Wedding Garter Meaning

A wedding garter is an accessory that a bride will wear on her wedding day, secretly hidden beneath the folds of her wedding gown. It is worn on either leg, just above the knee. Traditionally a groom, at some point during the wedding reception, will attempt to remove the garter (with his teeth if he's feeling brave) and toss it at a group of single men - it is thought to bring good luck to who ever catches it.
