I’m wondering this too.. I’m not tossing and I’m not wearing stockings. I considered wearing stockings specifically to solve this issue, but they looked odd with my peeptoe shoe.

Debating wearing one to cover my “something blue”, if I ever end up finding “something old.” But I really can’t decide if that is a good enough reason.

I bought one for my wedding night lingerie, just for kicks and giggles.

I’m not doing the garter toss thing, but we’re also not doing the bouquet toss. We’re avoiding as much awkwardness as possible! Lol.

I wasn’t planning on wearing one, but when my dad was moving, we found my mom’s garter in a box.  Since she’s deceased, I thought it would be a nice way of having her with me on the day.  Needless to say, we will not be doing a garter toss.

I wore a garter but I’m not sure why, lol. No one saw it and I didn’t do a garter toss.

I bought one to give to my FH… a token of the day I guess. I’m not doing a toss, I know the feeling of being wrangled to the floor when you are single and not interested in that. My garter matches the damask theme that we have in our invites and such. It’s an easy way to get your “something old” or “something blue” for a lot of bees though.
