As this beautiful cluster of roses arcs through the air, it disintegrates into a shower of petals, stems, confetti and the occaisonal high velocity thorn.

       Well, not so hard to do. ... I wonder why you thought of this idea?

       //What could be more romantic than exploding flowers?// - quite a lot, I should imagine.

       I thought of this because I found out that it is now common for couples to keep their bouquet and throw a different one for the guests to catch (especially given how expensive - indeed, how heavy - a bouquet of 60 roses is).   

       "But, that's just stupid," I protested. "You might as well blow the thing up!"

       I'd like a dozen, no make it 2, no 3 dozen - make sure the glass is breakable and the thorns are on, though... +

       Can I get some high-yield extra-thorny roses for my ex? [+]

       I like the idea of a skeet / thrown bouquet combo. Maybe at a hillbilly wedding?

       A bouquet patterned in the shape of a hubcap. Perfect.

       I particularly like [bungston]'s skeet idea... yeehaw!

       It was a hand grenade Nasturtium, and as she pulled off the last petal there was a faint click. "He loves me not..."
