I plan to skip it. I’ve always felt uncomfortable fighting for a bouquet so I figured I wouldn’t do that to my unmarried girl friends. I did get a garter anyway though. Just because. 🙂

Not doing it. Never liked it even as a child. Its an outdated tradition IMO.

“I want to make sure whatever I do, I’m comfortable and so are my guests.”
I don’t think anyone has ever felt uncomfortable because there wasn’t a toss. I know there have been people uncomfortable because there was. So, there’s your answer.

I dislike them myself, but Fiance said many guests look forward to it so I should do it for them. I am hosting an event after all, so I’m going to do it. I did see online somewhere that a bride gave each single lady a key and they had to try and unlock the bouquet from a box. I don’t remember where I got it, but I saved the picture. The Bride is nowhere to be seen, so you might like that. Just an idea….

We’re not doing it. I don’t have a ton of single girls coming and I would hate to make them feel singled-out and then awkward as a strange man feels up their thigh. I would rather take that time and either dance more, eat more cake, or get a drink. haha.

Neither Fiance or I are a fan of either tradition, we aren’t doing them.

Don’t do it, if you don’t want to!
We didn’t at our wedding and I don’t think anyone missed it. It also helped that we had a band playing, and we told them not to stop for a specific song for that… so nothing was ever announced.

I’m eloping but I would not do either if I had a wedding reception. They are both very tacky to me!

We didn’t do either. Really there isn’t a point and I haven’t seen them done at any of the weddings I’ve been to in the last five years.
