  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Tasha Tagliani Davis's Custom Bridal Garter Set Made Using Her Grandmother's Wedding Dress And Her Mother's Wedding Dress

    This incredible wedding garter set was made using the bride's mother's wedding gown as well as her grandmother's wedding gown. When Tasha Tagliani first contacted us, I was floored for two reasons: one, her request was just the sort of thing that we love doing and two, because she was an editor for Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine. I had long been a huge fan of Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine, so I welcomed this project with joy. After an initial phone consultation that went well over an hour, Tasha decided to ship us two very special gowns in order to have us transform them into her wedding garter set. You MUST SEE the creation video!!

    Tasha married the love of her life, Kaelan Davis, on June 26th, 2020 at The Tenth in Vail, Colorado. To say that her wedding was classy would be a total understatement. Here, above, you can see what Tasha's wedding garters look like from the front. We decided to use the Vienna garter as her keepsake and the Hayley garter as her second design, but then customize them by adding her mother's dress fabric and her grandmother's dress fabric. Keep scrolling to see the special custom detailing!

    The back band of Tasha's knock-out keepsake garter was made using the lace from her mother's dress. Specifically, what you are seeing here is the lace that was once apart of the sleeve of her mother's gown. My favorite part is all of the little ivory pearls that you see all over the lace. These are 100% heirloom and 100% deeply meaningful.

    If you look closely, you will see a dainty 14K gold butterfly pendant at the center of her Hayley garter. We decided to include this because butterflies are extremely special to Tasha and her mother. In fact, we also included a butterfly motif on all of Tasha's custom hankies, which we will show off in just a moment!

    To take the heirloom-integrity of this set from a ten to a solid fifteen, we also decided to add her wedding date and the first letter of her new last name (D for Davis) onto the inside of her garter in tiffany blue! Isn't that just the prettiest "something blue" detail that you have ever seen?!

    Above is a photo of just one of the custom wedding hankies that we made for Tasha. The base was made using her grandmother's dress fabric and the lace edging that you see was taken from her mother's wedding gown! We than embroidered an intricate blue butterfly onto each one. I still freeze when I look at these. They were so precious and they made for the best gifts for her family!

    My favorite photo is this one! Tasha's photographer managed to capture the moment when she gave her father his special La Gartier custom handkerchief. It is moments like these that keep us going!

    This photo was the very first photo that Tasha sent us after the wedding. I actually started crying. It was such an honor to know that that is how much she loved her wedding garters as well as her custom hankie set!
    Dear Tasha, if you are reading this: it has been such a pleasure to work with you. In addition, thank you so much for including La Gartier in some of Rocky Mountain Bride's blog posts and magazine features. It was such a blast to make these for you.

  • Personalized Wedding Garter Spotlight: A Custom Wedding Garter Made Using La Gartier Bride Allie Mallon's Mother's Dress Fabric

    Don't tell anyone, but we haven't blogged about our custom garter designs in almost a year. I am so embarrassed. 2021 was such a busy year for us, that we hardly had any time to sit down and write about our favorite custom designs that we produced between the months of January to December. However, today is a gorgeous (albeit cold) January day in 2022, and I figure it's better late than never. 
    Last January, we had the pleasure of meeting a bride named Allie Mallon, who asked us to create a garter for her using her mother's dress material. (Fun fact: her mother actually wanted her to wear her vintage dress on her
    wedding day, but Allie wasn't so hot on that idea. Instead, she compromised with her mother and told her that she would incorporate the lace from her gown into her wedding garter...and hire us to do it.)
    Interested to see what her mom's gown looked like? See the photo below to see Allie and her mother together. On the left is Allie wearing her mom's 1980s wedding gown.

    After an initial phone consultation, Allie was fast to ship us an entire box of fabric from her mother's wedding gown, which she expertly extracted herself! We then set to work transforming the lace from her mom's gown (as well as a little baggie of pearl embellishments) into a wedding garter set. Interested to see how beautifully it came out? Keep scrolling down!

    Do you see all of those tiny ivory pearls scattered across her toss garter? These pearls were taken from her mom's dress and carefully hand-sewn onto her toss garter. The sunset charm at the center was included to symbolize Allie's favorite relationship past time: watching the sunset with her fiance.

    A side view of Allie's custom wedding garters. Here, you can see the vintage heirloom lace from her mother's gown that we used to create the back band for her keepsake garter. There is just something about high-end lace, isn't there? It lends the whole design an element of expensiveness that you just can't get with lower-end laces.

    This wedding garter set was so fun to make for Allie. Sometimes, it blows my mind to be trusted with such love-filled, precious materials like her mom's dress. Dear Allie, from me to you: thank you for trusting us with such a monumental project. I will literally never forget the romance of this project.

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: AbbyJo Oliver's Spice Girls Wedding Garter Set

    I can honestly say that I will never look at Spice Girls the same again. Seriously, after working on this special custom garter, the Spice Girls will forever be immortalized in my heart as something extra special. Please allow me to explain....
    Last year, we had the pleasure of meeting a bride named AbbyJo Luquette at a trunk show at AnnaBe Bridal in Denver, Colorado who had the most energetic, bubbly disposition. On that day, she told me that she was a huge Spice Girls fan...and that some of her wedding day decor was going to be inspired by the Spice Girls. At first, I was skeptical because I couldn't envision a high-end, ultra-classy way to work Spice Girls insignia into a wedding day, but as time went on, I slowly started to see her vision come to life via instagram...and I was convinced. Fast forward six months later, and AbbyJo reached out to us via email to ask us to create a custom Spice Girls themed wedding garter set for her using not only elements of the British flag, but also lace from her mother's wedding gown.

    When AbbyJo first reached out to us, I knew only one thing for sure: the only way we were going to bring this beautiful Spice Girls garter set to life is if we kept the entire design SUPER CLASSY and HIGH-END. I had spent time looking online at other Spice Girls wedding accessories, and most of them were super cheesy in my opinion. (And when I say "most" of them, I mean all of them.)  When AbbyJo offered to ship me lace from her mother's wedding dress, that is the moment that I knew we had a true heirloom-worthy project in front of us.  I was over-the-moon excited with inspiration! 
    custom wedding garter spice girls
    We ended up creating a total of three custom garters for AbbyJo: one for her to keep, one for her to wear during her bachelorette party in Vegas and an extra one for her to toss. In addition, we created a set of Spice-Girls-inspired wedding hankies for her too. Each one was so special. I am literally tearing up just thinking about this beautiful project!

    For her keepsake garter, we used our beloved Vienna garter (from our collection) as the base. Then, we hand-crafted a back band for her garter using lace from her mother's wedding dress. For her toss, we used a custom British flag grosgrain ribbon to symbolize AbbyJo's love of the Spice Girls.

    One of my favorite details about AbbyJo's set was that the inside ribbon of her keepsake garter featured the same British flag ribbon that we used on her toss garter. It was a very special, hidden detail that both AbbyJo and myself were obsessed with.
