    Not sure yet. My fiance finds it really awkward, but said if we are keeping it he wants to make it funny.

    Keep..? I'm so on the fence about this. My family is ultra conservative so it may not go over well

    Probably will be doing this since the fiancé wants too. I'm not awkward so it should be fun

    I'm a little nervous about it but we are keeping it since I am doing the bouquet toss.

    We are skipping the garter toss. We have members of our church family coming, and we feel this would be a very uncomfortable situation for a garter toss.

    Again we are having a pretty small group so it would just be weird. There might be two single men attending, one being my daughters boyfriend....so yeah no....

    Hell to the no. Everything about this tradition stresses me out and we are not doing its counterpart, the bouquet toss.

    Nope, we won't be doing anything like this. No garter toss, no bouquet toss, no silly kissing games, nada.
