Your boyfriend is ridiculous! It doesn't mean you HAVE to be the next to marry. It's just a fun tradition. In my opinion, he's not worth it anyway.
Don't forget that it's also "tradition" for the lady that catches the bouquet to have the guy that catches the garter put it on her thigh. I once went to a wedding and the girlfriend of the garter catcher slapped her boyfriend, (in front of everyone!) when she felt he was disrespectful for going too high up the bouquet catcher's leg. They broke up that night.
I noticed not every wedding has that, though. Most of the weddings I went to just threw the bouquet, and that was it. If he is being rude for that reason, I can understand, but if it's just because he thinks you have to be the next to marry, he's just an asshole.
Don't judge too quickly... we don't know how long they've been together, or even if they want to get married. Marriage can go sideways fast... better to be patient than rush into things!
