    Skip. It's a sexist and antiquated tradition IMO.

    100% skip this! I do not want my FH going up my dress in front of everyone! That it also makes me cringe every time I was at a wedding and they did it!

    Skip, same reason for the bouquet toss. It's cringey and we don't have a ton of single friends anymore.

    Though I think the garter can be extremely funny, FH would definitely feel awkward and most likely look awkward trying to be funny so it's best avoided.

    I'd rather dance and have fun than have all of these to slow down the flow of the night!

    Keep, we saw someone say how they were doing it to the Mission Impossible theme song and both found the idea hilarious.

    Skipping 100% as I guest it’s always uncomfortable for me to watch, and we are saving ourselves for the wedding night so his sneak preview will NOT be in front of our guests!

    Totally skipping this. The history behind this as well as the actual process is cringy.

    Absolutely not. I'll probably still wear one, because I found a cute one, but we will absolutely not be doing a garter toss.

    Definitely skipping. It can be so cringe-inducing. Also, since we're older, we hardly have any guests who are single.
