The garter toss – it’s a major wedding tradition and it’s one of our favorites – but just why do we do it? That’s what this Fashion Friday is all about! Do we toss the garter just for fun, or is there meaning. What about other cultures – do we all celebrate the garter toss the same way? Read on for the answer to these questions and many more!

The origin of the garter toss is actually pretty wild – considering how modest we usually assume our ancestors were! Let me tell you, they weren’t that modest when it came to the garter toss! In olden times the garter was removed and shown as proof that the newlyweds had consummated their marriage! How’s that for a yikes – all your new relatives and your closest family huddled together in your bedroom!!! In fact, the reason why we toss it now is that the garter (actually any undergarments for that matter!) were considered good luck, so many a crazed relative would try and grab up whatever they could reach!!! I think that counts as a double yikes, and makes me happy we’ve moved the garter toss from the bedroom to the reception! - See more at: http://blog.weddingstar.com/the-garter-toss/#sthash.rvexfgTA.dpuf

Originally, the tradition of the garter toss was actually pretty wild – considering the way it was back in the olden days, but when it came to garter toss, it is a completely different thing! In olden times the garter was removed and shown as proof that the newlyweds had consummated their marriage! How’s that for a yikes – all your new relatives and your closest family huddled together in your bedroom!!! In fact, the reason why we toss it now is that the garter (actually any undergarments for that matter!) were considered good luck, so many a crazed relative would try and grab up whatever they could reach!!!

The wild tradition of garter toss has moved its space in this modern day, from the bedroom to the reception, that doesn't mean it has become less wild.You might see and find in some wedding, the groom chose to remove the garter with his teeth. A bit like catching the bride's bouquet toss from the bride, but the garter toss is believed to bring some good luck for a man of an impending marriage as soon as he catches the garter. And that's why, just like the bouquet toss from the bride, the garter toss will surely get some competitions going on for the guys to catch it, that's why, our product range for the garter, has included a tossing garter and one for your keepsake (with the gorgeous designs of our garter collections, you would want to keep one for yourself, won't you? )
