6 fun ideas for the bridal bouquet toss
In a traditional wedding, tossing the bridal bouquet means that the single woman who catches it will be the next one to marry. Today, all those single ladies love to catch the wedding bouquet, not because they believe that they will be the next person to tie the knot, but because they like the idea of having something that belongs to the bride. To make the bridal bouquet toss even more special, be inspired by these fun ideas.
1. Create a special moment for the kids
If there are going to be a lot of kids at the wedding, prepare a special moment for them during the bridal bouquet toss. Before the bride tosses her wedding bouquet, toss a teddy bear or another smaller bouquet of flowers just for the children to catch. They’ll not only love it, but it will also be a sweet moment for picture taking.
2. Include everyone
Instead of limiting the bridal bouquet toss to the single women, why not include all the guests? It will be a wonderful and very fun moment to incorporate into the wedding reception.
3. Just the guys
Do you want spectacular photographs and a truly entertaining moment? Then, instead of tossing the wedding bouquet to the single ladies, toss it to all the single guys. It will definitely be an unforgettable and very fun bridal bouquet toss!
Traditionally, the groom tosses the bride’s garter to the single guys and the bride tosses the wedding bouquet to the single ladies. Why not switch everything up? The groom can toss the wedding bouquet to the single ladies and the bride can toss her garter to the single guys. How fun and original is that?
5. Play fun music
Any moment is always more dramatic with a soundtrack playing in the background, so choose a fun song to play during the bridal bouquet toss. Something like the theme song from Mission Impossible or “It’s Raining Men” by the Weather Girls, will be perfect to get everyone racing for the wedding bouquet. Pure entertainment and a great addition to the wedding movie!
6. Add a prize to the wedding bouquet
If you want everyone to participate in the bridal bouquet toss, than add a prize to it! Ask the DJ to announce the tossing of the bouquet and the prize associated to it: it could be a cash reward, a dance with the bride or groom… When it’s time, have the DJ announce what is going to happen, what the prize is, play some music to add suspense and then watch all the guests, men and women, scramble to catch the wedding bouquet.
