I don't know who started this unfortunate trend of having brides sit down to have their garter removed for the garter toss.  The only thing that can happen in that situation is to have the groom look like he is swimming upstream under your dress in front of all of your family and friends.  How embarrassing!  No wonder brides are disillusioned with the garter toss.  To have your garter removed in a much more alluring and appealing way is to stay standing, take off your shoe, reach down and grab the bottom of your dress on the SIDE of the leg that has the garter on it, raise your skirt just high enough for your garter to show, and position your leg attractively out to the front and side.  The groom can then kneel down and slip the garter off your leg. 

There is a famous hitchhiking scene in the classic old movie "It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.  Claudette stops a car by raising her skirt and showing a shapely leg.  If you have time to watch the whole scene,  it runs about 3 minutes.  At around the 2 minute mark is when Claudette  raises her skirt and shows her leg.  Otherwise, here is a picture from that movie to show how to raise your skirt temptingly.




Much better than a groom swimming upstream.
