Just wondering what you gals who have been Bridesmaid or Best Man do with your bouquets? And did/would you care if the bride/groom appropriate the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets after the ceremony/reception introduction?
Or as a bride, what did you do with the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets afterwards?

I usually keepm them for a while then pass them on to a deserving niece to play dress up with.

I tried the two that I have, but I think they are just hanging out in my basement. I would be fine if the bride and group wanted them back after the ceremony.

I kept one and used it as a flower arrangement at home until it died (it was an easy size/shape), and another I accidentally left at the reception after the fact. I don’t think I would care if the bride wanted to keep them afterwards; it would save me from feeling guilty about not keeping it myself!

I kept mine till it doed then tossed it. If the bride wanted it I would be fine with that.

I actually don’t remember what happened to one of them…I may have left it?! Oops! The other I took home and displayed until it died, then tossed it. I wouldn’t mind if the bride wanted it after the wedding- she did pay for it, afterall!

We’ll have vases on tables for them to put them in, they can take them after the reception if they want to. Otherwise I’m sure they’ll just go home with my family.
If they’re in good shape, I’ll probably give one to each of the grandma’s.
