Take It or Toss It

A garter is often worn by newlywed brides, and it is the grooms privilege to remove the garter and toss it to the male guests at the reception. 
Tossing the wedding garter is an old time tradition, it is meant to bring good luck to the man who catches it...he is said to be the next one to marry. 
There are so many cute ideas that I found when it comes to deciding and decorating your own personalized garter.  Here are some of my faves from!!!
Vintage Lace

It could be your something blue

It could be an heirloom that has been passed down from generation to generation

Girly Chic

Glamorous and Dainty

Sacred and Seductive

Picking out a veil to wear on your wedding day can be a bit tricky. The veil in most cultures symbolizes religious and social importance/status; you also have to consider the time of year, the location, the length of the aisle,  and possible weather issues.  It is also important to think about your hairstyle, your face shape, and the style of your dress.

Here are a few examples on how to pick out your veil from

The Visor Veil- perfect for high neck dresses

The Shoulder Length Veil- sweet, elegant, and unique

Elbow Lenth Veil-perfect for ball gown style dresses

Waist Length Veil-the most popular because this veil will suit just about any gown

Floor Length Veil- goes great with full length gowns without a train

Cathedral Length Veil- These are the longest and the most formal out of all the veils
