It will be a real enter­tain­ment for guests! Let the friends fight for the title next bride of the year”, using all her charm and, of course, luck.

Treasure under lock and key

You have to hide the bou­quet under lock and key. You can make a real chest, but a nice­ly designed card­board box will do. Just tie it with a beau­ti­ful rib­bon on which you have to hang a pad­lock. Then pre­pare a bunch of keys, in which only one will be suit­able. Ask your friends to choose one key each to free the bou­quet from cap­tiv­i­ty. The own­er of a suit­able key will receive a pre­cious prize!

Bride’s generosity

An option that is less gam­bling, but more roman­tic. It will suit you if there are only a cou­ple of unmar­ried girl­friends at the wed­ding. Make a per­son­al­bou­quet for each of them. Give an acces­so­ry as a sym­bol of ear­ly mar­riage and fam­i­ly hap­pi­ness.

If a you still decid­ed not to change the tra­di­tion and you will throw a bou­quet like many gen­er­a­tions of brides before you, here are some tips:

  • before leav­ing, men­tal­ly wish the girl who caught him hap­pi­ness in her per­son­al life;
  • if your bou­quet has heavy dec­o­ra­tions, take them off just in case;
  • throw the bou­quet over your head;
  • do not rush to imme­di­ate­ly turn around — you nev­er know what will hap­pen behind your back (just kid­ding).

The­day is filled with rit­u­als and tra­di­tions. Choose which ones are pleas­ing to you and fol­low them beau­ti­ful­ly. And those that seem ridicu­lous, feel free to change! This is your hol­i­day and your right. Chan­fash­ion Always near!
