I wrote something last night regarding the garter/bouquet toss for another piece
No. no, no, no. It’s fun when you’re 14, but once you exit puberty, there’s something so base about scuffling with other single women for some cheap prize that you don’t really even want. As for the garter, it’s hard to make a guy reaching up a girl’s dress and pulling off an undergarment look anything other than...what it is.
I don't really feel quite that strongly about it as all that, but I do wonder what all the hoopla is about.
I realize that I'm probably opening up a can of something here, as my three married siblings did it (one as recently as a week ago)...but I'm wondering. Married people: did you do the garter/bouquet toss at your wedding? Why or why not?
Unmarried people: Do you like it? Love it? Is anyone sort of ambivalent? As married folks, is it more fun to watch or participate?
