The tradition of the garter for the bride dates back to quite distant times. Garters were once exclusively a matter of necessity and only then became such a symbolic part of the bride’s wardrobe. In general, they were attached to stockings with ribbons and other ties to keep them, that is, stockings. As a result, it became symbolic that the groom removed the wedding garters from the bride on their wedding night. Now the garter is worn in the amount of one piece, and it is already exclusively symbolic, since it does not hold any stockings — those times have already passed. But even now the groom has to pull the garters with his beloved. Therefore, garters for the bride are chosen carefully so that they look coquettish and elegant on the leg. Let’s look at how to choose the right element of the wedding wardrobe, so that both the bride and the groom are satisfied.
Wedding garters for the bride
Rubber band or tape? On sale, you can most often find garters with elastic bands, which are easy to put on for the bride and quite easy for the groom to pull together. But it is worth paying attention to the fact that such garters must be chosen very, very carefully, since too tight elastic can cause quite unpleasant sensations and itching. Therefore, try to try on the garter before buying, to be sure that it does not press you anywhere, and you do not experience discomfort. But if you are making a purchase via the Internet, and there is no possibility of trying on, then pay attention to the garters, which are fastened with ribbon ties. Such models are less common, but they are no less comfortable and beautiful.
Design and color scheme. When choosing a garter for the bride’s leg, it is necessary to decide in advance on its design. For example, it can be a simple classic garter decorated with ribbons and ruffles, but there are also more original options, like garters with lace flowers. It all depends solely on your taste preferences, as well as the style of the bride’s dress, because the garter should be in harmony with it. If you can’t find something in the stores that would perfectly match your wishes, you can order a handmade bridal garter or even make it yourself, which will be quite symbolic. Regarding the color scheme. White is considered a classic color, but, as you know, in our time it is customary to break stereotypes and standards. Therefore, for example, a red or blue bridal garter will look chic and so on.
