If I had a penny for every time I heard someone refer to our garters as "garter belts," I would be quite wealthy by now. Er-- at least enough to take an extravagant vacation. (insert laughing emoji's here)
The truth is-- there is a big difference between a wedding garter and a garter belt. So, in an attempt to bring clarity to this ever-confusing mix up, below is a quick visual guide regarding what a wedding garter is and what a garter belt is.
Ok, now we are talking! Do you see that gorgeous sparkling band around the bride's leg in the photo above?! That's a garter. (also commonly referred to as a "wedding garter" or a "bridal garter.")
The garter represents the oldest wedding tradition. It is a small piece of decorated material that is worn around one of the bride's legs during the wedding ceremony and reception. The garter is usually made with elastic so that it holds up while she is walking and dance.
The wedding garter is as a small little expression of a couple's big day and it is a keepsake meant to be cherished and passed on through generations. The wedding garter is an heirloom for the bride!
