Wedding Wisdom: Thinking of including a garter toss? Make sure you let your fiance know how much of you can be revealed to the crowd. Some brides are okay with their entire leg showing, and don't mind the groom's head going up their dress in front of grandma, but others do. It's important to tell him what's allowed and what's not. There's no reason why you should feel embarrassed on your wedding day.
