I did the bouquet toss but I had a “throw away” bouquet made by the florist so I could keep my bouquet.

But I didn’t have it when I left the reception. Instead I had it on a vase on the headtable and my parents brought it home with them. I got it Sunday morning.

I don’t think I’ll be thinking about it at the end of the reception.  I’m going to put my Mom in charge of it so it gets taken care of.  By the time the reception ends I think I’m going to be ready to hit the sack and not care where it is….lol.

I did, because mine was bigger, and prettier!  I wanted more pictures with it.  I didn’t use a toss bouquet though, I just used one of the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets.

We are changing for our last dance so I don’t think I will hold my bouquet when we exit. I will probably ask my mom to make sure she takes it home.

I’m making a brooch bouquet, so I will not be tossing it. It will decorate our sweetheart table, but I’d like to take it with me as we leave. If not, I’ll definitely make sure my mom or sister sees that it makes it home!

@jennifer_espos: Did you bridesmaid care that you gave her boquet away?  Thats my plan also but I just want to make sure everyones ok w that.

I think I was carrying it at some point on the way out. I was one of the last to leave though, so I don’t think it mattered all that much.

As for using a Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquet, I think I would be a little upset if I were a bridesmaid and my bouquet was used as the toss one. I’m silly though – I love having the flowers to take homeif I’m a Bridesmaid or Best Man. I got a toss one for my wedding and I think it was an extra $5 or $10.
