Garter question

My dress is an ivory/natural colour and i bought a garter that is white, should the garter colour match the dress? i know some brides use other colours (blue, pink etc.) which i think is really cute, but because ivory and white are so close yet not, will it make my dress look bad??

no, I don't think so. I'm going to wear a white dress and my garter is going to be lt.blue. No one is going to say anything b/c they're not going to be looking at your garter all night, they'll be looking at you in the dress. Also, if your reception is in the evening, it'll be darker no one should really notice anyways. :)

:) My FI is a seattle seahawks fanatic. I bought a seahawks garter off e-bay. He's going to be thrilled! I don't think the color of the garter will make a difference. A lot of people get a blue garter to cover the 'something blue' part.

Yeah, it really doesn't matter. Nothing has to be really matchy, matchy.

I think you should be fine. :)

I don't think it matters, my garter is going to be my "something blue" and my colors are black and white (w/red flowers).

I don't think it has to match but if it bothers you and you'd want to tie it together a bit you could always add some ivory ribbon around it or add a small bow. But I doubt anyone would even notice the only people close enough to see will be your FI and whom ever catches it.
