Brides aren’t wearing boring wedding garter sets anymore.
Nope! They’ve had it. Moved on!
They bid a fond farewell to those frilly, cookie-cutter, factory-produced lacy bands. Also known as: junk!
You know the cheap wedding garters I’m talking about: they are one-size-fits-all… except not really. They’re either way too tight or too loose.
Garters from factories are cheaply made, sold in mass quantities, and have a propensity to slip and slide down your leg from the moment you step foot down the aisle.
Brides are buying custom wedding garter sets instead.
Yep, brides are wising up and instead are giving a big hello to custom wedding garter sets with elegance, personality, and style.
They’re also choosing unique garter styles that show off a gothic style, boho pearl beading, Gatsby-inspired glamour, garden-inspired leaves and flowers, or a little rock ‘n roll.
Bottom line: if you’re looking for wedding garter sets that are unique, you’ll find them at The Gilded Garter.
These aren’t your grandma’s garters.
Nope! These wedding garter sets are certainly miles away from anything worn back in the day. Even the vintage-inspired styles have a little modern edge to them.
Besides, if you were still wearing the same garters your grandmother did, she’d tell you to get with the times already!
And mine would add, “You deserve to look marvelous!” :)
You probably found those old-style garters because you’re shopping at the wrong place. You don’t need to pick the same garter everyone else is buying at the store. Nor should you want to!
