The Real Reason Behind The Traditional Bouquet Toss
Thu 28-04-2016

One of the favorite moments for ladies at weddings is the bouquet toss, when all the unmarried ladies form a line and try catching the bouquet.

It's an English tradition which has been passed down through the generations and is supposed to represent the passing on of good fortune from the bride to a single lady.

According to WeddingWire, when this first took off the guests would be invited to try and tear pieces of the bride's dress or clothing and flowers to get some of this good fortune. In order for her to get away intact, she would throw the bouquet at them as a means to distract them.

The single lady who caught it would then get some of the good fortune and would be next in line to marry.
