I wore one because my mom got it for me as a gift, and I didn’t do a toss. I wouldn’t have worn one normally, as it was pretty pointless.

shorebride105:  I’m still planning on wearing one even though we will be doing no tossing. I hope to wear something that is a nodd to the groom purely for the fact that I think it’s something fun for him to find be it during pictures or at the end of the night.

shorebride105:  I will be wearing something like this on my boots. My FI can choose if he would like for me to keep it on and higher up for later in the evening. 

Shabby Chic Boot Band, Boot Accessories,Cowgirl Boot Band, Boot Bracelet With Feather Pad, Something Blue Garter

Mine will more than likely have some camo in it.

shorebride105:  I’m wearing one but not doing a toss. I’m making my own an dit just makes me feel sexy to wear 🙂

Just like wearing matching underthings…no one will see them all day but it makes me feel good!

We didn’t do a garter toss so I decided not to waste my money buying one.

I wore one because hey, why not, and it was my something blue, though also there were blue flowers in my bouquet. My husband and I had dinner privately, and I had him take it off then, because it was getting itchy lol. I got it on Amazon, but I thought about getting one on Etsy.

Like PP’s have said, I think it’s cute to have one for your husband on your wedding night. But if you don’t want to spend the money, then don’t! I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way to do it. 😀

I’ll be wearing one but won’t be doing a toss! Just because I want to 🙂

Fiance has expressed that he doesn’t want to do the toss, but I’ll be wearing one under my dress, for him to find…later that night.  I just don’t feel like my outfit is complete without one. I like the style of the garter that I picked out. It fits the theme of the wedding and goes well with my gown.

shorebride105:  We didnt do a toss either but I still wanted to wear one. I mean, when else do you get the chance? And since I wasn’t wearing a veil I wanted something to make me feel a little bridal, and feel sexy! It made for some great pics- and a nice suprise for hubby later that night! I saved it & am thinking about re-wearing it for our first anniversary sunday! 

I got it off etsy- the seller was BeChicAccessories. She made me a custom one to match my polka dot dress & have my something blue!

shorebride105:  I didn’t wear one since we weren’t doing a toss and it was impractical for me (fit and flare dress, already hot as hell, chanign into cocktail dress for the reception anyhow) but if you want to you should wear one either under your dress or with your wedding night ensemble.  It’s much sexier to have your new husband take off your garter in the privacy of your bedroom!

I’m not doing the toss either (hadn’t heard of the tradition until moving to Australia) but I thought they are far too cute to pass up, so ordered mine just to wear! I see it like bridal lingerie that you treat yourself to for this special occasion even if it doesn’t serve any real purchase!

however, i didn’t want to spend a great deal of money for a bit of lace I was wearing just for fun so I ordered mine from Etsy and got a set (couldn’t resist) for under $30

I’m wearing two.  One is a blue one that my FH caught at his sister’s wedding 5 years ago so it’s my OLD and BLUE.  I’m not tossing this one since this has sentimental value.

The other is a white one that I actually found at a dollar store and this one I will toss.

I know some brides don’t have a toss but still wear it because they still want the experience of wearing one.  It made them feel sexy and bridal and it was something for their husband to take off back in the hotel at the end of the night 😉

I still had one to wear, I got it from ETSY…BUT it fell off my leg as I was walking into our ceremony site. I just took it off after that since we were not doing a toss.

The flowers were pretty heavy on this and the lace wasn’t that “elastic” even though I measured my thigh and ordered a little smaller so it would be tight enough to stay up, it stretched out quickly and fell off. Oh well, pretty for photos!
