Throwing the garter began in France when pieces of the bridal attire were considered lucky. The bride would throw the garter to the guests at the wedding and whoever caught it could expect good luck. In the United States, the groom traditionally removes the garter from the bride and throws it to the unmarried men. The man who catches it is thought to be the next to marry.thewave.gif

I really don't want to do the garter and bouquet toss. My fiance really seems disappointed about this so i'm trying to come up with other ideas in the place. I like the idea of having a dance and eliminating couples until we get to the couple that has been together the longest and giving them a bouquet (not my bouquet of course lol). Does anyone have any ideas I could use in place of the garter?

I have seen the 'throwing out the groom's little black book' thing, to all his single friends. It would not work in my case, but the couple I know who did that filled in the names of every single girl they knew in the book. Not sure if it ever got used or not; I think that might offend some too, but it worked for them.

 

I would really love to do a bouquet and garter toss. I just don't see it working for us. We will probably have a small group, and I am not sure if anyone there will be single with the exception of my sister and brothers, and they surely do not want my garter! I am kind of disappointed, but maybe we will do one at our AHR. Hope so! I love traditions, even the cheesy ones!

 

Regardless, I will probably wear one anyway, even if it is just putting it on at the end of the night for FI to find. He would love it!

I had one made on Esty from our alma mater (we graduated from the same university). I won't be tossing it though. Just wearing it for fun and will put it in our office with all of the rest of our college stuff later.

Thanks for posting this. I always wondered how the garter toss started.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
