    Definitely skipping this one! In fact, we are not even having a garter.

    Skipping! My fiance comes from a pretty conservative family. I think it would be awkward for us both! I'm still going to wear one and keep it for myself as a souvenir Smiley smile

    We will totally have the garter toss at the wedding. Tehe would be fun to watch the groom take off the garter.

    This one we are doing away with, my Fiance is older and would have a hard time getting down on his knees, he was barely able to do it when he asked me to marry him lol. My FH and I are both skilled trades people, and we have both been through the ringer of very heavy industrial work for the last 25 years

    I want to skip. It's not very classy and the old folks usually shake their heads at for being too sexual lol.

    Skip! My fiancé doesn't want to do this. I think it would be fun but I want to keep it after the wedding to put in a keepsake box and if we toss it then someone else probably will keep it.

    Skip! Most of the guests at our wedding are married. Plus, I'm not thrilled with the idea of him going up my skirt for the garter in front of my grandparents.

    He won't be removing it from my leg but we will toss both the garter and bouquet back to back at the same time.

    Skip! I don't like this one so much. Seems kind of personal. He can take it off me when we get to our room later.
