Why “Cat Toss” Is The Perfect Substitute For A Bouquet Toss At A Wedding!

A bride and groom throw a cat plushie for the "cat toss" at their wedding. Guests stand at a distance behind them, getting ready to catch the cat.

If you love animals and plan on getting married anytime soon, might I suggest this purrfect alternative to a bouquet toss? Rather than throwing flowers behind your back so that a single lady can find out if she’s next in line to be married, you could do a “cat toss” — don’t worry, no real cats are tossed, just a cat plushie!

A real-life example of this fun alternative can be seen on TikTok. This couple had anyone who attempted to catch the cat plushie agree to adopt a cat if they succeeded. And with the help of FairyTail Pet Care, there were plenty of adorable cats to choose from right at the reception!

Not only did guests at this wedding, quite literally, dive at the chance for this pawsitively awesome opportunity, but two cats found their furever homes that night. What a fun way to celebrate your marriage and help out some four-legged friends!

Watch this couple’s wedding guests have a blast with “cat toss” in hopes of adopting one of their own in the video below.
