- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
@LaTortuga: I was planning on throwing my big bouquet – we left for our honeymoon the day after the wedding, and I knew my bouquet would go bad. It made me so happy to think that one of my girlfriends would be able to enjoy this huge, gorgeous bouquet for a week or two! I didn’t order a smaller “toss bouquet” but as it turned out my florist made me one anyway. When it was time for the bouquet toss someone handed me that one. I didn’t know where my actual bouquet was, and I’m still not sure where it ended up haha. But anyways, I’m definitely in favor of tossing your big bouquet unless you are very adamant about drying it out (and if you’re leaving right away for your honeymoon, you’ll have to have someone else take care of that for you). I don’t regret not keeping my bouquet – I have lots of photos of it, including one photo that I enlarged and framed – and I’m happy that way 🙂

We are not doing a bouquet toss, because there are not enough single ladies. I don’t really love this tradition. We ARE doing a dance for the longest married couple, and I am giving my bouquet to that woman. I am going to give my actual bouquet, but I’m not really sentimental about keeping things like that.

I am keeping mine, but that is because one of my AWESOME bridemaids made it for me (she made fabric flowers with button centers). But, i say do what you want! If you want to toss yours, go for it!

I think most brides, including myself, is using a “toss bouquet.” It is up to you, I really don’t think you need to throw yours and if your sister wouldn’t mind then just throw hers.

So the whole thing isnt pressing but I like that idea of giving it to the oldest married couple. I think I will be tossing mine. I like the tradition 🙂
