Julianne Smith just launched her eco-friendly garter collection a few weeks ago. The ribbon is woven using yarn made from 100% post consumer polyester, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. She sent me these 4 styles and they are incredibly soft, I could never tell the material is made from recycled plastic bottles.

  • Stephanie

    It’s hard to choose, but I have always been partial to green, and that shade of it reminds me of an old-fashioned country bride’s dowry. :)

  • Audrey

    I love the lemon-colored garter, which matches my color palatte perfectly! Thanks for the offer.

  • Beautiful! My best friend just got engaged a couple weeks ago and I’m her maid of honour *squeals with excitement*; one of those garters would be the PERFECT Christmas present for her. I especially love the light blue one with the white ribbon. Too cool that they’re eco friendly to boot!

  • Natalee

    I love the grey and white garter! And it’s tough creating a diy & green wedding without killing the budget! So, every little bit helps tremendously. And, naturally, the colors match the pretty 50’s themed wedding I hope to have :) It would be a great Christmas gift, because we’re forgoing Christmas gifts to work on this wedding–but better yet, a birthday gift! My birthday is on the 12th. Thanks so much for the offer! But even better, what awesome garters! Good Luck, everyone!

  • I love the dark blue one!

  • I think the yellow one would be perfect for my eco-conscious friend getting married next fall!

  • Julie

    I love the grey and white one and I love the blue one too! But if i had to narrow it down to one i would choose the blue one. Love the idea of a eco-friendly garter! Thanks

  • Tara

    This is a tough one. I love the grey and white garter, but I also love the one that has a touch of blue.

  • Julia R

    While I love the blue and would have picked it last week, I’d go with the pewter/grey garter for our wedding. My fiance has decided he wants to wear his charcoal pinstripe suit which clashes desperately with the blues we had intended to use (including the dresses we were supposed to order on Friday – AH!!!) so now grey is making a strong comeback into our color palette. Oh, the things we do for love. = )

  • Allison T

    I love the green one!

  • i LOVE the green garter!!! it’s my favorite shade of green….

  • Nichole

    I LOVE the bright royal blue and ivory one. It’s a perfect happy mix of colors, and it excites me every time I look at it.
    What an adorable idea, and unique – I haven’t seen any garters on any of the blogs I have been following, best of luck with the new business venture Julianne! And thank you for doing your part to help our planet earth :)

  • Nichole

    Correction: Julianne, after I visited your website just now, I realized that you are an experienced garter maker, and this isn’t a new venture!
    Sorry about that! Your traditional work and embroidered garters are gorgeous!
    (I suppose that by commenting twice however; I am increasing my odds, tee hee)

  • mary

  • Erin

    I love the green and white garter!! I love the idea of wearing a green and white garter to my green and white wedding, which by the way is as eco-conscience or “green” as we can possibly make it. :-) What a fantastic idea!

  • Ryann

    I love the grey one with the white ribbon!

    Thank you for this nice giveaway! :)

  • PDX Amy

    It’s amazing what recycled plastic bottles can become. My parents have carpet made from them! I love her eco-conscious business leap. Good and super cute! I would want the garter on the bottom left. Green and white are my colors and I love that simple chic garter. Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Kimberly

    I love them all, but the blue would go with my fiancee’s Navy uniform, so that’s the one I choose. Love them!

  • I love the grey and white garter – we’re trying to make very eco-conscious choices for our wedding next summer, and this garter would fit in perfectly!

  • Ria

    I love the khaki and blue garter! We might not be doing a garter toss, but this gorgeous little piece will certainly be a welcome surprise for my Mr. after the reception ;) Plus, it fits our wedding colors and will satisfy our desire to keep our wedding eco-conscious!

  • Tara

    I wouldn’t mind any of them, the blue is perfect for that something blue and the grey just goes with everything!

  • quyen

    I love the green & white garter … as my wedding color is green!

  • Peach

    I think the green one is just so fun… what a great color!

  • eddie

    I would love to give the blue one to my friend who is getting married this July. It would be her something blue and something new.

  • love the gray!

  • Heather

    Love the tan with the navy! A great ‘something blue’!

  • Regina Baptista

    The blue and tan hands down for me – it’s so truly vintage chic! The perfect marriage (pun intended) of sexy style and timeless classic with a modern twist! My mother actually wore a similar grosgrain garter for her wedding and we had hoped that it could be my “something borrowed” but alas she just retired and moved and it was lost in the shuffle of the move :( However, this would be the perfect replacement for that lost garter – I would love for this to be my something blue and it would work so well with my color palette of muted tones and super vintage vibe.

  • Jessica

    Our colors are apple green and chocolate – I would LOVE to wear the green one!

  • I love the gray and white. So chic!

  • I love the gray garter. It’s so pretty and elegant!

  • I adore the gray and white garter. It would fit the feel of my wedding perfectly!

  • Gray and white for me, please. It is so adorable, and I love the “green” factor!

  • Bre

    I love the grey, it is darling!

  • Emily Heeringa

    I love the green one! My fiance and I are getting married next October. We’re going with aqua (my fave color) and green (his fave color). That green is the perfect shade! Love it!

  • Jackie

    Wow, they are made from recycled plastic bottles?!? That is amazing. I’m loving the white and yellow garter. Just stands out to me. :)

  • tara

    I really love the blue one. I think it would go with so many different themes. For my wedding, which is 1920’s themes, I would have to say the the green one would go best since I plan to incorporate feathers into some of the elements, so the green would go with the peacock feathers.
