Bridal’s Ready-to-Wear and DIY Garter

May 26, 2010

Ivory M&J Bridal Garter

Usually Bridal garters are the last on the list to think about.  Although at M&J Bridal we often get some last-minute Brides searching for veils a week before the wedding.

However, today is all about the garter.  It may be one of the smallest piece that you will be wearing that day, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the least important.  Every aspect of your wedding day is important. 

With a few selection at our 5,000 sq ft trimming showroom, you can either create your own DIY garter or we can work with you to create one that is unique to your style.  Some garters that are available to Brides today are usually the same as the ones Brides would get over ten years ago.   However, trends has changed and that means the garter itself also needs a change.  M&J Bridal can make that possible for you.  For sample, what we have here today are three samples of a vintage style garter.  Listed below are the materials you can use to DIY or like we said earlier, drop by our showroom at 1008 Sixth Ave, NYC, 10018 and we’ll work with you.  We’ll be here until 8pm on weekdays and 6pm on weekends.  Please drop by at your convenience.  We’re looking forward to meeting you.

      I really like the first one shown. I love that you offer to let the client DIY or help them to make the garter to suit their style and needs. What a great way to add a personal touch to the garter.

      I like browsing your blog because you can constantly bring us new and cool stuff, I think that I must at least say thanks for your hard work.

      Hi – I know it’s been a while since anyone has posted about this but I’m having a hard time knowing how much elastic to measure. I’ve made a couple and they fit but seem kind of big. Is there a ‘sewer’s rule’ for measuring elastic?

        Hi Snw,

        when making a garter measure the elastic 1/2″ to 1″ bigger than the leg. I hope this helps
