So, wedding garters. They can be a teensy bit tacky right? But, being a huge sucker for tradition, I knew I just had to have one.
I did a little bit of online browsing for one, but everything was the same ol’, same ol’. Then I found these beauties:

I really fell in love with these (click on the images to take you to the beautiful Liberty in Love website – you will love!) but with a price tag of over £50, I just couldn’t justify it. I therefore decided to attempt my own.
I got some elasticated lace, a piece of felt and a vintage brooch with blue stones (something blue) and this is what I came up with. I haven’t joined the ends together yet as in my mind my legs will be sooooo much thinner by Sept (in reality, I’ll be exactly the same size and kicking myself that I didn’t get my arse into gear), anyhoo here it is……
Obviously nowhere near as nice as the Liberty in Love one’s but better (and just a £ more expensive) than the 99p ones I found on Ebay.
