Wrapped Around Your Finger: Oom Bow Bow – Chick, Chicka Chicka s

There was a time when I didn’t want to do a bouquet or garter toss. Something about it felt forced. I think mostly it was because I had been to weddings where very few of the single people—if there were any—were willing to get up there and give it their all. But now, I’m so glad we did, because the tosses represented two of the funniest, favoritest moments of the night.

Our DJ invoked a Zac Brown reference to describe MOH Ginger’s boyfriend, who prepared for the toss along with my dad and BM Esquire’s boyfriend.

And Zac Brown catches it—with his teeth!

Then, it was my turn. My three single ladies and dad’s fiancee, P, gathered on the deck (and apparently found something funny”¦ I’m unsure what”¦)

And P did this kind of amazing stagger-push-reach move that demonstrated just how clearly she wanted to catch the bouquet. I think she really likes my dad :)

Are you on the fence about the bouquet/garter toss?

    Dad’s GF really wanted that bouquet didn’t she? Lol.
    I didn’t want to do a garter toss either, but now that I think about it, considering the kind of friends we have it’ll be a hilarious moment.

    I’m happy to see a smaller-sized toss crowd still having fun! I don’t think we’re going to get a lot of people up but I hope they’re even half as enthusiastic as your peeps!

    Nearly all of our friends and most of our family is married, so we are skipping garter and bouquet toss. Last wedding I was at with the bouquet toss, it was me, one single friend and the bride’s mother. Mom caught the bouquet….

    there will be so few single women at my wedding that I was joking that instead of a bouquet toss, I would just hand it to the one dateless girl. Seeing this and reading that they turned out to be your favorite moments, gives me new perspective.

    We really want to do the garter/boquet toss! We are very old fashioned and think it will be fun to do since so many of our younger guests didn’t even know what it was. I too love the fathers’ faces!! Priceless!

    We did them. We loved them. The best part was when the BM (who caught the bouquet)’s boyfriend vaguely threatened my cousin (who caught the garter) from the sidelines.

    The DJ was prepared! She promptly switched their positions and soon the BM slid the garter on cousin’s leg! It was hilarious!
