    Just have your fiance go get it from the guy that caught it. Or have him give him a gift certificate or something in exchange for the garter.

    Can you wear two garters?  I’ve heard a lot of people wear a keepsake and a throw-away together.  In fact, I’m pretty sure a lot of graters nowadays come in this set.  You could buy another cheap one and have your Fi take off both but only toss the cheap one at the wedding.  Then keep the one your mom bought!

    I bought my garter at the last minute at JoAnn’s! It cost me $2.99. Check out your local craft store, it will have garters you can use for a "throw" garter.

    We aren’t doing a garter toss because 1. there won’t be a ton of single guys there & we wouldn’t want to alienate those that were. And 2. We’re an extremely private couple! My Fiance going up my skirt in front of my friends and family would be horribly traumatic for me. lol I’d much rather save that for after the wedding night. Actually, the most anyone has seen from the 2 of us is a peck, hand holding & a touch here or there. I always wonder if people think we’re prudes? lol But thats another thread…
