It is has been tradition for the Bride to Toss the Bouquet as she leaves for her honeymoon, (Signifying the recipient to be the next one married)

We feel that if removing the garter may offend any of your guests, you should consider omitting the garter routine and stick with tossing the bouquet as you leave for your honeymoon.

However, some clients have the "Bouquet and Garter Routine" go like this.

  1. We call the Newly Weds to the dance floor
  2. The Bride is seated, the groom removes the garter
  3. We call all the single women out to the dance floor
  4. The Bride tosses the bouquet*
  5. We call all the single guys out to the dance floor
  6. The Groom tosses the garter
  7. *Recipient seated, garter goes on right leg.

Over the years, this routine has become questionable with Parents, Grandparents and most of all, the eyes of the Church.

Here are our suggestions on how to "tone this down".

  1. The groom can Remove the Garter in a private location. Then the bride and groom can toss together.
  2. Have the couple that catches the bouquet and garter lead a special dance that immediately follows.
