If you’ve never been to a wedding, let us educate you on one rather outdated tradition – the bouquet throwing. The bride will stand alone and chuck her flowers as the guests and bridesmaids stand behind her attempting to catch it.
It’s a good sign of things to come for the lucky lady. But potentially not for her partner (who may have no intention of getting married).
Yes, this is the hilarious moment a man does a runner after seeing his girlfriend catch a bride’s wedding bouquet. The male guest was caught on camera running for his life after realising he might be next to get hitched.
In the footage, he can be seen legging it moments after newly-weds Chelsea and Matt Best tied the knot in Kettering, Northants., on Saturday.
The women can be seen barging each other out of the way to try and get hold of the bouquet before it’s caught by Rachel Besley, who is wearing an orange gown. Clearly overjoyed, Rachel jumps for joy until her boyfriend, Daniel Gilbert, decides to run for the hills.
According to Reader’s Digest, the traditional gesture was originally a deterrent. The bride would toss her bouquet as a distraction to stop people trying to touch her and rip the gown off. Bet you weren’t expecting that.
