That moment when a groom shimmies the garter off his beloved’s thigh in front of generations of oglers is undoubtedly an awkward one. But if you’re going to keep with the tradition, grab a custom number from Roarke New York. Known for its intricate beaded bib necklaces, the line is branching out into the bridal world.
Creations are made to order and take about three weeks’ time to complete. Start by choosing a color, ranging from the obvious blue (baby, cobalt, or navy) to less traditional hues (nude, gray, fuchsia, yellow, and green). Then select black or white lace, both finished with light beading.
Roarke’s elegant version is an accessory you’ll be delighted to wear, even if you buck tradition and nobody but your freshly minted husband ever sees it.
