Nope. I didn't want to wear one and I never liked the idea of my husband fishing around up there in front of Grandma.
Married! May 27th, 2012
Please don't do it. It sexualizes the bride and the guest who has to wear it. My fiance caught it... and he had to put it on me in front of his own family and the bride's family who were total strangers to me. We had no idea that this was apart of the "tradition" and I was HORRIFIED to have a bunch of strangers watch me and photograph it being done. It was not the kind of attention I wanted and I was humiliated.
At the only garter toss I've ever seen, the guy who got it had just recently been left by his fiancé a month before, which was sad...but did he really have to shove a SEVEN YEAR OLD out of the way to catch it?? Whatever you choose to do, just make sure there are no guests you anticipate being that desperate :P
