The bouquet toss is a wedding reception tradition for many brides. It's often paired with a garter toss by the groom, a tradition that pre-dates the bouquet toss [source: WedAlert.com]. Don't forget to get action photos of the tosses, including any amusing mishaps that could happen when hands go up to catch the prize. For the best shots, the photographer should consider a using a high shutter speed and continuous shooting for lots of clear photos of the toss.

After the bouquet and garter are tossed, have the lucky recipients pose for a photo together, too. Some couples encourage the garter's recipient to place the garter on the bouquet's recipient as another sign of good luck. This often-amusing event can create another great photo opportunity.
