    Skip! It wasn't even a question between FH and I!

    I'm not sure yet about this one. I've never been one to base my decisions on other people's input, I always ended up doing what I want. I'm not even sure how FH feels about this one so we will see.

    Skip. Super cringe-y. I don’t know how anyone is comfortable doing this in front of their friends and family. I would be mortified for my father and grandmother to witness this at my wedding.

    Skip. Family doesn’t need to see, let alone catch, my under garments!

    Firm no. I've seen this go horribly wrong and I'm totally not the type to have a man up my skirt...in public.

    May or may not keep. I've left it up to FH. We toyed with the idea of removing the "single people" aspect of it and just offering some cute prize for whoever caught it. If we do this though, he won't be crawling up my dress with his face. It would probably sit around my knee and he could just grab it with his hand.

    Skipping, I am personally not fond of the tradition.

    I always disliked this one, even more than the bouquet toss. I don't like the symbolism and I don't want a bunch of people watching my husband reaching under my gown to pull something off my leg, possibly seeing more than I would like.

    We are skipping the bouquet and garter toss.
