What is a toss garter, and do I need one?

Tossing your garter is fun and part of an ancient tradition (it's a toned down version of ripping the brides clothes from her to save as good luck charms!) but you probably don't want to give your Wedding Garter Co piece away! 

Our toss garters, made here in our workshop in the same size as your main order, are simple lace or velvet elastic garters that you won't mind giving away quite as much.

American and Canadian brides tend to toss their garter at the ceremony itself but in the UK, Australia and the EU brides make it part of their hen do.stretch lace toss garter
