Competition winner

Hello my loves, I have an absolutely fabulous prize competition for you to win today and it’s an easy peasy one to enter too!

So first of all, what exactly is on offer? Your chance to win a super pretty and romantic luxury wedding garter. Yay! Bridal accessory brand Britten recently launched a sister company specialising solely in very gorgeous and indulgently luxurious wedding garters, aptly named The Wedding Garter Company.

Would you like to know a bit more about garters and why it’s a bridal tradition to wear one?

I found this info via Wikipedia…

There is a Western wedding tradition for a bride to wear a garter to her wedding, to be removed towards the end of the reception by the groom. This ceremony is often interpreted as symbolic of deflowering, though some sources attribute its origin to a superstition that taking an article of the bride’s clothing will bring good luck. In the Middle Ages, the groom’s men would rush at the new bride to take her garters as a prize.

Today, the privilege of removing the bride’s garter is traditionally reserved to the groom, who will then toss the garter to the unmarried male guests.

Ooo-eer interesting! Anyway enough explaining. Let’s do a little swooning and then I can tell you how you can win one of these beauties.

The Wedding Garter Co hand crafts luxury wedding garters. Vintage lace and silk bridal garters in blue, ivory and grey. The perfect gift for a bride or your ‘something blue’.

  1. I love these! I borrowed mine from my sister in law who got married seven months before me.

  2. My favourite garter is the Joi in the grey- the grey colour matches my bridesmaids! Although they are all beautiful!

  3. Iva wedding garter in blue is stunning – although so hard to pick! =]
    So glad to find the site even if I don’t win so thanks!!!

  4. I absolutely love the Edmeé garter in blue! Such a pretty thing to have as your something blue! They are all gorgeous though… xxx

  5. My favourite is the Joi garter in blue. Blue is my favourite colour, would match my bridesmaids and could be my “something blue”. Never seen such pretty and glam garters before :-)

  6. I love the Beau garter – really classic and simple and a little bit vintage with that velvet bow – would really suit my dress :-) x

  7. They are all lovely! My fave would have to be the Talle in blue. So delicate, and I love the little pearl and crystal detail!

  8. Thank you for this amazing competition and reminding me about getting a garter, here’s me thinking I had remembered everything for my outfit!
    They are all so beautiful, but as my dress has lots of little lace and embellished flowers I think the JOI garter in blue would go perfectly!
    I am making my own veil, invitations, blue waist sash and have used left over lace flowers from my dress to embellish my blue wedding shoes also, a craft bride I know! I think the JOI garter would tie all my little blue bits and flowers in and really finish off the outfit, plus it would be nice to have some part of my outfit that I have had to teach myself to make ;-). Xx

    1. Hi Paola, thanks so much for your entry. VERY lucky number 13 ;) I love the sound of your wedding, thanks so much for sharing the detail with me. Sonia XxX
