The history of the wedding garter which dates back for centuries is fairly common knowledge for most brides these days and having endured the test of time, remains a very popular bridal accessory and focus for a familiar reception ritual. Even if a bride chooses not to have a garter removed in front of an audience of enthusiastic well-wishers, most love this alluring piece of antiquity worn discretely under a gown for their groom to discover after the festivities have died down.
In as much the pomp and circumstance of weddings, the spectacle of a gorgeous gown and sparkling jewelry are the fairy tale dreams of so many young gals, it is no surprise to see that some bridal traditions have found their way to other special occasions that are very much romanticized as rites-of-passage by young women today.
That is why we continue to see the trend of prom grandeur simply exploding! This time of year, even before a gal knows who will escort her to this fabulous affair, the venue, gown and accessories are very much a focus of relentless searching and endless discussion!
Along with a stunning gown and gorgeous hair and makeup, the seemingly insignificant garter has become another “must-have” for the fully appointed prom goer and as with its bridal cousin, has become a keepsake as a reminder of happy memories and a magical night. She may choose to give it to her date or, akin to the wedding reception tradition, participate in a “garter dance” as part of the prom festivities.
Whether she chooses a wild animal pattern, shimmering opulence or perhaps a silk garter in her school colors, gals heading to the prom these days are sure to wear a little something special accenting their perfect look! Following this fabulous trend, our prom garter collection just gets more colorful and exciting with each season and we’d like to share a taste of some of our most popular looks!
