Are you wearing a Garter

Recommended Posts

We didn't do a toss because we really didn't have singles... But, I did wear a garter. I had completely forgotten I had it on, but DH had not forgotten I bought one and was very happy to retrieve it - lol. I think sometimes our guys like some of the traditions more than we do!

I am - a New Orleans Saints one from Ebay. I'm going to surpise my FI. It came with a toss garter that is smaller that I am just going to give to our one single guy friend who is also a big Saints fan.

I think it will also squish my thighs more than I want. And be itchy.

 

I want to know where all these traditions started. Like the smashing the cake in the face. I don't want to feed each other cake either. or drinkg champagne with our arms linked. I'm just not that traditional. I can't think of a tradition I do want to do...

 

I don't dislike them at other people's weddings. I just have no interest in doing it.

 

Oh, I thought of one. I do like the rose petal toss or bubbles. I like toasts. Doing the macarena (that's a wedding tradition right?) I like doing the Aggie war hyme. I think that's it. Oh, and the chicken dance. I have to do the chicken dance.

nope, not interested in the slightest.

 

The ONLY way I would change my mind is if someone lent me one, and then I would incorporate it as my something borrowed. My friend's grandma gave her hers to wear as an unexpected "something old" and I thought it was pretty cute. Although she's wearing it halfway up her calf because her grandma's thighs were so tiny 40 years ago!

I am won't be doing that. I am personally not into it and my FI already told me he's not doing it. So I am happy with that. Some people love it. I say do it if you want to.

We havent discussed this yet but I'm way too shy to be having FIs head up my dress while my parents/daughter are watching...ummm, NO! I was thinking of just having a NY Yankee one as my something blue & just keeping it as surprise for him later on.

I love the chicken dance! I thought I was the only one so thank you Morgan for making me not feel like a loser.

We are not doing the whole garter/bouquet toss. We don't have a lot of single people coming so there really is no point and I really had no interest in doing the garter thing. I hate having attention on me especially for something like that. I will be getting one that FI can take off later.

I bought a Detroit tigers one for the FI... but I don't think I want to wear it all day... maybe I will slip it on with the lingerie I bought... that way he can see it, but with no single guys at the wedding no real reason to wear it, toss it, or be annoyed by it all day!

    • 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.
