Your wedding photos are not only a great way to preserve the enchantment of your wedding day, but they also turn out to be some of the most fun and often humorous times of your wedding day.
While you certainly want to include the standard wedding photo shots such as spontaneous shots of the first time that the bride and groom see each other on their wedding day, snapshots of the cute flower girls and ring bearers walking down the aisle as well as photos of the entire wedding party, it’s also a fun idea to get in a few creative and unusual wedding photo shots as well.
The bridal bouquet toss is certainly fertile ground for imaginative and often humorous wedding photo shots. While considered to be going out of style by some, the practice of tossing the bridal bouquet is still a favorite choice by many brides.
In early times it was considered lucky to get a fragment of the bride’s clothing. Female wedding guests used to try to rip pieces of the bride’s dress and flowers in order to obtain some of that good luck. To escape from the crowd the bride would toss her bouquet and run away. Today the bouquet is tossed to single women with the belief that whoever catches it will be the next to marry.
The tradition of the bouquet toss may slowly be fading, according to some wedding planning experts. And for good reason — we totally understand why some brides aren’t keen on asking their unmarried friends to elbow each other over a bunch of flowers.
But doing away with the tradition entirely would mean losing out on some very entertaining wedding photos. Below are 17 bouquet toss moments that deserve to be remembered.
