  • The Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding Garter from La Gartier Wedding Garters

    Ok, so let me guess. You love Art Deco. You have read The Great Gatsby at least two times. You adore ornate framed, gilt vintage mirrors. You can't live without the color gold and when it comes to romance, you immediately imagine old-Hollywood glamour.
    Sound like you? 
    The reason that I write this is because I too share your obsession. In fact, I think I have read The Great Gatsby more than four times, and I saw The Great Gastby directed by Baz Luhrmann on opening night...and not long ago, we designed a wedding garter inspired by the dripping glamour of Art Deco. 
    Fun fact: she's still in our collection. After four years, we still have her!
    In fact, she has become one of our most popular wedding garter designs, that I doubt we will ever transition her out. (no promises though. Who knows with these crazy 2022 supply chain issues.) 
    Without further adieu, meet the Aurora garter.

    This garter is made of a sparkling rhinestone band and center "Gatsby draping" rhinestone/chain detail. The top band features 16 brilliant circular Swarovski crystal rhinestones encircled by two additional, micro rings of rhinestones for added wow-factor. But this is nothing compared to the centerpiece. Anchored at the center, a statement detail covered in marquis-shaped gems shines bright like a diamond, flanked by ball-chain strings on the left and right side. The back half of this design is made of a soft, light ivory elastic, cut to fit the exact measurement of your leg. 💗 💋 Since this design was released in 2014, we have had numerous clients as us if the center statement piece will get caught on their gown or be obtrusive as they walk. The answer is heck no! We would never release a garter that was not sound functionally-speaking ..and never have our Aurora brides reported that the centerpiece was heavy OR that it caught on the fabric of their gowns. However, if you have any questions or concerns, please email us at and we will be more than happy to assist you. 💗

    This garter would be PERFECT for a bride who loves any and all things Gatsby/Art-Deco-inspired. This garter would also work extremely well for a bride who is wearing a form-fitting gown (ie: mermaid or trumpet) due to the fact that it lies very flat against the leg. This design has been worn by many high-profile brides, including model/reality TV star Kandi Burruss.  🙌

  • Custom Spotlight: Kaci Vrabec's Mother's Shirt Transformed Into A Wedding Garter Set

    Just finished: La Gartier bride Kaci Vrabec custom paisley shirt and Fleur De Lis wedding garter set. Oh, did I mention art deco 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 "something blue" wedding garter set EVER created: the blue paisley fabric that you see on the back of her keepsake garter and the body of her toss garter were taken from a shirt that once belonged to Kaci's nana. Kaci lost her grandmother not too long ago, and wanted to have something on her wedding day that was symbolic of her shining personality and kind heart. When I heard this, I knew right away that this was a project that I wanted to be apart of. So, Kaci shipped me the Paisley shirt and we set to work with the #LoveTransformation project right away. (If you follow us on instagram, then chances are you saw the video where I was cutting up this shirt with Poison by Bell Biv Devoe blasting in the background.) 
    The final product came out STUNNING!! Truth be told:  The elements of Kaci's design were so multi-layered and meaningful that I can't think of anything else to do but bullet-point them! Scroll through the photos below to learn more about what might be the world's most special "something blue" garter set ever created.

    Kaci is saying "I Do" in New Orleans, so we decided to add a tiny Fleur De Lis pendant to the center of her toss garter to symbolize what will forever be the location of the happiest day in her life. *grabs tissues*

    I had a feeling that Kaci was not going to want to toss her custom Fleur De Lis toss garter, so I created a third sparkling design for her that would work well with her gown and also impress all of her guests. (But not so special that she wouldn't want to toss it. )

    The tiny silver Fleur De Lis pendant was an Etsy find. My favorite part? The shop we purchased it from was located in NOLA.

    My favorite detail? The tag from Kaci's Nana's shirt was sewn to the inside of her toss garter as a special, hidden detail.
