The short wait for my something blue keepsake garter was worth the wait. The craftsmanship of the garter was so beautiful and intricate. I'm so glad I purchased a keepsake garter as well as a throwaway garter. The keepsake will be going in a special box for me to revisit in the years to come.
My garter was beatuiful and comfortable. The high-quality construction is the reason I purchased with Garter Glitz and I was not disappointed. The ladies there are very accomodating and if they didn't have what I wanted, they'd make it. LOVED it, one of my favorite parts of my wedding
I ordered The Muffy from Sharon at Garter Glitz and had asked that some additional beading be placed on it to match my dress. My garter arrived on time and it was absolutely beautiful, a true heirloom piece and created with excellent craftsmanship. Sharon was in constant communication with me (I live on the other side of the US) and she is a real joy to work with. She and her staff made this very important purchase stress free.
Thank you Sharon and Garter Glitz!
What beautiful garters! I got the perfect garter to go with my dress, they were even able to customize it to match the beading on my veil. I really liked the idea of having something that is easy to pass on to future generations. Everything they had was very unique and high quality. I would highly reccomend this company.
I recommend the services of Garter Glitz to make your Wedding Day a one-of-a-kind event that will be remembered and cherished by you and all your guests for years to come. ~~ Angela www.calligraphybyangela.com 214 957 2155

I don't know who started this unfortunate trend of having brides sit down to have their garter removed for the garter toss. The only thing that can happen in that situation is to have the groom look like he is swimming upstream under your dress in front of all of your family. How embarrassing! No wonder brides are disillusioned with the garter toss.
To have your garter removed in a much more alluring and appealing way is to stay standing, take off your shoe, reach down and grab the bottom of your dress on the SIDE of the leg that has the garter on it, raise your skirt just high enough for your garter to show, and position your leg attractively out to the front and side. The groom can then kneel down and slip the garter off your leg.
There is a famous hitchhiking scene in the classic old movie "It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Claudette stops a car by raising her skirt and showing a shapely leg. If you have time to watch the whole scene, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wHfSb2xz2M it runs about 3 minutes. At about the 2 minute mark is where Claudette raises her skirt. Otherwise, follow the link below to see a picture from that movie that will give you an excellent example of how to raise your skirt temptingly.
