I know Hobby Lobby has them. Also try a Michaels or other craft store is there isn’t a Hobby Lobby close by.

You could drop by any David’s Bridal or Alfred Angelo in the area and probably just pick one up there. I just ordered mine off amazon and had it in 2 days!

if you go in the trim (by the yard) section at jo-ann fabrics….i know they have garter material…all you have to do is cut and sew (or glue)

I would suggest going to any craft store. They have plenty! It’s the Wilton brand more than likely.

The bridal shops I went to all carried them in stock. I know victoria’s secret and bloomingdales also have a few in stock.

Don’t stress!  I ended up buying a La Perla garter off of gilt.com- it’s so pretty- and then left it in the hotel room the day of the wedding.  For the garter toss my DOC had extras in her car, so I just shoved that one on and we did it.  In the long run it mattered like 0%…so don’t get too worried about it.  Jo Ann does have them in store for about $3, too.

Go to Etsy.com – there are tons of shops with adorable garter sets!! Just ask the store owner if they can express ship to you, or search by region, you might be able to meet somewhere to save shipping costs, and get it in right away too!

I was also going to suggest etsy but if you’re in a real rush find the nearest “adult” shop in the area, many lingerie sets come with garters. Another option is to find the nearest baby store and get one of the garter-headbands they use.

I just saw them at walmart the other day. SUPER plain, but it’ll do the trick if you’re in a pinch. They’re by the crafty things.  Good luck!
