Garters & Charms

Wearing a garter under a wedding dress is a tradition that dates back to Medieval England and is one that many brides still, to this day, follow. There are many theories about what a garter signifies and why it was worn, but in modern times it is worn on a brides thigh (any leg) and removed by the groom towards the end of the wedding reception and thrown to the single men who have gathered. Whoever catches the garter is thought to have good luck bought upon them and it is believed that he will marry soon after.

Hear From Our Happy Brides
I was very nervous at first as I only had a couple weeks till I leave for NZ and was afraid my dress would not be ready in time. Kathy gave me a date of 30th November (only 2 weeks) and it was finished!!! I had also purchased my dress from a different bridal store so I am extremely grateful they are able to purchase dresses purchased elsewhere.

Kathy and Maria were so lovely and I highly recommend coming here to try/purchase/alter a wedding dress. I wish I knew about this store when I started looking for a wedding dress!
