The Garter and The Toss
We get a lot of commentary about the garter toss from our customers. For such a simple thing, it stirs a lot of feelings among brides. The garter is kind of a right of passage. It is often the bearer of the “something blue”, and really just a part of the bride’s ensemble. There are so many choices, so there is a style for everyone. Many garter packages come with one garter to keep and one to throw. That way there is one for a keepsake, maybe to pass on to a daughter or a good friend. It is the finishing touch on your wedding day, a hidden piece of lingerie that your new husband can admire.
As a bride, I definitely wanted to wear a garter. My garter was lacy and so pretty. I loved looking at it in the package and thinking that I would wear it on my wedding day. It was the last thing I put on to go and marry Bob. I loved the feeling of that beautiful garter hidden under my dress. Bob and I didn’t want to do a garter or bouquet toss. We didn’t have many singles coming to the wedding. We agreed that as singles we didn’t ever enjoy being on the dance floor catching the garter or the bouquet as we were usually out with the kids.
Whatever decision you make, it is the right one because it is yours. A wedding day is about the bride and groom, so make a choice that suits you both!
