This is what I did for my sister’s wedding. I made a bouquet for her and then a smaller version of it for the bouquet toss. It was much better than her solution….using one of the BMs bouquets =)

I had 2 bouquets. I asked our florist to make a smaller one for the toss.

I’m doing 2 bouquets. My florist is also doing a smaller, less expensive, “throw away” bouquet for the toss. Think it only cost $30 (vs. the $150 bridal bouquet).

@Naiexoxo:  I agree with the othe brides, do a smaller version of your ramo(bouquet) or if you have damas get one of theres.  I know that I will need 3 because one of them will be for the Virgen 1 for the toss and 1 for my keepsake

Yep, I had a second smaller bouquet with less expensive flowers in it for the toss.  I also had the buttons from my mother’s wedding dress sewn onto the stem of my bouquet, so I would have hated for them to go missing, since we planned to put them back.

I’m got a smaller bouquet to throw because I ordered a fake bouquet off Esty. When I throw the smaller bouquet I’m going to cut the ribbon that holds it together so that it will fly in many different pieces. Does that sounds cool, or just weird?

I might have 3 bouquets for my wedding!

I am going to have my main bouquet (which I will use to do the main entrance), and then during the church I am going to have a second bouquet (more like a floral arrangement) that I am going to give to La Virgen de Guadalupe, my FH and I will walk up to her statue or shrine and we will pray for a little and give her a beautiful floral bouquet.

And I am still debating if I should I have a third bouquet, which will be a silk bouquet, similar to my main (natural) bouquet (This I can use for when we exit the church, but I am not sure yet).  Then a much smaller bouquet (similar to my silk and main bouquet) will be thrown at the reception.

@lupita89:That is what I did I wanted a real flower one but my lovely suegra was like no you have to get a traditional wedding bouquet. We got my huge beautiful traditional paste flower one that I walked in with.. Them in mass my madrina gave me a small red rose one to give to la virgen.. Then I bought a smaller paste flower similar to my big one to throw.. And i got to keep my big one maybe if my princess want she can use it for her quincenera if she is good..

Definetly two. One for La Virgen de Guadalupe (and during the ceremony) and one to throw at the reception 🙂 I think I want both to be natural.

I vote 2 boquets its the traditional thing to do. Not to mention your bouquet is going to be beautiful why would you want to toss that one lol. We are definately having two. and this is the equivalant to the garter toss thing and a garter for your husband or whatever if you do that.
