Tossing the Bridal Bouquet

Tossing the Bridal Bouquet

 

By Elton Camp

 

Their wedding vows bride and groom did say

One more task before they make their getaway

 

A tradition that started five hundred years ago

But one that is still considered to be fun though

 

The single ladies are called and all gather about

While the bride throws her bouquet with a shout

 

Because, by tradition, it has jokingly been said

She who catches it will be the next to be wed

 

Macey hoped they won’t see her expanding waist

And she came rushing over with greatest haste

 

The other single girls she brushed right on past

For she had a reason she shouldn’t be wed last

In the original version I included a terrific picture which made the poem fill a page which is the limit that I try to use. There's an astonishing background to the tossing tradition that I would have like to work in somehow. Thanks for reading. Elton
