. Does this seem like a desperate reach to hang on to an old tradition or is it a cute idea?

Nope, and lemme say… as a single girl who’s caught a bouquet and had to have an ex-BF (who caught the garter) do the whole “game”…. I would have much preferred the gift. 😉

Good idea…I’m doing something similar since I won’t have very many single people in the crowd and because I know how much I’ve hated to be the single person waiting to catch the bouquet.
Instead, I’m opening the “bouquet” and garter toss to all girls and boys whether they are single or not. The girls will catch this bouquet made out of 50 – $1 bills:
and the boys will catch the garter with a $50 bill bow tie:
