    We did it at the last minute and I’m glad we did! We opened it up to all ages and just let the catchers keep what they caught. Our 14 year old niece caught the bouquet and his 28 year old work friend caught the garter. Girl talked about putting the bouquet on her dresser. Guy went around with the garter on his head like a badge of honor. 🙂

    We’ve decided not to. I don’t want Fiance with his head up my dress in front of my family – i’ve always felt like this is awkward, and i’ve been at weddings wheresingle ladies are forced to get up to catch the bouquet even if they don’t want to and again it can become a little awkward so we’re opting out of that. But we’re also opting out of lots of traditional things..

    We tossed the bouquet and garter… I had some pretty excited guys and gals trying to catch those things it was kinda funny. We were the first couple to have a wedding and the 2nd couple out of our friends to get married so a lot of people were still into this tradition. =) It also made for some of the funniest photos of the night! Glad we didn’t skip out on it.

    I’ll be tossing. I’ve never been to a wedding that didn’t toss.

    No. I find it embarrassing, both as the bride and as a herded single lady.

    We might do bouquet but  a lot will be married or older and made a choice not to be married so we might skip it.  No garter though, I talked to Fiance about it and hes totally fine with that too.

    I think it all depends on your age, the age and status of your guests.  We never did the garter toss (you have no idea how hot, sweaty and sticky it is under that dress ;)) but we did do the bouquet toss.  INstead of only the single women I had all the single people come up on the floor.  People were hesistant until my DJ looked at me and said “Start naming names!”…so I did.

    All the singles made their way to the floor as the DJ said their name.  In a twist I tossed loose roses (it looked like a bouquet) so alot of people got a rose.  It looked awesome in pics and people loved being showered in flowers!

    We’re not doing it. It’s annoying as a female who was often the one out of four single ladies in the deep southern weddings having some plant hurled at us as if the one thing we should ever want is a husband. Also Fi’s face/hand isn’t going up my dress until we’re alone. I just always see it as trashy whenever I’ve seen it at weddings.

    We’re doing both, but we’re changing it up a bit. The bouquet is going to be a bunch of lottery scratch tickets together (with the annoucement that if any big money is won we get part of it! [all in good fun FYI.]), and then the garter is going to have two or three scratch tickets on it. We’re also opening it up, the bouquet is for women, the garter for men, regardless of relationship status.

    This is my inspiration for my scratch ticket bouquet


    And I’m going to make the garter, but I’m still trying to figure out how to attacth the scratch cards. Obviously I’m going to be slipping the garter on right before the toss.
