Wearing a wedding garter is a time-honored idea, considered to be the oldest surviving wedding tradition (who knew, right?!). And for brides who are considering a garter for their big day, we’re excited to introduce The Wedding Garter Co., designers of luxury heirlooms intended to be passed on from generation to generation. Each item is made by hand, from the finest materials, in their workshop near the ancient Roman city of Bath, England. The lace used to carefully craft each garter is from a company (owned by the 8th generation of the same family) who have been making lace in the same building since 1845. And each garter comes wrapped in a beautiful box, designed to last for decades, accompanied by a handmade lace dust bag. Fusing understated British luxury with Parisienne romance, The Wedding Garter Co.‘s objective is to not only craft accessories that brides will love, but to make the entire experience special.
We’ve definitely fallen for these beauties, big time. Here are a couple of our personal faves…
Sarah Jane, Creative Director of The Wedding Garter Co. says, Though ours is a thoroughly English company, my husband and I feel very much at home in the USA – we visit a lot! Maybe that is because we share a language but I think it’s also all the traditions we have in common. Wearing a wedding garter is one of those traditions.
To celebrate our shared history, The Wedding Garter Co. is offering a 15% discount on their lace garter collection to their American customers this weekend only! Shipping is insured and totally free to the USA – it takes just a few days!
