Garter with Names – Weddings

Why We Love It So: This Sweety wedding garter is completely made by hand and offers a rustic, natural look. Our favorite part is the custom name stamping along the ribbon, which makes it extra special.

Why You’ll Love It So: This garter will stun while you’re snapping those getting ready photos to the very end of your reception. It will be comfortable to wear, too, as it is mounted entirely on a natural linen ribbon. There are custom details all over this piece, including ivory pearls on the inside of the garter paired with Swarovski crystals and seed beads. The stunning flower you see in the photos below is made of ivory silk fabric and ivory silk organza fabric with a vintage small velvet leaf, Guinea feather, and a small piece of ribbon in a peach color. The ribbon color can be customized, too.

14 Monogram Gift Ideas That Will Make the Best Day Ever

** Giveaway inside!

Hi, loves! Emma here. One reason why we’re so in love with handmade weddings is because they’re so detail-obsessed. Each detail in a handcrafted wedding is lovingly pieced together, whether created by your own two hands or lovingly made by a professional artisan. The outcome is a more beautiful and personalized wedding day from start to finish.

One of the easiest ways to add a personal touch to your decor is by using your monogram. Your monogram is your own personal stamp, which can be used throughout including bridal accessories, wedding invitations, favors, decorations, and more. You can use a three-letter monogram (with your initials and first letter of your last name combined together, like mine — EAA) or your last initial (mine — A), whichever you prefer.

Today we’re sharing a handful of our favorite monogram wedding ideas to make your wedding stand out. We’ve found cake toppers, custom cufflinks, decor pieces, and jewelry, with a little something for everyone. There’s even a monogram cowgirl hat for rustic brides! Plus, we’ve teamed up with Advantage Bridal to give away one personalized bridal gift to a lucky reader as our latest wedding giveaways. Find out what it is below!
