I always planned to skip the bouquet toss. As a wedding guest, I hate awkwardly running out on the floor, pretending like I care, or getting shoved out there if I try to hang back and skip the whole deal. And as the bride, I feel like there's something sort of demeaning about making your single friends desperately clamber all over each other like they just can't wait to get married. It’s a little unbecoming.
But, um. My venue has a Juliet balcony:
And I LOVE the idea of getting to stand up there and throw the bouquet. Just look at these pics (both actually are at my venue)
So without a second of hesitation, the bouquet toss is now in. I will totally admit I completely backed away from what I still think has a cheesy meaning just to get a picture op. Hopefully the ladies at my wedding don't have the same feelings I did (do?) on the bouquet toss. Because this balcony thing is so happening!
(And hey, it’s not like I’m asking my MOH to give her speech up there!)
What did you say you'd never do, then promptly changed your mind on?
