What do your FI think? I wasn’t going to wear one either until he told me he wants to do a garter toss.

I thought the same thing, but I never felt it and it did not move.  I did make mine out of lace from my mother’s wedding dress so that was cool, but I completely forgot I had one on the entire day.  I think that making it meant that it fit me perfectly and that I am sure helped alot.

@DanielleI:  I wore a garter and we did a garter toss. It was tons of fun! There are mixed feelings on the garter toss these days so I would discuss it with your FI and see what you want to do.

For what it is worth I totally forgot I was wearing one for the better portion of the day. It wasn’t hot, itchy and didn’t slide.

I haven’t been to a wedding where there was a garter toss but I know what happens.  I don’t like them.  I’m, by no means, a prude but they make me feel 3rd party embarassment and it feels very dated and cheesy.  That’s my hang up though, nobody elses.

I’m wearing one, getting a tartan one made to match his kilt, but we aren’t doing a garter toss, mostly because we are having a small-ish wedding and between my boss, gran and his wee cousins, I would NOT fancy that!

I only wore one because it was my Mom’s, so it was my old & blue. Did not do a garter toss, however- the only people who saw it were Mom, my photographer, and DH.

I wore one but took it off before the reception because it kept falling down!

@DanielleI:  I debated on the garter as well. I wore one but didn’t have a garter toss….we had a small DW and wasn’t really wasn’t approp with our small croud of pretty much all married people. I would up kind getting mine last minute. I found it for only $10 on ebay and it was a San Diego Chargers garter since that wa DHs favorite team and it served as my something blue! I really only got it as a surprise for him and of course he loved it!
