    I might wear it for fun but I'm not doing the bit where the groom removes it in front of everyone.

      I am not doing the garter or bouquet toss but will probably wear a garter for tradition sake.

        No garter or bouquet toss here either. The few single girls going 'begged' me not to make them stand in front of everybody - lol! I don't think anyone will miss it.

          We aren't doing a toss so I don't think so.

            We did all of it! I wore my garter all day and it didn't slip at all.

            Tossing the flowers (for those who don't want to ruin their bouqet, you can take a BM's since they are usually smaller or ask your WC to have a special "tossing" one made that is a mini version of your own bouqet or just a few flowers tied together):

              Thanks for the thread! I was thinking about if I were going to do the garter/bouquet toss and you ladies have offered pros & cons of both sides...

              @ Nikkianddean – I like the idea of presenting your bouquet to your mom.

              @ Yari - I like the idea of tossing the bouquet to all the ladies.

              @ ErinB – I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the idea of tossing the bouquet with loose flowers. This allows all women participating to get a flower and I can only imagine the BEAUTIFUL photo opp…

                  I'm definitely wearing a garter, I'm getting this Dolphins one off of etsy.

                  I've ended up only having 2 BM's instead of 3 and I had already ordered all the bouquets so I'm just going to use the left-over one has my toss bouquet, I like the idea of having all the ladies be involved though because majority of the women at my wedding will all be married.

                    i bought a cute satin one from Michaels with a blue swaorvsky (sp??) heart shaped crystal. It was cheap, like $4 usd.
                    and my friend got me one from the dollar store that I am going to decorate in the Houston Texan football team theme.
                    he can toss that one. lol.

                      I had one and brought it down and in all the commotion of the day when it came time to put in on I had no clue where it was and really didnt care to worry about it. Found it in the suitcase when I got home. It was one of those things lower on the priority list for me.
