Competition winner

Hello my loves, I have an absolutely fabulous prize competition for you to win today and it’s an easy peasy one to enter too!

So first of all, what exactly is on offer? Your chance to win a super pretty and romantic luxury wedding garter. Yay! Bridal accessory brand Britten recently launched a sister company specialising solely in very gorgeous and indulgently luxurious wedding garters, aptly named The Wedding Garter Company.

Would you like to know a bit more about garters and why it’s a bridal tradition to wear one?

I found this info via Wikipedia…

There is a Western wedding tradition for a bride to wear a garter to her wedding, to be removed towards the end of the reception by the groom. This ceremony is often interpreted as symbolic of deflowering, though some sources attribute its origin to a superstition that taking an article of the bride’s clothing will bring good luck. In the Middle Ages, the groom’s men would rush at the new bride to take her garters as a prize.

Today, the privilege of removing the bride’s garter is traditionally reserved to the groom, who will then toss the garter to the unmarried male guests.

Ooo-eer interesting! Anyway enough explaining. Let’s do a little swooning and then I can tell you how you can win one of these beauties.

The Wedding Garter Co hand crafts luxury wedding garters. Vintage lace and silk bridal garters in blue, ivory and grey. The perfect gift for a bride or your ‘something blue’.

    Thank you for this amazing competition and reminding me about getting a garter, here’s me thinking I had remembered everything for my outfit!
    They are all so beautiful, but as my dress has lots of little lace and embellished flowers I think the JOI garter in blue would go perfectly!
    I am making my own veil, invitations, blue waist sash and have used left over lace flowers from my dress to embellish my blue wedding shoes also, a craft bride I know! I think the JOI garter would tie all my little blue bits and flowers in and really finish off the outfit, plus it would be nice to have some part of my outfit that I have had to teach myself to make ;-).

    The Iva Garter in Blue is definitely my choice – my husband to be’s shoes are light blue suede (the first thing we bought for the wedding) and everything has just stemmed from there.

    It is also on my ’22 things to do before getting married at 22′ to win a wedding competition! ;)

    Thank you, Sonia. xx
