No garter or bouquet toss at the DW or AHR.

 

Though, I did do a wedding once where the bride tossed a bouquet, but the flowers weren't bound together. That way, when it was thrown, each lady/girl was able to get a flower. It also made for some really neat pictures.

I mentioned to my FI about not having a garter and bouquet toss since most of our guest are married. He still wants me to wear a garter so he can take it off later that night.

I'm thinking that when the time comes I want to wear a garter! I probably won't throw it or anything, but will feel special wearing it just for him! wink.gif

I don't plan to-- not a fan of the "tradition" and it seems like just one more piece of wedding industry crap to me. I don't consider myself a prude but it seems vulgar to me, the process of the groom digging around in your skirts to grab at your thighs in front of everyone. And I hate the tossing of the bouquet/garter. As a single person, it always felt so demeaning to me so I never stood up to catch it.

 

I know I'm not typical in my thoughts though.

Yes I will be wearing one. It will have the traditional blue bow.

 

I will be flashing it, will not be about tossing it - not in publicoops.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
