At our friends wedding last summer she aimed her bouquet at me, I know it, but a bridesmaid caught it.

And he aimed the garter at my Fiance, who DID catch it.

 

I say as long as you’re not legally married you’re eligible.

I guess I wouldn’t do it because I think it would be kind of weird. You already know you’re getting married so I would save the excitment for some other waiting girl.

I wouldn’t! I think once you’re engaged, you’re officially off the market.

Go for it!  You are not married and you actually WANT to catch it!  

Every wedding I have been to no one WANTS to catch the bouquet.  I made everyone come out for mine, married or not (I actually wanted to forgo the whole thing but I was outvoted.)  Every body leaped away from it and it landed of the floor.  People backed away from it like it was radioactive and my little niece ran across the dance floor to go get it.  

I would have loved to see anyone TRY to catch it and you are likely to be the next one to get married.

Give the “single” ladies a shot at it! I caught one and two months later I got engaged….

You are already getting married….give the other girls something to be excited about.

I was actually ‘forced’ to go out and try to catch the bouquet even though I was engaged!  It is just all in fun.  If you want to, do it! 

Since most of the ladies that will be attending my wedding are already married, I am thinking of just having the DJ say, “any ladies looking for a good time tonight” or something of the like.

She might do someting like that too!

Regardless, I doubt anyone would frown upon you going out there!

then again i am having a really tiny wedding, so it will all just be fun and games and not a serious matter where anyone will have to worry about “looking weird”

Sorry, but no, you are already engaged.  I think it is weird for you to go out there.  I have never seen an engaged girl out there.  Give those other ladies a chance.  You are obviously going to be a married women.  As far as going out there to catch it to use at your wedding…..I’m pretty sure “throw away” bouquets aren’t that expensive!

If you’re not married you can participate.  Totally disagree that if you’re engaged you can’t, you can say if you have a b/f you can’t either.  I would totally participate.

Almost everyone at our wedding was engaged or married so if all the engaged girls didn’t go for the bouquet it would no of had much impact. I say go for it!

I don’t see why not, you are technically not married yet. Go for it!
