I've been doing a lot of browsing on wedding websites trying to get ideas for my wedding next fall. When I happened to come across this garter set, I just had to buy it, and I did right away. What stuck me at first was the look of it...icy blue with a rhinestone heard pinned in the center over blue and white ribbon. I also really liked the idea of a "set". One garter to throw and the other to keep. I had never heard of that before, but was excited that I would be able to have a keepsake out of it.
Shipping was very fast, I got my package in about four days. The garters came boxed nicely, They are really good quality, except for the fact that the Cathy's Concepts tag seemed to be glued on poorly and kept falling off. I just pulled it all the way off and threw it away though. No big deal. I'm really happy that they look as nice in person as they did online, and they feel pretty good on too.
The only thing I wish this company would have done, is inlcude and explanation about how the "throwing garter" is supposed to work. There is one bigger garter with ribbon and one smaller one without ribbon (it almost looks like one of those baby headbands) and I'm not even sure which one is supposed to be the one that gets thrown. But, I think I want to keep the big one. I also wish something would have said which one is supposed to be worn on top...It looks nicer with the little one on top, but if that's the one that's supposed to get thrown, it might make it kind of hard to take off...onless you're supposed to take off the big one earlier and just keep it somewhere...I don't know, but some sort of instructions would have been nice.
