Ok, maybe this is a silly question, but exactly how high are you ladies going to wear your garter when your new hubby takes it off you? It seems like there are 2-3 options. 1) Just above the knee 2) ALL the way at the top of the thigh, like right next to your pantyline or 3) somewhere in the middle (though I worry it would drift down.)
If you put it ALL the way up there, can everyone tell where his hand is as he takes it off? My first instinct is to put it there, since it’s sexy, but I worry that others will be able to see him basically feeling me up and be grossed out. Also, if he puts his head up under my skirt, that is WAY too high for him to go! Maybe it’s better if you tell him to reach up the middle and not use his teeth until he gets it to your knee?

I’m not normally a super modest person but this garter thing is freaking me out. Mostly because my grandparents and great-grandparents are going to watch my new husband disappear under my dress.
I think I’m going to put it mid-thigh, closer to the knee. I do think that if you put it up super high maybe having him pull it down with his hand a bit first is a good idea.

I put mine just above my knee … you can tell if it is higher as a guest and that is a little nasty to me …

Please, please do not use teeth and do not dive head first under the dress. It is so awkward for your guests… nobody wants to see that. I would place the garter no higher than mid-thigh and have him take it off with his hands (quickly and without rummaging around under your skirt). Go for playful rather than sexy. Again, raunchy is not appropriate in front of your dad and grandparents.

I put mine just above my knee, and my husband got it with his teeth. I sat like a lady, kicked that leg in the air and held the upper part of my skirt down with my hands . His head was never really close to my crotch, it was playful, and I don’t think even my middle-eastern relatives found it weird or inappropriate. We were surrounded by the younger guests anyway, older ones stayed seated away for the most part.
I’m putting a demonstration photo, sorry if anyone’s offended or grossed out by it!

I put mine *below* my knee! hehe I think just above the knee is fine but I wanted to be extra modest 😉

I think it’s funny when they take it off with the teeth. All weddings I have been to seem to get a kick out of it. This makes me wonder though… I am having a hoop skirt under my dress. How the heck is that going to happen?
