At some the end of some weddings, a bouquet is tossed to a crowd of happy singletons. Right? Often though, when a DJ turns up the Beyonce and puts out the call, eligible folks disappear into the woodwork. When I was on wedding attendant duty, I always found that was a perfect time to sprinkle rose petals in the honeymoon suite. Honestly, unmarried people want nothing to do with this archaic tradition.
Fear not, Newlyweds! You can ceremonially dispose of flowers without setting your single friends’ teeth on edge. Try this: instead of throwing your flowers at someone, which is a little hostile when you think about it, GIVE them to a person you wish to honor. Grandma, Honor Attendant, childhood best friend, you pick. We at MLFS even make you a “toss” bouquet so you can keep your own gorgeous bouquet for yourself!
I’m betting you have a guest who’d be thrilled with a special posy. And trust me, there are singles who will be thrilled with not having their marital status paraded around the dance floor.
Be well, and love well.
