Does The Right Or Left Leg Wear The Wedding Garter?

I get this question all the time: does the right or the left leg wear the wedding garter on the wedding day? Time for another wedding garter 101 advice post, but before we get into it, a pretty picture…

The basic answer is this: It does not matter which leg wears your wedding garter on your big day. You can put it on your right or the left leg. You can wear it high or low on your leg. It doesn’t matter! There isn’t a right or wrong way to wear your bridal garter.

Wear your garter where it is the most comfortable for you and that’s the proper leg! That said, be sure to try on your wedding garter – and all of your wedding accessories – before the morning of your wedding. This way, if there are any problems or necessary adjustments, you can take care of them before the wedding.

Happy wedding!
