Sorry for the brief hiatus over the holidays, but I am back to share the last few posts about our big day!
There is one tradition, or cluster of traditions I suppose, that I have not addressed. The tosses! As in, of the bouquet and the garter of course. Mr. Dalmatian and I agreed from the beginning that we would only be including one of these in our wedding day. The toss that got the axe was the garter toss. There is just something about them I find awkward and uncomfortable (call me crazy but I did not have an overwhelming desire for Mr. D to stick his head or hands up my dress in front of my extended family). Again, this is not to say that they can never be fun or funny, it was just simply not for us. The bouquet toss on the other hand I do think is quite fun!
I have already shared how much I adored my beautiful bouquet. Luckily, when the time came for the bouquet toss, I was equipped with a smaller tossing bouquet so I did not have to part ways with my lovely blooms.
Clearly the slightly smaller size of this tossing bouquet did not stop my single lady friends from wholeheartedly attempting to catch the thing. Check of Bridesmaid E and MOH K diving for it in the photo below.
Bridesmaid E won this battle, but luckily the competition didn’t get too ugly. MOH K was kind enough to congratulate her on the victory.
I cannot think of a more wonderful bridesmaid and friend to have caught the boquet!
Did your guests put up a good fight to catch the bouquet?
What are your thoughts on bouquet and garter tosses?
