    I had one, but just because I wanted one.  Of course mine also carried a flask, which was wonderful and helped me relax!

    @Mrs. DG – and here I thought no one could convince me a garter was a good idea. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m not doing a garter toss, and most likely wouldn’t wear one, if my girlfriend didn’t offer hers up as my something borrowed!  Do it if you want to, but if you don’t care, make it one less thing you have to buy!

    There’s no way in hell anyone could ever convince me to do the garter toss (this was the ONLY thing I had feelings about as far as weddings go before I started planning my own), but I’m wearing garters because I think they’re pretty.  I love this seller’s: http://www.etsy.com/shop/florriemitton

    So if you don’t really care for the way garters look, don’t wear one.  But if you think it would make you feel more ‘bridal’ and a style catches your eye, why not?  As Mrs. DG said, they can be handy for multiple purposes. ๐Ÿ˜›

    We didn’t do bouquet/garter toss, so I didn’t even buy a garter. To me they look uncomfortable too, so yeah I wasn’t gonna wear one anyway.

    Nothing could have comvinced me to include a bouquet or garter toss. It’s just not me, i’ll leave it at that. But, I’m still wearing one because I want to. My mother and I are making mine out of lace from her wedding dress. My parents are having their 35th anniversary in June, so hopefully it’ll bring me good mojo!

    We’re not doing a garter toss, but I’ll be wearing one as my ‘something blue’ Smile

    I think you should still have one, its very bridal and plus, it’ll be a little suprise for your hubs when he sees it later on in the night in a more, intimate setting… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    There is no way in heck I’m doing a garter/boquet toss. That being said, I’m wearing a garter in my sorority colors: double blue and gold.

    Do you want a picture of you hiking up your dress to show off the garter? What about a more functional garter belt and thigh highs for the wedding night?

    I’m not getting one, all of the pretty garters I’ve found are too expensive.

    I personally really dislike garters.  I don’t don’t like the traditional toss but I just dislike the way they look!  So I won’t be doing the toss or wearing one.  But it’s totally up to you and just depends on what you like.  I think if you’re not doing the toss and you dont’ really care about them, save the money and do something else with it ๐Ÿ™‚
