    Fully intending to do both - and if I can make FI toss a Phillies garter (he's a Yanks fan), that will make me cry with laughter. :D

    I was going to do neither. My bridesmaids asked me where the bouquet toss was. I said, I thought we all agreed that was stupid? They said, That's when we weren't the bridesmaids! So that we did...

    Not going to do either for two reasons:

    1) I always hated being at a wedding and being thrown out on the dance floor to catch a bouquet.

    2) Most of our friends are married at this point so we wouldn't have that many "singles" to throw it to!

    julephenia - that is my thinking for the garter toss as well! except he's a mets fan and would have to be throwing a yankee garter.

    as for poll, i voted SS because we are still unsure of whether or not to do it. i have always wanted to throw the bouqet, i just have always imagined it so i might be kind of bummed if i dont. but it does take an extra 10 minutes away from dancing so we're still thinking about it

    Neither - never been a big fan and almost everyone is married at this point.  I've always felt a little uncomfortable watching the garter thing, though I suppose sometimes it can be funny!

    We are not doing either. Instead, we are going to gather all of the married couples on the dancefloor to start dancing. Then the DJ will ask all of the couples married 1 or less years to leave, then 3 and less, 5, 10, 15, etc etc etc until the last couple remaining on the dancefloor, who is the longest, finishes their dance and then gets the bouquet.

    We're going to do this at our wedding! But we know our friends are in to it.

    We did neither becsause, as posters have mentioned, there were so few single guests it would have been awkward.

    I was at one wedding wherre the bride, in lieu of a toss, presented her bouquet to her grandmother with a short, beautiful speech about what her grandmother meant to her, what it felt like to have her at the wedding.

    I thought that was nice.

    Agreed. Not my style at all and add in the fact that it takes time away from dancing and we really don't have many single friends so it's just not going to happen.

    We did it.  We were one of the first couples in our group of friends to get married so there were plenty of single people to fill the dance floor.
