Wearing a wedding garter

History of the Wedding Garter:

Centuries ago wedding guests believed that having a piece of the wedding dress brought them good luck but this would end up with the brides dress being ripped and torn thus the idea of the wedding garter was born. Though the tradition has evolved a bit it is still incorporated into many weddings today. 

How to measure for your wedding garter?

Super easy just find a cloth measuring tape and measure around your leg where you want to wear the garter. Usually garters are worn about 6 inches above the knee but you can where it wherever it feels most comfortable. No worries if you do not have a cloth measuring tape! You can just use a piece of string to measure the distance then measure the string on a ruler, yard stick or tape measure.
