12 People Who Tried Way, Way Too Hard To Catch The Bouquet At A Wedding
Wedding days are filled with weird rituals and superstitions that people don't entirely understand but go along with anyway because their grandparents are coming from out of town and would be disappointed to attend a reception that didn't feature the Chicken Dance.
Of course, this is far from the only inexplicable tradition you'll encounter as more and more of your friends decide they're fine with being boring the rest of their lives.
For example, the groom should avoid seeing the bride before the ceremony if he doesn't want to turn to stone for eternity, and rain on your wedding day means someone is going to talk about Alanis Morissette's poor understanding of irony.
However, if we're ranking wedding rituals by the sheer amount of adrenaline involved, it's hard to top the bouquet toss, the magical moment when the most recently married woman in the room tosses a bunch of flowers in the general direction of a group of single girls hoping to follow suit.
Most people don't take this part of the reception too seriously, but there are always at least one or two people who have far too much faith in the magical properties of tightly bundled roses and baby's breath.
I'm not exactly sure what was going through the heads of these women when these pictures were taken, but I imagine it was an image of the beautiful future they're going to have with the man of their dreams thanks to their above average bouquet snagging abilities.
