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?

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

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!

Photo of the Day | Harry Winston Engagement Ring and Wedding Band

Isn't this Harry Winston cushion-cut micropave diamond engagement ring and wedding band exquisite?!? I fell in love with it the moment I saw it, and haven't been able to stop drooling over it since! I can't imagine many girls would say no to a proposal that included this engagement ring!!!
