Embrace tradition with something blue from The Wedding Garter Company

The beautiful ivory lace motif of this unusual design is backed in baby-blue elastic velvet, and all garters are handmade to order in the company’s workshop just outside Bath. Make it personal by adding initial charms or invest in a ‘toss garter’ in a choice of designs. From £39.80

Keep it simple with a matching set from Pour Moi

The three-section cup on this floral lace Amour bra gives va-va-voom where it’s needed, and the matching briefs complete the look. Best of all is the range of sizes (up to an H cup) and colour choice – we love the ivory but could be very tempted by a bright colour like coral with a sapphire lace overlay. £26
