Because my bouquet was big and heavy and I wanted to keep it 😀 I tossed a much smaller one so if anyone got hit, it wouldnt be with this massive thing.

@chasesgirl:  this. The way my ladies fought over that thing, someone would have gotten hurt! My florist just made a very simple throw bouquet of leftover flowers from the other arrangements.

Lots of people have their florists make toss bouquets! (In fact, I think every single wedding i’ve been to!)

I kept my bouquet. I grabbed a few silks from Michael’s and made a bouquet myself for the toss. My florist offered, but I already had it. She said she usually makes them free, so I just got farewell toss petals free instead!

My bouquet was large enough that it wouldn’t have been practical to toss, plus I wanted to try to keep it. My mom took it home after the reception and dried it. My florist made a small toss bouquet. Easy peasy!

I’m on the OP’s side of things I don’t want to keep it, so I’m throwing my real bouquet away.

I told my florist that I didn’t need a toss away bouquet, and I would just toss mine.  She laughed at me.  She said that most brides say that, but since it’s so much bigger and heavier, it’s not a good idea.  Makes sense to me!

I was always under the assumption that the toss bouquet was free, or at least included in the price of the bridal bouquet. I wasn’t doing a bouquet toss and my florist knew that, but they still gave me a toss bouquet anyway, we just displayed it on the cake table.

I wouldn’t have wanted to throw my bouquet, it’s far too heavy and if it hit someone they’d probably get hurt.

2012 Brides are doing away with the whole throwing the boquet and garter toss.  We are not doing it at ours.  There was a huge article on it just last week. 

I think its a matter of personal opinion, but i dont think that the girls that have been dating the same guy for years will not want it to be tossed in her face she is not engaged yet or the single girls our age. 

I think presenting it to your mother is a much better idea.  🙂

Not sure what I’d do personally, but I beg you to please either get a toss bouquet or toss your own and don’t ask for it back.  I caught the bouquet at a friend’s wedding and thought I got to keep it…then AS I WAS LEAVING with it (it was a Sunday reception and I had to get up early for work so I left before the send off), she tapped me on the shoulder and said “actually, can I have that back?”  It was REALLY embarassing, I felt like a thief!  Her mom even came up to me and apologized for her.
