Q+A: Should I wear a bridal garter?0 Comments
If you’ve wondering whether or not you should wear a garter on your wedding day, don’t worry, we’re here to help. And obviously, we say yes! Whether you’re into wedding traditions or not, a pretty bridal garter is a really fun way to add a touch of glam to your wedding day!
Why should I wear a bridal garter?
If you’re unsure about whether a bridal garter is right for you, you should first consider how you would incorporate it into your day. The garter toss, when a groom removes his bride’s garter with his teeth and tosses it to a group of unmarried male guests, can be fun, but it isn’t your only option!
You could incorporate your garter into a cheeky little boudoir shoot with your photographer before you get into your dress and give the photos to your hubby as a gift. You could find a garter with a touch of blue on it and tick ‘something blue’ off your list. Or you could just wear it sneakily under your dress and secretly feel that little bit more special and bridal all day long!
How do I choose the right garter for me?
Firstly, choose a garter to suit your style. If you’re low-key, find a simple garter with a comfy band and a touch of sparkle. If you love all things glamorous, go all out with a detailed piece featuring lace, pearls, crystals and ribbons!
Next, consider sizing! Some bridal garters are stretchier than others, so keep that in mind when deciding on your perfect garter. Stretch ratings and garter sizes, both stretched and unstretched, can be super helpful when shopping, so keep an eye out for that info!
Finally, decide whether you want a single garter or double garter set. If you’re planning to do a garter toss, a bridal garter set is a good way to ensure you get to keep something for yourself, just in case one piece goes astray!
