Are you wearing a Garter

Recommended Posts

I bought a Broncos one and played some stripping music and had Matt go get it, but I put it on just before that point because it was lacy (ie itchy) and I didn't want to worry about it falling down while I walked around.

 

We had fun with it but didn't toss the garter or the bouquet.

I just came back from a wedding where the bride chose not to wear one and no one missed it.

 

I think it's totally up to the couple. Some like it, some don't.

I wore one but we did NOT do a garter toss. It was really cute and had a little starfish on it - it ended up practically cutting my circulation off though so I took it off and wrapped it around my wrist like a little bracelet! Sounds weird but it worked.

I am not wearing a garter or throwing my bouquet either!! I am so happy to hear that some of you other ladies don't really care for this tradition! We aren't having quite a conventional wedding, and I don't know about you guys but most of my guests are not single! However, I agree it is a matter of personal choice!

I wore one but only because it came free with the dress. We didn't bother with the toss, nor did I do a bouquet toss. But I did like having the garter to wear, not sure why, just thought, when else am I going to wear one of these things?

I would like to do the garter and bouquet toss, but it will depend on how many single people are there.

Yari - I like the idea of tossing the bouquet to all the ladies, maybe we will do that as well and the garter can go to all the men.

We are making my garter to match my dress, and I am not worried about the cost of the bouquet, as I won't be able to bring it home anyways, and it will probably die before we leave.

 

The only thing that I am trying to figure out is whether to do them at the AHR as well. There will be a lot of people there that won't be at the DW, and we could just get a little thing of flowers and make another garter.

My thighs are too fat so I'm sure my guests were thankful they didn't have to watch that. LOL

 

We didn't do garter or bouquet toss. We only had 20 people and 3 were single. It just seemed silly.

I'm not intending to do the garter or bouquet toss. I may wear the garter but its staying on my leg (until DH removes it of course!!smile72.gif) and as for the bouquet, we get married three days after we arrive so have another 11 days there, so I will just bring it back to my room and enjoy the flowers for the rest of the holiday (this was my 7 year olds idea as she will be sharing our room and she loves flowers).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
