Wedding Garters

Throwing wedding garters at weddings are considered one of the oldest surviving traditions. Yet history tells us it wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

The tradition originated in England during the 14th century. Wedding garters were created on the wedding day from the bride’s dress. Well that’s a lovely idea you say. Not quite,  guests would literally tear at her gown in the hope to obtain their own piece for good luck. Hence later the wise and wonderful design of the separate bridal garter accessory evolved.

Here’s an even stranger garter tradition.  In the middle ages, the French wedding custom was to have guests follow the happy couple back to the bedroom to witness the consummation of the wedding. Obtaining the garter afterwards was proof the deed had been done!

We can thank our lucky stars we no longer practice such weird and intrusive rituals. These days, it’s still a fun wedding tradition for you to enjoy at your reception. Removing  bridal garters are basically the male equivalent to brides tossing their bouquets. The bride sits on a chair so her new husband can take her garter off her leg and toss it to a crowd of attending bachelors. Supposedly, whoever is lucky enough to catch it will be next to get married.
