The Great Wedding Garter Giveaway


Details are what make your wedding special.  One small but important detail (and a great way to stamp your own personality on your day) is your choice of a wedding garter.  You can purchase a ho-hum garter anywhere, but here's you chance to WIN (YES, brides and grooms, this is a giveaway!) the garter of your choice from special event garter designer Deborah, from Etsy.com's The Pink Birdhouse store or her other Etsy store known as Garter Mademoiselle


Deborah's personal story is as romantic as her garters! Originally from Southern New Jersey in the United States Deborah now resides in Germany where as she puts it she "moved to Germany many years ago to marry the really cute blonde haired young man that at one time had been my dear penpal, and later I met in person while traveling Europe on vacation one fateful September. Some how I always knew that the country where my grandmother was born was simply my destiny!" (I do love destiny!)  Deborah continues saying "I passionately enjoy the pleasure of handstitching flowers from soft silk ribbons, an old art from the early 1900's called Victorian Ribbonwork. My new collections of bridal and all occasion garters are lavishly decorated with these roses and blossoms. I especially like to work with vintage ribbons and trims, the thought that they are old and yet in such wonderful condition makes them a pleasure to work with. I like to combine those vintage ribbons with new, bringing the past and present together." 

Deborah offers single garters or garter sets where one garter is for tossing, the other a keepsake for the bride. These garters are also perfect for other special occasions.


What can you win in this garter giveaway? The garter or garter set of your choice from either Deborah's The Pink Birdhouse store on Etsy.com or her Garter Mademoiselle store on Etsy.com.  The choice of garters for the winner only include those that are still listed in the shops at the time of the blog giveaway's ending, no custom ordering one or changing of colors. If a bride falls in love with a garter that she likes before the end of the contest, but it sells in the mean time, it is unfortunately no longer part of the winner's choices.
