There are several things to consider when deciding if you want to toss the bouquet and garter.
Many of our couples are unsure if they want to do the bouquet and garter toss. There are several things to consider when deciding if you want to toss the bouquet and garter.
Do you have single woman and men attending your wedding that will participate?
Do you want to toss your bouquet or have a smaller version made to toss? Having a smaller replica of your bouquet is a nice idea so you can keep and preserve your bouquet.
Do you want to wear a garter on your wedding day or put in on before the toss? Either one is acceptable, it is what makes you the most comfortable on your wedding day.
Will there be children or teens that may participate? If so, you may not want to do the garter up the thigh tradition if the age differences between the two guest that catch your bouquet and garter is significant and would make someone uncomfortable. This can be decided the day of the wedding if you are unsure of this aspect of the bouquet and garter toss tradition. You do not have to do this part of the bouquet and garter toss, you can just toss the bouquet and garter and skip the garter up the thigh tradition if this makes you uncomfortable.
Will this burn too much of my dancing time? On average the bouquet and garter toss will take 15-30 minutes depending on how many singles are participating and how long it takes them all to gather on the dance floor.
If you decide to toss the bouquet and garter try to toss it up and back, above your guests heads. This is a great shot for your photographer!
No matter what you decide to do remember, it is YOUR wedding day,relax and have fun!
