Our florist made us a small, fresh throwaway for no charge!

Most florists will make a small throw bouquet for minimal to no charge. 

That being said, if you don’t actually care that much about doing a bouquet toss, I recommend not doing one at all. Many women don’t like being forced to be in the spotlight for being single. If you don’t do one, no one will miss it. 

A friend of mine throw a “bouquet” of lottery tickets out to all of the women (single and not) which was kinda fun and didn’t make anyone feel awkward.

We didn’t do a bouquet toss but yes – usually you would get a smaller version or something else if you want to keep yours 🙂

I tossed my actual bouquet lol. I’m not sentimental with flowers its not like I would have dried them or anything. Plus I kinda feel like the whole good luck thing is because its the bride’s actual bouquet you know? lol my single friends fought for it lol we had fun!

I tossed nothing and we’ve been marrid almost 40 years. I guess I don’t have a tossing family/social circle?

Seems like the thing to do these days is have a small “toss” bouquet. We just skipped the whole thing entirely. The whole day flew by so fast that cutting out traditions that didn’t mean much to us allowed us to have a little more time with our guests.

I threw my actual bouquet but I had actually expected to just get handed it back after someone caught it so that I could have it. It was so beautiful, what proceeded to happen definitely never occured to me as a “risk”. But two girls caught it together and while my friend just laughed about it DH’s friend decided to literally rip the bouquet in half so that they could share it! It happened so quickly… Petals and flowers scattered as she tore at it to separate the bunch into two..and I decided very quickly what the heck! We were leaving for honeymoon the next day, it’s not like I could’ve kept the flowers longer than to the next morning…though I admit I would’ve loved to have woken up to them on the bedside table, and there were pearls on the ribbon of the flowers that I would’ve kept as a souvenir (they disappeared in the bouquet massacre). 

I recommend tossing another bouquet or even a bridesmaids one if at all you feel precious about your main bouquet!

I saw the title of his and all I could think was “pancakes”. Mmm.

dearjohnbride :  Some florists will put together small bouquets that are left over flowers from your wedding to toss.

I tossed a bridesmaid bouquet- she was from out of town so she didn’t mind.
