- Wedding: October 2009 - Church Ceremony/Reception at The Waterford House
I know I’m probably going to sound really niave when I ask this, but I’ll ask anyways 🙂 What is the purpose of two garters? I’ve seen garters sold in sets on Etsy and I’m wanting to know if 1) I need two and 2) where do I wear them? One on each leg? I get that one is probably for the garter toss and one is to keep, but I was wondering if you wear both at the same time. Thanks!!!

Not a silly question!!! you are correct that one is to toss and one is to keep. You wear both on your wedding day. The “toss” garter is usually less intricate and you place it lower on your leg (closest to your knee) so that the level is appropriate as your family will be watching him remove this one 😉 then the one to keep is more intricate and detailed and is placed at a higher level for him to see later that night….you might want to inform him of this ahead of time so that in case he sees the higher one he doesn’t get confused 🙂
Hope this helps!!
