When it comes to wedding traditions you can pick and choose those that mean the most to you – many couples no longer want to wait for the ceremony to see their beloved so choose to have a ‘first look’, nor does every bride wish to toss her beautiful bouquet. And the same with the classic garter! Some see it as an antiquated tradition with no place in modern weddings, whilst others see it as an accessory that can be saved, cherished, and passed down through generations. (While also getting a few ultra-gorgeous photos on their wedding day!)If you’re not so sure whether to garter or not to garter, read on to learn the history behind the tradition and to see 5 gorgeous garters from our collection that may just help you decide!I am not even going to lie to you all. I am not a huge fan of the garter toss myself. However, I am a huge fan of wearing gorgeous accessories who express who I am as a person.....And when it comes to your wedding day, you deserve nothing but the BEST. The garter that you see above is called The Galia...and it is a design that would be perfect if you are looking to pass an heirloom bridal item down to your daughter one day. Beyond just that, it makes for unbelievably gorgeous getting ready photos (think you. your bridal robe. your garter. BOOM.)Click the photo above to see more of this incredible wedding garter full of what I like to call heirloom integrity.Slim and floral-centered, our Daphne garter is a radical departure from what you usually think of when you think of a wedding garter. The best part? There are tiny swarovski crystals nestled in between the tiny white flowers on this garter, making for just the right touch of sparkle. Click on the photo above to see more of our brand new Daphne garter!To me, the garter toss tradition pales in comparison to getting photos like these. And do you know what is SO WONDERFUL? You have the opportunity to use your garter for photographs on so many different occasions! Here are just a few, simply because I love proving a good point:~your pre-wedding boudoir shoot~your getting ready pictures on the day-of~your bachelorette party night~your rehearsal dinner outfit (if you wear a dress with a slit!)~your wedding night (but promise us that you will wear all white/ivory lingerie. Make is sexy. But make it bridal.)~Your first anniversary (preferably at night, once you get home.)~Valentine's DayOne of my favorite features of the wedding garter is that it is the only accessory that you will wear on your wedding day that goes underneath your gown. This means that you can really have fun with it. It is THE accessory that can personify WHO you are as a person, without worrying about whether or not it perfectly compliments everything else within your wedding day look (from the outside!)Above is a perfect example of a garter that has a TON of personality. It is called the Oh-So-L.A. garter and it is truly unlike anything on the planet. The only thing we ask is that you keep it and pass it on to your daughter one day.

I am not going to lie.For the bride who loves sparkle, there is no other company like La Gartier. We basically worship sparkle around here and have subsequently built an entire brand around it. Seriously. You should see our studio. When you walk inside, everything glitters from the ceiling to the floor...and when golden hour sets in, it is everything we can do to not simply drop whatever project we are working on and start taking videos of JUST.EVERYTHING.If you are a bride-to-be who is looking for an ultra-special, sparkling wedding garter made using swarovski crystals, then you have come to the right place.Keep scrolling to catch a glimpse of our top five most popular wedding garters made with swarovski crystals!Created using swarovski crystals and a semi-transparent illusion midline, this garter features jewels set in a symbolic floral pattern along the bottom and top perimeter, making for a stunning organic shape. The back half of this garter is made of a soft light elastic with a ruffled organza overlay. If you look closely at the illusion midline of the garter, you will see a honeycomb crosshatched pattern, specifically made to mimic the iconic design elements found within the gown of Galia Lahav and Berta. 💗✨ Click the photo above to see more of this beautiful design!This garter MADE US what we are. If you are a bride-to-be who is known for her glamour, her unique style and her originality...then look no farther. This is the garter for YOU. Always first to the trend, this bride is someone who consistently catches others off guard with her fresh, cutting-edge sense of fashion. 🧵 In short, she does not wait for others to go first before trying something new. If you are a bride who wants nothing less than the best for your wedding day, then this garter belongs to you. ✨ It 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/actress Katherine Webb and The Bachelor's Nikki Ferrell. 🌹Created as a sister garter to our ever beloved Vienna, the Athena garter features both clear swarovski crystals AND opal stones to create just a touch of something blue.

The Glass Slipper garter was designed for the bride who absolutely adores Cinderella. 🏰
Every detail of this garter was inspired by the bride who adores animals and is well-known for her compassionate nature. More likely than not, this bride is not a very loud person. In fact, she might be one of the quietest people at a party, but she is known for carrying herself with a grace that is unparalleled. 💅🏻 Anyone who knows this bride is well aware of the fact that she believes deeply in acts of service, whether it be volunteering to help abandoned animals or assisting the elderly who have become too old to be able to care for themselves anymore. 💗 🧵
The Ever After Garter was created for the bride who believes in happily ever after. Known for her undying belief in true love, this bride is the type of girl who has refused to let past experiences shut down her sparkle or stop her belief in living with an open heart & an undying romantic outlook on life. No matter what circumstances have been thrown her way, she has remained hopeful that she will one day meet her soulmate. (ie: prince charming.) 👑

Gratitude moment!!! Last month, we met an incredible photographer named Livia Lillanueva of Less Is More Boudoir Photography who did an entire styled shoot using our designs!!!💗⭐️💗⭐️ The looks that she put together with our designs are to-die-for!! 💗⭐️⭐️ Ladies, if you are looking for some big boudoir outfit ideas, then keep scrolling!
Can someone say bridal robe gorgeousness? Livia of Less Is More Boudoir owns an entire collection of these robes in multiple colors and we are SWOONING! The garter that you see on this model's leg is a brand new design that we will be releasing this Cyber Monday- November 29th, 2021.
Here is another angle of her garters and this jaw-dropping bridal robe. I have two huge suggestions for you if you are planning on doing a bridal boudoir shoot: one, make sure you have a garter and make sure you have a bridal robe that speaks volumes!
Here, the model wears our ever-beloved Coco Pearl garter plus the exact same gorgeous robe (but in blush pink this time!)
For a more traditional look, consider pairing a lace bridal robe with our Venus Pearl garter. This garter is by far our best-selling design in our collection, featuring a mixture of pearls, sparkle, and celestial symbolism.
Here is one more look at what a lace bridal robe looks like when paired with our ultra-gorgeous Venus Pearl garter. (Proving once again that bridal robes + La Gartier go together like Jenny & Forrest.)
We saved the best for last! When looking for a show-stopping, where-did-you-get-that-wedding garter design, look no farther than our Vienna garter, photographed like a pro by Less Is More Boudoir Photography!

This garter was designed for the fashion-forward bride. Never afraid to take risks, this bride is very-well-known for being a trendsetter. ⛓ She adores all things edgy and original, whether it be in accessories, film, or music. 🎶 More likely than not, this bride adores the style of Hailey Bieber, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, and Gwen Stefani. Rule breaker? Check and check. 🖤This bride somehow puts a daring and fresh twist on just about everything she does. Some describe her as a trail-blazer. Others describe her as reckless. To her, living life with no regrets and a great sense of living life to the fullest are the two most important things in the world. 💗 More likely than not, this bride will be wearing a non-traditional gown on her wedding day. (Please note: if you are a bride who is distinctly traditional in style, then this is not the garter for you.) 🙅🏼♀️

Last month, I had the pleasure of working with a talented photographer here in the Atlanta area named Kaye Snyder of Portraits by Kaye.

To anyone reading this: if you live in the Atlanta area and are in need of some new professional content for your business, I highly recommend Kaye Snyder of Portraits by Kaye! She and her husband recently built a high-functioning studio that is camera and video ready. Kaye, thank you so much for all of your professional talents. I am forever grateful!Below are just a few photos that Kaye took of our studio environment, plus a few fun headshots, just two weeks ago. THANK YOU KAYE SNYDER!!
