How many bouquets does a bride actually need.

Im bringing this up because.. Im some what confused.. Initially i thought I was only going to need to bouquets.. Mine to keep and the one you toss..


On my trip out to Mexico i attended a couple weddings and some brides had any where from 3-4 bouquets...


How many are you really suppose to have for a catholic ceremony.?????

I am just going to have one. I don't plan on keeping the bouquet, I just do't have the space, so I am going to toss the same one I carry. It's really up to you, I have heard of brides that don't carry bouquets (Milania trump) instead a rosary.

I'm just having 2....one for me and one to use for the anniversary dance. When we met with the florists they mentioned the Blessed Mary presentation and will do a small arrangement for me to take up but nothing the size of a bouquet. Hope that helps!

Probably just one.  I don't know what I'm going to do with a bunch of dead, crackly flowers after the wedding.  I'd rather see it get torn up on the dance floor by crazy ladies. ;D  It's worth the memory!


The pictures of the bouquet from the photogs will be good enough for me. :D

I'm only having 1. I'm having a Catholic ceremony but I don't consider the flowers for Mary to be my bouquet. I'm also making my toss bouquet out of silks. I figure that because most of my guests are from out of town, I will pay $50 for a bouquet that someone will just leave in a hotel....heck no lol. You can take home the silk bouquet for a souvenir lol.

also, I know a lot of people just use a BM's bouquet as the toss bouquet.  That's probably what I'll end up doing.

1 bouquet. I wasn't going to do a toss boquet but my floral designer includes it free for brides, so that was a come-up :)

My daughter will have 2.  One will be a "toss bouquet" and the other (her actual wedding bouquet) she will put on his lola's (grandmother's) grave the following day.  He was very close to his grandmother.
