    This one I don’t think we will do, I’m a bit shy, but have a wild side so kind of undecided?

    Hard cringe ! and I am a pretty out there person but I don't want my family to watch that lol. It's the weirdest tradition honestly.

    DITCHHHH I hate this one the most. Why would I want to force my friends and family to watch my husband crawl up my dress? Also I'm wearing a fit-and-flare style so I think it would be nearly impossible.

    Haven't decided but leaning toward no. My family is relatively conservative and I cringe at the thought of my father watching this.

    Ditching. I am not a fan, and my FH's family is a little more traditional southern and modest, IMO, and would probably not be fans either.

    Since I am thinking to ditch the bouquet toss then it doesnt really make sense to do the garter toss. I also think I would be really uncomfortable with it with my dad and all my moms friends

    Ditch. My thighs are too big for a garter and it’s mostly family so that would be awkward lol

    Nope. My fiance doesn't like being the center of attention, and says this makes him feel uncomfortable so we're just gonna skip it.

    No, I can't even wear a garter under my dress, its form-fitting -- and I always thought this tradition was weird

    Hard pass. It just something about having your husband go up your dress in front of all your family that's just a little weird to me, and I'm just not a fan.

    This was never a question for us. A weirdly sexual act in front of everyone you know, including your colleagues and old aunties? Not for me.
