I never heard you weren’t supposed to buy your own. My mom happened to buy mine, but I would’ve bought it just the same.

Funny story…on my wedding day, upon realizing I forgot my garters at home (we were getting ready at a hotel), I sent one of the groomsmen to go buy some at Michaels! He was all in his tux and everything 😛

Mine was a gift, but it was a surprise and I would have bought my own otherwise.

If I didn’t buy my own garter I’d most definitely be garterless come wedding day lol

I bought my own as well.  I’ve been the Maid/Matron of Honor in two weddings and never purchased the garter for the bride.

@DCSquared: Um…it was a little embarrassing opening the gift in front of everyone at my bridal shower that is for sure! Then she said “I made two; one for the reception and one for later!” and winked at me.  I was blushing a lot, but it was really sweet and absolutely adorable.
