Tell us a little about The Wedding Garter Co. We are a small firm based out of our bridal boutique near Bath. I work with my husband and a small team of highly skilled staff creating garters that go out to every corner of the world.
What is it about your garters that make them so special? Every single part of our bridal garters is handmade by us, we don’t buy pre made bases and ‘embellish’ them. Each garter starts as a huge roll of raw silk or lace. It gives us control over quality and design and, frankly, we think you should expect nothing less of a luxury item that may be in your family for decades or even generations.
What do you think of wedding traditions like the garter toss? If you want to great, if not that’s fine! We send a lot of bridal garters to the USA where it’s more common but in the UK it’s about 50/50 split between brides who do and don’t ‘toss’ their garter. I should say that for brides who do want to go for it we sell a simple toss garter for throwing so you don’t need to lose your heirloom piece! Wearing a garter is about a little hidden sexy on a day when you are very much the centre of attention – why not feel a little more fabulous?
How will you be celebrating one year in business? I’d love to say with a holiday but it doesn’t seem on the cards! We opened our boutique in July and already need more space so there is a lot to do!
What challenges have you set yourself for the next 12 months? The new boutique space will be a concept store where you can see garters being made, browse our collection and take advantage of our professional photo studio. We are always adding designs to the collection too of course. I love designing more than anything and can’t ever seem to stop!
