Catching the Garter

Is catching the garter an event men celebrate or fear?


All eyes are on  you.  As the men gather around the dance floor by requirement… in fear, their significant others gather around and wait in anticipation.

Every guy knows whoever the ‘lucky’ man is to catch the garter will be hearing about it for weeks after.  None of the men on the dance floor can out right look like they are trying to avoid the garter, but it never seems that the guys with girlfriends/dates at the wedding are putting forth their 100% effort.

We all know the myth: whichever guy catches the garter will be the next one married.  If this is such a myth than why do I sense true anxiety from some of the guys walking on to the dance floor when the DJ announces the garter toss?!
