I hope this is the right board. I was going to post in "accessories" but after reading some of those posts, etiquette seemed like a more appropriate place for my question.
Anyway, in several discussions about the line up during the reception my FMIL has said, "...and then the tossing of the garter belt." Is this still a thing? I haven't seen any other posts about it. Many years ago I witnessed this at a reception. The groom sort of climbed up her dress to retrieve it (how else would he get it lol) It was cute in a risqué way.
Our guest list is not very long. The majority of the men in attendance will be related to me. I'm not comfortable with my FH climbing up my dress in front of my father and grandfather. On the other hand my FMIL is a pretty conservative Catholic, and she seems to expect this. Am I being prude and spoiling the fun? Do people still expect the garter belt to be fished out and tossed? There will be a handful of my FH's single friends in attendance.
