Silk Garter - handmade silk and lace wedding garters

Creating a magical moment with a wedding garter

My superpower is creating a magical moment, between the bride and someone she loves, with the gift of a bespoke wedding garter…

I’ll listen when you tell me of the bride’s passions and dreams, turning them into a unique piece, with hand embroidery and carefully sourced elements, all stitched to the most beautiful lace and silks.

Recently I had a mother-of-the-Bride message me… Her daughter was having a destination wedding and Mum loved the dainty cotton, Nottingham lace of the ‘Butterfly Kisses’ garter.

Her daughter loved bees and worked as a midwife. The grandmother had passed away and they’d been close, something to remember her by on the day of the wedding, would be lovely. Also, the bride had her ‘New’ and ‘Borrowed’, but still needed her ‘Something Old’, a lucky sixpence bag would be perfect.

Their names were to be embroidered inside in gold, along with the wedding date.

She wondered was that too much to be included in one piece?

Designing a bespoke wedding garter

I really enjoyed making this wedding garter! So special, when it was completed, it was beautiful…

Using soft cotton Nottingham lace with a floral design in ivory, just 3cm deep, I took time, embroidering a bee by hand, at the centre. Sourcing a fine silver stork charm, carrying a baby wrapped in a blanket, this was stitched to the left side with the tiniest cream bow and pearl (representing the bride’s midwifery). To add balance, I made a sixpence bag in matching lace, just large enough to hold the silver sixpence. It was also gathered with a cream bow, like the one with the stork, but a small angel charm was added, in memory of her grandmother. This was stitched to the right side. The lace was scattered with tiny 2mm crystals, adding a little more sparkle to the wedding day! Then inside, I embroidered the happy couple’s names and their wedding date.

She cried when she saw how beautiful it was

When it was delivered, the mother-of-the-bride, took a peek inside the luxury gift box, then she messaged me… She cried when she saw how beautiful it was, how all the elements had been included and couldn’t wait to give it to her daughter, knowing she would love it too 🤍
