The History of the Garter

Posted on February 15, 2019 at 2:50 PM

Flashback facts this Friday

The Garter

Throwing the garter is an old English custom. Male guests, some who had a few drinks, would often rush the bride to see who would be the first one to rip the garter off her leg. “Pardon me”!! :o These men felt that it would bring them good luck. Some brides would remove the garter before things got out of control and she would toss it out to the guests.


Today, the groom playfully removes the garter himself and tosses is out to the single men. To me, this is a fun, safer route to go!
