It’s YOUR wedding. Feel free to have as much fun as you’d like. That being said, Cleveland is a one of a kind city and you are a one of a kind couple. In recent years, we at Team SPE have noticed some of the fun traditions like the bouquet and garter toss fading away in their popularity. Let’s explore why up to 60% of couples are ditching this once staple tradition.
You Want To Keep Both Your Bouquet & Garter
Lets’ face it. The bouquet is pretty expensive. It’s pretty. The garter may not be as costly as a nicely designed bouquet, but it’s personal and private and the bride might just want to share that with her new husband only.
Do You Really Want Your Husband Up Your Dress?
The entire act of removing your garter while listening “Ignition” by R. Kelly or “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye or even “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins might sound fun, but step outside of the situation briefly and look at what is really happening here. The brides father and grandfather are watching her new husband go up her dress around 100 – 150 people. I guess it also may depend on how traditional or conservative you and your family are, but also keep in mind that children could also be there.
Maybe The Bride And Groom Are Both Shy?
Perhaps you are one of those couples who really don’t like the spotlight on them? Of course the spotlight is on the bride as the groom goes up her dress. The best solution here would be for the groom to possibly remove the garter in private.
