Are you trying to decide on the color for your wedding garter? Maybe you want to go classic and choose a cream or ivory.

How to Choose Your Perfect Wedding Garter Color

When it comes to choosing the perfect color for your wedding garter - consider your personality and what the color says about you. This color may or may not be a color in your wedding. Since the garter is worn under the wedding dress, you can have lots of fun with it and infuse your own favorite color and style into the garter color of your choice.

Red is for those that are action oriented, outgoing and impulsive. Red stands for strength, health, passion and energy.

Orange is for those that live for being around others and you’re a bit adventurous - loving the outdoors and being full of life. Orange stands for strength, artistic, curious and restless.

Yellow is for those that have strong sense of humor with a vivid imagination. You often enjoy learning and sharing that knowledge with others. Yellow stands for happiness, energy, adventure and warmth.

Green is for those that can feel the need to belong, love and be loved. You’re loyal and down to earth. Green stands for balance, hope, renewal and peace.

Blue is for those that are compassionate, caring and faithful and you often have a need for inner peace and truth. Blue stands for soft, soothing, duty and conservatism.

Purple is for those that have high ambitions and pay attention to the smallest of details. Purple stands for royalty, romance, creativity and harmony.


Pink is for those that often take care of others before worrying about themselves. Others find you warm and approachable. Pink stands for kind, maternal, gentle and delicate.

Brown is for those that prefer a simple lifestyle and you’re hardworking and frugal. Brown stands for safety, comfort, steadiness and kindness.

Black is for those that are natural born leaders yet are careful with sharing details of their life. Black stands for power, mystery, control and being collected.

Grey is for those that prefer to not be the center of attention - rather they prefer to be independent. You like to be in control of your emotions and this results in being indecisive and lacking confidence at times. Grey stands for coolness, conservative, composure, sophisticated.

White is for those that desire simplicity and order - can often be called a perfectionist. You view the world in a positive and optimistic way. White stands for purity, innocence, freshness and youth.

- going on date nights or a girls night out without a purse

Well, the GirlyGoGarter® has GentleFlex™ Grippers to keep it on your leg and it also has pockets to safely hold the necessities. The garter securely holds up to 3 lbs, even while dancing.

In addition to the original GirlyGoGarter®, there is now the beaded GlitzyGoGarter® that will add some extra shine and glamour to your special outings. You can choose from hot pink, red, black and of course the Bridal Blue Wedding Collection Garter.
