    I think some people have a second bouquet made just for tossing (or they toss their bridesmaid bouquet). Do whatever you feel comfortable with.

    I am leaning toward skipping the bouquet toss entirely. Should I change my mind, I am not throwing my bouquet. I will get something small, with a simple flower, and give that away.

    A note on the garter toss... my boyfriend (now FH) caught 3 garters at weddings over the years and I have kept them all. Totally would have been odd for him to keep them had he been single, but they are nice keepsakes for me. No judgement at all for whatever you decide, but you might have a GF of the guy who caught it wearing it on her leg on the dance floor being caught off guard being asked to give it back. I'd just make sure to make it clear to return it before hand if you want it back so there is no awkward exchange.

    Most people have a separate bouquet to toss since they want to have their bouquet as a keepsake. Only one time did the bride throw her actual bouquet.

    The toss bouquet should be included with your bouquet as they use the leftover flowers from the bridal/bridesmaids bouquet to make the toss one.

    My florist is including a toss bouquet in my package for free. It will be real flowers but not as nice as my bouquet. She said she works so hard to make the bridal bouquet so beautiful she doesn't want someone throwing it into a crowd which I understand.

    It’s not something you have to do, but florist offers a smaller bouquet that is meant specifically for the bouquet toss in case a bride doesn’t want to toss hers.

    I’m torn between tossing mine (because what will I do with it if my honeymoon is a day or two after the wedding?) or preserving it, though I’m not sure if the latter is worth it.

    The last wedding I was bridesmaid at (and caught the bouquet). it was a fake one that looked like the bridesmaid ones. I kept it as a decoration at my house. and am probably using it for my bouquet toss (its all white like my bouquets are going to be).

    I wouldn't want to toss my wedding bouquet as I am having my florist preserve it for me after the wedding.

    I'm tossing one of my bridesmaid's bouquets. Both my sisters have already offered me theirs... They aren't sentimental about keeping it... and then I can keep mine. I believe whoever catches the bouquet should be able to keep it.

    One of my sister's will be flying home after the wedding so I'll probably use hers.

    What I am hearing is that there can be but there doesn't have to be. So for me, I will not have a second bouquet because whoever catches it can give it back - what are they going to do with it anyway right?? Same with the garter - what guy is going to keep their family member or friends new wife's garter??? lol At the same time you could always toss and forget about it with no worries...

    No you don't need to have an additional one to toss. As others have said most like to keep their actual bouquet so they don't want to toss it away. A lot of florists will include a toss bouquet for free or for a small fee and it's a very scaled down version of the brides actual bouquet.
    If your sentimental or think you might want to keep it then I would suggest getting a toss one. If you not and don't hold on to things like that then feel free to toss your actual bouquet.

    Some florists include a toss bouquet as part of your package.
    I will be using my MOH bouquet as she is coming from Australia and most likely won’t be taking it back with her! Saves money and I get to keep my bouquet!

    Technically yes, but its entirely up to you. I had 2 but that’s because my bouquet had broaches in it and I wanted to keep it. I also did fake flowers so it’s much easier to keep lol

    Technically yes, but I’ll honestly probably throw mine. I’m not super bothered about keeping it.

    The last wedding I was at the bride threw one of the bridesmaids bouquets. No point buying an extra IMO. Most of the time there’s a bridesmaid from out of town that can’t really keep their bouquet anyway.

    My understanding is yes you can but that would be up to for, same with the garter toss, for example the wedding I went to last year my fiancé caught the garter, and the bride from that wedding was the one who mentioned that was just her toss garter and that I should use it as my toss garter as it’s lucky!!! Most people including myself like to keep things like the garter or bouquet for themselves so having one to toss is a good idea but not nesscessary
