No. But I wouldn’t do one regardless. They annoy me.

Britterbee:  Eeeeek. That question just made me cringe. There’s your answer…. I would skip those  “traditions” altogether. 

But hey… It’s your day. Do what you would like!

I’m not doing one regardless. But only a handful of people would make it extra off putting to me.

From a guest point of view, I think it would be EVEN worse if it was just me and two or three other single ladies. 😛

Britterbee:  nope, didn’t want to do it and didn’t do it….honestly not one person even missed it or asked about it. We had a DW with 40 people.

Britterbee:  Are these 4-5 potential participants as in “there are 4 or 5 unmarried women/men at the event” or 4-5 potential participants as in “people who have voluntarily expressed genuine interest in doing this”?

As what many people would consider an older single woman (I’m in my 30s), I dread the bouquet toss and all the near-guaranteed humiliation that accompanies (and it’s never from the couple–but there is always some other guest who just has to say things that make all the older women feel like garbage) it with the passion of a thousand and one burning suns.  So, I am a potential participant in the loosest sense, but not in a real sense.  If you are unsure as to whether or not people would want to do a toss, perhaps some other sort of contest (lots of threads about traditional tosses also include some alternative suggestsions) that would be more accessible to all your guests would be in order.

I wasnt going to do either, but happy i did. I thought they were cheesy and pointless… but maybe my friends and family made it more fun then they usually are. We chose foxy lady for our garter toss, and my hubby surprise me with the Wayne’s world foxy lady, garth perfomance. I almost died laughing!!

No, I wouldn’t.  I had a small wedding, skipped these traditions and didn’t miss it!

Britterbee:  We didnt do the bouquet or garter toss at our wedding – and no one missed it.  We did an anniversary dance instead – had all the married couples on the floor and the DJ said “if youve been married X or less amount of years please leave the dance floor” and kept going until just one couple was left (DHs grandparents) – and we gave them my bouquet.
