So, me and Fiance are in our 30s and I don’t think there will be many single people at our wedding. I am kind of against the bouquet toss because I think it is pointless. I said something to Fiance and I think he expected to do that. I think it is just more of an added cost for a toss bouquet and to get a garter and all that. What about all of you, are you planning to do this?

I have never been a fan of them. I am planning a non-traditional wedding and we will not be doing a bouquet or garter toss for sure.

The fiancé and I decided not to do them either. I think they’re just uncomfortable for everyone.

Nope, we’re not. The only unmarried people there will be recent divorcees, his siblings, and a few women over 50.

We too are in our thirties with very few single friends, so we will not have a garter or bouquet toss. I have heard of brides giving away a bouquet to the couple that has been married the longest. I think that is a nice touch.

We are also not doing them. Nothing was worse to me than being paraded around as the “single girls”.
Instead I am doing a pinata stuffed with mini-bottles and other treats 🙂

We did both. But most of our friends are still single and most of them (including me) really enjoy this part of a wedding and look forward to it.
But I must say I have NEVER been to a wedding that does the ‘put the garter on the bouquet catcher’s leg thing’. I have only heard about that on wedding bee. All the weddings I go to – someone catches the bouquet and someone catches the garter and that’s that!

We’re not doing either. Just because we don’t want to!

We’re gonna do the boquet toss, what else am I supposed to do with the boquet anyway? We will have a good ammount of single ladies.
Not the garter toss, that’s just a copy of the boquet and dosn’t seem right.
My friend had a pinata at her wedding instead of the tosses. That was fun.

We’re not doing it. I sort of can’t stand the tradition. Instead, we’ll be doing an anniversary dance and the wife of the couple that has been married the longest will get my bouquet.

No – I don’t like single people having to parade around as if they all pine away to get married, you know? Not my style. Plus, having some random guy catch the piece of underwear that your hubby just fished out from under your dress in front of Grandma and then put it on the upper thigh of a stranger that caught the bouquet is g.r.o.s.s. for me! I would NEVER consent to have some guy put his hands under my dress and on my inner thigh for fun if I caught the bouquet, lol! Probably why I never go up for it…

I didn’t want to do them because I have HATED the bouquet toss for years (I have attended lots of weddings single and I am 29 years old). However, my Fiance really wanted to toss the garter for some reason.
So, we are going to toss the bouquet to all women (married & single) and the garter to all men (married & single). I think we’re going to attach a small gift card to both to make people actually want to catch them. Also, I will probably toss my sister’s bridesmaid bouquet so I don’t have to purchase a “toss” bouquet.
