@freshflowers:  This but in red lace.  I overestimated the size of my thigh so I’ll be wearing it pretty high, like around my neck 🙂 oh well, it’s pretty.  There’s a decent shot it’ll annoy me and I’ll put it on right before the garter toss.  I paid $24 for the set.

I overestimated my leg too! I got this from an etsy seller.

I went fairly simple and made my DIY garter out of the straps from an old tank top and some blue felt. It also was my “something blue” on the big day.

@jennmariee:  I love your garter!!! it’s gorgeous!!!

 

My sister got me mine as a birthday present. It comes with a toss garter but I won’t be using it. I think mine is also too big, but eh, who cares!

Haven’t found the exact one I want yet, but It’ll be lace with pearls, in white.

@EmilyJoy:  Thank you! I was a young bride (23). Everyone always says you regret picking pink(rose) because it’s an age thing. Totally fallacy. It has always been my favorite color, and I love the softness in all the photos. 🙂

It’s not like I picked bubblegum! Eep!

My sister’s garter was too big, and I knew from that experience to go much lower than I thought for the measurement.  This one fits perfectly, and hopefully won’t show through the fabric of my dress.  No toss garter for me, I figured I wouldn’t keep one anyway.

i bought mine a little larger as i was afraid i would have to wear it around my calf coz my thunderthighs were too big… it fitted perfectly!! thought it would annoy the hell outta me but wore it all day no problem! didnt do a garter toss so hubbs got to take it off that night!

it had a tealy/blue polkadot ribbon with a padlock charm on the bow and i attached a charm my sister gave me too – it was a ‘good luck’ charm with a horseshoe and a blue gemstone.

@OnceUponATime:  You won’t regret it. I’ve always loved pink too. Now I’m 33 and I STILL love pink. Actually,my wedding gown is about the color of your garter. Won’t they all be surprised 🙂
