As of last night both people who caught the bouquet and garter at our wedding have been engaged(in the 6 months since our wedding). Our friend Ethan took his girlfriend Rebekah(who caught the bouquet) to Natchitoches to a nice dinner and carriage ride and popped the big question. Yay. About two months or so ago my friend Ryan(who caught the garter) proposed to his girlfriend and they are planning to get married this upcoming May.
There has got to be some sort of old wives tale luck if the people who caught your garter and bouquet get engaged that same year.
