kcwilson11 :  My florist made a smaller version of my bouquet for tossing! My bouquet was huge and heavy, so not only would it have been awkward to toss but it probably would have just made a big “thunk!” and hit the ground. Lol.

Ask your florist if they could do something like that for you–they might even do it at no cost depending on how large your flower order is. We spent a good bit on floral arrangements, so they didn’t charge for my toss bouquet.

My florist included a small bouquet (for free) for the toss.

Most florists will include (free or small fee) a toss bouquet. Smaller, less expensive, so you can keep your larger one.

My florist made me a second one to toss. At the time, I wanted to preserve mine since I went with a big cascading bouquet…but when cleanup was done at the end of the night, my bouquet was accidentally thrown out…along with the top of our cake. GRRRRR!

Looking back, I really didn’t need two…

I didn’t do a bouquet toss, but my florist asked me if I needed a “toss bouquet” when we were finalising my flower order. If I had have said yes, she would have given me a small bouquet (about the size of my bridesmaids’) for free to use.

As previous bees mentioned, your toss bouquet is typically separate from your actual bridal bouquet.
