How Will You Have Your Garter Removed?

So, your wedding day is approaching and it’s time to fine-tune the details. Next up on your to-do list: the removal of your beautiful bridal garter. Ladies, tell us, how are you planning on having your beautiful wedding garters removed?

Years ago, grooms began removing the garter with their teeth. For those daring enough, feel free to keep the tradition alive and give it a whirl. However, keep your guests in mind and make sure they’re comfortable with what’s going on. You don’t want grandma’s disapproval!

If you’d like to stay on the tamer side, have your groom remove your garter by hand. This ensures that your guests are comfortable and will help you avoid any awkward situations or photos.

Wedding Month Superstitions

Wedding superstitions are everywhere. You just can’t seem to escape them! But, the one that shocks us the most is an old superstition that informs us of the wedding months that guarantee lifelong happiness and the ones that may leave you with never-ending problems. If you’ve already picked your wedding date, you may want to reconsider!  The rhyme goes as followed:

“Married when the year is new (January), he’ll be loving, kind and true. When February birds do mate, you wed nor dread your fate. 
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you’ll know. Marry in April when you can, joy for maiden and for man. Marry in the month of May, and you’ll surely rue the day. Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go. Those who in July do wed, must labor for their daily bred. Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see. Marry in September‘s shrine, your living will be rich and fine. If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry. 
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember. When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.”

-Unknown

So, what do you think? Have you already dialed your wedding planner in hopes of changing your date? Or, do you think the poem is simply nonsense? We’re hoping there’s no truth to it because we believe nothing can break the incredible bond of true love! But, just in case…we heard garters can ward off any negative superstitions that may come your way. Luckily for you, you have come to the right place! 😉

Fun Date Night Ideas

Are you in a dinner and movie date rut? Keep the excitement alive by getting creative with your dates! When your date nights seem to be a bit too routine, spice things up with a few of these fun ideas:

  • Cook together. Find a cooking class nearby and learn some new recipes with your love. Taste test each other’s food over a glass of wine. Pick your favorite meals and try them at home later for a stay-at-home date!
  • Plan your 5-year anniversary vacation. What destination was the first runner up to your Honeymoon location? Celebrate five years of unity and explore that destination. Spend a night in and plan your dream vacation by making a list of sites to see and fun things to do. How exciting!
  • Have a game night. Let loose and let your inner child out to play! Grab your favorite childhood games and movies and spend the night being silly.
  • Get Outside. Enjoy each other’s company while enjoying a picnic in a park, lounging at the beach, going for a walk, or skiing down the slopes.
  • Relive your Wedding. Spend the day sharing your love. Exchange the vows you said on your wedding day, or come up with new ones. Find a restaurant that has a similar meal that was served at your reception and reminisce about all of the happy moments that day brought. You can even go the extra yard and surprise your man with a lovely garter accessory. Who said garters were only for weddings?:)

Finding the Right Garter for Your Wedding Dress

Searching for the perfect garter for your wedding day is a fun experience. However, with an endless amount of garters to choose from, finding the right one can become difficult. That being said, we’ve come up with a few pointers that could help make your decision much easier.

1. Personality

It’s important to factor in your personality when picking out which garter to wear. Just like wedding dresses, garters can be very different. Do you tend to favor classic pieces, or are you spontaneous and energetic and tend to enjoy more vibrant items? Let your personality shine!

2. Individualization

To really make your garter your own, there are many special touches you can add. From adding a family heirloom, to your initials, a quote, or even the date of your wedding, your garter will be just as special as your special day.

3. Wedding Ties

Another great idea is to incorporate your wedding colors into your garter. Adding a pop of color to your garter will accent your dress nicely! Matching your garter to your wedding colors connects you even more to your big day.

The most important thing to remember is that you should undoubtedly LOVE your garter! Here at Garters by Kristi, we would love nothing more than to help you find or create the perfect garter for your wedding day.

Where can I buy a custom garter?

  • Remember, you’re what’s important. Take your own tastes and wants into account when getting your garter designed.  For the most part the garter is hidden under your dress so you can feel safe to express your personality.
  • Do not make the wedding garter to complicated. The garter is only two inches wide.
  • Choose your background wisely. All the accents are going to go on top of it.

If you go with a simple background the accent will infuse your personality into the garter.
