->''Then came time for the bouquet toss. Or as it is to my mother, her last, best hope to match off one of her single, pathetic daughters. I didn't so much catch it as prevent it from smashing into my face. But I figured my mum probably paid off Ellen Gibson to throw it directly at me. I wonder how much my misery is worth to my mother.''

* In the epilogue of ''Anime/ValvraveTheLiberator'' of all things - caught by [[spoiler: [[DefeatMeansFriendship A-drei]],]] who's implied to be in a relationship with [[spoiler: Saki]] ([[AllThereInTheManual there, and in the audio dramas]]). His reaction is precious.

* In ''IslandInTheSeaOfTime'', after the wedding of the town police chief and the librarian we see type three of this trope when a ButchLesbian coast guard captain sees it flying at her face and grabs it on reflex. Guess who gets talked flat by the pre-British princess half her age within a month or so.[[/folder]]

* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'', at Scott and Jean's wedding, Rogue catches the bouquet, due to the advantage of being able to fly. (Gambit proceeds to use his powers to make damn sure he's the one who winds up with the garter.)

* In one ''VideoGame/MarioParty 5'' minigame, a newlywed Koopa bride throws a bouquet into the air... followed by a bunch of flowers falling from the sky, which the players must collect. The winner (or winners if there's a tie) will receive ten coins and have the actual bouquet(s) fall into their hands.
* In ''VideoGame/MitsumeteKnight'', this is one of Sue Grafton's Special Events. She's ''[[SeriousBusiness very]]'' happy when she catches it, [[LoveFreak as she desperately wants to have a lovely husband]] and fears becoming a ChristmasCake.
* In one of ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChroniclesIII'''s endings, the elderly [[BadassGrandma Gloria]] is the one to catch the bouquet at [[spoiler:Kurt's and Riela]]'s wedding, much to the chagrin of the other women.

In fiction, the bouquet toss's predictive powers are almost infallible, although how this plays out depends on how much time there is left in the story. If it happens at the beginning or middle of a work, the character who caught the bouquet will almost certainly get married by the end. If the wedding is the HappilyEverAfter ending of the entire work, the character who caught the bouquet will probably [[HeldGaze catch the eye]] of someone they've had some prior romantic tension with, implying that they'll soon tie the knot.


Added DiffLines:

** The predictive powers of the bouquet toss are not to be trifled with -- in ''[[Recap/EighthDoctorAdventuresGrimmReality Grimm Reality]]'', the Doctor catches a bouquet. In [[Recap/EighthDoctorAdventuresTheAdventuressOfHenriettaStreet the next book]], he gets married.
