The Garter

I made my garter! The actual garter is my something old, since its my best friends garter that my fiance caught at her wedding. I just made the flowers and attached them. Originally, I was looking into some garters on Etsy, but at $40+ I really didnt think it was worth it. It was so cheap to make that I think I'm going to actually toss this one instead of spending the time to make another to toss. The whole thing took me less than 5 minutes to make, since I already had the extra flowers laying around. I think it would have looked better if the garter were black, but since I already had this one why waste money on another? Plus I like the idea of incorporating something from my BFFs wedding.

Did you make your own garter or did you buy it?


  1. I bought my garter set from Etsy because I am so sewing challenged. Yours looks fantastic - I love the flowers and I think it's really cute that your something old is from your BFF's wedding day :)

  2. Thanks Heather! There were some amazing garters on Etsy.

  3. Love that! I bought my set on Etsy, which is weird because I actually made almost everything else for our wedding..yours came out great though! Love those flowers. Found you via wedding bee follower here :)
