My future mother in law made my garter for me shortly after we got engaged. It’s a gorgeous and simple blue garter with lace trim on the top and bottom. She is really talented with sewing/embroidery, and she emroidered it with my fiance’s and my initials, along with our wedding date. 

For anyone who is going the DIY route, I found this site with very simple instructions for how to make a garter yourself.

I got my garters from Narfer99, here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/narfer99.  Though she is on vacation right now her garters are pretty affordable and I think she may have a firefighter one as well, though she is very open to customizing!  I wanted an Ohio State garter, which she didn’t have in her store at the time, but she was very responsive to all my questions and was super fast in getting them to me.

I got stretchy material for the main portion thats going to hold all of it up…I got the sequin kind bc I love sparkle, but thats not for everyone. Then I got a really pretty lacy material to sew under it…. and then I will make a bow to put on it and prolly put a rhinestone or two lol.

Are you guys wearing one or two garters? Does it matter?

I’m going to have my mom make my garter.

Do I get the garter back from whomever catches it? I always figured the bride gets it back. I mean who would want to keep it?
