So just because you made the catch doesn’t mean you are a catch. Maybe you seemed too thirsty during the bouquet toss? Throwing elbows at little girls isn’t sexy.
Yeah. Saw a woman dive over a widowed grandma in a wheelchair, knocking her to the ground, to make an Odell Beckham, Jr.-like catch of the bouquet. It was ugly!
Let’s see, what if those men are single because that’s their life choice at this time? Then why would you expect them to suddenly change their minds because somebody tossed a garter? OP, I understand that this was embarrassing and humiliating to you. I think that whole tradition is an absurd anachronism of the bridal bouquet and the garter toss. If you take part in such a thing you run the chance of it not coming out the way you want.
When I was a little girl, I caught the bouquet. I was about eight. The boy who caught the garter was about twelve. There was no dance, but he had to put the garter on me. There wasn’t a dance, but everyone there was laughing about how cute it was because the ‘new couple’ was so young. I guess when it’s with adults, it isn’t just cute and a wedding tradition, and it becomes more of a ‘oh my god, what if I actually start dating this girl now?’ Fun traditions gradually become paranoia and superstition to some people. Sorry OP.
