Opa silk wedding garter by The Wedding Garter Co.

Ladies, if you’re looking for a wonderfully charming and unique bridal accessory, have a look at the Opa silk wedding garter by The Wedding Garter Co. This garter, made from a band of rich silk, is complemented by two delicate handsewn opal flowers. These flowers are edged with glass seeds and flawlessly finished with simple sparkling crystal centre, giving the flowers the perfect amount of sparkle yet not distract from the gorgeous iridescent glimmer of the opal petals.

This type of garter is one of the most comfortable garters to wear on your wedding day. The silk, that completely encompasses the elastic band, keeping your garter in place all day, is wonderfully soft and the overall feel of the garter is especially light. You will most likely forget that you’re even wearing a garter!

Opa comes three signature colours - ivory, cornflower blue and lavender blue. The ideal accessory to finish off the traditional bridal saying- ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’!

We've listed 'Celie' on our BrittenSampleSale store on Etsy.

We have currently listed on our sample sale store the very delicate floral crystal hair vine - Celie. This headband combines hand-pressed silk flowers intertwined with crystal seeds creating an enchanting bridal look. This headband would suit hair styled up as well as with long dreamy curls. All our bridal accessories are completely handmade in our ancient boutique in Bradford on Avon just outside Bath.

There is very little wrong with this headband, the reason why it has been listed is because the delicate flowers have slightly closed.

Wedding earrings with a touch of gold!

If you’re looking for the perfect pair of earrings to wear on your special day but finding it difficult to choose a pair that will complement your wedding dress, why not look at some of our bridal earrings that have a hint of gold.

As you can probably see in our ‘Wedding Earring Collection’ most of our earrings come in either a silver or gold design, and one of the many reasons why Sarah designed them this way is because some wedding dresses suit accessories that have more of a white crystal sparkle, while other gowns may be better accessorized with warmer toned accessories. The simple yet effective design of adding signature gold beads along the edge of the earring gives these bridal earrings a wonderful vintage feel.

Florence earrings by britten

If you love sparkle, the ideal pair would be the Florence in gold - these earrings are statement, stylish and ever so perfect for a bride that might be wanting to add glamour to her bridal outfit. However, if you are wearing other bridal accessories, such as a necklace or a hairpiece, and do not want distract from them by wearing one of our more statement pairs, our smaller designs such as Clementine, Ava or Tilly would be great options.

We also have an elegant timeless pair of drop earrings called Addie. This pair is made from a combination of freshwater pearls and glass beads intertwined with gold wire. Addie is ideal if you want to have the pearls accents as the main feature with just a touch of sparkle.

If you’re still unsure about which pair to choose, then why not make an appointment to stop by our boutique in Bradford on Avon to discuss all the options through with Sarah who will undoubtedly provide you with lots of helpful advice!

Noelle gold Christmas garter by The Wedding Garter Co.

Looking for a wedding garter that would complement your wedding dress this festive season? Then why not have a look at Noelle- a gold tulle garter by our sister company, The Wedding Garter Co. This garter is wonderfully delicate with just the perfect about of sparkle made from the softest gold tulle. Noelle is finished off with a simple yet elegant  iridescent pearl- the perfect hidden accessory for any vintage bride. This garter would be the perfect gift for a bride this Christmas, a bride does not always have to purchase a garter for herself -it can be a thoughtful gift from either a bridesmaid, mother of the bride or even the groom himself!

This garter, from a limited edition collection, would make a wonderful family heirloom which The Wedding Garter Co. hope all their garters will become. You might even consider purchasing a toss garter instead tossing these wonderfully delicate handmade garters at your wedding. A toss garter, as seen in the picture below, is made from a simple band of lace with a single pearl. It can be worn either directly below you other garter or simply on your other leg (just remember to tell the groom which one to take off if he's tossing one on your wedding day!). The garters are presented in a wonderfully luxurious white box for safe keeping.
