I have pretty pictures to share today of a custom wedding garter that I recently designed for a bride using the lace from her mother's wedding dress. This was a bit of a funny story of how this bride came to me and I ended up designing her custom wedding garter.
First, she purchased my exquisite wedding garter style, which is made with the lace from a vintage wedding dress. A few minutes after she purchased this wedding garter, she emailed me and asked if I made custom garters (Yes!) and could I make the garter using her grandmother's wedding dress (Yes!).
Flash forward a few weeks, her mother sent me her mother's wedding dress and I was busy making the bride a wedding garter! The grandmother's wedding dress was perfect for the exquisite wedding garter style as I was able to make her the same style of wedding garter with the something blue satin and ivory pearl details, but I used the lace from her mother's wedding dress. It was perfect and turned out beautifully!
Here are few pictures that I took of the garter and what was left of the grandmother's wedding dress. You can see that her dress had chocolate brown satin stripes under the lace that I had to take off to make her garter.
This wedding garter is so gorgeous, right!? I couldn't stop taking pictures, as you can tell!
