@oxstardust421xo:  I just got around to even getting wedding photos after 14 months, lol, so maybe in a few MORE years I will make the shadow box I planned on making. The garter, invite, a sock (they had special socks), my hair piece, necklace, and some other small things will go in there.

@oxstardust421xo:  Mine will be tucked away for memories. It will NOT be displayed. The horror!

I don’t know what happened to mine after it was tossed…I hope it got thrown away.  It had no meaning, and it was bought last minute from amazon when we finally decided to do the garter toss.

I am not getting a wedding prop garter.

I have, you know, actual garters (garter belts). He tends to unclip them.

@oxstardust421xo:  Sorry, I probably should have expanded on that – it’s currently a shoe box! I have a box that my dad made to put the cards in at the wedding and reception that I’ll eventually move the items into, but I haven’t gotten around to it just yet.

@oxstardust421xo:  FWIW someone at our apartment complex has one hanging on their rearview mirror and it really… grosses me out? Not sure why but it does whenever I walk past their car.

@springbride23:  probably because it’s intended to a symbol of “deflowering.”

@joya_aspera:  Haha, probably. I didn’t think it was incredibly tasteful but to each their own!

@oxstardust421xo:  Love your garter and I love all the other cute designs that they come in.  I would’ve loved to get my DH’s fave sports team, but they were like $30 for the pair and I know we wouldn’t do anything with them after that night. So, alas, I went with the $3 Walmart one and I have no idea what has happened to it since. 🙂
