    Perfect timing for me to read up on this thread.... I ordered a garter but apparently it got lost in the mail because I didn't receive it. Which made me think I don't have any single people at my wedding so a garter and bouquet toss doesn't make sense. I don't think it's tacky at all not to have one....or at least I hope it isn't!

      I was thinking the same thing ladies...not very many singles coming to the wedding so the garter toss and boquet toss seem a little pointless...I don't think I will do it so hopefully it is not tacky!

        I don't think I'll do one either, like you all said, not many singles around to toss to. And I know that, as an unmarried woman at a wedding, I always found it horrifying to have to be put on display as single in order to catch a bouquet that I'll have to cart around the rest of the night, labelling me as unmarried. lol. I dunno. Just me.

        Might put the garter on when we get back to the room anyway, just so FI can experience the novelty of it though.

        We finished packing last night, aside from our toiletries anyway. Feeling pretty good about things at this point, not too panicked, which I was expecting. A bit nervous about the mass waxing this evening though! lol

          Holy smokes!! It's amazing how quickly we all will be leaving. We leave on the red eye Monday night.

          I don't thinkit'll be tacky if you don't have a ganter/boquet toss. I'm not, but only 2 people there will be single... I think it would weird if I had one because of that. lol

          I already have all the clothes packed. Need to pick up a few small items. Need to get a big purse since my dress will be my carry on, my FI will be carrying the cameras, laptop, etc. lol

          Getting waxed and a pedicure Friday, gel nails on Monday.

          Will more than likely do the planning thread when we get back.

          Not liking the looks of the weather for next week for the area we are going to though. I hope it doesn't rain much.

            Are you carrying your dress in the dress bag? My friends think I'm crazy because I said I'm going to roll mine up and try to put it in a duffle bag. I hope it fits, I'll have to test that out. I told them worst case I'll use our vaccuum seal bags we use to pack for skiing....their mouths dropped! Just kidding of course, if it doesn't fit in a duffle i guess i'll carry it in the bag. I'm assuming it has to go through the security conveyor? That might be a little awkward.

              I bought a garment bag that was big enough for the dress. It has handles at both ends of the bag so it can be carried and plus it has a locking hanger holder to keep the hanger in place.

              They were from a company called Wally Bags. This is the one I bought: Wally Bags, Garment Travel Bag Supplier, Clothing Protector Bags, Nylon Suit Travel Bag

                  Yeah I might have better luck with one of those garment bags and feel better about it going through the conveyor safely. I think I'll hit up TJ Maxx or Ross after work to see if they have any good sized ones, thanks!

                      I just went to the 2nd hand store and picked up a garment suitcase. $4.99. Oh yeah.
