Oh nonny! Thank you for sharing your wonderful story about the garter for your DD.

My DD was very close to her great-grandfather: her 'something old' is one of his linen handkerchiefs, and he used to tell her that he hoped to live long enough to dance with her at her wedding. Unfortunately he didn't, so she chose his birthday as her wedding day so she could share the day with him.
