I had never even heard of the garter toss before we were planning our wedding last year. The wedding planner asked me if we were doing it and I had to ask her what she meant. I have seen the bouquet toss before though so clearly you can do the latter without the former. We didn’t do any of it. I do wish we’d asked the venue coordinator if we could have a piñata on the patio but I didn’t think of it.

We are skipping both because I find the history behind a garter toss offensive and disgusting, and I don’t want to do a bouquet toss because shit, I’m paying good money for them flowers! I wanna enjoy them as long as possible! I’ve played a TON of weddings because I’m a wedding musician, and plenty of them only include a bouquet toss with no garter. So you can totally do that! 🙂
