  • Semi-Custom Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Kristina Baldwin's Blush Pink Unicorn Wedding Garter Set

    Whenever I meet a bride-to-be who likes the color pink as well as unicorns, I know immediately that we are going to have a BALL designing her wedding garter set. This was exactly the case when I "e-met" La Gartier bride Kristina Baldwin, who told me that she wanted to book a semi-custom garter that included blush pink as well as some sort of unicorn motif. (See photos below!)

    Kristina had chosen a stunning Hayley Paige gown for her wedding day on March 1st, 2019 and she wanted a unicorn symbol to represent not only the magical-atmosphere of her wedding day but also the iconic Hayley Paige brand. It was a PERFECT match as we have a silver unicorn charm within our semi-custom charm collection. Doesn't it look stunning underneath the bow on her french lace toss garter?!

    Then, because Kristina chose blush pink as one of the primary colors of her wedding day, we picked out a pink embroidery thread for her initials and wedding date. See the inner embroidery below? This was such a personal, heirloom-appropriate detail to include within her wedding garter set!!

    Lastly, because Kristina's gown included opals (she was wearing Hayley Paige's Reagan gown which is to-die-for. Seriously. Google it.) she picked the Athena garter as her main keepsake design. All in all, this semi-custom wedding garter set screams Christina, her personality, her love of all things girly and the utter magical-allure of her wedding day.

  • Published! Our Hayley Paige Opal Wedding Garter Featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs!

    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? Click here to read the full feature on Elizabeth Anne Designs!

  • Published! La Gartier Bride Alex Perry's Custom Love Bird Wedding Garter Set Featured on Style Me Pretty!

    I love press more than shoes. Seriously, if I had to choose between a new feature in a bridal magazine or a pair of Louboutins, I would pick the press feature every.single.time.
    Suffice to say, I was ecstatic to wake up last Thursday and discover that La Gartier bride Alex Perry's custom garter set was featured on the uber-popular wedding blog Style Me Pretty. (If you haven't heard of it, navigate here immediately.)
    Alex's super dreamy custom garters were made using a vintage Love Bird pendant that she shipped to us from NYC ( i die) complete with an embedded diamond + ruby detailing.
    Scroll through the photos below to see more images from what is arguable the prettiest black tie wedding of 2016. Want to see more? Click here to see the blog that we wrote about Alexa's wedding garter set a few months ago! Happy La Gartier everyone!! And THANK YOU Style Me Pretty!

  • A Vintage Locket & Opal Wedding Garter For La Gartier bride Victoria Henderson

    As June comes to a close, so does all of our June customizations. This month, I worked with three different brides to create 3 completely unique wedding garters sets. While I don't usually play favorites, I have to say that June's "winning" custom garter design is La Gartier bride Victoria Henderson's vintage locket and opal garter set. (see photos  and captions below!) 
    When Victoria contacted us last March to book her custom garter, she told me that she wanted something that matched her gown as well as the beading on her sash. I agreed to take on her customization immediately, expecting it to turn out just like her gown.......... but her garters ended up being SO MUCH MORE!! Here are just a few photos of Victoria's garter set along with some written info about my favorite designs elements: 

    vintage locket wedding garter

    The rose gold locket at the center of her toss is an original antique that Victoria and I stumbled across on Etsy. We just about died when we found this one because "M" is the first initial of her fiancé' name: Montana. We weren't even looking for an engraved locket, let alone one engraved with an "M"....but it's my personal opinion that this BEAUTY found its way to us for the creation of her garters. Meant to be? Yes, yes and yes!

    The pink velvet ribbon on her toss garter was chosen to match her bridesmaids dresses as well as the slight blush pink tone of her Enzoani bridal gown. Also, the opal and rhinestone beading on her keepsake matches the beading on her sash, but not so matchy matchy that it's obnoxious.

    something blue embroidered garter

    Her wedding date and initials are embroidered on the inside of her garter in navy blue to match her groomsmens tuxes. (This means that Victoria has not only one but two "something blues" for her wedding day!)

    Because Victoria didn't want to toss her vintage "M" locket garter, we created this amazing "G" inspired toss for her. That way, she could keep the vintage locket design and still do the garter toss. (G is the first letter of her new last name! So appropriate, right?!)

    The only thing not pictured here is all of the beautiful custom packaging that we created when we packed up her garters to be shipped!!  Also not pictured here is the look on her daughter's face 30 years from now when Victoria gives her one or both of these garters for her very own wedding day!! <insert happy tears emoji>
    Victoria, I can't wait to hear about what you decide to put into the locket. Knowing how much you love florals and greenery, I have a feeling it will be something organic from your wedding day but anything you decide will most likely be beyond gorgeous!
    If you love these photos as much as we do and would like to speak with someone about having a custom garter made for yourself or someone whom you love, then please feel free to contact us via email at OR you can use the contact form by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone! 
  • Bringing Wedding Garters Back One Sparkle at a Time

    I am honestly not sure how wedding garters ever fell by the wayside as a basic wedding accessory. It seemed that they were on fire during the seventies and eighties, but by the nineties, they had stopped being a go-to, must-have wedding accessory. Perhaps this was due to the fact that their design was never updated. However, if there is one thing that is for sure: I intend to bring them back, one sparkle at a time. 
    This week, I owe photographer Holly Trizzino of Intimately Inspiring Photography a BIG thank you for helping me in my hot pursuit of this aim. With her help, along with our model, Carly Grace, I feel one step closer to revolutionizing the world of wedding garters. 
    The photos below were taken as apart of a bridal boudior shoot that Holly, Carly and I put together about four weeks ago. When I saw the images being taken in Holly's camera, I knew we were in for a treat but I honestly didn't know just how much of a treat. Can someone say gorgeous?? 
    Below are just a few of my favorite photos from this month's beautiful photoshoot, with a little bit of information below each photo about the design elements and outfit details in each photo!

    I am a huge believer in adding floral elements to ANY bridal boudior shoot. They not only give you something to do with your hands, but they add so much femininity and just a touch of color to every photo. Fun fact: this particular batch of roses were on sale at my local grocery for less than ten dollars. I actually recommend buying a sale bouquet versus a new bouquet, because the roses are generally a little more open. As long as the petals are wilting, then buying a dozen roses from your local grocery store will save you a TON of money. Promise.

    A big thank you to photographer Holly Trizzino Photography for being such a talented, angel of a woman. And thank you to Carly Grace for being such a model yogi doll for us last Saturday. Shoots like this are why we continue on our mission to BRING WEDDING GARTERS BACK ONE SPARKLE AT A TIME.
