The Road to Mrs. – Where are You Getting Your Garter?

Could this be my wedding garter?

One of the things still left to check off of my wedding to-do list is purchasing a garter. To my surprise and (disappointment), Victoria’s Secret is lacking in this department. [Confession: I have a gift card to VS that I was hoping I could use to snag a garter but no cigar.] So when I couldn’t find a garter after searching at traditional brick and mortar retailers, I turned to Etsy of course!

There are seemingly hundreds of garters to choose from on Etsy for the penny pinching simple low-key bride to the balling, the more bling the better bride. I’m smitten by the one in the above pic and at $29.95 it works for my budget. But I’m not convinced it is the one for me just yet. I’m still looking — I’ll keep you all posted!

Where did you or do you plan to purchase your garter?

  1. I just got my blue garter from David’s Bridal…It had a 2013 charm hanging from it, and it was very affordable :)

    @Jackie – Ha! DB is one of the b&m stores I plan to check out before making a final decision ;-) Thx for sharing.

  3. My mom made my garter…it actually seemed fairly simple – she just sewed together some blue lace that I picked out from Michael’s with some elastic ;-)

    Great idea! Thanks, Nae.

  5. When I was MOH a few years ago one of my duties was to pick up a garter for my friend (she was getting married overseas and the country’s wedding culture is different from ours). I ended up getting 3 for her to choose from. One from David’s Bridal, one from Hallmark and one from Michael’s. Good luck
