If you recall our engagement story, you might remember that I caught the bouquet at our friend’s wedding mere hours before Mr. Waterfall proposed. For all you bouquet skeptics out there: Don’t mock the bouquet juju—it works! So, of course, Mr. W and I thought it would be fun to include the traditional tosses, and if they happened to bring good fortune to our friends, all the better! Once we cut the cake, our DJ announced the bouquet toss and called my girl friends to the dance floor by playing the ubiquitous “Single Ladies.” Some might say it’s cliche and totally overplayed; others might say it’s awesome and fun. (You can guess what camp I’m in.)
Of course, since some people abhor bouquet tosses, we decided not to embarrass anyone by making participation 100% optional, but we had a pretty good turnout! Beforehand, Papa Long Legs came to see me and asked me to make sure MOH Long Legs caught the bouquet, and I was all too happy to oblige. We aim to please, after all.
After I shook my tooshie to Beyonce an appropriate amount, it was time to aim and throw, making sure not to hit the amazing crystal chandelier in the process.
