    We are not going to do the garter toss/bouquet as well. I will be wearing one. There's a small amount of singles and considering most of them are going to be my little brother os cousins it may not be appropriate. I know its tradition but it's a dw. Not to mention the last couple of wedding I've been to on NY haven't been doing it anyway.

      No bouquet or garter toss...we will only have 1 single guy & 1 single girl and don't really want them to feel uncomfortable...still wearing a garter tho...which can be removed that night AFTER the reception back at the honeymoon suite :)

        We've decided to give the bouquet to the longest married couple. We also chose a song to dedicate to them, we thought they could dance to it and then my FI and I could join in about half way. The garter...I'll still wear one (it's my something blue), but not do the whole digging for it at the reception. We have some very conservative people and I don't want to offend. Besides, I don't think my FI would be too comfortable doing it anyway...he gets a bit embarrassed by things like that.

          I'll wear a garter, but no garter toss.  It'll really just be for the pictures of me getting ready, and I'm sure it'll show in our TTD photos the next morning.

           

          The bouquet toss, I'm undecided on.  I've caught the bouquet at two weddings, the first of which there were a whopping 3 of us standing there for it (at a 200+ guest wedding!).  I never felt awkward, being singled out b/c we were single, but I could tell the other women standing by me (at both weddings) did.

            I love the idea of giving the bouquet to the longest married couple!  It could turn awkward for us, though.  The longest married couple would be my parents, if they come, and I'm not close to them at all, so it would feel weird shining a light on them for any reason.  If they don't come, the longest married couple would be FI's dad & second wife, which could be embarrassing for FI's mother.  Not sure it would work for us, but it's a lovely concept, especially for those who will have grandparents they are close to at the wedding.

              I'm not doing the garter toss (FI doesn't know that yet :P ), I'm REALLY not into having him down there in front of anyone. I'm 50/50 on the bouquet toss.... I guess I'll decide once we're there...the bouquet might be too pretty and I might want to keep it

                I am not doing a garter/ bouquet toss either as we will only have 1 single male and 1 single female, and I really don't like the idea of my FI going up under my dress in front of my parents/grandparents. I will have a garter--more for a keepsake really. I have never heard of giving the bouquet to the couple that has been together the longest. That is such a great idea. My grandparents will be the couple that has been together the longest and I think they will feel so special if we do that for them! Thanks for the idea!
