    i’m undecided about the bouquet toss. i’ll have plenty of single friends there, but i also like the anniversary dance. i might just flip a coin for this decision. i’m also curious if anyone else has other suggestions beside the anniversary dance.

    I don’t like it, but FI really wants both because he’s got all these ideas about things that belong at a wedding.  I’ve tried to compromise with throwing money, but he thinks that’s silly too >.< We’ll see.

    Not planning to have a bouquet toss since our wedding is rather small. Plus it might be somewhat awkward since many of the invited guests don’t really know each other well.

    We will be doing two different bouquet tosses… one for married women (including myself) and one for single ladies. For the married women one, after tossing the bouquet, my DJ is going to announce that they will be the next one to get pregnant. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope my grandma catches the bouquet.

    We’re doing a bouquet and football toss. We don’t want a garter cause it’s a conservative church wedding and seriously it just seems creepy. And we’re announcing before both tosses that they are NOT just for singles. Whoever catches each will get a gift card of some sort (probably B&BW for the ladies, and Dick’s Sporting Goods for the guys). We didn’t want to nix the whole concept, but don’t like making the very few single folks feel awkward. And I know I’d be much more enthusiastic about a bouqet toss if I was gonna get an actual prize!

    I will if the guests ask. that’s the plan anyway. Garter toss is a def. no FI doesn’t like the idea…finds it…degrading, go figure.

    Instead of tossing to the unmarrieds or doing the anniversary dance, you could present it to the person who traveled the most distance or to an honored member of the family (your grandmother, for example).

    We are not doing the bouquet toss. Looking at our guest list, we just don’t have very many singles. And nobody really likes being put on the spot anyway. I think my FI would like to do the garter toss, but probably just so he can look under my dress in public and it’s acceptable!

    We’re tossing the bouquet and the garter, BUT we are asking for all the ‘pretty ladies’ to come up. We aren’t requiring the guy who catches the garter to put it on the girl, esp. since it is possible one of my FI younger sister will catch it.

    I was also considering giving it to my mom, but I want to throw it to my sister… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Only 2 close girlfriends are single so there will be a flower with a note from me waiting for them at the table.

    I asked that SAME question on a different website, Here are a few suggestions which I REALLY LIKED:

    (but first what I had said: Most single females HATE the bouquet toss, so I was looking for an alternative.  Some people gave the recommendation of giving it to the longest married couple, but I wanted to something for ALL the ladies – like ALL the males can get in the garter toss)

    1:  Invite all of the ladies onto the dance floor, single or married, and have them think of a wish in their heads. Then whoever catches the bouqet will have their wish come true. Far-fetched but fun anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

    2: Toss several "mini" bouquets and each one was tied with a ribbon that had a fortune or something written on it.
