  • To Do The Garter Toss? Or To NOT Do The Garter Toss? Your Wedding Garter Questions Answered.

    Last week, I was scrolling through instagram and saw a story on the Bella Belle Shoes page that asked "What Things Will You Definitely NOT being doing on your wedding day?"
    I immediately sat up. I just knew that the garter toss was going to be listed over and over again, further tarnishing the reputation of wedding garters irreparably. 
    As I clicked through to the following stories, sure enough-- there it was listed at the top. One bride wrote "The Garter Toss! So not cute! My parents would die!" 
    On the next story, there was an entire paragraph from one bride who went on and one about why she wasn't going to do the garter toss and how out-dated it was.  
    Guys. I get it. Seriously, I do. To be completely honest, I am not a huge fan myself of the garter toss photos that we get back from our brides where the groom's head is up the skirt of our brides' gowns. For one thing, it isn't a flattering angle of the dress. And secondly, you can rarely ever even see the garter she is wearing in the photos. 
    But here is what irks me: the wedding garter has so many more uses than for just that part of your wedding day!
    If you want to do the garter toss, then that is one hundred percent fine!  But if you don't, then please hear me out: There are five different super special reasons that you want to have a wedding garter that you might not even know about. Let's take a look at them here:

    1. The Wedding Garter is the Ultimate Heirloom Accessory
    When it comes to accessories that you are going to cherish and potentially past down through generations, there is nothing so perfect as your wedding garter. Your veil is a close second, but the garter reins supreme. Tons of our brides purchase a garter from us with the intention of showcasing it for years to come in a glass box in their home, and then passing it down to their future daughter or loved one. And honestly- it makes perfect sense. Your garter (if they are ours) are a tiny, perfect expression of your personality and the essence of your wedding day style. The chances that it will fit a future loved one are high due to the fact that wedding garters are a one-size-fits-most accessory. When it comes to the question of tossing your garter or not tossing your garter, I am completely neutral. However, when it comes to the question of having a garter that you can have as a gorgeous heirloom that you can pass down through generations, I am a passionate YES GIRL. 
    phew! i'm saved! i e-mailed the bride blogger right away and offered to make her a wedding garter.

    2. The Wedding Garter is a Must-Have For Your Getting Ready Photos
    Ok, so have you ever seen a picture of a bride getting ready- wearing a gorgeous bridal robe with a garter? It's pure beauty. The addition of a wedding garter completely glamorizes your getting-ready-outfit! I know this for a fact because I have seen so many of our brides send us pictures after their wedding day. There is just something so Beyonce-worthy about a bride wearing her garter as she sits crossed legged, getting her make up done, her hair up in curlers or whatever it may be. I swear, it's almost like the garter makes our brides look more like a Victoria's Secret Angel as they get ready, even if the room is a total mess behind them. (Case in point: the gorgeous photo at the top of this blog! This is Manuela Arbelaez, one of the models on The Price Is Right, wearing her custom La Gartier garter while she is getting ready for her wedding! I mean, can someone say beautiful?!  Also, check out the photo below of The Bachelor's Nikki Ferrell wearing her opalescent Athena garter as she sits pretty, preparing for her wedding ceremony!

    Now just imagine what this would look like without a garter. Not as good, right? My point exactly. Ok, rant over. Let's look at my favorite reason you want a La Gartier garter beyond the purposes of just the garter toss....

    3. The Wedding Garter Can Be Used As A Baby Headband After Your Wedding
    In recent years, our clients have started to re-purpose their wedding garters as baby headbands. (Mic Drop) I mean, can someone say genius?! The photo above was featured by People Magazine after one of our past beloved clients, Sabrina Bryan of The Cheetah Girls, had a precious baby girl named Comillia Monroe. To this day, we treasure this photo. Truth fast: we have dozens and dozens of these photos from our clients that are equally heart-warming. I wish I could post all of them here, but I know you are eager to get to the fourth reason wedding garters are incredible beyond just the garter toss. Let's take a look at the next one below!

    4. The Wedding Garter Is A Perfect Addition To Your Pre-Wedding Bridal Boudoir Shoot
    Are you planning on doing a boudoir shoot before the wedding? Say yes say yes say yes. If so, you might consider wearing a garter along with your super sexy bridal boudoir ensemble. While it is a small detail, it is a powerful one. And if you are looking to blow your look out-of-the-water, I would strongly suggest NOT going without one. Need proof? Here are a few additional photos of our clients wearing their beloved La Gartier Garters during their pre-wedding boudoir shoots!

    5. The Wedding Garter Will Make Your Wedding Details Photos Look Even Better
    This one is huge. This one is big. When it comes to those special little flat-lays that include your shoes, your rings, your earrings, and perhaps your invitations, you don't want to miss out on the inclusion of your garter. Instead of talking you into it verbally, I am going to show you why garters make such an excellent addition to any and all wedding details photos. Are you ready for this?! Keep scrolling down.

    So, if you decide that you hate the garter toss, then I understand. I do. But please don't give up on the idea of the wedding garter altogether. If there is one thing that I can tell you for sure, it's that there are so many other fantastic reasons to have one other than the little garter removal tradition that it has so wrenchingly become known for. And would you believe me if I told you that there are even more reasons than just the one listed above? It's true. If you need more convincing, then we are here for it. Simply email us at and we'll be happy to give you an ear full. Until then, I hope that this helps you make your decision. Love you. Mean it.

    When it comes to cute and modern, our garters are hands-down the best on the market. And while I realize that I sound like a huge braggart right now, the truth is....well, it really is #FACTS. 
    I have spent countless hours googling phrases such as "modern wedding garters" and "unique wedding garters" and there really isn't anything else out there that compares to the craftsmanship, the quality, and the pure artfulness that we put into our pieces. 
    If you are looking for an unapologetically cute wedding garter, then here are five our our most popular styles, listed in order of popularity!

    2. The Floral Fairytale Wedding Garter 
     This garter is made out of a 3-D floral and swarovski crystal band. Sprinkled throughout the body of the garter are tiny blue and ivory pearls as well as pink and purple transparent beading. The back elastic band is created using a fine ivory satin with floral embroidered lace on top and bottom.🌸  Hand-sewn along the band are 8 tiny flowers centered with 1 single swarovski crystal rhinestone at the center for added sparkle. 💎  The best part? The inner lining of this garter is made using white seersucker and white double-faced satin ribbon for an original and crisp touch. Please note: this is a limited-edition design. We have only three of these in stock. Once we are sold out of this piece, it will never be available again. 🧵 If you are interested in seeing more of this design, then please click here to be directed to the listing in our shop!

    3. The Venus Pearl Garter 
    Most arguably our most sought-after wedding garter design, the Venus Pearl garter is everything people say she is and more.  When aiming to find the balance between classicism and modernism, look no farther than the Venus Pearl garter. Set within a sparkling swarovski crystal front band, exactly 22 pearls gleam like eternal moons in an intentionally cluster-like, celestial pattern.  ☪️  The best part? If you look closely, you will see that there are exactly three star shapes hidden within the band, meant to symbolize growth in life or personal achievements. (no, seriously-- google it. Star symbolism.) 🌟

    4. The Zodiac Wedding Garter

    The Zodiac garter (a.k.a. The Astrology Garter) was made for the bride who adores astrology, the signs of the zodiac, horoscopes, and love compatibility theory. When asked if her soul mate's natural habits and inclinations have anything to do with the time of year he/she was born, she will most likely respond with a passionate YES.

    She is someone who reads her horoscope monthly, and most likely sends all of her friends their horoscopes monthly too. This bride is deeply spiritual, and decided a LONG TIME AGO that there are powers at work in our universe that are greater than ourselves. She knows that we cannot always control what happens, however we can control how we react to it.

    Mystical, semi-superstitious, and full of glamour, this bride to be adores accessories that speak to her personality and her life on a deep level. 

    Side note: due to the ice blue color of the stones within this garter, this design would make for a  PERFECT "something blue." Interested to see more? Click here to go to the listing on our website!

    5. The Ever After Wedding Garter 


    Where do we start?? This garter is so magical, that we need at least a paragraph to describe its multi-dimensional components! 💎  First, a little back story: When creating this garter, the first feature that we knew that we wanted to include was tons of sparkle, a distinct 3-D floral element and a distinct "princess blue" color. 💙

    As you can see in the photos above, the front band is primarily comprised of clear, sparkling pear-shaped swarovski crystals. ✨  Blooming from within the sparkling band are exactly five flowers: three blue (made of a soft acrylic and a rhinestone detail at the center of each flower) as well as two white flowers (made of gauzy, ethereal organza with a pearl detail at the center.) 🌸

    The best part? The inside of the back band is embroidered with the words "Happily Ever After" in princess blue. (something blue? check and check✔️✔️) Other details to note: the back band is created using a lace overlay on the outside which can be admired from behind you was you walk down the aisle or dance the night away on the dance floor). The back band also features 15 sparkling swarovski crystal rhinestone embellishments. (hand-placed for extra sparkle.) ✨

    This garter was worn by Lauren Burnham of The Bachelor on her wedding day. 🌹 To see the national press attention it received, please click here to see the story that US Weekly wrote. 🙌

    The one and only Mariya Khlysta wearing our Oh-So-Engaged earrings with a robe from Plum Pretty Sugar!!! (Mic drop.) 🎤🎤 A big big teary-eyed, heart-bursting-with-gratitude THANK YOU to everyone who made our most recent, floral-inspired photoshoot possible!  Dear photographer Kelly Lane: it hurts to think I might not have met you. Your photography skills are a true creative blessing to all of us. The world. Me. The flowers. Your kitty. The city of Atlanta at large. Just EVERYONE. 🙏🏼🙏🏼💋💋💋
    And to model Mariya Khlysta- all I can say is that the woman at the Chanel counter who insisted that I get in touch with you is getting a special thank you package this week. Like, tomorrow. I’m totally serious. I owe her one big time and there is DEFINITELY some big magic up in the sky that helped us cross paths. I am stunned by the combination of your physical beauty and your inner prettiness. It’s definitely not common. Girl, you are a TRUE UNICORN. 🦄🦄🦄🦄.
    To make up artist Erica Bogart: I am not only grateful for your shimmer-highlight-glam-bam-talents, but to the universe in general for bringing us closer these past few months via various creative projects. I once heard somebody say “let your work be your prayer” .....and I can’t help but wonder if our simultaneous always-striving-to-grow-to-greater-heights hustle is, at this point in our lives, in perfect alignment with one another’s right now...which....when fused together, consequently resulted in these incredible photos of Mariya ...not to mention mini-charcuterie boards and pink telephones. 👯📞😂
    And to the amazing ATL bridal store Elite Pour La Vie- I am speechless. This gown made the entire shoot and I would like to apologize to NO ONE about how much we are going to be tagging you in 2021. 😂😂🤗 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
    If anyone out there reading this is truly smitten with the wedding dress in these photos, please get in touch with a store called Elite Pour La Vie. You won’t regret it. People fly out to Atlanta every week to try on gowns at this legendary store. 💗💗
