I don't think I've seen one of these posts lately and just got mine not long ago so I want to share it! I'm not showing it to my FH (I told him he can see my dress, but this is his surprise). I posted a few weeks ago asking for which garter was best, and I went with the top favorite, so thanks for all your help, I'm very happy, it turned out great! However I sat for like 10 minutes trying to decide whether I wanted a yellow ribbon, a turquoise ribbon, or a white one. I figured turquoise would have looked pretty patriotic (not what I'm going for) and white wouldn't stand out. But it was surprisingly one of my tougher wedding decisions lolol!!

Sorry the picture isn't the greatest, without flash it looked pretty dull, with the flash it looked really bright. Oh well.

Show me yours!

    I kept going back and forth between something simple and something nerdy like Harry Potter themed but didn't want to pay the $20-$30 for a nerdy one so I went simple yet classic with this beaut!

    I haven't purchased it yet, but I'm torn between these two! I don't have pearls at all incorporated in my outfit, so I'll probably go with the first one. We're also not doing a garter toss, but I'd still like to wear one. I found them on Etsy.

    All of those are so cute! Shelby, love undercover themes! My sister had undercover cheetah print in her skirt and the ribbon of her dress. I wish I were that creative.

    It was a last minute decision to do a garter toss. I just went to JoAnns and spent a couple dollars on one of theirs. I put it on right before DH had to take it off. Wearing it all day was out of the question. It was too uncomfortable. For about $3 the fun it leads to can't be beat! The men fought for the garter and the catcher gave my sister a crazy fun lap dance putting the garter on her, lol. I had no idea the dj was even going to do that have the guy put the garter on the bouquet catcher. Video is priceless!

    I have not chosen my garter yet, and I might just make it myself. However, just wanted to share this shop on Etsy that is having a big sale on these garters right now. You can customize the rose and the lace. The garter is on sale for $4.75 plus $3.30/shipping. Smiley smile

    I don't have a picture of mine. We did do a toss, but even if we hadn't I would've worn one. Seth enjoyed taking it off in the hotel room Smiley smile

    This is the one I bought from Etsy, I am going to try to find 2 hearts to attach on there to tie in our theme. FH doesn't know what it looks like yet, He thinks its Washington Redskins.
