5 reasons why you should wear a garter on your wedding day.

If you have just got engaged you may be wondering if you should or even need to wear a garter on your wedding day. 

Its a lovely tradition that has stood the test of time and here is 5 wonderful reasons why you absolutely should wear one. 

1. Tradition

The tradition of wearing a garter originates from the belief that the brides dress or garments worn on her wedding day would bring good luck! This lead to the creation of the wedding garter which could be tossed and whoever caught the garter would receive an abundance of good luck.

4. Family heirlooms

Garters make the perfect wedding day keepsakes, small enough that they can be easily stored away but meaningful enough that you will never throw them away!

Beautiful mementos like these soon become family heirlooms so why not be the first in your family to begin a sentimental family tradition, after all whats not to love about meaningful keepsakes.
