  • NEWS: GARTER TRADITION IN SUMMARY

    8 August at 16:21 from atlas

    The tradition of "tossing" the garter is known to date back to 14th Century France. At the wedding the bride would throw the garter to the gathered guests and it was believed that the recipient would receive good luck and fortune.

    At today's weddings it is now common for the groom to remove the garter and toss it to a group of unmarried men. The "catcher" is thought to be the next to marry.

    The garter is worn on the bride's right leg just above the knee.
    The bride may wish to keep a little good luck of her own and wear one garter to throw and a second garter as a special keepsake.
    To view our range of garters for your special day visit our garters gallery.
