Our Wedding :: Bouquet & Garter Toss

*Sidenote: Today is Philip's & my 6 month wedding anniversary! We decided for the 1st year of marriage we'd celebrate the half-way mark. After that, it'll be a normal yearly celebration. We're going to have a nice dinner at Ruth Chris. It's hard to believe it's been 6 months already, but we've been very much absorbed in our new lives of marriage with many new things happening. I can't wait to transition this blog into "newlywed" status when the recaps are done and share with you all that is going on! Until then, enjoy the 2nd to last wedding recap!

Getting ready as the girls gather 'round. "Single Ladies" by Beyonce was at the height of popularity, but it was too obvious to me. I had the DJ loop the Sex and the City theme song. It was perfect!

About to toss...

And there it goes! Note everyone in the background watching in anticipation hehe.

Onto the Garter Toss with Mr. P reaching in and putting on a little show ;)

I knew I wanted to do a bouquet toss, but I wasn't sure about the garter toss. When I asked Mr. P if he wanted to {without mentioning my concerns} he said "of course, it's tradition". I didn't want to do the whole raunchy, head up-the-dress type garter toss and that was really my only reason for considering not doing it. When I told Mr. P what I wanted since we'd be in front of family and all, he was completely on board and made it fun, yet respectable.

Did/Do you have any concerns about the garter toss?

We played "I Know What Boys Like" by The Waitresses. Such snooty lyrics, but it was cute in this context especially with it being an 80's song. It was super fun.

Almost off!

Wiggling around his prize.

Mid throw! Wish the actual garter got in the pic, but cute nonetheless.

The winners: a friend & a bridesmaid!
