I think this is totally up to you.  Usually, the bouquet toss is towards the middle to end of the event so unless you want to preserve your bouquet, then you can use your bm’s bouquet or order a smaller, less expensive bouquet.  There’s no wrong or right, just want YOU want to do.  ๐Ÿ™‚

You can also make an inexpensive silk version of your bouquet if you don’t want to toss yours (or your maids!).

You could also DIY a bouquet from silk flowers found at most major craft stores, then you don’t have to worry about your BMs being upset if they wanted to keep theirs.  I would definitely not toss your own bouquet, just in case you change your mind at the last minute about keeping it.  I agree with pinkparfait, there is no right or wrong way when it comes to the bouquet toss!

Here is an easy way. But use floral tape. Very cheap btw. And a bunch of carnations packed tightly together or a showy large but inexpensive type of flower. My friend used white. There are a few ways to accomplish this, and she used a hot glue gun but this is one site I’ve bookmarked long ago.

She used two different types of ribbons though. One to wrap with in main wedding color, and another to be long strands tied under the flowers at upper part of bouquet beneath the blooms kinda where you can’t see it. Looked pretty as it flew through the air.

This site has step by step and pics.

try talking to the florist who is providing your bouquet (if you are getting yours from a florist of course!) They just might include the toss bouquet for very cheap – mine is only costing me $10!

LMJ is right!  Might just include it too.

Never hurts to ask or negotiate right?

I had never even thought of tossing one of the bridesmaid’s bouquets– what a great idea!!  I decided not to order the toss bouquet as well bc it was going to cost another $80-100 for a smaller version of what I have for the ceremony.  An in fact- that’s all I asked them to make for my Maid of Honor (only having one attendant)- a smaller version of my bouquet.  I think you do whatever you want for this.  So many people use the bridesmaid’s bouquets for centerpieces, etc.  They are your best buds– I’m sure that they’ll be fine with whatever you want to do ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck!

Most florists will throw in the toss bouquet for free (mine did)…see what you can negotiate.  Just tell them to use whatever leftover flowers they have to a small little toss boquet together.  The toss bouquet is just going to get messed up anyway from the girls fighting over it, so they really won’t care if its little and filled with whatever random flowers.  Like my toss bouquet, for example, was made up of like 5 flowers anyway.

I actually got a candy bouquet and it was a really big hit! It had silk roses and then chocolate truffles that were on floral wire I believe. it looked really pretty and I heard it tasted really good too!

Angelas’ idea is actually pretty cool! ๐Ÿ™‚ It will get people more excited since it’s out of the ordinary.

What I did was just buying some random flower bouquet from WalMart the night before and DIY it. Not really hard! You can even delegate this task to someone. Just give them floral tape and a pool of ribbon in your wedding color. It wasn’t really a priority for me, so I went for the inexpensive route ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t want it to be "last-minute", you can have silk flowers instead.

I got a cheapo toss bouquet and it worked out fine. I also took it apart before I threw it, so it went EVERYWHERE. It was hilarious…but also kind of sweet because everyone got a piece.
