While choosing your bridal gown, you will want to start thinking of accessories, veils, head pieces, shoes, and garters. Today’s post will feature the beautiful designs and creations of The Perle, sold exclusively on Etsy. A few days ago I received a very special parcel for my wedding from The Perle. I was so pleased with my customised gift, and decided to feature it on my blog.
Etsy celebrated their 10th year anniversary this month, I find it truly inspiring how a simple idea, with a shared vision created spectacular connections between small business owners and customers. Linking social relations with business. With over 2 Billion users, Etsy has a wide list of clients that provide unique, and beautiful products, from home décor, to wedding suppliers, jewellery and fashion. I have personally purchased many items from Etsy, that I am more than pleased with. I would highly recommend Etsy as a purchaser & provider.

The Perle Bridal offers a wide range of exclusive luxury products that are handmade with true dedication and love. Perle shared her inspirational story with me, while providing me with a very important bridal accessory, a Garter. Throughout the years the traditions and meanings of garters have changed. In modern days the practice of removing the bride’s garter is traditionally reserved to the groom, who will then toss the garter to the unmarried male guests. This is performed after the tossing of the bouquet, in which the bride tosses her bouquet over her shoulder to be caught by the unwed female guests. According to superstition, the lady who catches the bouquet and the man who catches the garter will be the next man and woman among those in attendance to be married (though perhaps not to each other). The ceremony often continues with the man who catches the garter obliged to place it on the leg of the lady who caught the bouquet. Traditionally, the pair are obliged to share the next dance. Personally on my wedding day I would be wearing a garter purely as a decorative accessory, rather than to follow any traditions.
Perle graduated with an engineering degree from Istanbul, her passion was to create timeless pieces, and she in fact once designed her own New Years Eve dress. The idea of creating customised garters emerged after attending her cousin’s wedding in America. Learning more about garters, and their traditional meaning, she fell in love with the concept, and seized the opportunity to introduce garters to the Istanbul market. Quitting her successful day job, to devote all her time and passion into customising unique bridal accessories. She established her business on Etsy, and is now selling her products worldwide.
“ My products reflect my soul, I fully devote my self into each creation. Making sure they are Luxury, Authentic, and Unique. I seek to expand my business further, by creating more bridal accessories in the future. “ Perle
