I just thought about it and im kinda worried now… we wont be having enough “single” men at our wedding and im i guess embarrassed. We have maybe like 4 single guys(no joke) and theres like another 3 that are not married.
Is it suppose to be only single men?? Or men that are unmarried also?
What should i do??
What if we had the Dj announce “single men and unmarried men”? would that be strange?

You could skip it. 🙂
Traditionally I have seen that garter toss done with all unmarried men, sometimes even little kids (which is creepy when you consider the origins of this tradition). Where I’m from regionally, it’s come to be known as whomever catches the garter will be the next to get married, thus any unmarried man can participate.

I would skip it…I’m not doing a bouquet toss or a garter toss at my wedding. It’s ok to break from tradition sometimes! 🙂

We will have ONE single man at the reception. He suggested that he could just cut out the middle man and take my garter off himself, but we opted to just skip it.

I would just leave it out completely.

i agree with other posters and would skip it all together.

One more vote for skipping it. If we had thrown either of our garters, the “single men” who could have caught it would have been my ex-husband and my son. Either of those was something I didn’t even want to think about, so we just skipped it.

You can do all unmarried men or skip it. However, if you did still want to keep the toss, you could always add a gift card or something and ask for all the men to come up. Then it is more about winning a prize than singling out the unmarried men.

You can have your husband remove it and not do the tossing part. We didn’t do it at all.
