Who Are the Garter Brides?

It all started, as many great adventures do, with girlfriends having dinner (i.e., drinks). Nina, Ann and Pat were business colleagues and longtime friends, all over the age of thirty-five. All had successful careers and were going on dates (approximately 9,000 of those by Pat alone, according to her), but none of them thought she'd get married. But...Six months later Nina got married. Six months after that, Ann got married. Six months after that, Pat got married. Nina said, "At my age you wear a garter, but you don't throw it." She slipped it off and gave it to Ann, who wore it at her wedding. Ann then gave it to Pat, who wore it at her wedding. They named themselves The Garter Brides and a new tradition was born!

Today girlfriends ranging in age from thirty-eight to fifty-seven have worn this good-luck garter, and it has traveled - in a FedEx box - all over the United States and even to that city of newlywed bliss, Venice.

Send in your questions in the comment section below!

These women have a lot to share. They won't insult your intelligence with babble about getting in touch with your inner beauty. And, as they say, "We understand you have a busy life you'd love to share, a cozy bed into which you'd welcome a good man for some great sex and great fun, and a well-oiled BS detector you didn't possess in your twenties. You're mature enough to handle grown-up love, to move forward without looking back and to appreciate how great a gift that is."

Hmmmm....sounds like some people in our RemarriageWorks.com audience who are thinking about or taking the plunge of getting remarried may like this!  We invite you to post your questions as a comment for The Garter Brides here! And, enter to win a free copy of their book, too.
