* 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.

* In one episode of ''{{Rugrats}},'' the babies have wandered off (of course) during a relative's wedding. Stu and Didi wander into another wedding looking for them, and Stu accidentally catches the bouquet. Didi throws it back, yelling "He's already married!" Bridesmaid pile-up ensues, of course.

* ''Film/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' culminates in the wedding of Tiana and Naveen [[spoiler:as humans]], and when Tiana tosses her bouquet from the wedding car, a throng of girls try to catch it - only to be completely outdone by the marriage-and-princess obsessed Charlotte.

* Being about a wedding, ''Ghosts of Girlfriends Past'' ends with the bride tossing the bouquet. It's caught by [[spoiler:Keiko, [[BrickJoke the Asian archer who hasn't shown up since the beginning of the movie]], who shoots it out of the air.]]
