Garters, often worn with garter belts, are not only one of the oldest wedding traditions but they are also a major fashion statement. So what is this wedding tradition? The groom is meant to remove the garter and throw it to the wedding guests, whoever catches the garter is meant to put it on whichever lady catches the bouquet. Traditionally, they would have a first dance. Garter belts are even worn by ice hockey players today to hold up their socks! Celebrities love the look: Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Kylie have all been known to rock this look on stage. Lingerie companies also love this sexy trend, often worn by Victoria Secret models for example. We all need this attractive item which is both steeped in history and tradition.
