Garter Toss? Keep or Cancel?

Lynnie, on 16/September/2019 at 09:50 Posted in Wedding reception

I have to confess that I've never actually seen a garter toss in person! Smiley surprise But apparently 37% of grooms still participate in this reception tradition! Will this toss tradition make the cut for your wedding?

Do you want to keep or cancel this toss tradition?

    Cancel, it's cringey outdated and downright awkward.

    Cancel. We're just not interested in doing this.

    Cancel! It’s disgusting, cringeworthy & immensely sexist. No, thank you.

    Cancel. My FH was against it to begin with and then the DJ explained how he would do it and now FH is wayyyy more against it.

    CANCEL. It is so cringeworthy when this is done and I really didn't want to have any part of it lol.

    Definitely cancel. Again, we don't have many single friends plus I find the whole thing super uncomfortable. Our parents would be watching - urgh.

    Ab-so-f*n-lutely cancel! No one's goin' up my skirt except my FH, and even then, not in front of 100 people!! I'm no prude, but c'mon, this one's ridiculous.

    CANCEL. My FH and I both agreed this is nothing but awkward for everyone involved- bride, groom, guest. There are also not a lot of single guys at the party.

    Cancel. This is one of my most uncomfortable things I have ever witnessed at a wedding. Definitely NOT happening.

    Oh my, the last thing I wanted was to have everyone look at my hubby go up my skirt. Luckily, my husband was on board with nixing it.

    Keep, but I don't want my FH doing the whole "going up my dress to remove it" in front of everyone thing. I'll just slip it off and he can fling/throw it.
