The fashion for brides to wear a garter became popular in Medieval times.
In these times, after the ceremony and wedding breakfast the guests would follow the couple to their bedchamber. Here they would grapple with the bride's gown, trying to take something for good luck. It became the custom for bride's to wear a garter which people would try to take rather than taking part of her clothing.
