Czech term or phrase: Preco nechodit na svadby
a phrase at a wedding, as the bouquet was tosses
ron somerville
English translation:Why not go to weddings
Explanation:
The original sentence is in Slovak, not Czech.

I believe that bouquet tossing is a U.S. tradition. Czechs (or Slovaks) do not toss them, unless they want to emulate U.S. wedding.

The bouquet was tossed to the single women at the wedding. The one who caught would be the next bride.

Infortunately, for the one who caught it, as she jumped up, her strapless gown didn't go as high as she did.
