Are you wearing a Garter

Recommended Posts

I actually wore 2 garters. One was new and served as my new and blue, and the other one was my grandmother's, and was my old and borrowed. I didn't toss them or a bouquet since we had a really small wedding.

I did wear a garter at the last minute to my legal ceremony because I found one for like $3 the day of when I was looking for new undies. I absolutely refused to toss it or let anyone but my husband see it. And there was to be no throwing of any flowers. Period. And since I had worn it for our legal ceremony, I wore it again for the wedding in Mexico. Again, DH was the only one who knew.

I didn't know that wearing the garter to your legal ceremony make it legal? Did your garter hold up pantyhose or was it just on your leg? Did you wear two anyway? Kind of make it your own tradition, thats great!

I wore two garters (one to toss and one to keep) on my right leg--they were Superman (my husband's favorite!). I ordered them from a company in the US called Sew Unique Garters (Sew Unique Wedding Garters). They were $27 including shipping (mine was pretty stretchy, but if need be, they can custom make your garter to fit your thigh size). I wore them for the ceremony and tossed the smaller one during the cocktail reception immediately following the ceremony (didn't have to wear it for more than a few hours). I took the keepsake one off before switching into my second dress for our dinner cruise.

 

We also did the bouquet toss during the cocktail reception, which was a lot of fun. It was hilarious watching my single girlfriends dive for the bouquet! I totally recommend doing the garter toss and the bouquet toss--you will get some great photos!

It was just on my leg. I only wore one b/c it was cheap and I didn't have to look for one (it was on the counter at check-out at a lingerie shop!). DH knew I wasn't going to toss one, so he was surprised when he found it later. Just a cutesy thing for the 2 of us. We're all about making our own traditions.

    • 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.
