    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 did -- an Army garter. Tom loved it and has it on his dresser.

            Kendra, brides usually throw a toss bouquet one that is smaller and lots cheaper than the bridal bouquet or you can make one with silk flowers and toss it. Just ceremonial.

              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.
