The wedding garter is a key component of the bridal attire.
Worn underneath the bridal gown, the groom retrieves it and tosses it to the single men in attendance.
The garter toss is an integral a part of the wedding day, yet many brides don’t understand its history and meaning.
So, Why a Garter?
Centuries ago, superstition was that owning a piece of the wedding dress would bring good luck.
This led to wedding guests essentially attacking the bride to rip off a piece of her gown.
So brides started to wear a specific article of clothing to be given out as the lucky piece: the garter.
Another belief was that the garter was a symbol of the newlyweds consummating their marriage.
Family and friends would take the garter as proof of consummation.
Both of these ancient beliefs result in the garter being removed and given to someone attending the wedding!
