Many Brides are moving away from the idea of the traditional Bouquet toss. Not all of your single guests want to be in the spotlight or take part in this tradition.
The tradition of the bouquet toss goes back many years to a time when ladies thought themselves very ‘lucky’ to be getting married. So that some of this luck could rub off on their friends, they would toss their bouquet and according to tradition the ‘catcher’ would be the next to marry. Most see this now as nothing more than fun and do not take the good luck too seriously.
Some brides are hoping for a more understated feel to their wedding without theatrics. A good idea for these brides is to choose a couple attending their wedding that has a milestone anniversary coming up and pass on the bouquet to them to celebrate their luck in marriage. Another similar idea would be to distribute the stems from your bouquet to various couples or pass it off to either set of parents to thank them for their efforts.
Many brides keep their bouquet and dry the flowers to enjoy beyond their wedding day.
