What is a garter?
- A garter is often worn by newlywed brides. It is the groom's privilege to remove the garter and toss it to the male guests. The symbolism to deflowering is unambiguous. Historically, this tradition also relates to the belief that taking an article of the bride's clothing would bring good luck. As this often resulted in the destruction of the bride's dress, the tradition arose for the bride to toss articles of clothing to the guests, including the garter. Sometimes, if the guests were drunk, they would try to remove the garter ahead of time, and consequently the tradition arose for the groom to remove it himself and toss it to the guests, in order to protect his bride from molestation by the guests. -
