    I’m not wearing a garter, I plan on wearing a style of dress that would show the garter, and I think the whole teeth on garter thing is a little creepy. Keep it for the bedroom!

    As of now, I’m planning just to skip the whole thing entirely.  I may incorporate one into my outfit later in the evening when its just the two of us though lol 😉

    The wording of the question is throwing me off with that “not”. I wasn’t sure if the choices are saying “yes, it is not tasteful” and “no, it’s not not tasteful”. Maybe that’s what’s throwing off the responses? Anywho, I answered yes as in, I find removing with teeth to be cringe-inducing. Hopefully I got it right 🙂

    It’s like what veganglam said that it crosses into actually acting something out in front of the fam (as opposed to making sexyjokes here and there)

    I might wear a garter and my husband might remove it with his teeth, but it certainly won’t happen at the reception in front of my dad, grandma, and great aunt Matilda.

    As a wedding guest, watching the groom root around under the bride’s dress just makes me uncomfortable (teeth or no teeth).  So I vote “distasteful”.

    I love it – I think it is fun!

    I will not have kids or grandparents at my wedding and 90% of my crowd will be in their late 20s! So it will just be a big party and that is a fun element we will be incorporating into it!

    I would be super uncomfortable having Fiance UP MY SKIRT, digging around for something with his teeth, in front of my friends and family.  I’m not a prude, either.  I just think it’s inappropriate.  I’m skipping it.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with it.  It is fun and sexy and shows your guests how into you your groom is!  It’s not like you’re getting down and dirty at the wedding…

    Husband’s head up my skirt is more “down and dirty” than I want to get in front of my grandparents (and my young, rowdy friends, for that matter).

    Exactly.  Plus, can you imagine how hot and sweaty you are under that dress?

    I’m pretty sure my guests know I’m into my groom, evidenced by the fact that I married him.

    I’m not sure how to answer the poll, lol. “Yes- it is not tasteful, and No- it is not tasteful seem like the same thing to me… I’m confused!

     

    But we won’t be doing any garter removal, with hands or teeth.  It’s just really not our style.  We’re pretty private people, and that just seems raunchy to me.  Plus, my dress has a dropped hip and a slim cut, so there isn’t really a big puffy skirt for him to get under anyway.

    I think it’s hilarious to see the brides get funny faced when the groom goes “up there”, but does the groom really get it with his teeth is another thing. I think most people just assume the groom goes under the dress but reaches it with his hands and just puts it in his teeth, not that he actually grabs it with his teeth – right??? haha!

    This is the worst part of weddings, in my opinion. I can’t imagine the look of horror on my grandmothers faces as my Fiance head getting lost somewhere up my briday gown. I wouldn’t be able to face my father, either. It makes me shake just thinking about it!

    I find it to be inappropriate in the extreme.  That isn’t the kind of thing a grandparent or a father wants to see.  It also isn’t appropriate for a child.
