Washington: A woman from Utah has claimed that she made record for catching most bridal bouquetsat weddings and now wants to make things official.
Jamie Jackson from Salt Lake City has submitted an application to Guinness World Records, saying she has broken the 2004 record of Stephanie Monyak of Pennsylvania of catching 11 bouquets, as she had caught 46 since 1996, and has the documentation to prove it, Fox News reported.
Jackson, who claims to have attended about 100 weddings over the years, joked that it started out as a hobby but turned into "her sport," and her strategy was to stand right in the front.
She added that she had had to jump for a lot of catches and had accidentally ended up hitting kids in the process too.
Jackson said she had tracked down the brides whose bouquets she caught to obtain documentation and photos and was happy to know that 44 of the 46 brides were still married, calling herself a "good luck charm."
She also said that she didn't believe in the myth that a woman who catches a bouquet was next one to get married and that it was nothing more than a fun custom.
