I have heard of doing a toss bouquet that breaks apart.  Each small nosegay has a fortune or saying tied around the bottom.  It breaks apart when you toss it, and all women can come up for the toss.  If you talk to your florist about it, she will probably be able to come up with something like it!

why not do an anniversary dance instead of the toss?

Since you aren’t having dancing, an anniversary dance won’t work.

I’ve read about people "passing" the bouquet to the woman who has been married the longest. I’m actually considering that. But since you are looking for something with a little more "excitement" I’d second sea otter about a bouquet that  breaks apart, it will be something unexpected.

the break apart bouquet is an amazing idea! I’ve never heard of it before! another idea: I had my florists make a bouquet of just grasses and then I attached gift cards to a smoothie joint and starbucks along with movie passes to it. then i had both single men and women (including those with FIs or gf/bfs) try to catch it. The point was that the person who caught the bouquet would have a few tools to take someone special out on a date. This can easily apply for everyone, and not just those who are single. It’s fun for everyone (who doesn’t like free stuff???), and I know guests at my wedding loved the idea 😀

I think I spent $50 total for the gift cards and movie passes for my toss bouquet. one gift card each for starbucks and the smoothie place, and then i bought four movie passes from costco since they’re fairly cheaper there. You could buy two passes instead. Or I’ve also heard of people attaching small popcorn bags or candy bags instead of gift cards. But yeah, the breakaway bouquet is definitely a cute idea as well!

We won’t have many singles at our ceremony/reception, either; so what we’re thinking of doing is having the garter toss and bouquet toss-but to announce before hand that whomever catches bouquet or garter we will make a $50 donation in their name to their favorite charity.

I’ve got a cute (or at least I think so!) idea, and will be posting about it soon…don’t want to spoil the surprise here, but suffice it to say, it’s different enough from the norm but will still allow us to toss the bouquet and garter.

A friend had a break-away bouquet that split in three.  It was really funny but if you do that, don’t tell anyone!  Two of the three catchers were bridesmaids and they were certainly surprised!

I’m not having either toss.  My mom started to get a little bummed about it, but she felt better after I pointed out that my three single friends wouldn’t appreciate being "singled" out.

the break-away idea is great!

I have a friend that handed out flowers to each of the single ladies instead of having a toss. (that way everybody wins!)
