Garters on NBC’s Today Show Throws a Wedding

Posted in Custom Garter Designs, Press & Praise

It is a big day in The Garter Girl’s world! My stylish custom wedding garters were featured on NBC’s Today Show, complete with Kathie Lee Gifford putting one on! Watch the video below or here

Nick and Leah were married this morning on the annual NBC’s Today Show Throws a Wedding. To help celebrate their big day, I made three custom wedding garters for Today Show hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

Check out the custom Today Show wedding garters…

I hand embroidered the Today Show logo on the first wedding garter. It is white satin with an orange grosgrain stripe. I tried to match the style and color combo on the Today Show logo…

The next custom garter was made for Kathie Lee Gifford with her initials “klg” hand embroidered.  It is white grosgrain with a blue and white polka dot stripe.  I wasn’t quite sure what to do for her, so I designed something that was fun, just like her…

The last custom garter was for Hoda Kotb. I designed this garter one to match their Hoda & Kathie Lee website header. I think this garter is really neat with the navy grosgrain and hot pink feathered satin stripe. I hand embroidered Hoda’s name on it to match the font on the website.

It was so great to make these custom wedding garters for NBC’s Today Show Throws a Wedding and to be a part of the action. I wish Nick and Leah nothing but the best!

Special thanks to Kathie Lee and Hoda for having fun with my stylish wedding garters!
