What's a toss garter?!

Tossing your garter is fun and part of an ancient tradition (it's a toned down version of ripping the brides clothes from her to save as good luck charms!) but you probably don't want to give your main garter away! 

The Wedding Garter Co's toss garters, made by hand in their workshop in the same size as your main order, are simple lace garters that you won't mind giving away quite as much.

American and Canadian brides tend to toss their garter at the ceremony itself but in the UK, Australia and the EU more, but by no means, all brides make it part of their hen do.
