Lace, bows and charms: The best 5 garters for brides

Nowadays, your wedding day may be one of the few days you’ll wear a garter during your lifetime. So if you’re only going to do something once, then I reckon it needs to look great!

Many brides shy away from tradition with the garter nowadays, as back in the day, the groom would remove the garter and throw to his groomsmen for good luck.

At Zankyou, we’re pretty ok for you to leave that one aside, but if you are going to wear a garter, the only thing we do ask you is that it is pretty!

Here are a selection of five beautiful pieces that we think would look lovely on your wedding day. They’re all from British suppliers, so get online and get checking out these pretty accessories.

I have been at more than one wedding where they do the whole remove the garter and throw it to the groomsmen thing and it’s SOOOO WEIRD. I mean seriously, your parents are in the room, and you’re hitching your dress up and being fondled by the groom? I totally don’t get it!
