      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!

            I don't know how sexy a garter would be with my Spanx!!

              I haven't decided yet. I like the idea but my dress is silk charmeuse so I'm nervous it will show through my dress.

                  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 public
