Garters!?

Ladies! I'm trying to pick out a garter and realize that I have almost no idea where to look for one (outside of Etsy or Fredrick's). So...what did you pick and why? I'm leaning more towards something simple since literally everyone will be seeing it, but I'm (not so secretly) wanting to do something a little...flashier to make FH smile. Smiley smile

Also, since we're all WW friendly, how much did you spend on yours? How much is one supposed to spend on something like this?

Pictures if you have them!

    Sorry. I'm help. I'm not wearing one. I have seen some really cute ones one's on here though. If you don't really care what color it is, or if it has a specific theme (i.e. sports team) try one of the craft shops. Michael's has them for about $5 to $12 dollars. http://www.michaels.com/search?q=wedding%20garters

    I spent $9 on mine, red and black to match the wedding colours. I got it online!

    Wish I had a photo (they don't have it on their website either). I found one that is gorgeous, looks like one I almost purchased from Etsy, but I found it at Hobby Lobby! I believe it was $12.99 and I snagged it for 50% off, its both a keepsake garter and a toss one. The one I almost purchased on Etsy was $25.00, soooo glad I ran into the one at HL.

    Before that I bought a simple, single, black and white garter at Michaels for $3.00 on clearance lol.

    Mine came with a set my mother in law ordered. It came with a guest book, flower girl basket, ring bearer pillow and pen. Prior to ordering this set however I went to google and searched wedding garters and it pulled up some very pretty ones. Ebay also had some pretty ones.

    I'm wearing one, but we're not doing a garter toss. I bought mine on Etsy as well.

    I just got mine at Michaels and spent like $5. I put some bling on the center of the bow to add something to it. Possibly thinking about getting one on Etsy though... they have some cute ones

    I bought two from etsy - one was a nice simple white lace garter for "public" view and a sexy red and black one for later that night

    I'll be wearing one but we're not doing a garter toss. I have a Green Bay Packer one. My mom bought it for me, and it's my favorite team but not FH's, and she likes to use the opportunity to put Packers stuff anywhere to tease FH Smiley smile

    JuneBride who is the Etsy seller if you don't mind me asking? I love your garter and am wondering if the seller has different colors.

    The two I like on etsy are between $30-40 and very elaborate Smiley smile Both are lace and have nice toss garters. Mine is going to be seen for pictures so I wanted it to be really nice!
