My girlfriend caught the brides's bouquet?

An hour or so ago, we went to a wedding reception and my girlfriend caught the bride's bouquet. We have both been in a committed relationship for 5+ years but we are 21 and 20, 9 months apart.

Q1: What does catching it, what should it mean?

Q2: How would this affect us as a couple?

  • Its a traditional game so don't think too seriously about it. it shouldn't effect anything. BUT the meaning or story behind it is that if you catch it you're either going to get with someone soon (dating if single or marry if dating) OR you'll fall out of your relationship soon.

    Shes probably not thinking about marrying you anytime soon if that's what you're worried about but shed probably be thinking what's the potential for you guys to stay together. Catching a bouquet gets you thinking about things like these. I'm single and I caught the bouquet at my sisters wedding recently, it didn't bother me because I'm single but delited by the idea that I could find a potential guy soon. Its like a horoscope you read into it because you're interested but you don't 100% believe it.

  • Yeah catching means that she will marry next (of course this is superstition), but so long as she is a sane human being it won't affect you as a couple at all, unless you make a big deal about it that is.

  • Lol it doesn't mean anything don't worry about it. It's just a silly thing they do at weddings and a superstition like Megan said.:)

  • it's a superstition. although being a girl, having caught the bouquet, I'm sure it does put the idea of getting married in her head. I wouldn't think anything of it though. When you/ if you are ever ready to ask her to marry u, you will know. A bouquet does not mean "We have to get married because she caught the bouquet!" Do it on your own time you you feel that it is right.

  • It means she's the next to be married. But It's all superstition. Don't worry about it, and DO NOT let it harm your relationship. And do not let it pressure you into proposing.

  • Traditionally, it means that she is the next to get married, but that's not true. It's superstition.

    It won't affect you if she doesn't take it to seriously either.
