    I vote don’t do either.  As a single gal, the bouquet toss was always my least favorite part of weddings.  I always hid in the back and made no attempt to catch it, lol.  Fi and I also find the garter thing a little weird…neither of us want his head under my dress in front of everyone.  So we are giving the bouquet to the couple who has been married the longest and the dj will say something about how we hope to have a long happy marriage like them.  We aren’t replacing the garter toss with anything.

    Honestly do whatever you want. It is okay to have no bouquet toss and still do a garter toss.

    My cousin did that thing where they ask every married couple to get up and dance for a song. The DJ tells you to sit down if you’ve been married for only a few hours (the bride and groom), then if you’ve been married a year….five years, and so on until the couple who has been married the longest is left standing. Give them the bouquet. Skip the garter.


    My cousin’s was rigged, though. He knew our grandparents were getting ready to celebrate their 60th, so they got it. It was awesome.

    I love the idea of giving it to the couple who has been married the longest. Fun and interactive to do it with the dancing!

    We didn’t do either since we had very few single people (and those who were single really didn’t need to be singled out).  We had planned an anniversary dance but never got around to it.
