I'm just going to out myself as a wedding grinch.
I really don't like bouquet tosses.
Maybe it's because I've never caught one before. Maybe it's because I think they're humiliating, in general. The garter toss, too. (And really, if you think about it, those guys are all clamoring to catch a piece of the bride's underwear...in front of her entire family.)
Usually, I avoid going out to try and catch the bouquet, but if I'm say, a bridesmaid, I feel obligated. So I stand in the back and nervously eye the other girls to see if they're going to go for it.
This time, though, it was announced and TB asked if I was going to go line up.
"Nope," I said.
"Just go," he said.
So, for some reason, I did. But I still really didn't want the thing.
All the other girls had their hands up, so I raised mine, too.
The bride turned, covered her eyes and threw the flowers DIRECTLY INTO MY LEFT HAND.
I'm not really sure what protocol is regarding these things, but I'm pretty sure catching it and immediately dropping would be bad form.
So I kept it. And....I kinda like that I caught it.
If you haven't gone over to Already Pretty and seen all the ladies who are participating, do it! Everyone looks great and like they're having so much fun!
Since not wearing black is fairly easy for me, I decided to go ahead and not have any black in accessories or clothing (even patterns). We'll see how it goes!
(60/90 to go!)
