Since vintage weddings continue to be a hot trend, it only makes sense that there are a seemingly limitless number of vintage wedding garter styles to choose from.2

I particularly love ones that feature delicate details like the lace, pearls and roses seen here.

Including a special touch of “something blue” is also one of the most popular and beloved wedding garter ideas.

When your groom is in the military, why not honor that service with a themed garter featuring the emblem specific to his branch?2

Navy, and you can also find garters showcasing the emblems of the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard.

Show some team spirit by choosing a garter that features the colors and logo of your guy’s favorite team.

I just love this red-and-white fire engine garter and have also seen similarly unique designs perfect for brides marrying police officers, musicians, NASCAR lovers and more.
