My incredible grandma crocheted me this stunning, intricate garter for my wedding day, and it definitely has a place of honor on our wedding gallery wall now that our wedding has come and gone! My grandma wasn’t able to travel from Ohio and join us for our wedding, but she was most certainly with us in spirit in so many ways, especially as I wore this beautiful masterpiece she lovingly made for me. As soon as we got engaged, Grandma started on this garter right away, since it took countless hours (and a lot of eye strain!) to handcraft. I know so much love and prayers were poured into every miniscule stitch, and it is something that I will treasure forever. She even tied it with a Carolina blue ribbon, both for my alma mater and for my “something blue.” It was the perfect bridal accessory on our wedding day, for sure.
So many meaningful, deeply special touches make up a wedding day, and this is one that I treausre so close to my heart. We tried to think of highly meaningful, personal details to weave our loved ones into our wedding day, especially of those who couldn’t be there with us in person.
Thank you for sharing your gift with me, Grandma!! This is the most beautiful garter imaginable, and I’m so grateful you made it for me!
