27 Wedding Garters & Bridal Garter Sets Too Sexy to Toss
Wedding garters are in a lingerie category all their own. You may notice that when you search garters, most of your results come up as garter belts, or lacy accessories that go around your hips and feature suspender-like straps to hold up stockings. These don't slip off easily and are not what you're looking for for the wedding garter toss. So, what is a wedding garter? Wedding or bridal garters are bands of fabric that circle only the leg. Traditionally, the groom removes it from the bride during the reception, tossing it to the single men in the room to deem who will say "I do" next (think of it like a bouquet toss for the guys).
In modern day, to-be-weds are predictably divided on whether or not to include this tradition as part of their wedding reception. Couples nix it for any number of reasons—parents and grandparents in the crowd watching, its very gendered roots—we could go on. But, news flash: You can still wear a garter without opting into the toss tradition. Select a sexy and stylish one to complete your wedding night look for only your partner to see.
To find the perfect wedding garter for the tradition, narrow your search by including "leg garter" or "wedding garter" and you'll find more filtered results. Or, peruse our list below: We've rounded up 28 selections that say chic instead of silly.
Most garter for the bride options are simple bands of lace or ruched satin. If you want to get more creative, Etsy is worth a deep dive: There's a treasure trove of unique handmade options that make gorgeous keepsakes, from rose gold vines to Swarovski-studded tulle to tie-on styles that fit all styles.
Hanky Panky Dotted Tulle Leg Garter
This simple garter swaps classic lace for whimsical dotted tulle, nodding to tradition with a playful update. A delicate ribbon is tied in a bow for a little something blue.
Never Say Never Garter
Stretch lace and elastic closures make this wide garter option a comfortable fit; plus, it rests flush with the leg, whereas many ruffled options add extra bulk that may show through a sleek dress. It's available in three shades, including bridal white, but we love the pop of pink.
Mel Wedding Light Champagne Simple Lace Garter
We love the way this wedding garter features bridal-inspired floral embroidery, making it feel like a purposeful extension of the dress, rather than an afterthought. Chic embroidery is applied to a strip of tulle and closed with elastic, so it slips on, but won't slip off. Plus, it's slim—and cost effective!—enough to double down: Buy and wear two to make it a set so you have one to toss and one to keep.
Love, Vera Embroidered Heart Garter Belt
This is not a tossable garter style, but rather a sweet something to wear under your gown for the wedding night. But, we'd be remiss not to include it in our list: It's a true ode to love with an array of playful hearts.
Intimissimi Lace Garter
For a more statement look—and one that's easier to catch during the wedding garter toss—opt for a bridal garter like this one from Intimissimi. A silk satin elastic band holds it in place around the leg, while an eyelet lace ruffle drapes down. The scalloped edge is an ultra feminine finish.
Agent Provocateur Lindie Lace Garter
This lingerie label puts a chic spin on sexy in all its pieces, and this bridal garter is no exception. A swath of subtlety beaded floral lace with a wavy outline is attached to a comfortable elastic band with dual silver rings. It makes a statement on the front of the leg while being comfortable all the way around.
HAH One & Done Garter
Lace, ruffles, elastic band: It doesn't get more classic than this simple leg garter for a wedding. Its slim design will be less noticeable underneath your gown, and the elastic makes it easy to slip off when the time is right.
Bespoke Bridal Shop Aphrodite Pearl Cluster Garter
Yes, pearlcore even extends to bridal garters. This super thin wedding garter is ultra on-trend, with an elastic velvet band embellished with a cluster of pearls in varying sizes. Plus, it's named for the goddess of beauty and love—all the things you're hoping to evoke on your wedding day. Trust us, you won't want to toss this one.
Glistening Garter in Dusty Blue
If you're willing to splurge on your wedding garter, The Garter Girl is a go-to. The independent designer hand makes all kinds of leg garters, and can even handle completely custom couture orders. We love the Glistening Garter from her Just Say Yes collection, which features sparkle-embedded tulle around a blue silk elastic band. Personalize it with custom embroidery such as your new monogram or initials.
Bow Guipure Embroidered Garter
Vintage brides, this one's for you. This ivory silk garter belt features bow-inspired guipure lace appliqués in a nude beige hue, giving us all the pretty old-school lingerie vibes. For bra-friendly dresses, pair it with the label's matching bow guipure embroidery bra to complete the chic look.
Bridal by Eloquii Embellished Garter
If you're a bride that's all about embellishment, consider adding a little sparkle under the dress as well. This sweet bridal garter from plus-size powerhouse Eloquii is just the ticket, with a bedazzled charm on a slip-on elastic band.
Anna Maguerite Laurel Leaf Garter
A beautiful bridal garter for bohemian babes, this unique style features a rose gold laurel leaf adorning a pink tulle band. Pair it with a real or metallic flower crown and a flowy dress to keep the look consistent inside and out.
Embroidered Appliqué Bridal Garter
For a guaranteed perfect fit, opt for a tie-on bridal garter. This one gives glam vibes with floral embroidery, three-dimensional tulle flowers and even some pearl embellishments. If you're not in the garter game, this could also be worn as a headband, or even a sash or belt to add a little embellishment to the waistline of your gown—it deserves to be seen, after all!
Silver Six in Her Shoe Letterbox Tie-Style Bridal Garter
Another tie-on option with a more classic design, this Etsy bridal garter pick features delicate vintage ruffled lace and dual mother of pearl buttons near the tie.
Natori Bridal Embroidery Garter
Not into lace? This fully satin elastic garter is clean and modern, with a palm-inspired embellishment at the center (we love it for a beach wedding). The label makes a whole matching set that includes a bridal eye mask and a chic and useful bridal lingerie bag.
Aphrodite Diamond Thigh Garter
Here's a unique approach: Why not make the garter a visible part of your gown? This tiered and bejeweled version adds a little bling to high-slit skirts by wrapping around the leg and peeking through with each step you take (whether down the aisle or on the dance floor). You won't want to toss this one: Instead, save it to style with shorts or a bathing suit on the honeymoon.
Bluebella Ivory & Blue Bridal Garter in Lace
Rendered in the daintiest lace for with just the right amount of ruffle, this is a classic wedding garter choice for the bride.
Six Stories Garter in Pale Blue
We love a garter that leans into the playful, rather than sexy, element of the garter toss tradition, and this one does just that. Soft gathered tulle is secured with an elastic band, so it's as comfortable as it is cute.
Wedding Garter Set
If you've decided to do the garter toss at the reception, search instead for wedding garter sets. Made specifically for brides, these garters come in a set of two: One to toss to the crowd, and one to keep as a wedding memento. Needless to say, they're double the fun.
Astrid Floral Lace Garter Set
Looking for a blue wedding garter? (It's the perfect "something blue," after all.)

The three-dimensional blue embroidery is hand sewn with tiny Swarovski rhinestones for a touch of sparkle.
Ivy Lane Design Something Blue Vintage Garter Set
Wayfair may not be your typical go-to for all things bridal, but we found this chic surprise there. The vintage lace wedding garter set features three-dimensional florals in blue and off-white and sweet rhinestone embellishments. And, while you're there, check some items off your registry!
Heirloom Nola Crystal and Lace Garter Set
We love the blue lace that serves as a band for this wedding garter set, which comes with two crystal-embellished garters and is available in standard and plus sizes. The crystals definitely add some weight to the garter, but there's a silicone lining in the lace to prevent slipping.
For Ceremony Garter Set with Ostrich Feathers
Are you jumping on the feather trend in your bridal attire? Go all the way with an ostrich feather-adorned tulle garter for the bride. It's made-to-measure—meaning each garter is crafted to the bride's exact thigh measurements to guarantee a perfect fit—and available in six different shades, from nude to ivory to blue. Add on the simple lace tossing garter to complete the set.
For Love & Lemons Mae Teddy
Here's an all-in-one option for your wedding day (and night!). The Mae teddy has two detachable leg garters (one to toss and one to keep), attached via suspender straps to a feminine floral corset bra. A tulle tutu-inspired ruffle completes the piece for a sexy wedding night look.
Embroidered Garter Set
If you've decided to do the garter toss, we say fully embrace the cheekiness of the tradition.

The slimmer band—the one your groom will toss to the crowd—is embroidered with "nice catch." Though the same could be said for the groom himself!
Be My Cinderella Delicate Rhinestone Wedding Garter Set
Want a wedding garter set that leans boho, perfect for beachy brides? Look no further. This Etsy creation features a tulle elastic band, but the showpiece is the delicate floral design with imitation pearls and rhinestones woven through wire.
