i absolutely have to share this real wedding garter with you. even though i didn’t make it, far be it from me to keep you from seeing some so special.
i saw this wedding garter on the relentless bride blog and it blew me away. i’m a knitter, so i knew right away that this baby wasn’t purchased, someone hand-made this for the bride. sure enough, this wedding garter was hand crochet for kelly, by her mother as a surprise shower present. how sweet!
My mom made the garter. She’s always been crafty, and knew from the start that she wanted to make something for my wedding day that would be a nice keepsake…She made it in a champagne color to match my dress, and added some Swarovski crystals to add a little “bling” to it as well…Everyone ooohed and aaahed when I opened the box at the shower…We had a destination wedding, and didn’t do a garter toss at the reception; however, we plan to do one at the at-home reception, but we won’t be giving away that garter – we’ll throw one someone can take home with them. I’ll be saving this garter as a keepsake.
thanks, kelly, for sharing your beautiful wedding garter with me. (she is a beautiful bride, don’t you think!?) and tell your mom that i’m in awe of her crochet skills!
