I wore it.  Mostly because I wanted to have the option to do the garter business if I changed my mind, but we didn’t end up doing it.  I still wore it all night.

I don’t think it’d be weird at all. I’m planning on doing the same! I really didn’t want to do the whole ‘groom goes on adventures up my dress’ awkwardness, but I like the look of garters.

I still wore one, but only because I already had one from prom, and it was blue so it was my something blue.

I still wore one. I hadn’t planned on buying one, but my mom bought it when wasn’t with her. I don’t think it’s weird to wear one if you want.

ME! I got this gorgeous Florrie Mitton garter and didn’t want to toss it, but knew that I would want to wear it and have pictures of me putting it on. I don’t think it’s weird (and no one seemed to miss the garter toss) and the pictures turned out great!

I wore it, and we didn’t do a garter toss!  It was fine.  We did a couple pictures and that was it.

I wore one and did not do the toss.  We also skipped the bouquet toss as there were almost no “Single” people at my wedding.

I wore one and didn’t do a garter toss. I also don’t think its weird – no one will really know except those in the room with you when you get married. I wore one because DH thinks they’re sexy.

I am wearing one, as it’s part of my something old – my mom made it from material from her wedding dress.  🙂

I am sure we’re not having a garter toss though.

I’m wearing one because it is “traditional” and I want the whole “bridal experience” but Im super modest and neither my FI or I like tons of attention, so we will not be doing the removal or toss. I’m contemplating even tossing a bouquet.

Yup! I bought a super special customized garter as an “inside joke” to me and FI… no garter toss here though! I’m pleasantly surprised at all the other “yes”‘s on here!
