Weddings are a formal occasion, and they come with many ceremonies & traditions.  When most people think of a wedding, the only “ceremony” that comes to mind is the actual marriage ceremony.

However, there are actually many “ceremonies” that take place throughout the days festivities.

Today, we are taking a look at the ceremony of the Garter & Bouquet.

There is tradition behind the ceremonial removal of the Garter, and the tossing of the Bouquet & Garter to the single men & women in attendance.

However, tradition does not make it a requirement for every wedding reception.

It is the Bride & Grooms choice whether to do a ceremonial Garter & Bouquet toss

Or skip it entirelyPro Sound & Light Show

When choosing to do a Garter removal & Bouquet toss, having it at the right time is very important.

Scheduling it too early in the night or too late in the night can have an impact on guest involvement, energy level, and engagement.

Pro Sound & Light Show recommends building up the anticipation to the ceremony, making the whole event fun & memorable.

Above all, the Garter Removal should be tasteful & family friendly.
