Your not the only one, I love it too. I’ve been to a few weddings where they skipped it and i was disappointed. Its your wedding do want to want. Just make sure you have a few single ladies at your reception.

I love it three!!! I talked to a few girls already to see if they would be willing to stand up for the bouquet toss so others would follow and I have a good 6 people saying they’d be diving for that thing even if they got engaged before then! (were also thinking of including married friends in this so if they catch the bouquet they will be the next to have a baby) tehe.

I also love the bouqet toss. At my sister’s wedding this past summer, I was seriously upset when some random GUY ran on to the floor and snatched the bouqet!!! That sucker was mine! I’m pretty lucky, bcause my group of (single) friends love to catch the compete for teh bouquet. With past weddings I been to, I find it really helps when the M.C. and the music set a fun upbeat mood to the whole situation. It’s less intimidating that way.

@CMSnails: I would say the way to make it less awkward is to not look around for any single girls that don’t come up for it and yell for them to come up there, or physically force them up there. Seems to happen at every wedding I go to, and the bride always thinks it’s hilarious, but for the girl it’s happening to it’s really embarassing for them – if they don’t want to participate, don’t force it.

I caught the bouquet at 3 weddings last year, so I felt like it was my duty as a bride to pay it forward to my single ladies! I tossed it, but didn’t make it a big deal. It was later in the night, and the DJ just announced it and I threw it. A lot of people didn’t even know it happened!

I’m a fan of tradition, so we did the bouquet and garter tosses.

I love it, as well! Although a few months ago I participated in it for the last time–at my wedding 🙂  It will be weird not being a part of it in weddings to come! But in a good way 🙂

I think the only single ladies at our reception will be my daughter (15) FI’s daughter (13) and our flower girl (6) so I don’t know if we will do it or not. I am leaning to not.

I really like it. I’ve only ever participated in it once (and I caught it!) and it was really fun. I can see why some people don’t like it, but it’s not like a requirement to try and catch it.
