Creative Toss Bouquet Ideas

Tossing the bouquet symbolizes one of the most fun and beloved bridal traditions of a wedding reception, saying good-bye to the single life. The bouquet toss rituals dates back to the 14th century when wedding guests tore the clothes off a bride for luck and in modern times evolved to the safer practice of throwing flowers. Custom dictates that all the single women gather in a group and whoever catches the bouquet is the next to be wed. The throwing of the bouquet takes place after the cutting of the wedding cake. Read on for creative toss bouquet ideas.

Surprise Inside

Up the ante of your bouquet toss by including a hundred dollar bill, lottery tickets or a gift certificate hidden inside the toss bouquet. Make a breakaway toss bouquet, a bouquet composed of three to four smaller bouquets. By untying the ribbon on your breakaway bouquet, flowers go everywhere providing a fun opportunity for more singles to take home a floral memento.

Candy Bouquet

Sweeten the pot with a candy toss bouquet, composed of sweets for the sweet singles. Make your candy bouquet from an assortment of lollipops and candy sticks available at specialty candy stores including whirly pops, tootsie pops, Dum Dum pops, Blow pops, unicorn pops, flower-shaped lollipops, old-fashioned striped stick candy, Honeystix, Pixie stix and rock candy sticks.

Teddy Bear Toss

Delight the kids at your wedding reception with a teddy bear toss, a great way to involve the little ones. Buy a cute cuddly teddy bear dressed in a bridal gown and veil or tuxedo bow. Gather all the children at your reception and toss to the tiny reaching hands. Helpful tip, have a back-up basket of small novelty bears to give to the rest of the children who did not catch the teddy bear and to avert possible tears.

Role Reversal

Toss your bouquet to the guys and remove a garter from the groom in a reversal of roles. Gather all the guys, married and single, for role reversal fun and throw the bouquet to a man to give to a lucky lady. This is an option for a wedding that does not have many single people present. Complement this offbeat tradition with the bride removing a garter from the arm or leg of the groom.

Bouquet Toss Songs

Pump up the energy with entertaining music to play during the tossing of the bridal bouquet. For a tongue-in-cheek bouquet toss atmosphere play songs such as “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls, “Single Ladies” by Beyonce, “Don’t Cha” by the Pussycat Dolls, “Material Girl” by Madonna or the theme from Rocky. Other songs to consider include “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix a Lot, “Shoop Shoop Song” by Cher, “You Can’t Hurry Love” by the Supremes, “Wishin’ and Hopin’” by Dusty Springfield, “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, “Miss Independent” by Kelly Clarkson or “One Way or Another” by Blondie.
