I’m always the bouquet catcher, never the bride. I think I have caught at least 20 bouquets in my day, but have never been married myself. I have the technique down to a Science guaranteeing a 95% success rate of catching that bouquet. Trust me on this one, catching the bouquet does not mean you’ll be the next to throw one.
OK! Here’s the secret. Stand in the front, middle of that crowd of girls. More times than not, the bouquet will be thrown straight back. Try to make sure there is at least 10 feet of space in front of you. If you’re in the front of the crowd and tall enough, you should be able to reach up and grab that bouquet before anyone else has a chance to blink. The key is to be ready.
Remember the odds, 95% throw straight back, 5% throw like girls. Trust me!
