Wedding Planning Update #3 (My Garter + Shoes!)

I am so excited to share with you some updates on our special day! I have been working with WeddingWire throughout my wedding planning process, and they have been such an amazing aid. I truly didn’t know what I was getting myself into and WeddingWire has made the process much more simple. Our date is October 18th, which is QUICKLY approaching and we still feel as if we have incredible amounts of tasks to complete. Today, I wanted to share with you two things that have been checked off my list: wedding day heels and my garter!

I know what you’re thinking; and yes, that is the most beautiful garter ever made.

One day, I was watching a YouTube video by the insanely beautiful Mallory Ervin, (who is my new YouTube obsession, seriously go check her out) and she was talking about all the details of her special day. I’ll link the specific video HERE. She held up her garters by the company Agata Maria Couture. It was love at first sight for me, and I instantly visited their website.

Garters were something that I hadn’t even thought about yet, but they are such an important detail, and I didn’t want the average poor quality garter that looked like everyone else’s. The one in the pictures just spoke to me and I knew it would match my dress perfectly. I chose the Jasmine garter in honey. I then emailed Agata Maria and asked if they would be interested in an official collaboration, and they graciously accepted. I actually received the garter yesterday and I had to share it with you all as soon as possible. I loved it that much!

As for heels, I wanted something classic and comfortable while still being beautiful. I truly love these from J. Crew. What I love about these heels is that I can wear them to other events other than my wedding since they’re so classic! They were also on sale and were much cheaper than some of the others I was looking at. 😉

I was hoping that by now, I could officially share some tips and details on the groomsmen’s suits, but the details aren’t 100% worked out yet. Ironically, I was looking for a certain grey tweed suit and couldn’t find it anywhere. As I was searching the web, I ran across this forum on WeddingWire and someone recommended a website that has the exact suit that I need. Also, it is very affordable! I will check back in with you all regarding that topic in the near future.

That’s all that I have to share today, but I will be back very soon! If you are engaged, or plan to be, I highly recommend utilizing the tools on WeddingWire. I have to start my seating chart for my reception very soon, and I will be using the feature on their website, which makes it SO easy.

And of course, if you are looking for a garter, Agata Maria‘s are simply the best of the best. They even have a stunning light blue one with pearls!

I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who took time out of your day to read this post. Have a wonderful rest of your day and may God bless you abundantly!

    That garter is incredible! Wedding wire can also help with group hotel rates for your hotel guests. I have used that feature and found super rates for our guests!
