i am adamantly against a garter toss and have no plans to even wear one, but i’m entertaining the idea of a bouquet toss. not weird at all.

I don’t think this is weird.  I’m not doing a bouquet toss (few single people who are of legal age).  However, I am considering giving a bouquet to the lady who has been married the longest.

I don’t think it is weird either. I am contemplating doing a bouquet toss, but definately not doing the garter toss. We are staying at our venue the night of and there is a lovely balcony off our suite that looks over the lawn and a lake. If I do the bouquet toss, it will be as a goodbye to all of the singles from the balcony 🙂

I did just a bouquet toss and no garter toss. I don’t think anyone thought twice about it.

My fiance doesn’t want a garter toss because he thinks its very *unChristian-like* and he doesn’t think it is right to flaunt your wife’s intimate things at other guys etc….. I am not sure I want a bouquet toss either because I have few single guests of legal age either and I want to preserve it.

p.s. i accidentally caught the bouquet at my MOH’s wedding–literally accidentally, i was standing apart from the other women and got hit in the face with the bouquet–and was forced to endure what felt like an eternity of embarassment when the dj made the 17 year old boy who caught the garter put the garter on me–and said that every inch i let him go above my knee meant another year of happiness for the married couple. and because the situation couldn’t possibly get any more uncomfortable, somehow the dj was clued in to the fact that my Fiance, dad, and brother were all at this wedding, and he made them all come up on the dance floor to stand over me while i had a teenage boy basically grope me. so yeah, i don’t want any garters at my wedding.

I had a bouquet toss but no garter toss. They are separate traditions; you can totally have one without the other.

I will be doing a bouquet toss but not a garter toss.   We just don’t have too many single friends.

I refused to wear a garter, but I did do the bouquet toss. Nobody thought it was strange. No one even mentioned the lack of garter toss.

I’m doing a bouquet toss cos my gals will be devo if I don’t, but there’s no way in hell I’m doing a garter toss. I’d die of embarrassment having the fella’s head up my dress in front of our families… cringe!

@pb and j:Yuck.  That is so gross.  I don’t get how that is fun at all.
