    Anniversary dance is the way to go

    Couple's dance

    Split the bouquet in 2 and give to FMIL and MOB

    Use the garter to shoot M&Ms at guests

    Forgo all of the awkwardness and skip these traditions

    we didn’t do a bouquet or garter toss. No one missed it 

    ETA: I don’t think it’s necessary to replace these things with something else unless it’s something you really want to do

    We’re skipping both and not replacing them with anything.

    We were going to do the Anniversary Dance but when we asked my husband’s grandparents about it (because we knew they were the longest married couple invited) they said they would rather not. So we ended up just skipping it. I don’t think anyone missed any of it.

    We just didn’t do either and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t missed. You can do whatever you want for your wedding!

    Not a big fan of either so we are skipping those and were skipping the shoving cake in each others face.

    We did the anniversary dance at my cousins wedding and it was cute for me because my grandparents, aunts and uncles and great aunts and uncles have all been married a long time and it was adorable to watch them. Except we realized afterward almost NONE of the grooms family had marriages anywhere close to as long as the brides side, all had divorced and remarried older in life so it ended up a bit awkward when it was only her side left for half the dance. So know your crowd if you do this!

    I dont know of many people who would miss a couples dance or toss if you just dont do it at all.
