Whether the wedding garter ceremony makes you gasp or laugh, it is one that has definitely stood the test of time. In fact, garter-style dresses are so popular right now that they are almost considered normal. Even married women who do not traditionally wear a garter in traditional church weddings still wear a garter as an extra sexy addition to their wedding night.
What is the wedding garter?
The term “garter” refers to a type of stockings worn by married women. They are similar to other types of stockings worn by women, such as garters and corsets, but garter dresses differ because they have a very short hemline at the foot. Traditionally, they are only worn on certain occasions, such as on the wedding day. However, they are coming more into fashion due to their practicality and their sexy appeal.
A wedding garter toss
A wedding garter toss is a fun and sentimental wedding favor that you can give to your guests to remember this fabulous event. They are a unique keepsake from a wedding that will be a conversation piece for years to come. Although they are a keepsake, they also make an excellent personalized gift for a new mother or grandmother. They are easy to make, so they are a great option if you don’t feel like baking something from scratch.
Make it yourself
If you are making them yourself, there are a few things you should keep in mind. You should always choose the right fabric, such as chiffon or silk, and remember to have the laces sewn right to the material. Also, be sure to purchase the correct size garter–a big long piece that goes up the leg. When shopping for your wedding garter toss, look for a cotton blend with a natural shine. Because they are worn on the wedding day, many people opt for satin or silk garters, but you can never go wrong with a simple cotton piece.
If you are not sure about what type of garter to buy, you can always take a look at your dress. If you are wearing a short dress, stockings with a short leg that ends at about mid-calf are ideal. This gives you plenty of room to add a fun and stylish touch to your wedding garter throw. If you are attending a formal or grand reception, you may want to opt for a more elegant length, such as a spaghetti strap or a full-length train. No matter what your taste, there are plenty of styles to choose from.
Some people think that wearing a wedding garter with a full skirt is a little too much information for a guest to take in. However, as long as your dress is the right length and you choose a short leg length that does not make you feel exposed, you will not have any problems. In fact, the shorter your legs are, the better. If you are concerned about showing off your legs, opt for a style that will show them off to their fullest. As long as your lingerie drawer does not look like a junkyard, you are in the clear.
For something completely unique, look into purchasing a bridal lace-up wedding garter. You can choose from a simple white design, or you can purchase one with an interesting pattern that is embroidered. Lace is very romantic and can be used on any type of bridal lingerie. Even better, you can find a lace-up option that will be made of 100% cotton for the ultimate comfort.
If you want something a bit more elegant for your wedding garter, why not opt for something blue? The color blue has been used for centuries to represent the idea of purity and innocence. This will definitely add an element of class to your party.
