Melbourne Bride Expo

Garters and Co. were at Booth 4 at the Melbourne Bride Expo Melbourne Bride Expo 2018 last weekend!  We really had a fantastic time . We loved meeting so many Brides-to-Be and their Bridesmaids-to-be. It was really exciting for EVERYONE!! We loved every minute of our time and saw so many special booths.

Wedding Options all in one place

There was such a happy feeling from everyone as they walked around.  There were so many different and amazing people working there over the weekend.  Mostly, everyone was there to see lots of Wedding options in the one place. It was also helpful to be able to speak directly with Wedding Suppliers one on one.  It enabled Brides to get some wonderful ideas for their Wedding Day and make great contacts.  Best of all, everything was in the one place.

Brides to Be

I found it was wonderful too, asking Brides-to-Be if they would be wearing a Wedding Garter.  Ninety-nine per cent overwhelmingly said ‘YES’.  The Tradition of wearing a Wedding Garter Bridal Garters – old Wedding Tradition is still alive and well!  The Brides-to-Be loved being able to see and feel the garters and talk about different fabrics, colours and embellishments that would suit them. Brides also told me that having something ‘blue’ on the Garter was a really great idea.  They didn’t have to worry about incorporating this colour anywhere else on their Wedding Day Something Blue Garter

Garters & Co. are very flexible and can place a blue bow inside your Garter, so only you know it is there.  We can also place it on the back of the Garter or sew the prettiest, sparkling Blue Swarovski Crystal onto your Garter.  We customise these options for the Bride.  Whether it is the colour or a tweak in the style or even a completely different design.

Melbourne Bride Expo

The Brides-to-Be loved the idea of having matching garters made up for their Bridesmaids to match their dresses.  It is not only a great photo opportunity, the garters make the perfect gift for your Bridesmaids too.

The Catwalk

The Catwalk shows were brilliant and drew everyone away from us for 40 mins as they watched the beautiful gowns being modelled and could see all the stunning gowns.  The Groom was not forgotten, as lots of really cute male models strutted their stuff, showing some great ideas for their outfits too.  Loved the music that pumped through the Expo too!
