I think that sounds cute, but you could also just NOT do a garter toss, and not feel obligated to replace it with anything.  Or you could have a garter that is unworn and not retrieved from your thigh in front of guests, perhaps attaching a gift card or something to it so people actually want to catch it.  We’re just skipping the tradition entirely.

Agree with the PP.  It’s a cute idea.  We’re skipping it all together.

We’re also skipping the garter toss.  We’re not replacing it with anything.

i personally feel the garter toss is a little sleazy. cant understand why they have it for weddings.

We skipped the garter toss because we both thought it was super awkward :-P. We didn’t replace it with anything, but I think your idea sounds really cute, especially if there will be a lot of kids there.

I’m going to wear a garter for my new husband, but definitely NOT doing the toss!  We’re also going to skip the bouquet toss…

@meg0967: we didnt do a garter or boquet toss either. Instead i had a garter with lottery tickets and scratchies attached to it and a silk boquet with lottery tickets attached to that. Darling Husband threw the flowers to any guy who “wanted to get lucky that night” and i did the same for the women.

It was a hit!

I think we are skipping too, I do like the breakaway though
