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.
