Wedding garters are one of the final details of a bride’s look. A small, decorated with lace, beads, ribbons, flowers and other various details, a bride’s garter brings extra sweet romance to the celebration and wedding night.

There are several reasons that make brides wear a wedding garter:

  1. The first and most common is following the wedding tradition. Many brides opt for the old tradition of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”. This tradition in particularly popular in New Zealand. Adding a bit of blue colour on your bridal garter has become quite popular among our brides.
  2. The brides feels really feminine and sexy on the big day knowing all the details have been thought through.
  3. It is also a lovely surprised for a groom.
  4. Often an accessory turns into a hereditary family value. If a wedding dress is difficult to maintain, and it can go out of fashion, then a garter looks stylish and sexy at all times

How to choose a bridal garter?

To choose the right wedding garter it is a good idea to check the quality of the fabric, the beadings and embroidery details. Moreover, it is important to make sure the band will be comfortable to wear on the day. There is also a variety of designs and colours so pick a style that is closely aligned to your wedding dress look or something that you are just madly in love with.

Which leg does the bride wear the wedding garter on?

There are no strict rules on this, but it is believed that the garter should be worn on the right leg just above the knee. In fact, a bride can wear more than one garter. If the bride wants to use only one garter, it is worth keeping it on the right side. This means that the accessory will be ‘charged’ with the necessary love energy and bring good luck to its future owner, who will soon start a family.
