    Well i m not to sure about doing the garter toss and flower bouquet. Well i know that when i was younger i always looked foward to they day i get to do it but now that its my turn i don't feel i would be able to do it. Since we are having a destination wedding we are only having close friends and family members attending who happend to be all couples so wouldn't have any single woman or men trying to fight to see who catches either one. So i thought of just doing with out it or i thought that we can just call out my future sister in-law and brother-in law out to the floor and hand the flowers and garter over to them since they are the next to get married which would be next year Aug 09 and have them dance a song together. Do you guys have any other ideas or what do you think of my idea?

      I think that's a great idea!!!!! How sweet! We only had 4 guys and 4 gals who were single ... but we still did the toss. Since you have none, I think your idea is PERFECT!!!

        I think that's a great idea. That's actually what I'll be doing... at this point its a tradition within my circle of friends.

        My best friend got the bouquet passed to her when her FI (at the time) was the best man at a wedding, at their wedding this summer she past me the bouquet and they planned that my FI catch the garter, I will be passing the bouquet on to my FI's friend who will be a grooms-maid (not sure what the proper terminology is for that) in our wedding

          I really have not thought that far ahead but now that you bring it up, I think I'll do that with my brother and FSIL!
          Thanks for the great idea!!!!!!!

            I was at a wedding where the bride's bouquet was given to the female guest who had been married the longest. There was no garter toss done. I am in the same boat too, no single people at our wedding, I am the last single gal of my friends to get married. I am not even sure I am getting a garter.

                I would either do that or to the couple who have been together the longest.

                    That is sweet to share the spotlight a lot of brides don't think that way

                      This is a good point, and something I failed to think about, other than just the actual garter "dance". I don't have that many people let alone, single. I mean, I guess there are a few, but I dont want them to feel "focused" on. Hmmm.
