• How To Choose Your Wedding Garter

    You've picked your venue. Your wedding day shoes. Your bridesmaids dresses. Your bridal jewelry. Your flowers. Your groom's shoes. Your bridesmaid's shoes. 
    If you have to make one more wedding planning decision for your big day, you just might scream! Which is why we are here to help. If you are reading this, then the chances that you have decided to wear a wedding garter are high. Let us do the shopping for you, shall we? 
    Here is my number 1 piece of advice regarding how to choose your wedding garter: one, look at the design of your dress. Then, two, look at yourself as a person. 
    Allow me to explain....
    You should first choose a wedding garter that compliments your gown, either in the way of its shape or the embellishments that are on it. If you are wearing a form-fitting style like a mermaid or a trumpet, you will need a slim and sleek garter that lies super flat against your leg so as to avoid any major bulging underneath the skirt of your gown. BUT--- if you are wearing a gown that has a full skirt (ie: an A-line or a ballgown) then you can wear any garter that you like from our collection. That is to say, you don't have to worry at all about its size or shape due to the fact that it will be impossible to see its outlines underneath the skirt of your dress. 
    Next, I would look at the beading and design of your gown as a whole. Does it have pearls? Does it have opals? Is it more of a lace-based gown and not so jewel-heavy? 
    If it has pearls, then we highly suggest our Venus Pearl garter.
    If it has opals, then we highly suggest our Ariel Opal garter.
    If it doesn't have much sparkle...and you want to ADD a touch of sparkle, then we highly suggest our brand new Infinity garter.
    If you are looking for something without sparkle (something that is very simple and lace-based) then we recommend our simple alencon lace toss garter. 
    If you are looking for a garter that checks off your "something blue", then we highly recommend our ever-popular blue pearl garter. 
    Honestly, I could just keep going and going. What matters most is what you think compliments your personal style and your gown the most. 

    Do you love sparkle and consider your wedding day the chance for you to be a real life princess for a day? Are you classic bride who airs on the side of conservative? Are you a boho bride who loves the outdoors and loud music? Your own personality is a great source for inspiration for your bridal garter. What are the first things you are drawn to? 

    In fact, in an attempt to be truly helpful here, below are a few garter suggestions based upon different personalities we have noticed in the past within our clientele. Which one sounds like YOU the most?
