When it comes to weddings, we just can’t keep the traditions away. No matter how modern the wedding is, there are some customs that should never be overlooked. Wearing a Garter is one such cherished tradition. Whether you are planning to toss it or keep it, a garter must be considered an essential part of the whole bridal ensemble. Made from glistening rhinestones an ribbons, this small bridal accessory adds to the appeal that makes the bride appear irresistible to the groom. At Alisa Brides, we pride ourselves on being the original designers of the all crystal garter, and we strive to always showcase the freshest collection of wedding garters that you can either toss out to your wedding guests or keep for yourself as a cherished memento of one of the most important days of your life.
The tradition of bridal garters comes all the way from Medieval times when a piece of the bride’s clothing was tossed towards the guests. It was supposed to bring good luck for the guest who caught it. It is said that bridal garters were traditionally removed by them as well. However, in modern times, it is either removed by the groom or the bride. So, for an item that will get public attention and exposure, you need to make sure it is the best you can find. You can buy garters online here even if you don’t plan to toss it to the guests. Compared to the rest of your attire, it is small and can easily be kept as a reminder of your wedding day.
At Alisa Brides, we offer single keepsake garters as well as a set for those who wish to wear a pair. Made from the highest quality Czech crystals, elasticized ribbon, or lace, our garters are sold by size to provide the best fit. Please measure your leg five inches above the knee and refer to the size chart under Description. You can buy a blue garter to give to the bride as her ‘something blue’. We also offer other colors and custom designs and if you choose to wear a one of a kind piece.
