Anchor Wedding Garter Belt – Where to Customize Yours
One day, in my nautical-wedding-craze, I was searching “#anchor” on Instagram and found Mama’s Little Baby. The shop had just made a cute anchor headband / hairbow for little girls! Although I don’t own any kids (I don’t even sound like I should have one), I still enjoy seeing her new items, photography, and watching her online shop grow. Christa, the woman behind Mama’s Little Baby Etsy shop makes more than just nautical headbands. Check out her shop to see!
The photos below were taken by our photographer at Once Upon a Time Photography, except the last one which was from my cousin.
I wanted a personal, handmade, DIY type of wedding even if I couldn’t make everything myself. One day it dawned on me that Mama’s Little Baby headbands are very similar to a wedding garter belt. So, I asked Christa to make mine and she did a fabulous job!
All I did was give her an idea of what I was looking for in a wedding garter and she sent me photo samples to choose from that were perfect. It was fun and easy to design my own and have an expert create it!
Tyler, my groom, seemed very serious about throwing it. Surprisingly, a few guys actually look excited to catch it.
Probably all the older guys took a step back, but my cousin who caught it is an extremely determined boy.
My younger cousin caught my wedding garter and he was quite proud!
This photo reinforces my idea that a garter is essentially a headband. I think he was slightly disgusted when I told him where it had been all day though. haha. Another funny thing was his sister caught the bouquet and a month later she was engaged!
About Mama’s Little Baby
Christa, a mom who loves crafting, made a few hair accessories for her daughter every once in a while. The shop name, Mama’s Little Baby was chosen because Christa’s husband always called her daughter “Little Baby” and so Christa started referring to her as Little Baby too! Her daughter is now four and Christa thinks her husband will still be calling her ‘Little Baby’ even when she’s all grown up. 🙂 Christa says, “I have always sang ‘Mama’s Little Baby loves Shortnin’ Bread’ to her…although I have been known to change the words a little. 😉 So that is where Mama’s Little Baby came from!”
