A wedding garter is not something that every bride decides to wear on her wedding day. It is a little wedding tradition that either a bride chooses to incorporate or leave out all together, but here at Britten, we think that these little traditions do add something wonderful to a wedding. One of the longest standing traditions for a bride to include is the old saying 'something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue'.
'Something new' for the bride is most often her wedding gown, 'something old' and 'something borrowed' a piece of jewellery leant to the bride by a family member, and 'something blue' could be a blue flower, a blue thread sewn into the hem of a wedding gown or a really elegant and timeless wedding garter!
An example of a garter that would stand the test of time would be the Catherine lace garter by The Wedding Garter Co.! Catherine is an exquisite example of how elegant a garter should be. She's made from the finest of materials. The lace used in this garter has been made by the same family since 1845! If that's not proof alone that this garter could easily become a true family heirloom - it could become 'something old, something borrowed, and something blue' for future brides! Catherine is wonderfully light to wear especially when worn just above the knee.
This garter arrives beautifully presented in a handmade lace dust bag and branded box for safe keeping. Exactly what you need to keep it safe for many years to come!
