    I didn't wear one, the bridal store gave me one when I bought my dress, but I completely forgot about it and didn't even think about it again. I wore as little as I could under my dress, so a garter would have felt uncomfortable in the heat.

    I had two, so that I could keep one

      Yup, thats the only reason I"m considering wearing one. FI would be dissapointed if he didn't get to take it off, it's one of the things he knows for sure happens in a wedding.

        My sister was so bothered by hers (itchy) that she put it on right before they took it off. I actually made hers and she kept one and threw the crappy one I made. I am going to surprise Chris and get a Cubs one!

          I am hoping that mine will not show through my dress... It is blue. But I feel like I HAVE to wear it. I had it especially made. My grandmother was VERY poor when she got married 60 years ago. She wore a blue gown and had a blue veil (can't imagine what people thought!). Because NONE of us would EVER wear that awful blue veil, I had garters made for each "branch" of the family tree. Now each bride can wear a part of Grandma's special day on theirs and it will be the "old" and/or the "blue". So..... I HAVE to wear it..... Hope it doesn't show!

            I'm in the same boat...my mom and sis got me garters and they are blue and I'm hoping they don't show either! Yikes!
