I have great news…all stylish wedding garters purchased from The Garter Girl by Julianne Smith now come with a keepsake pouch. Check ’em out…
I’ve been working on packaging options for a while now. I wanted something that was just right and truly reflected my company, my style and the experience that I want each of my clients to have when they come to me. I tried plastic bags with cute stickers and then I tried a boxes with ribbon, but I just wasn’t happy. I wanted to keep the shipping costs down, plus neither of these items are very environmentally friendly.
I really wanted something that the brides could use to save their garter in after their wedding was over. I’ve always said that your wedding garter is the perfect item from your wedding to save…not too big, not too small. These little cotton bags stamped with my logo where just the ticket!
My girl jessica helped me to design a little card to tie onto the bags with a note that says…”Thank you for embracing the garter tradition with style. Please use this bag to save your garter as a keepsake.”
Of course, I make all these little beauties myself. I tried to be a big-girl business owner and hire someone to make the garter pouches for me. but, suffice to say I had a tough time doing it and getting a quality product. I even asked my mom, who is a much better sewer than me, and she turned me down! In the end, I played around with different patterns and styles until I got the simple, basic look I was going for. Besides, I like that I can just make them anytime I need more and I can adjust the sizes as needed.
I got the stamp for my logo at rubberstamps.net. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with them. They helped me out big time when my first package arrived empty with the stamp clearly ripped out and stolen. (Not sure who wants to steal a stamp of my logo!?) and then they helped again when I was having a stamping issue. Thanks, rubberstamps.net!
So, that’s it! Now brides who order from the Garter Girl by Julianne Smith will not only get a super stylish wedding garter design, but they will get a bag to save their garter in after their wedding!
Note: Since April 2010 all bags are stamped with The Garter Girl by Julianne Smith logo.
