Looking for a cheap wedding garter is a sensible and fun option especially as one of the many traditions at your wedding will be to toss your wedding garter!
Some brides have been known to have a spare wedding garter just for the toss!

The tradition began in the 14th Century when it was considered lucky to have a piece of the brides clothing. To save her modesty brides began to toss personal items like her garter. For luck hunting wedding guests this is now the norm.
The groom will remove the garter and toss it to the single men of the wedding party. This is normally done at the same time as the toss of the wedding bouquet and as the tradition has evolved the winner of the garter will dance with the winner of the bouquet. They are then assumed to be the next to be married, but not necessarily to each other!
Some couples will also pin money to the garter to encourage more male guests to take part!
Enjoy this saucy wedding tradition!
