    We are doing it. Fiance is actually excited about it, lol I am even gettting a surprise garter with our favorite NBA team on it. Since we love the Grizzlies, it will be one of my somethings blue.

    I’m honestly really not sure. There aren’t going to be a ton of single people there.

    It goes hand in hand with if I’ll do the bouquet toss. If I do one I’ll do the other.

    I’m doing it! It will be fun. Besides we will give guest an option to gather up for the toss and those that don’t want to can remain seated.

    You guys are young enough to do it and have fun with it.  My Fiance and I are in our mid-30s and there’s no way I want to humiliate my two, single girlfriends by calling them out on the floor… they’d never speak to me again!!!!!!

    Oops – I was just referring to the bouqet toss.  Are you talking about the garter toss?  We’re not doing it, either.  Same reasons.  One single guy…

    We didn’t do either. I think people should do whatever they want, but I can tell you one thing, if I were single and was forced to try and catch a bouquet, I wouldn’t do it. Personally, yeah, I’ll admit I think both are kind of silly, but to each their own.

    We had a spare garter that I didn’t wear that we tossed.

    We didn’t have ANY single people at my wedding.  So instead we told everyone that whoever caught the bouquet and garter would get a $50 gift certificate.  Turns out we’re terrible at throwing stuff, and my niece and nephew ended up catching them.  I doubt they’ll know how to spend $50 at Cabela’s or Bed Bath and Beyond!!

    I don’t think we’ll do the garter toss.. maybe a spin on the bouquet toss though (all ladies, not just “single”.)

    i’m pretty shy and don’t want Fiance fiddling with my dress in front of people. Thats not to say that at other weddings though they did it and as a guest it was very fun and entertaining. If you are comfortable doing it, then i say go for it!!

    I get what some people like doing it for tradition, but I always felt really awkward as a single guest participating and thought it would be just as awkward as bride and groom.

    all of my bridesmaids are single so i will def be doing the bouquet. I’m going to leave it up to Fiance if he does the garter or not. He generally doesn’t like to be the center of attention, especially in what is a kind of embarrassing situation. I’m also not sure how I feel about our grandparents watching him go reaching for it up my skirt.

    We aren’t doing it. It always made me uncomfortable at other weddings. Especially when the groom had been drinking…

    I’m really shy and am already nervous enough about standing up infront of everyone so the whole garter thing is definitely NOT happening. And I’m pretty sure I don’t want to do the bouquet toss either simply because there are only going to be 3 single girls and I don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable.
