    Re: garter toss

    The bride throws her flowers to the single ladies, Gil. The groom tosses her garter to the single men.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: garter toss

    I've been to quite a few weddings in my time, and I've never seen a garter toss. Maybe it's not widely done in the UK any more. The bride throws her bouquet, but that's all.

    Re: garter toss

    The garter is just higher than the knee. There is no need for the groom to crawl under her gown head first. Where did you get that impression?
