The Throwing of the Bouquet and Garter

January 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

 

The reception holds many rituals carried over from past generations and cultures. The throwing of the bridal bouquet first began as throwing the bride's garter in 14th Century France. The removal was not easy or graceful. Finally, one bride gave up and threw her bouquet instead. And the rest, as you know, is history. The tradition has evolved into the groom now throwing the garter to eligible bachelors.
