New Years Countdown – Day 6 – Garter & Bouquet Toss

post by matt

There is debate about exactly where the garter and bouquet toss traditions come from. Just do a google search and you’ll see everything from people ripping apart the brides dress to get a piece of her clothing for good luck, to the symbolism of removing the brides virgin status. Anyway you look at it, I’m pretty sure our current system is working great, and the pictures are much more… appropriate. Here are a few of our favorites from this year.
