garter toss - October 23rd 2010, 06:07 AM

I read on eHow that some people think that the garter toss is too risque or a sexist custom in a wedding although I've never actually seen a garter toss before. What do you think about the garter toss?

This. I think they should have the right to CHOOSE.

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with this. I think the bride and groom should have the right to choose what they do at their wedding. And honestly, I don't see the act itself as being particularly sexist.

Risque I get, I don't agree with it but hey prudes get married too. Sexist though, um why? Someone explain that to me cause I don't get it.

All I know is that whenever I get married I'm gonna do it. I'm not a very traditional girl, but I do like traditions done within all of the craziness

I'm a bit confused as well as how this would be considered sexist.

I don't see how it is sexist as you have the garter toss and the bouquet toss, there is an activity for each sex to take part in. Men toss the garter and women toss the bouquet.

I can see how it would be a bit risqué for some family weddings especially when the groom removes it with his teeth and has his head up the brides dress...

Oh c'mon! It's just a fun tradition. I don't know why people have to take everything so seriously. Anyway, to each their own!

You're not much, goodness knows.

Wow, um...it's your wedding, if you wanna throw a bra out for the next lucky dude to catch, go for it. I caught the garter at my brother's wedding. If you don't like it, don't do it.

Some things just shouldn't be legalized...


"One of the things I regret the most of being able to imagine anything,
is having to fear nothing"


"Realty is a lot more malleable then most people think.
They just refuse to believe that they can do anything about it."

"If a simple electron has a small,
but nonzero chance of doing the impossible,
what is stopping us from doing the same thing?"
