    Usually there are two. One for the groom to take off and toss and one for the bride to keep for sentimental reasons.

    I wore zero because we didn’t do a garter toss. I have no idea what the point of garter is so I would think you would only need to wear one if you were going to do the garter toss.

    lrk1203 :  Some people will just put one one before going into the reception for the garter toss. Otherwise, it’ll probably get sweaty. As to whether or not you wear another one during the ceremony, that’s up to you. I don’t plan on it because I can imagine it’d be itchy and annoying. We aren’t having a garter toss, though.

    I only had one, but the garter toss isn’t traditional in UK weddings.

    lrk1203 :  I only had one and took it off during pictures and my husband put it in his pocket. We skipped the “dig up the brides dress in front of everyone” part and he just took it out of his pocket and tossed it. They aren’t comfortable and there was no way I was gonna wear that all night.

    My set has two – a nicer one for me to keep for sentimental reasons and a simpler one to toss. I plan on wearing just one for photos and having the toss garter by the toss bouquet. Like a PP we don’t want to have the risque garter removal; no scandalous removal, no sweaty garter, just a toss. We’re bribing men up for the toss, too, with a giftcard for the winner.

    I told my fiancé the other day that I don’t want to do the garter toss. I find it a little creepy honestly. No offense, but I am so not comfortable with sitting in a chair while he removes a garter belt from my thigh (by hand or teeth mind you!) while my entire family watches.. Nope!

    I am on the fence about the bouquet toss. Will poll my guests ahead of time if they want to do it. The last two weddings I went to didn’t have a bouquet toss.
