New in the Shop | Wedding Garter Set in Ivory Satin & Lace with Swarovski Crystals

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with joy and blessings! I know that I did!

Business always slows down for me in November and December as most brides are preparing for the holiday season and end up putting their wedding preparations on the back burner. I use this time to refuel after wedding season as well as work on new designs. I'm so excited to share one of these designs today ~ here it is!

New in the Shop | Wedding Garter Set in Hot Pink & Realtree Camouflage Grosgrain with Swarovski Crystals

Hi everyone. I wanted to check in and apologize for missing yesterday's Wedding Wednesday Inspiration Board ~ we had an emergency with one of our puppy dogs (he's on the mend now) which has taken up a lot of my time this week, and I simply didn't have the energy to curate a board yesterday. In the meantime, I'd like to share one of my newest designs ~ a hot pink and Realtree camo garter set!

Etsy Wedding Inspiration Board | Autumn Weddings

I am constantly amazed by the wide array of beautiful wedding items available for purchase on Etsy. There are so many talented artisans out there, and as someone who got her start on Etsy, I marvel at the incredible marketplace it has become. Seriously, you can find almost anything there! And who doesn't like to support handmade?!? Many of us who sell handmade rely on cross-promotion to get our products out in front of potential customers, and we love to promote the work of others in our industry. I've decided to start doing just that with a new Etsy wedding inspiration board each week.

With Halloween tomorrow and Thanksgiving right around the corner, fall is definitely in the air! Autumn weddings seemed like the perfect theme for the week! Each item pictured below is available for purchase on Etsy; for more information or to order, click on the links below!

Real Weddings | Leah's Thin Blue Line Wedding Garter

I hope you all are ready for another Real Weddings post. My Thin Blue Line wedding garter has become one of my bestsellers this year, and I was so excited to finally get pictures from one of my brides who purchased this garter to feature today!

This garter was PERFECT for Leah as both she and her new hubby, Jeff (and her dad!) are police officers. Leah and Jeff were married in August of this year at Lake Tahoe. Photography by Angel Phillips of Angel Eyez Photography.

New in the Shop | Wedding Garter Set in Pale Blue & Realtree Camouflage Grosgrain with Swarovski Crystals

It's been WAY too long since I've had the opportunity to post here on the blog, but I guess that's to be expected during wedding season! I have had the chance to work on a few new designs though, and hope to share them here in the next week or so. First up is this fun "Something Blue" wedding garter set perfect for the bride marrying a hunting enthusiast! The pale blue ribbon fills the "something blue" of the "something old, something new" wedding tradition and the Realtree camouflage is sure to bring a smile to the face of a groom who loves to hunt!

Real Weddings | Marah's University of Miami Hurricanes Wedding Garter

Wedding season is in full swing and the garter orders have been rolling in, leaving me little time for blogging. I did find a little bit of time this morning though ~ here's another Real Weddings post!

New in the Shop | Custom House Divided Garter Set

My custom house divided wedding garters are some of my favorites to sew, mainly because no two are ever alike, but also because I'm always left wondering how couples manage to cope with some major in-house sport rivalries! 

My original house divided garter set is pictured below. Featuring charms on both the keepsake and toss garters, the garter set allows the bride and groom as well as the lucky bachelor who catches the garter to keep a nice memento from the big day.

I recently decided to design a simpler version of my house divided garter set, perfect for the bride who is looking for a more budget-friendly garter set and doesn't need charms on her toss garter. It's available for purchase on my website here.

Which house divided set would you select for your wedding day? What teams would be featured on it?

Custom Garters | Kaitlyn's Detroit Red Wings & Mossy Oak Camo Flask Wedding Garter Set

I love working with brides to create the perfect wedding garter or garter set for their special day. Sometimes their requests present a bit of a challenge, while other requests are pretty straight-forward, but the end result is always fun to see. 

Here is my latest custom design ~ a Detroit Red Wings flask garter embellished with Mossy Oak camouflage grosgrain. The bride, Kaitlyn, is planning a country-themed wedding with Mossy Oak accents, and I think we came up with the perfect way to incorporate her favorite team with her wedding theme!

Real Weddings | Cammie's Hot Pink & Black Satin Wedding Garter Set

I hope you all are ready for another installment in my Real Weddings series! 

Bride Cammie shared so many amazing pictures with me from her September 2011 wedding and I can't wait to share them with you! Cammie wed her groom, Matthew at Cedar Grove Baptist Church in Carthage, Texas; their reception was at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Photography by Holly Bonner

In Cammie's own words: 

I purchased my garter because I wanted something elegant that matched our wedding colors. I couldn't have been happier! I have the "keepsake" garter on a picture frame that sits on my husband's desk at home.

Real Weddings | Alicia's San Diego Chargers/Seattle Seahawks House Divided Wedding Garter

It's been awhile, and we are way overdue for another installment in my Real Weddings series!

Today features Alicia's San Diego Chargers/Seattle Seahawks house divided wedding garter. A Seattle native, Alicia wed husband Adam last December at the Karl Strauss Brewery & Garden in Sorrento Valley, San Diego. Photos by Stephina Photography.

Alicia's own words on selecting her garter: 

I was so excited to find Sugarplum Garters because Adam and I met tailgating at a San Diego Charger game in 2010 and we are both big sports nuts! I however was born in Seattle and my heart has remained with the city and its teams even though I have lived most of my life in California. Initially I was just going to order a Chargers garter but then I saw Heather will do a "house divided" garter and I was SOLD!!! 1/2 Chargers 1/2 Seahawks, and this is how it goes in our house!
