- Wedding: October 2015
I’ll be undertaking it soon, I’ve been wanting to make myself a garter for a while now but I just got the most awesome idea so now I may actually get started!
I always think it’s so cute when brides get these garters that are themed to their FI’s interests. I have to put at least 1 minecraft thing somewhere in our wedding- I turned him on to it real early in our relationship and he’s hooked, and we play together all the time. It’s one of our “things”. Anyways, I got the idea to get one of these minecraft diamond necklaces, pull it off the chain, and use it as a little garter charm! Then my garter can be blue, which is one of my favorite colors, and I’ll have a something blue, haha. I like that it’s almost normal looking, it seems funnier.
So I did a paint mockup of what it will look like, they sell this exact elastic+lace trim stuff at joanns, and I’ve got some thicker white ribbon to make a bow out of. Just need to order the charm! Think $15 is too much for a garter? I wish it were less, but I think it’ll just be such a cute surprise.
Also- any tips on garter-making before I go blindly stumbling into this?
