I’m doing none. I’d rather spend the time dancing. I agree with ppl and say it is an old tradition thats fading. I went to my cousin’s wedding recently and they didn’t do either, and honestly, no one noticed or cared. It was nice and simple reception and I walked away wanting to do that too.
Personally, to compromise with your Fiance I would only do one. An alternative might be some sort of game, like the shoe question game?

I skipped the garter toss, but still had a bouquet toss.
My bouquet toss was far from traditional. Most females at my reception were married, and I didn’t want to single out the few single female friends. I invited everyone to join in (males included) and offered a cash prize to whomever caught the bouquet.
I had quite the crowd, and everyone seemed to be excited to catch the bouquet!

We skipped both tosses and instead, we presented his mother and my great aunt with flowers.

Like this idea! How much was the cash prize if you dont mind my asking?

I offered $50. It was enough to get people going.
