This week’s wedding inspiration post is all about the garter and bouquet toss. This wedding tradition isn’t always carried out by our brides and grooms, but when it is, it’s a sight to see! With lots of laughs and cheering (and competition) this tradition is always a crowd pleaser. If you are on the fence, here are some great pros of having a garter and bouquet toss:
-It’s Tradition – some guests in attendance are waiting for this moment during your reception. The bouquet toss and, to a lesser extent, the garter toss are benchmarks for the older generations.
-Guests get involved and have fun – If plenty of singles are at your party, the event generates suspense for your wedding guests. Hosting the toss in the midst of your dance party is a great way to get singles to meet on the dance floor. All guests want to feel the thrill of the moment, and professional DJs draw on their experience and follow simple techniques that engage your guests and elevate the excitement of your reception’s most memorable moments.
-Great photo and video opportunity . You can expect great shots of your friends wearing spontaneous smiles. The camera will capture their laughter and looks of surprise, embarrassment and goofiness, as they carry out the traditions of the bouquet and garter toss.
