    I thought I might do it, and made a toss bouquet when I made the others. However, I wasn't set on doing it, as when I was single it was a tradition I didn't like. Then, in a mishap the toss bouquet was ruined, so I took it as a sign that this is a tradition I am not meant to keep. No bouquet toss for us.

    Nay, I hate this at other weddings so we will definitely not do it.

    Yeppers. Because I've always wanted to toss the bouquet. I'm not really expecting people to scramble for it... haha. But there are several unmarried girls invited, many of which are in long term relationships, and I can see it being more funny than cruel.

    I'm not sure - I'm not a fan of them, but...I am thinking of doing a scatter bouquet, so all my friends get a beautiful flower. But I'm leaning more towards 'nope' right now.

    I was not going to, but i had a few single ladies and it was such fun. It wasn't meant to put anyone down it was more a bonding moment between us girls. And we danced around a bit haha

    Nah. We're doing neither bouquet or garter toss. Not a fan, feels like unnecessary misogynistic traditions (in my opinion)

    I bought an extra bridesmaid bouquet to do the toss just in case! Not 100% set on it though!

    I’m still on the fence about this. On one hand, I like the idea of preserving my bouquet; on the other hand, I don’t want a collection of things I can’t use so the idea of someone else taking it home and appreciating it for however long it lasts naturally sounds nice.

    Nope, I want to keep my bouquet, and I also think it's another tradition that hasn't aged well. The idea that everyone is competing to catch a symbol of the traditional model of romantic relationships doesn't sit well with me, and when I was single, I always avoided this part of the reception.

    I still have to go through and see how many single ladies we have to see if it will make sense to do it. Will also depend if we do a garter toss

    Nop! The last couple of weddings I went to, the bouquet was "meant" for a specific girl and we were told not to catch it. Definitely took the fun out of it.

    No. We don’t have a single person at the wedding that’s single, and I wouldn’t do it anyways

    I am going to do a bouquet toss. There won't be too many single ladies at our wedding, but I really don't want to skip it cause I think it's a cute little tradition.

    Sure am! Not sure how many singles will be there as we are the last to get married for the most part and anybody who isn't is too young to be at the wedding (18+)!
