I’m not really sure what a typical garter costs. The ones I am looking at are around $85.

Holy bajesus, WHY are they so much money?  I’m not doing anything garter related so I never looked at any.  Are they typically this expensive?

Wow those are expensive! I bought mine for about $6 at a wholesale suppliers. It was white and had hot pink ribbon that matched perfectly to my shoes. It wasn’t the most comfortable thing (kinda scratchy material), but hey, it was $6 🙂 It didn’t fall down at all either so I was happy.

@bridetobe7844:

I was looking at garters from the same seller. I just think her work is special, I don’t mind paying more for something extraordinary.

The etsy ones are very nice! my friend had one at her wedding made by florriemitton and it was beautiful. it was a very non-traditional garter and i believe it was rather expensive, but people actually took notice of it and commented how pretty and refreshing it was to see something so gorgeous and not at all tacky

I bought my set (ivory garter and toss garter) for $6 at michaels. They were perfectly fine and cute, and I didnt care that much about them anyway. I spent a lot more on *other* special undergarments though!

Also I wanted to say its perfectly easy to make your own garter, any JoAnns fabrics would have the supplies to make any one of those etsy garters, so if they are out of your budget think about making your own if you like to DIY.

I got mine from http://www.gartersbygingersnap.com/   they were $40.00, great quality, super fast shipment and great communication.  She even sews a little blue heart on the inside if you want for your something blue!

Michael’s has them cheap, under $5.00.  Or like the previous post said make one yourself.  I think it’s ridiculous to pay that much for some elastic and ribbon, but if it’s in your budget then I guess go for it.  I’m going to attempt to DIY.  I’m going to buy the one from Michael’s and then just get some cute ribbon and a little charm to add to it.
