(Ah…the last of my recaps…yikes!) I know that there is a lot of debate surrounding the tosses. Some people absolutely hate the idea, while other people love the tradition. Many a bee has dedicated a post explaining her reasoning against the tradition (Mrs. Lemur) or for the tradition (Mrs. Dalmation)—and some ended up with spontaneous tosses (Mrs. Genie). And since I’m writing about it, I’m obviously in the pro-toss camp.
Our wedding was the first among my group of friends, and I wanted to have my friends experience this typical wedding tradition. None of them was against it, as it was all done in good sport.
Sometime during the dancing portion of the evening, I asked the DJ to call the single ladies to the floor. I didn’t designate a special song, but I think that Marek might have played Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” We had seven ladies of “marriageable age”: four bridesmaids, two friends, and one of Mr. B’s cousins.
Excuse my weird face—I was trying to gauge out how high I could throw the bouquet.
Another thing that gets discussed when talking about bouquet tosses: toss bouquet vs. your bouquet. I chose not to have our florist make a special toss bouquet. My wedding bouquet was lovely, but after that night…I didn’t see myself keeping it or using some of its flowers in a shadowbox. *
