    I’m not throwing flowers.. or having a garter! I think the garter thing is awkward and that if we eliminate the garter, then the throwing flowers thing is also pointless haha

    I am not throwing my bouquet. If you are going to do it, though, I would get a second set.

    You can throw your flowers later in the night and still be able to have them in photos before the reception.  BUT, I got a small “throw” bouquet which was a smaller version of my bouquet so I could keep mine after the wedding.

    You could also look at making a fake throw away one yourself.  They can actually look really nice.

    I am also not doing the throwing of the flowers or the garter.

    If you do want to do it, I suggest getting a second bouquet or get a bunch of single flowers and throw them at the same time.

    If you want to throw, I’d throw something other than your bouquet. A fake second set makes the most sense to me.

    I’m not doing a bouquet toss, though. I hated it for the year or so when we were verging on engaged and it doesn’t really fit the vibe I’m going for w/ our wedding.

    Option 4: Not throwing flowers at all.  There won’t be enough single women to make it worthwhile.

    I vote option four…not throwing anything. I am not doing a bouquet toss or doing the whole garter thing. It’s two traditions I would not mind fading away.

    I’m not sure if I want to do a bouquet toss.  I’m one of the last ones to get married. So those that are left would really stand out and I would hate to put them on the spot.

    I’m planning to throw my original bouquet.  By the time I throw it, all the pictures will be completed.  I also don’t really like the idea of having a smaller “throwing” bouquet.

    My florist will make a “throwaway bouquet” with what’s left after all of our flowers are made. But I’m leaning toward no bouquet toss. Instead, I like the idea of giving the bouquet to a woman who’s been married the longest or something like that.

    I think I’m going to throw my bouquet… but later in the night after I’m done with photos (maybe right before my photographer leaves and calls it a night).  That is… unless one of my bridesmaids will let me throw theirs instead.  Maybe I’ll see if my sister will let me use her bridesmaid bouquet.  Is that mean?
