I am getting married in 3 months and wanted to do something fun and querky since thats the kind of couple we are.. See BOTH of us are “candice” she is CANDI and i go by Candice tho i have been referred to candy all my life. We play on this constantly and we are haveing a candy bar at the wedding and even the invitations are addressed as “the candies” wedding. I was wondering ifit is a dumb idea to do the tossing bouquet as a bouquet of dum dum lollipops that i found in the same color as our accent… Is this an ok idea.. Or just plain dum dum…lol. Thank you for any help and input.

is didn’t do the bouquet toss. so it’s ok to skip entirely.
but since you are both CANDI, what about a pinata?

We are just skipping it entirely.
I think a candy bar is awesome, and enough. I wouldn’t do the toss at all personally.

I would just be afraid of getting hit in the head by lollipops! They are hard, and being thrown!

The pinata idea sounds really fun!

I agree with the pinata idea! I also suggest avoiding the bouquet toss altogether. It’s antiquated. We did the “shoe game” where we were sitting back to back and we were asked questions and had to hold up the shoe that the question represented the best. We couldn’t see each other’s answers. For example “who is most stubborn?” “who is the messiest?” that kind of thing. It was a lot of fun!!

MissCtoMrsR : that was my thought too! A lollipop bouquet will have some weight to it!

If you want to do the toss, I’d stick with flowers. lollipops can have a bit of weight to them

If my experiences from the last few bouquet tosses I’ve witnessed hold true, the lollipops will break on impact when it falls to the ground as the women forced into the dance floor awkwardly shift away and only half heartedly reach for it. Skip it. No one will miss it.
I like the alternative of a piñata! Perhaps the bouquet of dum dum suckers can be the prize for whoever cracks it?

Can you throw the bouquet but open the floor to everyone, then whoever catches it get the bouquet of lollipops? Or if you’re not having flowers, can you find a teddy to fit with your theme, throw that and then give the bouquet of lollipops?

Agree a candy bouquet is too heavy for tossing if it’s made of lollipops. Maybe cotton candy instead, but I doubt anyone wants that when it’s old and wrapped up. Personally I think it’s nicer when the bouquet is just handed over to the longest married couple (usually grandparents) or someone else important rather than tossed anyway, though. Pinata idea that’s been floating around sounds fun, though!

ajillity81 : I LOVE this idea!
If not that skip it. We didn’t do a bouquet or a garter toss and no one seemed to miss it.

My DJ said he and his wife had a money toss. I think they folded bills into roses. That definitely got lots of participation.

I REALLY like the idea of a wedding pinata- of course as long as it fits in with the feel of your wedding! Might be a bit out of place at a super formal black tie affair. But I just googled and came up with these: https://www.theknot.com/content/12-wedding-pinatas-were-obsessed-with
Like prior bees, I think a bouquet of Dum Dums would be REALLY heavy. I would probably run away in fear of being hit by it, to be honest.
