     I tossed a fake one. I didn’t want my pretty bouquet to be ruined. lol I wanted to save the flowers and put them in a memory box.

    good question i have been wondering the same thing.  i would opt to say toss a silk fake one.

    my question is this then:  i am getting my BMs silk toss bouquets to carry down the aisle (i have a real bouquet because it is provided free by the resort in Jamaica I am getting married at).  rather than buying another toss bouquet, can i just toss one of theirs??  or is that rude somehow?

    My florist made me a toss bouquet with real flowers, but unfortunately, there was a mixup at our ceremony and the toss bouquet ended up being used as the “flowers for Mary.”  Oops.

    @dynamic_duo:  My bridesmaids had real flower bouqets, and I ended up tossing one of theirs.  Nobody minded (they weren’t going to save them).  I thought I would get my mom to preserve my bouquet, but she forgot about it.  Guess I could have used my bouquet anyway!

    I tossed my real one because I missed that detail. I almost took out a chandlier with it. The girl that caught it gave it  back, it was a bit mangled, but when I came home from my honeymoon they had died. I wasn’t really attached to my bouquet, they were just flowers in my world.

    Id do a fake one if you want to try and keep them 🙂

    We had real…but I left it at the church and we totally forget about the bouquet toss, LOL. Thankfully it was free!

    @Mrs.tobe: We did a different kind of toss. I had a silk boquet and filled it with scratch and lottery tickets…that way when i did the toss ALL women came up to try and get “lucky” that night…so we obviously did a silk boquet 🙂

    I had a separate real toss bouquet.  It was just kind of made with the leftover flowers

    You’d probably be better off with a cheapie grocery store bouquet than trying to make one out of silk price wise.
