Alternatives to Bouquet/Garter Toss
Posted 28 February 2008 - 05:33 PM
Does anyone have ideas of an alternative to the bouquet toss and garter toss. There are not going to be that many single folks at the wedding and so I feel like there is no point, other than laughing at all the people trying to grab for it!!
My uncles cousin played a game instead of the toss where they had everyone stand up, and they started to ask a series of questions (like, sit down if you have never been married....sit down if you have been married less than a year...etc) until the last people standing won a bottle of champaign and some cigars I believe. Since we are at an AI and theres no point in trying to fly with champaign, I think its a cute idea but not ideal.
I was thinking about presenting my toss bouquet to my mom, but that kinda leaves out his dad and my dad....

Another option is to present your bouquet to a woman in your family or group of friends who serves as an inspiration to you.. or just because! ... I recently had a bride who did this with her brother-in-law's long time girlfriend (not fianc©e) to push the guy to propose! It was really cute but it can be a touchy subject if they are not at that stage, you know what I mean?
Although the garter and bouquet toss are a common tradition, it's perfectly acceptable to skip them! IMHO, you are planning a destination wedding, which is anything but traditional so skipping one or two old traditions is not going to kill you! Besides, you still have the cake cutting and dances.. I hear that the Macarena is making a come-back.. (grin!)

We aren't doing anything either. I doubt we will care because we will be partying to hard to even remember if we did want to do one.
