Whenever I meet a bride-to-be who likes the color pink as well as unicorns, I know immediately that we are going to have a BALL designing her wedding garter set. This was exactly the case when I "e-met" La Gartier bride Kristina Baldwin, who told me that she wanted to book a semi-custom garter that included blush pink as well as some sort of unicorn motif. (See photos below!)
Kristina had chosen a stunning Hayley Paige gown for her wedding day on March 1st, 2019 and she wanted a unicorn symbol to represent not only the magical-atmosphere of her wedding day but also the iconic Hayley Paige brand. It was a PERFECT match as we have a silver unicorn charm within our semi-custom charm collection. Doesn't it look stunning underneath the bow on her french lace toss garter?!
Then, because Kristina chose blush pink as one of the primary colors of her wedding day, we picked out a pink embroidery thread for her initials and wedding date. See the inner embroidery below? This was such a personal, heirloom-appropriate detail to include within her wedding garter set!!
Lastly, because Kristina's gown included opals (she was wearing Hayley Paige's Reagan gown which is to-die-for. Seriously. Google it.) she picked the Athena garter as her main keepsake design. All in all, this semi-custom wedding garter set screams Christina, her personality, her love of all things girly and the utter magical-allure of her wedding day.
Interested in having a semi-custom garter set made for yourself or someone that you love? Then we have you covered! Currently, we are booked until June of 2019 for custom designs but as long as your wedding falls on or after July 1st of 2019, then we would LOVE to work with you!

Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Natalie Pack's Viszla-Inspired, Sparkle-Blasted Wedding Garter Set
If you have seen a Guess advertisement over the past 3 years, chances are that you have seen Natalie Pack's face. She is quickly becoming one of America's most-beloved supermodels, known for her work with not only Guess but also CK1, America's Next Top Model and more. But there are a few things about Natalie that her high-gloss, incredibly alluring images don't convey. And no-- I'm not talking about her diet and fitness regimen. I'm talking about her down-to-earth side..the side of her that's just like you and me: that is to say- the part of her that LOVES her dog. Seriously though, this girl loves her pooch more than the average dog-lover, which is saying A LOT if you are from a canine-centered family like me. (Or if you live in Colorado. No joke. The name of this state should be the dog-loving state.) 😂😂
If you follow Natalie on instagram, then you have most likely caught a glimpse of her beloved Viszla "Fig."
And if you haven't, then you must go immediately and check him out!! To say that he is handsome is a total understatement.😍
So, when Katherine Webb got in touch with me a few months ago about creating a custom garter set for Natalie (#BestiePoints💯), it was only natural that I immediately suggested adding some sort of canine-inspired element to Natalie's design. So what does that look like might you ask? How can you make canine chic and elegant? Well, if you have the help of a designer called Esquivel and Fees. That is, after much searching, Natalie and I found an incredible jewelry designer in Houston, Texas that hand-casts each sterling silver pendant that they make, ensuring that each pendant is unique and PERFECT. What did we order might you ask? Well, a sterling silver Vizsla pendant of course!!! Scroll through the images below to see how each detail of Natalie's garter set represents either her wedding, her unmistakable bridal style or her relationship with actor Aaron O'connell.
Can you believe the detail in that Vizsla-pendant?!?!! Talk about high-quality. This little baby was created by a shop in Houston, Texas called Esquivel and Fees and I honestly don't know why they aren't worldwide famous. That is how much I love them.
I am not sure if #CanineChic is a thing, but if it isn't, then it should be. Can I get an AMEN?
Her "something blue" is hidden on the inside of her garter via two embroidered patches: one for her wedding date and one for her and her fiance's initials.
The lace on the back band of Natalie's garters was selected based off of the lace on her gorgeous wedding gown. (I can't say the designer until after the wedding but I promise I'll be posting tons of pics!!)
Because everything looks better when it is placed inside of a La Gartier box.
And now for some almost-unbearably adorable pictures of Natalie and her four-legged bestie. 👆🏼👆🏼👇🏻👇🏻

Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier bride Becca Lenois' Greecian Opal Princess and Lace Bridal GarterEvery once and a greecian moon, I will have the opportunity to create a custom wedding garter design for a bride who doesn't even know she wants one. <insert tons of LOLS> This was DEFINITELY the case last month when I worked with La Gartier bride Rebecca Lenois, who was gifted a custom wedding garter by her good friend (and one of our beloved past clients" Jill Sullivan Pasparikas. Jill contacted me and told me that she wanted her good friend Rebecca to have the same custom experience as herself, so she booked Rebecca's custom spot over a year ago, ensuring that she would have her garter in time for her wedding. Two months ago, I had the honor of e-meeting Rebecca and learning all about her relationship, her wedding and her personal style. The custom design that ensued is hands down one of the most beautiful and unique Greek-inspired custom garters ever created. (Cue music from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding.) Wondering what made Rebecca's garter so gorgeous? Scroll down to see photos of her beautiful personalized garter!! And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Rebecca's beautiful custom garter design symbolizes an aspect of her relationship, her wedding day style, and what might possibly be one of 2018's classiest weddings.Interested in having a custom garter made for yourself? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your custom spot. Right now, we are completely booked until July of 2018 but as long as you are not getting married until August 1st of 2018 or sometime thereafter, then there is still time!!The pendant that we purchased for the center of Rebecca's garter is pretty much my favorite piece of jewelry in the world. It was a vintage gold and silver pendant with the greek key symbol around the edges.At the center of the pendant is the owl. In ancient Greece, the owl is a symbol and also the symbol of Goddess Athena.For her base, Rebecca selected our "Athena" garter not only due to the name but also because she loved the rhinestone and opal detailing within it. After looking at her gown and her other accessories, it was a no-brainer.For Rebecca's "something blue", we decided to have her wedding date as well as her initials sewn into the inside of her garter. Talk about a beautiful personalized detail, right?My favorite details? The lace on the back band of Rebecca's garter matched the lace on her gorgeous wedding gown. All the heart eyes for fine french lace.
