Speaking of Tossing Things....

What about the garter? We're definitely not going to do the whole garter removal & toss thingie but what about wearing one? I haven't spoken to J about how she feels about it but I'm definitely leaning towards wearing one. They're just too pretty to pass up. I've spent hours scouring over Etsy looking at tons of gorgeous garters like this one from GarterLady.

So what do you guys think? Are you doing the garter toss? Is it ok to wear one that won't really be seen by anyone but us?

We are also skipping the garter toss [ew], but would have no qualms about wearing one. Though I've heard that they can slip down unless tourniquet tight, making it much less appealing to me!

We won't be doing a garter toss. I have visions of "Let's Get It On" being played and the boy removing it with his teeth and that just sounds extremely uncomfortable to me.

BUT I think they are pretty too{and very sexy}! If you find one you like, I say go for it.

The one you have there is super cute!And you should totally wear one if you want too, who cares that only the two of you know its there, your the two who matter ;)

Oh that is too pretty NOT to wear!

And don't worry about not doing a garter toss. I have known a few brides (although these brides married men) who did not do that garter tradition. I don't know if they wore garters, but that's between them and their husband, right? ;)

I don't think anyone will care if you omit the garter toss. There might be mild disappointment from those two people who love that tradition, but no one else will mind!

In fact, I don't think anyone will notice - especially if you do a dual-bouquet toss!

OBVS. Wear that. Don't even hesitate. :) It's a nice way to foreplay all night before you lock yourselves away in the Bridal(s) suite. ;)
