A Non-Traditional Wedding Bridal Bouquet Toss

My fiancé and I were not big on tradition…no cake cutting/feeding frenzy, no garter toss and the one that I think surprised everyone … no bridal bouquet toss!!!

When people heard that we were planning a non-traditional wedding, they immediately thought we were either going to have an outrageous wedding or that our wedding would not be personable. Well, that could be true for some weddings, but I believe the trick is to incorporate elements into your wedding that are special to you and your soon to be husband or wife, not necessarily just because it is a “tradition” and people expect it! Remember, it is your day and you should be able to enjoy every aspect of your wedding!

Off The Beaten Path

Instead of a bridal bouquet toss, I opted for a “direct hand-off” to my Maid of Honor! I worked with our coordinator to have a hand written letter and my bouquet at my Maid of Honor’s seat when she arrived at the reception.

The letter read:

… because I love you so dearly, instead of tossing my bouquet, I wanted to give it directly to you. You are an exceptional woman and you are so deserving of an amazing man! I have been so blessed to find true love and I pray the same happens for you …

A Non-Traditional Wedding Bridal Bouquet Toss

My Maid of Honor (and best friend) was so touched by this small sentiment … it was something so intimate that only she and I shared. It was a very special moment for us and I will always treasure the warm hug and tears we shared afterward.
