A Lovely Selection of Wedding Garters
for the Bride.

Wedding garters come in creations of satin and lace and are usually adorned with crystals, pearls, gemstones or even little cherub charms. They are traditionally part of the bridal accessories. They come in an assortment of colours and they can be bought in singles or as wedding garter sets – one to keep and the other to toss.

Due to an old Victorian rhyme, it was traditional for many brides to wear "something borrowed, something blue" on their wedding day. The borrowed item signifies the transfer of happiness from a happily married woman to a new bride. A blue item symbolizes purity and fidelity.

Bridal garters are one of the oldest wedding traditions and still a significant part of bridal attire. For some interesting historical reading on how the toss of the brides garter came to be, there are two well known theories. Their popularity dated back to England in the 14th century. The groom tossed the bridal garter at the roudy guests – each were eager to own a piece of the brides undergarment, it was meant to bring good luck and fortune to the person who caught it.

This Popular Rhyme
Originated from the Victorian Times

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in your shoe.

The modern garter tradition

The tradition nowadays is for the bride to wear two garters if she is to engage in this ritual. A special garter to enjoy as a keepsake and a less expensive one to be tossed by the groom.

The groom would remove the bride's garter from her leg, then toss it over one shoulder to the bachelors, the man who captures the garter is the next to marry and in some customs slips it on the leg of the unmarried woman who caught the bridal bouquet.

One of the bridal garters is kept as a family heirloom, then borrowed from other newly weds to bring goodluck to their marriage. Due to an old Victorian rhyme, it is traditional for many brides to wear "something borrowed, something blue" on their wedding day. The borrowed item signifies the transfer of happiness from a happily married woman to a new bride, while the blue item symbolizes purity and fidelity.

Tossing of the garter is part of many traditional wedding celebrations and is an act of the wedding festivities. However, some couples choose not to have this ritual as part of their celebration.
