One quick look around Bespoke Bride and you’ll find it’s pretty obvious that we’re not HUGE fans of being traditional, you wouldn’t find me throwing a beautiful bouquet that someone has poured their heart into creating just because it’s tradition and I’m not sure I would wear ‘something blue’ on my wedding day but one tradition I do really love is the garter.
I think that there is something so beautiful, sexy and elegant about them when they’re done well and one company that get’s it right every-single-time is the Wedding Garter Co. Their garters range from simplistic to pretty and embellished to fancy, all oozing elegance and style! In case you’re not familiar with The Wedding Garter Co you’ll be pleased to know that every single garter is handmade and has been lovingly crafted in their Bath workshop. Meaning each item truly is an heirloom piece that you can cherish!
Right, let’s talk dresses shall we? Because it’s not always easy to know what style of garter you can wear with different types of wedding dresses. For example, if you’re wearing a dress or skirt that has lot’s of layers then you really can choose from a wide range of garters, in fact you could wear any type that you like, whether it’s lace, silk, tulle or embellished, the garter world is your oyster!
However, if you’re going to be wearing a tight fitting gown then you might want to consider a simple silk garter, The Wedding Garter Co have garters (Like the ‘Hera’ garter) that have been specifically designed to be more sleek and discreet, making them the perfect hidden accessory. (Top Tip: Wear them just above the knee to keep them more concealed)Details
