    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      I was at a wedding (with those headstrong no need a man types - including me) and I actually slapped the bouquet away from me and to the ground.

            I'm going to wear a garter, but I'm not tossing it. Neither will I toss a bouquet. I'm like you , Mishi, and I only have 15 guests. I never have liked the tradition anyway...

              It had not even occured to me to get a garter! If I do I'm not tossing it until I get to the honeymoon suite. I'm also giving my bouquet to my mom.

                Oh, I love traditions. I have been to smaller weddings where we did it anyway and it was too funny. I guess the question is do you like the tradition? If so, do it! If it is not important, don't bother. :) Just pick and choose what is important to you and build your event that way.

                  Well the way it's looking, we may just end up with Marty and Missy at our wedding (don't ask) well Marty is single but still in love with her cheating, drunk, ex-FI and Missy will have just gotten married. So needless to say we are not doing a garter or bouquet toss, I wouldn't even want to do it if we had a large group.

                    I think it is up to you but personally I would not. If it was more a traditional wedding yes.

                      Im not tossing the bouquet (only 5 single women) or wearing a garter (no single men).

                      I planning on asking the florist to design two detachable floral sprays into my bouquet and giving these to my FMIL and my mom as a walk down the isle. As for the rest of the bouquet im trying to have it freeze dried and put in a shadow box (if it fits in my budget).
