Hello all, I figured it was time to start posting!
SO and I were recently at a wedding and I happily scurried out onto the dance floor (haha) while the bouquet toss occurred. And had I jumped a little higher (I didn’t want to make it look like I was really trying..) I might have caught it!
SO and I have been dating just over 2.5 years (consistently). We started dating just after college and it ended a quick 6 months later when he took a job across country. Lucky me, the love of my life got promoted and came back after 10 long months. And here we are. I knew he was the one all along 🙂
We’ve been living together for just over 2 years (I know, I know) and as time marches on, so does the talk of engagement!
We looked at rings for the first time last week and I have a hopefully waiting period that should end before winter begins!
So happy to have found this site and look forward to getting to know all of you!

My cousin married about a year ago, when s/o and I had been together for about 2 years. I caught the bouquet. The moment I caught it, you could see the look of absolute horror on his face.
Only 2 or 3 people made passing, joking comments to him about it, and it annoyed the crap out of him. To be honest with you, it really hurt me that he had that kind of reaction after two years together.
Otherwise, I’ve never caught the bouquet.

@MrsStrawberry24: At my wedding, one of FI’s GM caught the garter and his longtime GF dang near caught the bouquet – as in semi-fought with my personal attendant and ended up with a handful of petals. She was engaged before we got back from our honeymoon.
Of course, we both actually knew he had bought a ring a few weeks prior 🙂 So I was aiming for her 🙂
