I am! I don’t know that its come up much yet, but I’m sure once I make my intentions known, my single bridesmaids (and guests) will just wait around for me to drop the bouquet, then grab it and run.

Kidding (hopefully).

I don’t think I’ll be doing it. Mostly because we’re having a small wedding (60 guests) and most of them will be married, so it would just be weird!

@Professor: I also did not do the bouquet toss or garter tradition.  I *HATE* them and refused to do them.

Don’t worry about your aunts….they might threaten to hijack a centerpiece for the toss, but no one can do “the toss” except the bride and they can’t *force* you to do it!  If they try to do it, everyone else will just think they’re weird anyway. 🙂

ME! I always haaaaaaaated being dragged out to try to catch it, and I get embarassed watching other people do the garter. I want no part of that. Also, FI’s family is pretty religious/conservative, so I doubt this will be missed. If that’s someone else’s thing, have fun with it, but I am going to pass.

That’s tricky. I mean, I would stand my ground about not having it. Can you have your dj/mc ban them from taking over or letting them have the floor? And well, if they actually have the gall to take it upon themselves to do it, I’d just let them. They’ll just look ridiculous when you don’t participate!

Haha, our florist had given us a free toss bouquet with our flowers, but I completely forgot about the toss!! We also adamantly insisted on NOT doing the garter toss, so it was all good 🙂

We didn’t do a bouquet toss- we did an anniversary dance instead, and it was lovely!

Me! We’re not doing or the garter toss. I don’t think they’re fun, and I think they’re kind of embarrassing…

We’re skipping the bouquet toss and the garter business. Bouquet tosses always make me feel awkward, and I usually take that time to run to the restroom/outside/anywhere else!

I think I read somewhere (not sure if it was Weddingbee or not!) about giving your bouquet to the couple that’s been married the longest, which I think is super sweet!

I did not do the boquet toss or the garter toss at the wedding and no one seemed to miss them.  In fact, I actually bought a garter to wear and then completely forgot to put it on– I didn’t even realize it until the next day when I pulled the garter out of my bag still in the package!  So I guess we wouldn’t have had one even if we wanted to!

I am skipping the bouquet and the garter toss! Ugh. I was dragged into the bouquet toss group at my last friend’s wedding and hated it. There was a small contingent of us women standing there grumpy and unhappy. I’d rather spare my friends those negative emotions on my wedding day. As for the garter toss, its embarressing to watch the groom climb up the bride’s skirt to “dirty” music in front of his friends and family. The thought of being the bride in that situation just freaks me the heck out! Ugh. No toss!
