@LincsMama:  At a local costume shop last Halloween I found a sexy black one with a bat on it. It really goes with our Addams Family theme. This is th one we are using for the garter toss. Yea its a little tacky but I think its fun and unique. Smile

But just for my FI I will be wearing a flirty garter belt and knickers set. White with ruffles and bows I think.

@LincsMama:  If I wear stockings, I have to do thigh highs with a garter belt because my hips are not the right shape to support pull-ons. So I’ll probably splurge for a nice, sexy garter belt (probably something like the What Katie Did Harlow garter belt) and stockings (who knows what I’ll do, but probably ones that I can reuse.

Then there’s the whole “my FI loves seeing me in a garter belt” benefit, too. That’s probably my favorite part of them. Least favorite part is going to the restroom with one on, since as far as I can tell, you have to put your thigh highs back on each time – that + huge wedding dress = annoyingly long bathroom times.

@LincsMama:  i bought mine as a ‘try it and see’ – i thought it was pretty but it was super cheap… im plus size so didnt want to splurdge out on something that might not fit!

anyway, it turned up and and it fit like a dream! the only thing i did was add the lock charm and the horseshoe charm that my sister bought me. it was super soft and i completely forgot that i was wearing it! DH LOVED it!! i didnt do a garter toss so it wasnt until that evening that he knew i was wearing it.

@LincsMama:  I wore one but I didn’t have a garter toss or anything either. I basically got it b/c the Chargers are DHs favorite football team!

Mine was only $10….from ebay

Yep, I’ll be wearing one, and we are doing a toss.

I really want a lace one, but I don’t really like the $30 price tag so I think I might make my own!

@LincsMama:  We are not doing a toss, but I will be wearing a garter.  I’m planning on buying it off of Etsy, and I know that my FI will love it 🙂  I’ll be wearing very little in the way of lingerie due to the cut of my dress, so a garter will add something a little fun for after the reception 😉

I had one but didn’t wear it. It was in my bridal bag to put on at the end of the night (as I was wearing nickers/pettipants) but completely forgot!
We didn’t do a garter toss. Neither of us like this tradition.

@LincsMama:  I keep looking at the gorgeous lace ones on etsy. I want a garter but we def wont be doing the toss.

There are some really nice ones that will go perfectly with my dress with crystals and pearls. Its almost a shame the only other person to see it will be my SO.
