So just about 2 years ago I was the Maid/Matron of Honor in a good friends wedding (very small & planned in a week!)
I was the “lucky girl” who caught her toss bouquet AND was the next in the group to get married (or am so in just a few weeks)
Now I still have the bouquet (as I keep just about everything) and had a thought this evening….
What if I used that same bouquet to toss at my wedding?
Can I do that?
Is it cliche/bad etiquette
Is it passing on “good juju”
So now I leave it to the Hive…. below is a pic of the bouquet. It doesn’t “fit” our style or wedding theme but I still think it just might work….

I’m all for re-cycling 🙂 I say use it, unless it has sentimental value and you want to keep it…

I say toss it on to the next lucky person 🙂
If you want to change or add a bow in your colors that would be good too. It would make it another part of you, and then the next bride can do the same. It can be a wonderful new tradition among your group of friends.

@pink.sequins not really.. I still have my Maid/Matron of Honor bouquet which was different than the other girls so I think I’m good with being 1 down =)
@noritake22 I love the idea of adding to it!.. making it fit us and then passing it on! I will definitely have a tid bit mentioned during the toss or personally to the girl who catches it..
Now to figure our how to fit our retro paper flowers thing in this white artificial flower toss lol

@runsyellowlites: Maybe make some mini paper flowers and attach them to ribbon in your colors wrapped around the bouquet stem?

I love this! it’s a bouquet that works 😉 Maybe add the initials/wedding dates of the brides who have thrown it.

Thanks ladies! I’m really digging adding the initials/dates… but really wanna add something that fits us too!
I don’t think just adding the ribbon will be enough b/c well I don’t think I’m even going to wrap my bouquet in ribbon (gasp)
Me and a gf are definitely gonna play around with it this weekend to see what can be done =)

Wow, I can’t believe you held onto that! I think it’s cute to use it again. I never would have thought to actually keep a bouquet.

I would say use it, but you may want to give your friend (I’m assuming she’s coming to your wedding) the heads up. I love the story that goes with this!

@Sking actually she’s not… we aren’t really all that close anymore, we had a VERY tight guestlist to people that we actually saw atleast on a weekly basis, and then recently she moved out of state (which may be feel WAY better for not inviting her).. I know it’s terrible but we just went seperate directions after the big day.
I wanna definitely let her know though… gonna send her a fb message today! =)
