04.12.2014 {{Bouquet & Garter Toss}}


No wedding would be complete without the obligatory bouquet and garter toss, right? We decided to to our tosses during the reception in between lots of dancing. I threw my bouquet (well actually I threw a bridesmaid bouquet because my bouquet weighed seven pounds, no lie, and that would really hurt to catch) from the balcony of the barn on site. The barn was located right beside the dance floor and housed the groom's cake as well as our photo booth. 
All my (single) ladies circled up below the balcony aimed for the prize bouquet. After a minute or so of taunting the girls with the bouquet, I turned around backwards and tossed it up in the air. In typical female fashion, it was an all out war fighting to catch that thing.

In the end, one of my sweetest and oldest friends caught the prize. Molly and I have been friends since our early cheerleading days. Her boyfriend was there to witness the catch, so he better be prepping to put a ring on her finger soon! ((Fun fact: She also caught the bouquet at a wedding a few weeks after my wedding. If that's not a sign of a proposal coming soon, then I don't know what is!))
After the bouquet toss I headed over to the dance floor to meet my groom for the garter removal and toss. I wasn't sure Steven would be able to find that thing underneath by twenty layers of dress, but he managed just fine. 
After pulling the garter down my leg and swinging it around a few times, he finally turned around and launched it backwards into the crowd of single guys behind him. The winner of the garter was another dear friend of mine who I have known since elementary school. As you can tell by his dance below, he was very happy to come away with the garter... and maybe soon will be coming away with a wife?!
