It’s really important that your leg measurements are accurate, so that your Wedding Garter is a perfect fit for your special day.
Firstly, you need to decide exactly where it is on your leg that you want to wear your garter and if you are going to wear a second garter for the Garter Toss. How to Wear Your Wedding Garter
Leg Measurements for a Perfect Fit
Usually it is 10-16cm or 4-6” above the top of your knee.
Take the measurement for your Keepsake Garter. Remember, your leg measurement will be where the elastic in your Garter will actually sit (i.e. the middle of your garter). If your Wedding Garter has a 9cm width of lace, there will be 4cm of lace above and below where the elastic will sit – don’t forget to allow for the lace.
1 Using a tape measure wrap it around your leg where the elastic will sit, pulling the tape nice and firmly, but not too tightly.
2 Write down this measurement. You can type it into the Text Box before you add your Garter to your Shopping Cart.
Wearing a Keepsake Wedding Garter and a Toss Garter
If you are wearing two garters (one being your special Keepsake Wedding Garter and the other one to Toss) I think it is much easier to wear your Toss Garter on the opposite leg to your Wedding Garter.
Rather than wear your “Toss Garter” throughout your Wedding Ceremony and Reception you can ask your Bridesmaid to slip it onto your leg just before you intend to toss it. Garter Toss!
That way, there is little chance that your Groom will slip off the wrong garter! A gentle pat on the leg your Toss Garter is on will help him retrieve the right one!
When you are purchasing your Wedding Garter/s, you can type your leg measurements directly into the appropriate text box just before you add your Garter to your Shopping Cart. This will ensure that your Wedding Garter/s will be made to fit you perfectly.
When ordering your Bridesmaid’s Wedding Garters, please type in their names and leg measurements together. eg. Alison 53.5cm, Laura 48.5cm, Lucy 61cm, Julia 41cm etc.
