    You can’t choose multiple options on the poll, but we didn’t have a garter toss, bouquet toss, first dance, toasts… we also didn’t have any spotlight dances and had opposite sex attendants.

    We are not having a reception, just dinner, so basically anything reception/dance-party-related. So no first dance, parent dances, garter toss, bouquet toss, or cake-cutting. We also don’t have a bridal party.

    We’re having an intimate wedding of only 16 guests!

    Can you change this poll so that you can select multiple options?

    We are not going to have: bouquet toss, garter toss, first dance, organized dances of any kid (mother/son, father/daughter), toasts at the reception, and a wedding party.

    we are skipping garter toss completely and instead of bouquet toss, we are doing an anniversary dance and giving the bouquet to the last couple standing (couple together the longest)

    We’re not planning on having a bouquet toss, a gater toss or a white dress. We’re also not planning on having secondary sponsors which are more traditional within Filipino Catholic weddings.

    Not doing toasts unless someone jumps up and does one without discussing it with us!

    We skipped the garter toss, father/daughter-mother/son dance, something old/new/borrowed/blue.

    I hate the way the garter toss looks. I didn’t want my husband under my dress in front of everyone.

    I didn’t do the parents dance because… well the real truth was because we couldn’t be bothered. It was not a priority for us.

    The something old/new/borrowed/blue thing… also could not be bothered.

    Sorry, I sound like a kinda lazy bride.

    You need to allow the poll to choose multiple options. We are skipping garter/bouquet toss and first dances.

    We skipped all of those except the ring exchange and the toasts. Our wedding was fairly non-traditional.

    @MoonlitMagnolia:  I skipped all of those (plus all special dances) except I wore a white dress, we exchanged rings and we did toasts (our fathers and then DH and I). We just didn’t care about the other stuff.

    Like others said, your poll is not the best for getting an accurate representation…

    We skipped the garter toss, bouquet toss, and wedding party.

    We walked each other down the aisle. During the reception, we did not do parent dances or the garter or bouquet toss.
