We’re not doing the garter thing either. Not because we’re prudes or anything, he just didn’t want to do it. I’m fine with that too. However, we are doing the bouquet toss. I doubt any of your guests will really care if that happens at all anyways.

We’re not doing the garter or bouquet toss because I find them both really awkward and annoying. I really don’t think you need to “replace” it with anything though, it’s not something I think would be missed at a wedding.

Not doing a garter toss. I think it is tacky and yet another bizarre tradition. The whole concept is disgusting and lewd. Next time I promise not to hold back on how I really feel lol. I was just happy to see I am not alone in thinking the garter toss is tacky.

We’re not doing either.  I’m not planning on replacing them with anything.  Just not having them.  I agree that 

i don’t think they will be missed.

We didn’t do a garter or bouquet toss and nobody missed them. But I did buy a garter, which I wore with my weddng night lingerie, and my husband loved it 🙂

We aren’t either.  I don’t like the symbolism/history behind it.

And I think it’s gross to have him all up in my shit in front of our parents…

We are not doing one. The Groomsmen are married!! It will not be missed! I am not doing a bouquet toss either. We are getting married on the beach so we will have a blessing stone toss.

We thought it would be fun to do, both that and the bouquet toss but when we were talking about it we realized that most of our friends are already married so it may be awkward to have like 2 girls and 2 guys and then some kids. So we are thinking about not doing it….we dont think it will be missed, plus gives more time to dance!

We didn’t do a garter toss or a bouquet toss. Mostly because the majority of our guests are already married. We just had extra dancing/mingling time which we LOVED 🙂
