My Fiance and I are not planning on doing the Garter and Bouquet toss, there are maybe 5 to 6 single people at our wedding (its a small wedding of 80 people)
just wondering if anyone else is not doing this too? OR should we do it with there only being 5 people, I don’t want to single out those ladies and gents.

Nope we didn’t throw the bouquet or garter since there weren’t that many single people.

We did not do it. Nobody missed it or asked about it – don’t sweat it!

We did neither. We only had three or four people (not including minors) who were single!

This thought actually just came up today. I have no idea what to do.

I’m giving my bouquet to FI’s grandma, I think it will make her feel appreciated. I like the idea of picking a special friend/relative or someone who doesn’t get flowers very often and giving it to them.

We are skipping it.
@bananejaune: That’s a really great idea.

We don’t plan on doing either. Last wedding I went to, the single gals weren’t all that happy about having to go out there so I didn’t want to do that to anyone else.

We aren’t planning on doing either. It’s one of the things I hated at other weddings (I hated being singled out) and I don’t like the idea of my new husband going up my dress infront of everyone at our wedding either… So it was an easy decision… Fiance could have cared less.

We’re doing the bouquet and garter toss, but we’re including all the laides and all the guys. We’re going to attach scratch off lottery tickets to the bouquet and garter as a little prize.

Not doing any toss – IMO i think it’s all kind of dated and the garter is pretty trashy. I would never want my grandmother to see that.

@Fall_In_Love22: ooo…what a great idea!

We’re not doing either. I kind of hate the tradition and considering we only have a handful of single guests, it’s pretty much pointless. Instead, we’re going to do an anniversay dance and the couple who’s been married the longest will get my toss bouquet filled with some scratch offs.

We chose not to do either as well. We were in our late 30’s when we married and knew there would only be a small number of singles.
