1920s flapper accessories: Garter flask holder

1920s style garter flask holderI was contacted the other day by a woman who makes a product she thought I'd like — and she was right! Boy, I wish I had known about her garter flask holders before my wedding!

Although the garter flask holders are made for any type of wedding or other occasion, they are SO fitting for 1920s theme weddings and parties. Garter flask holders were used by flappers and other women during Prohibition in order to conceal illegal liquor. Garter flask holders for the ladies in your wedding party would be a perfect addition to a speakeasy-themed wedding reception!

The Juliette Wear site shows several wedding photos with the ladies in the wedding party all wearing their garter flask holders. Some wear theirs concealed under full gowns, while others wear them so that they're visible under shorter gowns. My favorite is the picture of the bridesmaids in green with hot pink garter flask holders. They were obviously meant to be seen, and they look great!

The site sells garter flask holders in half a dozen different colors, but with an option for custom orders — so you can really have fun with this one!

Another great build your own garter site...http://www.bootleggershipflask.com/.
I found it awhile ago and have been saving it along with others for when I finally do get married.

I bought garters from Bootleggers for my bridesmaids. They are awesome. I'm going to buy more pockets because they are interchangeable.

Liz, I don't think she was selling them, she was just using them for displaying the garter flask holder. :o) You can probably go to her site and email her to find out where she got the bra and panties, though.
