I need your opinion with a garter issue. I am a hardcore Yankee fan and my fiance just sort of likes them. When I came a cross a beautiful Yankee garter set I couldn’t resist. I bought it. Well, it arrived today and it is just perfect (for me). I showed one of my co-workers and she thinks the garter should be for the groom and that I should have purchased a garter that has his favorite team on it. Now I am totally rethinking this whole Yankee thing. I mean, yes I love it and it’s SO me, but is it wrong to wear it if my fiance doesn’t really like them? I never really thought about the garter being FOR the groom.
So, do I return the Yankee set and get garters that he will like? Do I keep the Yankee set? Do I mix and match my team with his?

Love that garter set!! I think you should do whatever you feel best in. I don’t think it would be weird if you mixed & matched-you could even do the Yankees one if you’ll do a garter toss & his favorite team for the celebration later.
I can’t wait until I look at garters. I’m thinking of doing a Miami Dolphins one for the FI (his favorite team-I could care less) & I’m still deciding if I should just do it for the after party or if it’s what I do the toss in.

Well, as a Boston fan, I would defintely say you should go with HIS team! 🙂

Well, I think you should stick with what you bought =) It’s very cute (I am sports team neutral, so I am looking at just the aesthetics of it, lol) and the one that he will keep (the bigger one) actually is more a subtle look enhanced with the Yankees logo anyway!

No way Jose! I did the same thing as you! I purchased a garter set of my college in thier colors (something blue). My FI did not go there and would never ask me to purchase/ wear one from his college. It’s MY something blue, not HIS something blue. Besides, the whole point is to toss it anyways, it should be something that is meaningful to you.

Let’s be real, does the groom really care about what colors or logo that is written on the garter? And if there was a garter for him to keep, it would just be tossed in a drawer somewhere, plus guys dont know the garter is “for them” I just think they see the garter as something to go “fetch!”

Ask your FI if he cares. He probably doesn’t. If he does, just wear the garter you like and the garter he likes.

Thanks so much for responding ladies! I talked to fiance and he really doesn’t care which team is on the garter. Sooo that solves that! I know that my problem was a little silly, but I’m happy that I can come to Wedding Bee and find my relief! Thanks again!
