Bridal baddies, listen up: if you’re a non-traditional bride and want to wear a black wedding garter set vs. classic white, go for it! The lovely Kristen of The Gilded Garter has you covered with edgy black wedding garters. And while she specializes in all kinds of bridal garter sets, we especially love this new collection of hers: it is so unique!
In this post, we’ll show you 8 black wedding garters that are trending now PLUS answer a few questions. Let’s get started!
Can I wear a black bridal garter?
Yes, of course! You can wear any color you’d like.
Will garter show through my wedding dress?
If you’re worried your garter will show through your wedding dress, it will depend on two things:
1. Where the garter is worn
Where you wear the garter will make a difference!
2. The number of layers on your wedding dress
Assuming you’re wearing a long dress, probably not; most dresses have so many layers that you’re likely to not see a garter underneath, whether it is ivory, red, blue, or black. However, a short dress? That’s another story. :)
While it is technically a thigh garter, if you wear it right above your knee, it will be less visible.
And if you’re wearing proper shapewear, and want to make sure the garter is hidden, place the garter underneath it.
If you’re worried the garter will show through your dress, skip wearing it during the ceremony and put it on for the reception (if you’re doing the garter toss).
Of course, these won’t show through if you’re wearing a black wedding dress — they’re all the rage right now, too.
