Are you wearing a Garter

Recommended Posts

I find I decided to do a lot of things I originally said I wouldn't.... like splurge on all the extras, but the more I thought about it the more I was like 'this is only one day and what's $200 at the end of it' LOL  or maybe that's because fiance kept saying that to me when I was being a cheap skate! lol! 

 

I am most definitely wearing it as it's my something blue, but after that who knows! I want to keep it though so it ain't being tossed.

 

That's more my fiancè's attitude than it is mine loll But I'm slowly loosening up about things and agreeing to do things since this is just one special day exactly for that same reason - my fiancé says I'm worrying too much about money and need to just relax....so I'm trying loll I'll probably get one for just for us....not to toss lol 

 

@@LauraM - Agreed! That's the beauty of it - do whatever you're comfortable doing!

Glad to hear there are others not partaking in this. My FI is not comfortable doing this in front of my dad and I have to say I don't blame him.

I might wear a garter (to incorporate my something blue), but we are foregoing the whole garter toss part.

I told my fiance last night that I didn't want to do a garter toss and he totally agreed! phew!

 

Also considering forgoing the bouquet toss too.

I totally want to wear a garter but I think I'd be too embarrassed to get my fiancé to take it off in front of everyone haha! My dress is too tight and I'd feel like I'd almost have to lift it all the way up to get to the garter

I am doing a garter- only because I wanted to surprise my fiance with one made of his favorite "footy" team - it has a little charm and everything. I got my from theweddinggarter.com - professional, fast, and awesome! I feel like I cant really surprise him much because we arent doing a grooms cake

 

My friend also gave me a garter from Agent Provacateur (fancy lingerie store)- i feel bad not wearing it but i had in mind to design one

 

but there is no way that he is going to be crawling up my dress in front of my dad to get it...

My fiance and I decided we are not going to have a garter. Everyone except 3 guests that are going are all married. So no point.

Same here - everyone at my wedding aside from FI and my younger siblings will be engaged/married so no garter or bouquet toss for us.

 

I will still be getting a garter because it will be made with my alma mater colors w/mascot pin and I think it will be great for pictures.

I got a garter (from Etsy...a University of Illinois one, where we met) but we still aren't sure if we're doing the toss

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
