Bridal Garters, Wedding Garters, Prom Garters, Homecoming Garters, Cheerleader Spirit Garters, Tossing Garters, Keepsake Garter. In North America, the bride wears two garters; one as a keepsake garter and the other for the throw away.
-Both garters are worn on the right leg just above the knee.
-The groom removes the throw away garter from the brides leg, sometimes he removes it with his teeth, but more appropriately nowadays he uses his hands. He does this while the bride is sat in a chair.
-After the garter is removed, he then throws it to the single male guests.
-The keepsake garter is removed later in "private" during the honeymoon night
