    Now I did buy a garter, but I have thick thighs (from dancing for 12 years) so I will only wear it if I lose some more weight and I don’t feel like it is going to cut off my circulation.


    You so need to explain the bad experience with a garter toss!

Our family and friends, guests, are rather humorous and are all for good fun. I talked to the Best Man(obviously my FH's best friend, so it's not some unknown random person) about this already and he's all for it.

       

      Here it goes: Instead of a garter removal and toss, FI will have to put the garter ON blindfolded. Of course, he'll think that's its me he's putting the garter on, but as soon as he's blindfolded...I'm out of the chair and the BM will take my place (pant risen up to his knee and no shoe). It's the usual trick with a twist. I know he wouldn't take anything far b/c of the family present, even if it really was me instead of BM. I just hope he doesn't really think that hairy leg is mine lol

       

      My sister wanted the BM to go a step further and actually wear a cheap, perhaps ugly, white dress during this but I said no. Besides, I think the hysterical laughter would tip off my FI LOL

       

      I'll be wearing a garter regardless, but there'll be a cheap one used for the blindfolded switch and my garter won't be seen by anyone else but my FH ;-)


      that is such a great idea, everyone will get a kick out of it!  You will have to let us know in your wedding review how it went!!!!!

          I am using garter and doing the toss, but here in Mexico we have the friends of the Groom to "cover" the bride taking arms close and dancing around the bride and groom when he is taking the garter, so not too much things to show

            LOVE that idea...that is really cute!  Too bad you can't cue the audience in to keep their laughter silent...the BM in a wedding dress would be priceless!

              I think we are going to wait until the AHR to do them both.  There will be a ton more single people as opposed to maybe the 2 in Jamaica that will be single!  lol!  Any maybe after the all-inclusive advantages kick in, maybe they wont even be single!

                  I will be wearing a garter, but only because i bought one to match my lingerie for my wedding night. I googled what the meaning for the garter was the other night and was quite shocked.
