Breakaway Bouquet Toss
Posted 06 April 2010 - 11:33 AM
My issue is that I would like to include a mini-poem to the single female guests to attach to each flower. So if you know of such a poem to give to your single friends, please share.
Thanks sooo much!

Here is a pic from Martha Stewart. She called them "Fortune Bouquets" and added various fortunes to the ribbon, such as "the next man you date will be your husnad" or "you will run into a long lost friend". I don't want to go that route and prefer to just add a poem or quote.
Martha Stewart Weddings Good Things article about "fortune bouquets". The article suggested a twist on the usual bouquet toss by combining it with a cake pull type tradition. You'd separate the bouquet into mini bouquets that would each have a fortune attached to them. Then, when you toss the bouquet, it breaks apart and a few girls get to catch the bouquet and get a fortune.

#1- You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
#2- Love is everything it's cracked up to be...it really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.
#3- A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
#4- Some people come into our lives for a while, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same.
#5- So take this rose, my special friend and hold it close to your heart. And always remember me, your friend, and we'll never be apart.
#6- If friends were flowers, you would be the perfect rose.
#7- The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow seperately without growing apart.

We are doing the bouquet toss tradition a little different than most of you are probably used to. I mean, would you expect anything else? So in ancient times, it was believed that the Bride and Groom were especially lucky on their wedding day. Guests would sometimes tear at the Bride’s dress for a souvenir piece of good luck to take home. The Bride would toss her bouquet or garter to prevent guests from bothering her (and her dress!) during her reception and to pass along some of the new couple’s good fortune. We want to share our good fortune and would like everyone to join in the fun. So we need all of the ladies out here on the dance floor to see what they can catch.
