We are planning on doing a garter toss. I am wearing a garter for my undergrad alma mater and also a garter for my FI’s undergrad alma mater (colors are blue). He is planning on tossing his. But I was wondering — does he get it back after he tosses it? I know he wants to keep it, but I wasn’t sure if the guy who catches it gets to keep it or if the groom gets it back.

No, you don’t get the garter back after tossing it. You might want to buy a cheap one for the toss that you don’t have to worry about.

Usually people get two garters, the toss away and one to keep. I heard that the groom wears the one that he keeps on his arm after he tosses the other one. (I just found this out the other day)

Never throw something away that you want to keep…it works the same for wedding day treasures as it does for common hosehold garbage.
