Garter and bouquet toss questi

So my FI really wants to do the garter toss, I find it tacky but am obliging him so long as its him and not some switch a roo thing. The problem I recently thought of is I don't think any of our friends (the few that will be there) are single! I had thought about this with the bouquet toss and figured I'd have the Dj do the whole couples by year and the oldest couple gets the bouquet. But what can I do with the garter toss?? Can I combine the bouquet toss and the garter toss into the same thing? Advice suggestions?

If he actually wants to toss the garter and you have no single friends that won't work as I'm sure he knows. You can include it with the plan you have for the bouquet. We are skipping the garter toss but for our bouquet all married couples will dance and our DJ will start eliminating couples by how long they have been married. He will say if you have been married less than 5 years please leave the dance floor and son on. The couple that has been married the longest will get the bouquet. I'm sure the other ladies will have some great suggestions

 I like that idea(giving the bouquet to the couple thats married the longest). I didnt want to throw it neither. but I thought if that was done, I would throw a bouquet made of false flowers, so I can keep mine. not sure if that'll be looked at as cheezy though...

 Linn, people make "toss" bouquets all the time and I will most likely do the same! I want to keep mine whether its real or not. :)

Kim, that's exactly what I was thinking. Maybe I could give the bouquet to the wife and the garter to the husband? 

Any other suggestions?

 Another suggestion is to invite everybody up (not just singles) for the toss and whoever catches it gets a prize! Like a six pack of beer or if non drinkers, a gift card. Etc

I originally didn't want to do the tosses but changed my mind towards the end and I wanted people to actually want to do it so I did prizes :) another past hostess did the same thing and gave me the idea!

 nice idea.

maybe a gift card to a spa or dept store? whatever you choose should be wonderful as the guest wasn't expecting a gift anyway.

 something to also take into consideration:

when you have the dj talk about couples that have been married the longest, also be sure they include widows and widowers.  it may just be that a widow/widower was married longer than any couple that is there.

I like the gift card idea too. We will not be doing a bouquet/garter toss.
