Of course, we hear from our grandmothers and mothers that we need something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED, and something BLUE. I was thinking this would be pretty simple, because I have my great-grandmother’s rosary as my OLD, my dress as my NEW, and my jewelry (hopefully) will be BORROWED, but I just couldn’t think of a visible blue. I wanted it to be something visible, so that my family members could say, “Ah, there’s her blue.” I had thought about dyeing my crinoline, a la Avocado’s post, but I was afraid of messing up an expensive crinoline! So, I thought about my garter instead. I originally wanted an LSU garter, since that’s my and Mr. BF’s alma mater. I went online, and nothing was grabbing my attention. I’m really not much of a lace fan, so I knew I’d have trouble with lacy garters.
Out of boredom, I logged onto Etsy and found Garter Lady. She has CUTE garters at really reasonable prices! Check out some of what she has!
I immediately thought of Mrs. Sea Breeze with her purple wedding day accessories when I saw this one!
This set grabbed my eye for a second, as I could request my college in garter form, but I thought about how I needed my ‘something blue’ and passed on this type of set.
For the brides who happen to LOVE lace, she makes garters with it as well!
And finally, here is what I decided on as my ‘something BLUE’!!
Another great thing? She makes plus-sized garters for no extra charge. (I think that’s a first for me!) I really didn’t think about how my thunder thighs would need a different sized garter, but it makes perfect sense!
Have you found your something blue yet? What did you choose?
