Gorgeous Garters Put the “Sexy” in Bride Accessories
This traditional wedding item dates back so far that even its origin is not absolutely clear. While some stories say that pieces of the wedding dress were shared with the guests to provide good luck for all in attendance, other tales refer to this ritual as proof of the marriage’s consummation. Regardless of the origin, it is widely practiced at most weddings today with a portion of the reception’s evening dedicated to this event. Normally performed after the bouquet toss, this ritual is often accompanied with specifically selected music, much whooping and hollering, and a fair dose of good-natured (and sometimes nervous) laughter.
There are many beautiful and sexy wedding garters available in a variety of colours and styles to suit every blushing bride. Many women wish to reveal their garter in a professionally posed wedding photo, so you’ll want to take special care when selecting the right garter set to compliment your dress and other bridal accessories.
Find outstanding pieces from the Beverly Clark collection such as Crowned Jewel, Duchess, French Lace, Gala, La Fleur, Luxe, Monroe, Royal Lace, Tie the Knot, and Venetian bridal garters.
But that’s not all. There are many other notable sets available, each with their own unique and attractive appearance. These include the Bronze Elegance, Calla Lily, Celtic Charm, Chocolate Blush, Crystal Glamour, Embroidered Applique, Fairytale Dreams, Flower of Love, Platinum Scattered Pearls and Crystals, Pocket, Seaside Allure, Snowflake, Sweet Art, and Tweet Nothings bridal garter sets to name a few.
Most of these garters are sold as a pair (or set), providing you with one to use for the garter toss event and one for yourself as a keepsake. One is normally wider and a little more ornate than the other but the choice of which to toss or to keep is up to you, there’s no set rule for this.

There are several options for wedding hair accessories that can look stunning with or without your veil. These include jewel hair twists featuring various elegant Swarovski crystals, a jewel hair comb with pearls, or a simple satin wrapped headband.
