Throwing the Bouquet?

This custom has its roots in England. It was believed that the bride could pass along good fortune to others by tossing her bouquet to the single women at the wedding. Tradition says that the single woman who catches the bouquet is the one who will marry next.

Um...nice tradition but I don’t “encourage” this practice with my brides. I do suggest a nice alternative. Presenting a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet to a cherished friend is much more meaningful. Why do I do this? More times than not I’ve seen the bouquet ripped into a million pieces with women sprawled all over the floor with unmentionables showing!

Not a pretty sight!
