Garter Toss? Keep or Cancel?

Lynnie, on September 16, 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?

    WORST TRADITION. I cannot think of anything more uncomfortable than sitting in front of my entire family (and his!!) while he goes up my skirt? NO THANK YOU.

    I say Cancel, no way I want everyone looking up my dress. So we still have to discuss.

    Cancel, it's pointless. FH hates that kind of attention on him too

    Cancel! It's so medieval, having my new husband throw my underwear into the crowd to celebrate. No thanks. (it comes from a time when the newlyweds would throw clothes to prove a marriage had been consumated, and sometimes the guests helped undress the bride *shudder*)

    Cancel, it's cringey outdated and downright awkward.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.
