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!The Florentine garter as worn by Carly Grace of Carly Grace Yoga. If you love this garter as much as we do, you can click here to see it in our shop. It's warm. It's romantic. It's sparkly. It's everything you want on your wedding day.The lingerie that Carly wears here is from an unbelievable company based in Canada called Lola and August. Their quality is unbelievable! If you are looking for amazing bridal lingerie, then you must check them out!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.Here, Carly wears the Florentine garter with a set of lingerie from....wait for it...wait for it.. Victoria's Secret. *mind blown"Never underestimate the power of a plain white furry rug in any bridal photos EVER.super cute x 10,000, right?All white everything.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.

We are very proud to annouce that The Florentine garter is finally here! As most of you know, gold and rose gold are all the rage at the moment. For the past few months, we have been receiving countless requests for a garter design that incorporates gold and rose gold, as well as sparkle galore! It has taken a considerable amount of time, but we are very excited to announce the arrival of The Florentine garter, which just might be the PRETTIEST wedding garter in the world!!The Florentine garter features a sparkling gold band in the form of beautiful linking florets, each with its own subtle rose gold detailing and sprinkling of ivory pearls. If you are a bride who is as rose-gold obsessed as we are, then this is THE garter for you!! It is not only beautiful, but also elegant, luxurious and fit for only the most glamourous of brides.Below are just a few photos of it from our most recent photoshoot with Kelly Lane Photography and Holly Trizzino Photography. (I died when I first laid eyes of these photos over the weekend. I honestly can't choose which is my favorite! Eeek!)If you are as in love with this garter as we are, then please click here to be directed to its listing in our shop! Happy La Gartier everyone!

It's not every day that we get to shoot with one of the best boudoir photographers in the South. Even more seldom is the chance to hire one of America's most admired yogis as our main model. That's what happened last month when we embarked on a drop dead gorgeous photoshoot with Holly Trizzino Photography, featuring the one and only Carly Grace Hinchman herself. Carly is best known around Atlanta (and for that matter, the South in general) as the "Yoga Barbie" but last month she transformed into a blushing bride-to-be for one day when Holly Trizzino photographed her wearing our beautiful garters. Holly Trizzino is a phenomenal local boudoir photographer who has more talent than she knows what to do with!! (See the pictures below for proof!) Her images of Carly Grace wearing the Vienna garter and the Hayley garter came out beautifully!
Just in case you are wondering where you can purchase these lovely bridal rompers and robes, they belong to the Love Ophelia bridal collection. Where is the sexy lacy bridal lingerie from, you might ask? Look no further than the For Love and Lemons "Skivvies" collection.
A huge thank you for Holly Trizzino for taking the time to capture our designs in such a flattering light! And another big thank you to Carly Grace of Thunderbolt Power Yoga for offering to model for our sparkling company! You both make our company heart shine brighter than a pile of diamonds! Happy La Gartier everyone!
