@FutureMrsWeston:  I think your hubby would prob really think the second one is cute but think the first one is sexy….all just depends on what you like!

 

There are much cheaper options for garters similar to the first one on ETSY much cheaper

 

Here are some similar options if you want to go that route

 

This is 25.50 for the set. I know you don’t need the 2nd one but I’m sure you could message the shop owner and she could give you a different price for just the one which would be even cheaper!

My hubby is a UNC fan so I found a UNC basketball garter on ETSY! That was the one thing I kept a secret from him and it was the first thing I ordered. I loved the look on his face when he saw it because the night before one of our friends said something about a UNC garter and I played it off. “awww man I wish I would have known they made those I would have loved to have had one”…. I say go for the second one!

Yea, definitely check out Etsy, as pp said.  They have such a wide variety and for every price point.

@FutureMrsWeston:

I actually wound up going with a Charger one for my hubby….since that is his favorite team. I actually got it on ebay for $10!

I was actually like you not really wanting to do it either b/c I didn’t have a garter toss or anything. I just got it for him and he liked it!

So I also wanted to throw it out there to check ebay as well!

I don’t think it will matter if there’s a stark contrast between your dress and your garter, but I thought the garter sort of helped me feel pretty all the way through – so if its going to bother you I’d just go with the first kind.  You can probably make something similar to that with a little lace ribbon from JoAnns for super cheap.

If you’re handy with a needle and thread, gloryshouse.com sells great appliques, so you can make your own much cheaper.

@FutureMrsWeston:  I would go with the 2nd option. I might be a bit bias since I got a garter of my fiancé’s favourite hockey team. I hate hockey, but I know that he LOVES it and will love the garter.  After all, it is for him Wink
