This morning, I woke up to the loveliest email from La Gartier bride Sujan Pang. Sujan was married just two short weeks ago and was kind enough to send us photos of her custom military name tag garter from her wedding day. I am going to be completely honest-- not all of the photos that our brides send to us are knock outs. With garters being as sexy as they are, the photos that we get back can be borderline pornographic, so I relish photos like the ones below that exude class, meaning and most of all-- HEART. Dear Sujan, thank you from the bottom of our company's heart for taking the time to send us these beautiful images!!!! (#loveyou #meanit)Creating your custom military name tag garter for you was an absolute blast!If you love these photos as much as we do and would like to speak with someone about having a custom military name tag garter made for yourself or someone whom you love, then please feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org OR you can use the contact form by clicking here.

Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier bride Lindsay Rogers' Military Garter and Notre Dame Toss Garter Set
I'm not going to lie, I am not a huge fan of sports-themed garters. Neither is La Gartier bride Lindsay Rogers. I mean, let's be real, after seeing so many organza-centric, cheap satin sports garters on Etsy, it's hard to get on board with the idea of a football themed garter under your gown. But when Lindsay contacted us last January, she had only her fiance's interests in mind instead of her own. (pretty sure that's called love) That is, when Lindsay contacted us months ago, she told me that she really wanted to have a toss garter that her fiancé would be psyched to find on her leg without all of the cheesiness that you find with other sports garters she had seen, so we created a very chic, velvet-based Norte Dame toss garter using high-end materials. Then, to make her set a true heirloom piece, Lindsay shipped me the name tag from her fiancé's military uniform. (tissues, anyone?) The final set is so incredible!! (see photos below) When I look at this set, I can't help but think of Lindsay walking down the aisle literally wearing something that her fiancé wore while defending our country. In this way, her garter seems to become a symbol of not only American protection but also his protection of her, wrapped pretty around her leg like a love shield. Lindsay, it's been such an honor to work with you!!! Thank you for trusting me with such deeply meaningful items!!

Just finished: La Gartier bride Jamie Boekhoff's gorgeous custom army name tag wedding garter set!! The story: Jamie's fiance was in the army special forces, so she wanted a design that had a meaningful army touch but that retained a classic, feminine look. So, we chose the Athena garter as her keepsake garter but opted to personalize it by incorporating her fiance's army name tag (taken straight from his uniform!) into the back band. 💗 To add to the heirloom integrity of this garter set, Jamie sent me lace from her mother's wedding gown to use on both her keepsake and her toss (which she will never actually toss) and a "St. Lucia" blue turquoise ribbon for the center bow on her toss garter. The turquoise blue ribbon serves as not only her something blue but also a nod to the color of her bridesmaids gowns AND the location of her wedding -- ST.LUCIA!! 🐠🌴🌊🐚 🐟🐬 The best part? The skeleton key hanging from the center of her toss garter symbolizes her love for her recently departed grandfather, who was a huge lover of skeleton keys and who gave Jamie a small collection when he passed. Jamie, creating this set with you has been touching, rewarding and just plain fun! I can't believe we started with the name tag concept alone and then somehow managed to create a piece with multiple layers of meaning!! And so naturally!! If there was ever a wedding accessory to be kept, it's this one. We did good!!!
