As many of you come here to see alternative weddings, I thought you might be interested in seeing this alternative to the bouquet toss. I don't know if someone knows this practice, but I had personally never seed this before so I thought I'd share!
Bouquet Tosses Are Grim And Insulting. We Can Do Better.
Bouquet toss alternative: "I ordered three small “toss bouquets,” gave a “Thank you” speech to our parents, and passed out the bouquets to our mothers. The moms loved the surprise and the sentiment; my still-single relatives were grateful for the toss-reprieve."
Amp up your garter and bouquet toss by giving your guests some incentive to participate! Instead of having the winners of the garter and bouquet toss share a dance, announce that whoever makes the catch wins a bottle of booze and has to take a shot with the other winner. This was a HUGE hit on our big day. ~Signed by Soden
