Start of Games May I have your attention please! I guess by now everyone had their fill of our sumptuous food prepared by Chateau de Busay. We would like to thank the entire staff and crew of this place for the wonderful accommodation and service that they are providing us here.

Bouquet Throw `Ok now its time for a little fun, because its time for the traditional throwing of the Bouquet. For those of you whove seen the running of the bulls at Pamplona,Spain; its a little similar. Theres always a little risk for the lasses determined to get the bouquet in their clutches. Its also the real reason you see so many high heels shoes tonight. As you know, traditionally the young lady who successfully catches the bouquet in mid-flight is a certainty to make her own way down the aisle. Id like to request all the single ladies to step forward for the bouquet throw. The married ladies, whove sneaked on, dont be greedy. This is for single women only. Our lovely and charming bride Harline has been practicing this throw for the entire month, so give yourselves some elbow room.
(To the bride)

Harline, if youd be so kind..

(INSTRUCTIONS: Emcee bravely motions all the single ladies forward)

`Ladies take your place behind the bride and be prepared to jump high. Fortune favors the brave! At the count of three, the bride will throw her bouquet. Ladies and gentlemen, lets all count together. Are you ready Ladies? Would you just look at the concentration? There are some determined women out there. The countdown! One, Two, Three! What a throw, ladies and gentlemen.
(Bride throws the bouquet and it is caught)

We have a winner! Well have the Best Man cleaned and brought to your table later. Garter Toss Ladies and Gentlemen, heres where things get serious. Its time for the Garter toss. I understand some of the guys jumping for the garter have been in training for months. Underneath those coats and barongs, were talking washboard abs, bulging biceps, nerves of steel and these guys are ripped and ready to rumble! Remember gentlemen this is serious business. The guy who catches the garter is destined for the altar next! May we request the groom to retrieve the garter from his wife Now while the groom retrieves the garter, dont let any of those garter jumpers melt into the crowd. We have the garter. Get ready gentlemen.
(Groom throws the garter and it is caught)

We have another winner! We have the next groom. I hope that preacher hasnt left the room. Lets hear it for our winners.

PUTTING THE GARTER ON THE LADYS LEG. Alright, lets have the pair here. Lady, kindly take your seat. Gentleman, you are now going to put the garter on her legs. ( Higher, higher- then kiss is requested ) ( Pictorial with Couple ) Bridal Waltz - First Dance Who among the guests present tonight are already married? Wow, quiet a number... Thank you...
