The Garter

Recommended Posts

What a great idea! I am sure your guests will love that!

This way we get the traditional and fun moment but its not awkward for guests!

ssapper- love it!!! Tradition and fun were the exact reasons why my FI wanted to keep them in but I thought it would be so silly to have just a few people participating so this is perfect.  And you're right it eliminates a potentially awkward moment.

We have decided not to do either as we only have a few singles and just dont really see the point.  Plus its something we probably wouldn't have done either if we got married here.

I love all the alternative ideas!

 

Being one of the last single girls in my group, I know how it feels to be one of the only girls left trying to catch the flowers! When there isnt a big group it is just akward and embarrassing. I will def. look at all my RSVPs then decide if we will be doing tosses.

I have not seen a garter toss in the last 5 years. If you want to do it then you should but I don't think its a tradition that must be kept.

I have yet to have the discussion on garter toss and bouquet toss with the FI. I am not too sure if we will be doing that stuff yet...  we only have 3 single people ( all guys) in the group of guests.. so i am not too sure... i like the idea of the oldest wife getting the bouquet.. that is sweet..

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
