Ladies, if you are chasing a well priced garter, check out Hello Design Crew on Etsy. Mary was an absolute pleasure to work with. She got back to me so quickly whenever I had queries, she posted very quickly to the other side of the world, and she was even happy for me to swap my chosen colour for another, which was through no fault of hers!
I am in no way affiliated with her or Etsy, but I really think that you should share the love when you find someone so happy to help out.
She does some beautiful garters in a huge range of colours and designs. I ordered three (basic ones, for me and gifts for both my sister and FSIL) in different colours with satin bows.
Based on the store pictures, I ordered “Apple Red”. When it arrived it was way too dark for my colours, so I sent Mary a message to let her know that maybe the pics aren’t right. She said hey send it back, we’ll swap it for another colour. Oh and I’ll even put a crystal/pearl dangly on it for your hassle!
I was so pleased with the pricing and the service I just had to share with the ‘Bees.
I will get some pics when I get home of the two that I am gifting, I have done a little customising of my own

To be honest, she was one of my worst experiences with Etsy.
I’m so unimpressed with her…
She was supposed to make me a custom garter and I was waiting and waiting on her and she hasn’t been responding to my messages since early August. I even messaged her to say if she can’t help me with it, no big deal to just let me know since I’m trying to close off some of these “small details” for my wedding. Still no response.
I still have time, so it’s okay but if I had shorter timelines then I’d be totally screwed…
Just thought I’d let others know.

@Negrilbride: that does suck.
I have had nothing but good responses and great work. Mary has been super accomodating and easygoing.
Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic – the colour is way nicer. She swapped the apple to the bright red for me, and even added me a pearl bead for the inconvenience (which was not her fault). I added the dangly initial for my new last name <3

I ordered my garter from here. I haven’t received it yet, but I’m hoping it’ll come soon. I loved how cheap it was, but still looked nice 🙂
