How to Toss the Garter at a Wedding

Posted June 29, 2014 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Grooms: now this is how to toss the garter at a wedding! Place it over a football and have the gentlemen go long. Now, obviously, you won’t want to toss the garter like this indoors (I can only imagine the accidents that would occur if someone misses), but outdoors? Tent wedding with nearby grassy open field? Game on. This idea is especially perfect if hubby-to-be is a football fan. Or, feels sheepish about flinging lingerie across a formal room to male friends, family, and coworkers.
