I almost never read Dear Abby, but I do care about dumb traditions thoughtlessly perpetuated at weddings. Here's a good idea from an Abby correspondent about what to do instead of throwing the bouquet and fishing for the garter:

Dear Abby: I have been a caterer for more than 20 years. A classy alternative is this one: The bridal couple asks all married guests to stand. Then, in multiples of five or 10 years, they are asked to sit down when asked the length of their marriage. The couple married the longest is awarded the bouquet and garter to the applause of everyone.
