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:
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.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 firstname.lastname@example.org OR you can use the contact form by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone!

For some, St. Patrick's Day is a holiday best spent drinking green beer, eating corn beef and cabbage or commemorating the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. For others, St. Patrick's Day is all about celebrating the color green and finally saying goodbye to the Ugg wearing days of winter. Like many of my color-obsessed wedding industry colleagues, I definitely fall into the latter of those two categories. This year, St. Patrick's Day meant creating an instagram video using green roses (swoon) as well as the one rare occasion to purchase a gold Shamrock paperweight from Target. (At $19.00, this item is an absolute steal!) The only thing missing from this video is a rainbow, which..... believe it or not, I actually spent quite some time trying to figure out how to manufacture. Turns out that Mother Nature is the only one who has that down. Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you are wearing your prettiest green dress/blouse/heels/earrings right now!! (Btw- if you love the garter that I am wearing in this video, you can make it your own by clicking here.)

The beginning of February went off with a bang when Jennifer Williams of Jennifer Williams Boudoir sent me the prettiest photographs from a recent bridal boudoir shoot that she did using our ivory pearl toss garter.
The timing could not have been more perfect with Valentine's Day sitting smack dab in the middle of the month. I means, seriously, nothing says I Love You more than a sizzling bridal boudoir session set in a sea of creamy linen sheets and high-quality lingerie.
Valentine's Day aside, I was also extremely happy that Jennifer sent us these images due to the fact that they single handedly make one point very clear: if you are planning on doing a bridal boudoir shoot before you wedding, then you simply must have a La Gartier garter on hand. Slim, sparkling and modern, our garters make for the most beautiful addition to any bridal lingerie set that you might be considering. The best part? You can then wear your garter again on your wedding day or even your wedding night! To shop our entire collection, please click here:
Also, just in case you are equally taken with the lingerie that Jennifer used in the below images-- they belong to a company called Lola & August that will simply knock your socks off.
A huge thank you to Jennifer Williams of Jennifer Williams Boudoir for taking the time to capture our designs in such a flattering and sexy light! And another big thank you to the beauty wearing our garter in the below photos, Vannessa Young, for modeling our ivory pearl garter like an angel sent from heaven. You both make our company extremely happy to be in business of dressing brides-to-be during one of the sexiest holidays of the year-- Valentine's Day. These photos could not have come at a more appropriate time! Happy La Gartier everyone!

I recently designed a custom garter for one of their primary wedding planners, Samantha Farris, who took it upon herself to do an entire photoshoot curated around her gorgeous custom garter. And guess who she picked as her photographer? None other than the talented Jessica Claire of Jessica Claire Photography!! <(insert heart eyes emojo six times!!!))Why might you ask? Well, just take a look at the photos below for an explanation!! Can you believe how beautiful these are!?? When I first saw them, my jaw hit the floor.

Just another reason to say "I Do" wearing La Gartier and Jimmy Choo!!If you are interested in purchasing the "Vienna" garter for yourself or someone that you love, please click here to be directed to our online shop.
