post Post  

A bridal garter is a decorative elastic band many brides wear around their thigh during the ceremony. The Knot[1] explains both the ancient and modern traditions behind wearing a bridal garter. The risque garment is traditionally removed by the groom at the wedding reception and tossed into the crowd for single males to try and catch.

Typical costs:

  • A bridal garter can be purchased alone or as part of a set, where one item is a "tossing garter" used for the reception and the original garter remains a keepsake. Prices vary depending on the quality of materials used and the number of embellishments.
  • An inexpensive bridal garter typically costs $6 to $20. These garters are made with inexpensive materials and are simply embellished. Daisy Days[2] sells a blue rhinestone garter for $17.
  • A moderate bridal garter typically costs $20 to $35. These garters are often embellished with embroidery, crystals and pearls. Advantage Bridal[3] offers a satin garter with Swarovski crystal charm for $24, for example.
  • An expensive bridal garter typically costs $35 to $75. These garters may be customized to suit the bride's tastes and they are generally sold by high-end retailers. For instance, Neiman Marcus[4] sells a white, ruffled lace garter for $74.

What should be included:
  • Bridal garters may be all-white, white with an accent or a variety of colors. Blue garters are popular for brides wishing to incorporate "something blue" into their wedding wardrobe.
  • Usually, garters are one-size-fits-most, fitting thighs 15- to 24-inches around. The typical placement is three-inches above the knee, and the garter should fit snugly around the bride's thigh without being too tight.
  • Plus-size garters should fit thighs measuring larger than 24-inches. Eye Catching Creations[5] offers all its bridal garters in plus and petite sizes, at no extra charge.
Additional costs:
  • When ordering bridal garters online, expect to $4 to $10 for standard shipping within the U.S.
Shopping for a bridal garter:
  • The Wedding Channel[6] lists tips for tossing the garter and incorporating the tradition into the wedding reception. Similarly, Make Weddings lists popular songs to play while the groom removes the bridal garter.
  • Veil Shop[7] and House of Brides[8] sell inexpensive and moderately priced bridal garters.
  • For unique bridal garters, search eBay[9] or Etsy[10] , where sellers provide handmade options incorporating jewels, feathers, custom colors and more.
