This summer has been the summer of hand-written thank you notes from our brides! It seems that almost every time I check our studio mail box, we have another heart-warming note from one of our past clients. Recently, it came to my attention that we don't have a place on the website for customer reviews quite yet (bear with us-- the website is still SO.DARN.NEW.)So, in an attempt to show you all just how amazing our customer reviews really are, I have uploaded a few of our most recent customer hand-written notes below! We should have a gorgeous review platform built into the website by Thanksgiving, however for now, here are a few testimonials from our past brides for you to see! (Btw- a huge thank you Kama, Lindsey and Stephanie for having hearts of gold!)

Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Melanie Smith's Rose Gold and Air Force-Inspired Wedding Garter SetJust finished: La Gartier bride Melanie Smith's custom Air Force Wings & Rose Gold sparkle wedding garter set. Oh, did I mention black striped seersucker too? That too. This garter set was so incredible on so many different levels. I barely know where to begin. Here is the story behind what is possibly the prettiest Air Force-inspired wedding garter set EVER created: the wings that you see on Melanie's toss garter (that she will of course never actually toss!) were taken from her fiance Matt's actual Air Force uniform. (His wings protecting her as she walks down the aisle? I die.) Then, because Melanie's engagement ring is a stop-the-show-rose-gold-stunner, we decided to create her keepsake using a sparkling rose gold jeweled front piece, with a 3-D floral back band to compliment the floral-detailing on her gown. (I would tell you the name and designer of her gown, but then I might have to kill you.)My favorite part? For her "something blue" we included the latitude and longitude coordinates of her wedding venue in NOLA via navy blue embroidery. (Another nod to both Melanie's fiance's Air Force roots) ✈️✈️Lastly, to bring in a touch of Melanie's personal style (I did some creeping on her Instagram. Sorry, not sorry) we decided to use a black metallic sparkle seersucker fabric for the base of her toss garter. All in all, this set is a gem of originality. Melanie- I am bragging shamelessly for us both when I say that I am fairly certain that we just made the prettiest (and most preppy!) Air Force-inspired wedding garters to ever grace this great land of liberty. Working on this love-infused project with you fills me with pride for not only this beautiful garter set we made together, but also our gorgeous country in all its sparkling strength.Below are detailed photos of Melanie's unbelievably special wedding garter set! If you love this set as much as we do, then read the captions below each photo to learn more about the details that make this design so meaningful!! Interested in a custom garter set of your own?? You can contact us by clicking here.The rose gold detailing on the front of Melanie's keepsake garter matches her unbelievably pretty rose gold-set diamond engagement ring.I know that is is hard to tell in this photo- but the latitude and longitude coordinates that we included on the inside of Melanie's keepsake garter were done in a deep navy blue, thereby allowing Melanie to check off her "something blue" in a unique and totally original way. These coordinates correspond to her wedding venue in NOLA. Can someone say meaningful?!?The wings on Melanie's toss garter are real. They were taken by Melanie (on the sly...while her fiance wasn't looking) and mailed to our studios here in Atlanta. I literally tear up at the thought of Melanie's daughter wearing this garter down the aisle in 20 or 30 years, protected by her father's wings and her mother's love.The seersucker that we used on her toss garter was such a delight to work with! In fact, it has given us an idea for our winter limited edition garter that we have a feeling you all are going to love! Stay tuned!

There is nothing like starting a new work week with a brand new feature on one of the most popular wedding blogs in America. Seriously, if I had to pick between a brand new pair of Louboutins and a press feature as lovely as this, I would pick the press every single time. Suffice to say, I knew that this week was off to a great start when the uber-well-known wedding blog Elizabeth Anne Designs published a styled shoot that we participated in last month at Lonesome Valley Resort in Ashevill, North Carolina!The inspiration for the day was Rustic Mountain Romance...and I am not lying when I tell you that every detail that day was dripping with rustic charm, elegant greenery and organic elegance! Below are photos from the shoot, including my two favorites: the photos that show off our opal Hayley garter alongside Jimmy Choo's sparkle glitter "Romy" heels. (something blue? Check and check.)Below are photos from this natural, oh-so organic & GLAMOUROUS styled shoot that just made our Fri-day feel like Fri-yay. Want to see more?

Hi all! We are coming in hot this Monday morning with sad news: our Electric Boho limited-edition design is officially #LaGarterExtinct, meaning that we will not have it back in stock EVER.
As we realized that this must be upsetting news, here is a photo of an adorable puppy in a sweater to ease the pain:
Helpful? We hope so. And if not, then here is a little back story on how we run our limited-edition designs so that this doesn't happen to you again: we release exactly 4 limited-edition garters per year: one in the summer, one in the fall, one in the winter and one in the spring. The Electric Boho was our summer limited edition and we only had 10 to offer from the get-go. Fortunately unfortunately, all ten have found homes with brides from around the world (mostly the United States but one in the UK and one in Australia!) which means that this beautiful and rare design is now an elegant dinosaur in the world of wedding garters.
BUT don't despair: we have something up our sleeve that might turn that frown upside down: we are currently working on our fall limited-edition at the moment and it is coming out BEAUTIFULLY. Below are a few sneak peek photos of the inspiration behind our newest design. <pause> I am going to stop talking now before I give away any additional revealing details. <puts hand over mouth>
