Please PIP your "offbeat" garter....

I'm really wanting an "offbeat" garter.  I am in talks with an etsy seller for a custom comic inspired garter.  What are you all using? She is bouncing ideas off of me and I'm just not sure!

    Etsy seller NeverAPlainJane has a lot of offbeat garters.  I bought my sister's from her, and will most likely use her for mine as well.  She has some listed that are made from ties, so as soon as FI picks his tie, I'll just get an extra one and send it to her.  Some of her garters are downright strange, but I've been stalking her shop for about a year now and her inventory is contstantly changing - but she's open to customs as well.

    Garters are one of those things that are SO easy to make them reflect you and your FI :)

    I don't get garters. Why would anyone want lace rubbing against their thigh all day. Good luck with the chafing.  And I especially don't get the garter toss. And if you're not having a garter toss then wearing a garter is pointless.

    This is not necessarily the case. For a lot of ladies that aren't comfortable with the garter toss, the garter is a fun surprise for their DH on their wedding night. I know if we weren't doing the toss (which he and his friends seem to enjoy so he's set on doing it) then I would still be surprising him with the Toronto Maple Leafs garter that he would never guess I'd buy.

    We're not tossing it or anything... I just wanted one to suprise my fi with when the dress comes off :)

    Everyone is different but for me, getting the dress off was not the sexy part.

    I ended up with two garters, I made one to match my handfasting cords, and then a second one for my evening outfit, lots of satins and gems, very burlesque to match a lovely cream and gold corset edged with a feather boa :-)  Didnt have a garter toss as no guests!  Just five at the ceremonmy, including me and the OH :-)  Wasnt so worried about the chafing, more the fact it might end up around my ankle at some point - boob tape to the rescue :-)
