    I would absolutely skip, but my FH is insistent on doing it. So, I guess we'll do it.. quickly.

    Skipping. I've always found this cringeworthy and the fact we are having a small intimate wedding with mostly family attendance just raises the creep factor for me. The idea of one of our relatives "winning" a piece of my lingerie is just so gross.

    Agree!! I get where the tradition comes from but I've never seen this done in a way that wasn't absolutely cringeworthy!

    Yeah...no we definitely skipped this one. I'd rather crawl in a hole than have my grandparents watch my husband crawl up my dress.

    SKIP! I'm still wearing a lace garter with my new monogram, but it's not seeing the light of day during the reception lol

    Skip for sure. This is such an awkward tradition that no one will miss. I hate watching them and will not take place in it!

    Skipping this one so hard! I can't even use a public bathroom so there is no way I could handle being exposed like this! I shudder thinking of this happening in front of our families and church leaders! ACK and my boss!!!
