Perhaps nothing is more important on a couple’s wedding day than the beauty of the bride. She’ll be wearing the gown of her lifetime, lovely jewelry and glowing from head to toe. Beyond the earrings and wedding band, there’s one bridal accessory that doesn’t always get the love it deserves. A garter is an age-old tradition that’s an intimate experience between man and wife (minus the embarrassing removal and toss at the reception). Lots of destination brides wear more than one garter, one to be removed at the reception and one to be removed by her husband on their wedding night.
Bleu Garters encourages women to take great care in selecting their wedding garter. Much like everything else on your wedding day, it should reflect your personality and style. Spending a little more money on your garter will ensure that it becomes a beloved keepsake and something than can be handed down from generation to generation. Bleu Garters recently introduced a new collection, XOXO.
The collection was inspired by vintage pinup photographs and is for the playful bride. While still made of luxurious silks and vintage lace, these garters are fashioned in fun colors like scarlet red, fuchsia and aqua. Many of them also feature sassy details like cherry buttons, hearts and bows. In case you didn’t know, there are two traditional types of garters: classic and tie.
The classic garter encircles the leg entirely usually with elasticized silk ribbon or fabric. The tie garter holds back delicate lace with double-faced satin ribbon tying a bow in the back. No matter which type of garter you choose, you’ll have your pick of flirty colors and fun details. If the XOXO collection isn’t quite your style, Bleu Garters also has other more traditional collections made of the same quality materials. Their bridal collection is divine and features Swarovski crystals and silk satins.Visit Bleu Garter’s web site for more information and to find the garter that’s just right for you.
