second floor to get the cake charms. Team assistants, please round up all the single women and
escort them to the second floor.
(After the cake charms)

Ladies, please stay within the area as we now moving on to the tossing of the bouquet. This
tradition has been done over the years and is meant that whoever catches the bouquet would have
luck and protection. Nowadays, it has simply evolved to imply that whoever caught the bouquet
would be lucky and would be wed next. So now may we ask all the single ladies to occupy the
designated area before you for the ceremonial tossing of the bouquet. The single ladies will form a
