somehow, i feel like things i would never consider to be on the radar start to blip as i close my eyes to sleep. this is the case with the garter. there are about a thousand different ones i saw today and they are all very cute. however, we are not doing the garter toss and it’s not something i would normally wear. so after spending a lot of time (you can imagine) on etsy, i thought to myself, ‘is this really necessary’? maybe i’m just weary of all of the little ways i am leaking money for the wedding. maybe i’ve lost perspective. or maybe i just need sleep.
is this something you consider to be an important part of your big day?

Like you I considered wearing a garter, but in the end decided not to wear one. I didnt miss it the day of, and I’m glad I didn’t buy one.

Well, if you aren’t doing a garter toss, then there probably isn’t a point to wearing one. I did have a garter toss, so I wore two of them. I bought them from The GarterMaker and I chose the two garter option so I could have a nice one as a keepsake and one to toss. The nice one also served as a something blue:

I’m wearing one. I made one myself. It’s not super fancy or anything but it came out to $2 for each. Yes, one’s a "keepsake" but mostly it was a practice. I feel like I need one, no matter what! Sometimes i’m hell bent on traditions

I won’t be doing a toss but I still will wear one. It is mostly for my groom-to-be anyway. I will probably get a laugh out of him for it but he will love it!

I actually just started looking for garters yesterday on Etsy. I wasn’t sure if my fiance would want to do the garter toss, though. I just asked and he said, "If I’m going to be crawling around on the floor blindfolded and sticking my head up your dress, it’s going to be for something better than a garter." Ha! I guess I won’t be wearing one!

We’re not doing a garter toss, so all along I hadn’t planned to buy one. Now that I’m thinking about it though, it still might be sexy for the Mr. and some pictures. Dang, put something back on the list…

We’re not doing a garter toss, but my Bridesmaids gave me a University of Michigan garter to wear as my something blue. I know my fiance will get a kick out of it, so I’ll probably wear it. 🙂

We aren’t doing a garter toss, but I bought one anyways. I bought it to be my "something blue" but I might have another something blue…
I am still undecided if I will wear it or not… but at least I have it if I want to wear it.

We’re doing a garter toss. I have two. A keepsake and a throw-away. I got mine off Ebay. It’s my ‘something blue’, and camo/deer for FI. He thought it was "awesome". I thought it was kinda cute, and different. This is the only piece camo that I’m wearing.

No, I feel like it would be so itchy!

I am not doing the garter toss!!!!!! No way. I’m too shy for that, I would probably pass out or something.
What else is it worn for? I realy don’t think it would be all that comfy …
