Wedding Songs, Advice from a Birmingham Wedding Venue Owner: Bouquet Toss

For nearly one hundred years, brides have been tossing their bouquets in historic Woodrow Hall!

Based upon the belief that having a piece of the bride’s wedding dress was a lucky charm, brides several hundreds of years ago started to through the bouquet backwards as they ran away! Thus the bouquet became the good luck charm for any one catching it. There is also a belief that the person catching it would be the next girl married. It has been a fun tradition for hundreds of years.

Traditionally, unmarried ladies gather around and the bride looks away and tosses the bouquet over her head. Remember to let the photographer signal the event as this is a fun action shot for your wedding photo album!
