Personalize Your Wedding Garter

If you are looking for a simple project to personalize your wedding day and pay tribute to your new hubby at the same time, consider making (or buying) a custom garter. There are countless online retailers who can create garters to suite your specific needs. If you have a little time on your hands and want to save a few dollars, why not make one yourself?

If you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive way to personalize your garter without any sewing involved check out this one I created to pay tribute to my hubby’s love of hockey, specifically the Calgary Flames. To create this garter I purchased an inexpensive plain white garter from the dollar store, made two bows incorporating the Flame’s theme colours and attached them to the garter using a Calgary Flames pin. This was a great no-sew project that totaled less than $10.00.
Here is a link to a site with simple DIY instructions if you are feeling a little crafty. This would be great if you want to incorporate fabric in specific colours. You could also use remnants from your dress or you could create one using fabric or lace from your mother’s or grandmother’s wedding dress to add your “something old” and create an extra special keepsake.
