@LBalazi:  wear 2 one on each leg lol, I don’t think it matters really whichever side it feels comfortable on i think.

I’m going left as that’s where it’s more comfortable.

I wore both garters on my right leg. My DH took off both and threw the toss garter and wore mine on his arm the rest of the night.

I always just assumed left, though I have no idea why. I think I’d find it more comfortable there, so that’s where it’ll go 🙂

this is a great tradition/etiquette question. I’ll bet there is some old answer to this one. I’m gonna keep checking this thread to see if anyone has the answer, this is why I love this site

I just asked my MOH this yesterday…. I’m wearing mine on the right, but that’s because my dress has a slit on the left.

I always assumed on the right leg, not sure why though.

I’m wearing mine on my right because that’s what I did for prom (aka-the last time I wore a garter!)…..haha I don’t really have a good reason!

@LBalazi: Never thought about this. Never thought about having a keepsake garter either. My friend is making a nice little DIY garter which, thanks to this post, I realized that I would like to keep. Luckily my dress comes with a free garter so I guess I’m using that for the garter game (we’re going a game instead of the usual toss). I will have to see though how it would feel wearing two garters since I’m not very sold on the idea on having something on my leg through the entire event.
