So, your wedding day is approaching and it’s time to fine-tune the details. Next up on your to-do list: the removal of your beautiful bridal garter. Ladies, tell us, how are you planning on having your beautiful wedding garters removed?
Years ago, grooms began removing the garter with their teeth. For those daring enough, feel free to keep the tradition alive and give it a whirl. However, keep your guests in mind and make sure they’re comfortable with what’s going on. You don’t want grandma’s disapproval!
If you’d like to stay on the tamer side, have your groom remove your garter by hand. This ensures that your guests are comfortable and will help you avoid any awkward situations or photos.
Whatever you choose, here are a few pointers:
- Talk with your fiancé before the festivities begin and make sure you’re both on the same page.
- Pick a song that you both enjoy and that will sit well with the audience.
- Help your fiancé by pulling your dress up, so he can easily locate your beautiful garter.
- Have fun! This is a silly moment that you’ll both remember forever. Relax and enjoy it!
