    i am still undecided, but agree that i probably won't be throwing it since most of our friends are married.

      initially i was planning on it, but from talking it over with FI doesn't look like i will...no real use for it, and we're trying to save money.

      58 people booked...and counting!!!

        Not for anything other than the novilty of it, i will wear it, give FI a sneaky peak at the wedding and then keep it afterwards :-)

        Dosent have to be expensive, i got mine from ebay for £1.74 inc delivery. Like i say it really is just for the novilty aspect for us :-)

          I got a NY Giants garter as well. I bought the garters when we were planning the wedding here at home, so I will use them, but I don't know if we will do the toss or anything. I'm undecided. I got the NY Giants one for the toss and a camo one to keep (as FI's a big hunter)!

              I brought one with me that I received for free from the bridal salon when I ordered my wedding dress. When I tried it on before we left for our DW, it felt too tight and uncomfortable, plus it was really itchy! Granted, it was probably a cheap garter. We didn't plan to do any of the traditional stuff like bouquet toss or garter toss, anyway. So, no garter for me!

                  Probably not. I think I would feel awkward doing a garter toss even know I know it's a tradition.

                    I just bought a garter with two college teams since my fiance and I went to rival universities. Cost was $14.99 + $4.50 S/H.

                    I doubt we will end up tossing the garter because I am wearing a mermaid dress and that could lead to some difficulties in the groom kneeling and pulling it off during the ceremony (take a moment for a mental image). I hate to think this way, but if it is a hot day in Mexico there is also a good chance the garter could be a little sweaty :-)

                      I'm wearing one, not to throw or anything though.
