Something you might not have thought about at such an early age is the wedding bouquet toss and the good fortune it brings upon your single friends!
What song will you choose? Will it be in the mix of your fun dance songs or will it be beforehand to get everyone on the dance floor during the wedding reception?

Not to worry, bouquet toss comes naturally and is one of the most exciting parts of the night, because it's a moment just for you and your girls. Modern weddings are all about fun and laughter and what's best to capture both then the bouquet and garter toss?
The bouquet toss is a timeless tradition where the single female guests line up behind the bride to catch the bouquet aka superstition fabric. Rumor has it that the lady who catches this magical bouquet is surely to be the next to wed and is filled with good luck.
