My florists made a special one for me to throw. I think that is most commonly done now. My boquet was too big and too expensive to throw. Talk to your florist they will know what to do.

Good luck!

I think getting an extra bouquet to toss is the way to go. If you’re taking bridal portraits before the wedding, think about scheduling them within a couple days of the wedding (if possible). And ask your florist to give you the toss bouquet for those photos. Then just keep it in your fridge until the wedding, or ask your florist to keep it in their fridge.

That way you can have a bouquet in your bridal portraits (although it might be a smaller version), which will double as your toss bouquet. And you can keep your own bouquet.

Hope that helps!!

My florist threw in a toss bouquet for free – my understanding is she just uses “leftover” flowers from everything else.  I was a  bridesmaid in a wedding where the bride actually tossed MY bouquet, which was fine as I don’t think anyone except me noticed, and I was out of town so I wasn’t bringing it on the plane with me home anyway.  Just a few suggestions!

Most of the time a seprate one is made… It is also much smaller than the actual brides bouquet and therefore less expensive.

Some people get more attached to wedding related “things” than others. For me, I don’t care much about stuff like that, so I don’t think it’s very practical to keep a dried old boquet of dead flowers, when you have pictures that look MUCH nicer forever!

99% of the time the toss bouquet is a smaller one made for the bride to throw.

I made a fake bouquet to throw. It is has the floral sticks stuck in the bouquet and I am going to tape scratch tickets to it! I probably spent $10 putting the bouquet together and get $15 worth in scratch tickets. I hope it will make the bouquet toss very interesting!
