I’m not doing it. If someone cares that much they can do it at their own wedding.

I think it’s old-fashioned and corny. Totally skipped it.

We didn’t do the garter at all, and I tossed my bouquet outside at the very end of the night as I was getting ready to get into the limo.  There was little fanfare, and it made for some adorable pictures as DH’s young niece caught it.

Don’t stress over it! What we did was we picked the songs for the bouquet an garter toss and told our DJ that we might do it and we’d let him know during the reception. That way he already had the songs and all that. But we totally forgot all about it and never ended up doing it anyway. Oh well lol

Miss Moneypenny:  Do what feels most comfortable for you! We didn’t do either of these activities and nobody missed them. I’d actually be surprised if many of our guests actually noticed 😛

Miss Moneypenny:  It’s your wedding. I am not doing a bouquet toss or a garter toss. It seems like a waste of time and not a lot of guest enjoy them at weddings anyways. If it stresses you out it is simple really just don’t do it. Like I said it is your wedding do whatever you feel comfortable.

If it’s stressing you out, don’t do it! No one else should care whether you do it or not.

As I age, if I go to a wedding where it is done, it seems to be an after thought half the time. “Oh we forgot to do the garter toss, are there any singles here? Only 1! Here you go.”

I personally think it is a fading thing.

Miss Moneypenny:  We’re not doing either. I don’t mind the boquet toss, but the garter toss creeps me out a little (just the idea of my Fiance up my skirt with all our family there)

None of the weddingsi have been to in the last three years have done one, im skipping them as well. Do whatever YOU want. Do you have a lot of single ppl coming that would/could even participate?!

My fiance and I are not planning on doing either and not a single person we have mentioned it to seems to care if we do them or not. I think it’s becoming a thing of the past. If you don’t want to do it, then don’t 🙂

I also don’t want to do it. It seems like some people totally expect it, but I kind of just don’t want to, so I probably won’t. I will ask my Fiance for his opinion, but I doubt that he will care either way.
