To garter or not to garter?
There will be no bouquet toss at our wedding and no Mr. P hunting around in my dress for a garter! Sorry to disappoint anyone, it's just a tradition I can happily do without. So do I really need to wear a garter? The answer is no!
However, I stumbled on Julianne Smith's website via the Southern Wedding Magazine blog and now I think I may want a garter after all! You see Julianne has many garters on her site, traditional style, animal print, something blue garters, tossing garters, you name it, she has it! But what really peaked my interest was the fact she does custom garters. Meaning I can send in extra fabric from my dress and she'll use it to create a one of a kind piece for me. Complete with my new initials! :) I'm pretty confident that our future daughter will never want to wear my dress, but maybe she'd want to wear this, you know, as her 'something old'. Just a thought.
I like thinking ahead! It's such a pretty picture!
Hey, by the way, in 193 days I'll be marrying the most handsome, funny, caring, thoughtful, smart, clever man I've ever met! Tears creep in my eyes just thinking about it! I love you P!
I'm a southern girl who grew up in a little bitty town. I met the love of my life in 2001 after getting the guts to leave that lil' bitty town and attend college at Virginia Tech University.
We've been together for over 7 years and I couldn't be happier about marrying him in 2009.
