Everything You Need To Know About A Wedding Garter

Everything You Need To Know About A Wedding Garter

I've been at this whole wedding garter designing and hand making this for a long time! I've written over 1,000 blog posts about wedding garters (Yes, 1,000!) and given so much advice with everything from how to wear a garter, to who buys the garter to how many garters to purchase and much, much more. In addition to all of the sewing and designing, I've written quite literally everything there is to know about a wedding garter!

I don't know how it is possible to write that much about such a small, modern wedding heirloom, but I've don't it! I think it might have something to do with the wedding garter being the oldest wedding tradition (True!) and the fact that my garters are just so fun and pretty, but perhaps I'm being biased! And, this is a whole other post for another day!

This is truly everything you'll need to know about a wedding garter. I divided up the advice between general garter advice, then advice for wearing the garter on your wedding daym, and then the last section is specifically about the garter toss at your reception.

General Garter Questions:

Sizing and Placement:

Are you going to do the garter toss at your wedding reception? Not all brides toss their wedding garter and opt to skip this part of the reception. Some brides just get a wedding garter to save as a modern wedding heirloom.  So, I broke out the garter toss advice into its own section. This next section is a collection of advice posts specifically about the garter toss. From the timing to placement to helping your partner, this is everything you'll need to know about the garter toss.
