Yes, I did catch the bouquet and am the next one to get married. Yay for me!
I was just wondering if anyone else has the same story. And if so, what did you do with the bouquet? I kept mine and was wondering if I should give it back to the bride I caught it from as a Thank you (she will be at my wedding). I didn’t preserve it though. I did hang it upside down and dried it.

One of my notoriously single not-wanting-to-get-married friends caught the bouquet. It was hilarious! We have a nice picture of us making funny faces in regards to it =]

The one and only time I’ve caught the bouquet was almost 8 years ago at my friends wedding. And I’ve dated a few guys since. So nope!

I caught the bouquet at my friend’s wedding a couple days before FI bought the ring, but he didn’t propose until three months later. Two of our friends have gotten married since then and I have another two or three weddings before mine. At least I caught it. 🙂

When one of my bridesmaids got married, I was a bridesmaid at her wedding. There was another bridesmaid who was waiting for a proposal. Everyoen thought I was the next to get married, but no one knew that I was in the process of breaking up with my ex fiancee (I was waiting until after the wedding to say anything). Anyway the bride, myself, and another bridesmaid all planned it so that the waiting bridesmaid would catch it. So when my friend threw the bouquet, I CAUGHT IT! I DIDN’T WANT IT!!! So I kind of volleyed it out of my hands into the waiting bridesmaids hands! It made a really funny video! Anyway, I am pleased to say that SHE WAS the next to get married!!! We were all so happy for her!

I was a BM for my friend’s wedding las September and I caught the bouquet (with a little help from the bride, I think hehe) FI proposed 6 mts later and I am actually the next to get married! When it’s my turn, I don’t think I’ll be aiming the bouquet at anyone in particular, I am just hoping to be able to get it in the right general direction 🙂

At my future cousins-in-law’s wedding last year she aimed the bouquet directly at me but the little girl in front of me snagged it instead. Then her new husband aimed the garter at my fiance (then boyfriend) but another cousin snagged it by reflex without thinking about it. It was so funny to see the realization on his face when he realized that he caught it without meaning to and it was too late to fumble it! So to answer the question, no, but it wasn’t for lack of trying on the bride and groom’s part!

I caught the bouquet at one wedding and I was determined never to catch one again. The wedding I attended after that one, the bouquet bounced off my torso and I refused to reach out and grab it. The wedding after that, the bouquet went right for me and I sidestepped it while a screeching woman to my right shoved people to the ground to dive for it. This was all over two years ago, so though I wasn’t the next to get married, I am getting married after all! Lol!
