    Ok. So you want a "something blue" on your wedding day, but you are imagining something super subtle and elegant, right? Well, you have come to the perfect place! When it comes to light blue, semi-ethereal, barely there bridal garter designs, our garters are hands-down the best on the market. And while I realize that I sound like a huge braggart right now, the truth is....well, it really is #FACTS. 
    I have spent countless hours googling phrases such as "light blue wedding garters" and "garters with a hint of blue" and there really isn't anything else out there that compares to the craftsmanship, the quality, and the pure artfulness that we put into our pieces. 
    If you are looking for an heirloom-worthy "something blue" wedding garter, then here are five our our most popular styles, listed in order of popularity!

    1. The Arendelle Garter

    This garter is made out of a solid sparkling opalescent light blue jeweled-centerpiece. Alluring opalescent round-cut stones, marquis-cut stones, emerald-cut stones, and round-cut stones blend together to create a mesmerizing combination. (Fun fact: the marquis-cut stones along the top and bottom edge of the centerpiece are meant to mimic the shape of icicles!) ❄️

    If you look closely on the left and right side of this design, you will see two iridescent flowers blooming from the soft velvet blue band. These flowers represent the meeting of two souls at just the right moment, in just the right place. 🔮

    To make this design even more special, each design is marked with a number on the inside using metallic silver embroidery. This number indicates number it is within this rare limited-edition series.  (Click here to access the listing in our shop.)  ✨

    2. The Ever After Garter

    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.) 👑

    And in this belief, she has been right. To her, the three most important qualities in her life-long-romeo are honesty, loyatly and devotion. More likely than not, she will be saying "I Do" in a gown that will stop people in their tracks upon seeing it. When asked if she likes sparkle, she will most likely respond: "Extra please." 💅🏻

     The Ever After garter is, well, just impressive. This garter is pure luxury, mixed with tiny dusty blue acrylic 3-D flowers that are truly unlike anything you have ever seen. Worried that there isn't enough blue? We have great news for you! Embroidered on the inside of this garter is a secret message. It says "Happily Ever After" in dusty blue embroidery thread, making for two gorgeous blue elements within one celeb-worthy design! Interested to see the inscription on the inside?

    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 Eight Best Bridal Shower Gifts For The Bride in 2022

    I read a statistic recently that said 2022's wedding season is going to be bigger than anything that America has seen since 1984. To be specific, it reported that more weddings will be happening in the United States in 2022 than any other year since 1984. And you know what? I believe it. Why?

  • New! The Infinity Crystal Sparkle Wedding Garter

    We've waited for years to introduce this gorgeous new garter to the collection. Why? We wanted it to be perfect! Ever since 2017, we have wanted to create a garter that encapsulates never-ending love - the type of love that never dies no matter what the circumstances. Today, we are thrilled to announce that she is finally here! Ladies and gentleman, may we present to you the Infinity wedding garter! 
    infinity crystal sparkle wedding garter
    When aiming to find a truly unique, sparkling wedding garter design, look no farther than the Infinity garter. Set within a sparkling swarovski crystal front band, two separate bands intertwine together in a braid-like motif, creating a never-ending infinity silhouette. Each tiny rhinestone was set at a different angle on purpose, ensuring that each one will hit the light just right, creating  max ten level sparkle from any angle.  ☪️ 
    infinity crystal sparkle wedding garter

    The best part? The Infinity garter is extremely slim and non-obstrusive, making it the perfect garter choice if you are looking for something subtle and dainty. 

    Other details to note: this garter is extremely light-weight. We created it this way on purpose so as to ensure that you will not feel it at all as you walk with love and pride.  

    infinity crystal sparkle wedding garter

    As her name suggests, the Infinity garter was made for the bride who believes that her love is limitless. To be specific, she was created for the bride who believes that the love she shares with her partner is never-ending, not just in its size but also in it's life span. Fun fact: the two separate braids of sparkle represent two separate people (you + your loved one) coming together and becoming one complete entity. As you can see in the photos above, the top braided piece supports the bottom one, and the bottom one supports the top one. Without support from either of these two separate entities, the design couldn't viably exist.  Suffice to say, this garter belongs to the bride who passionately believes in the life blood of her relationship as a two-way street.

  • New! Introducing the Atlantis Garter

    Where do we start?? Our new Atlantis garter is so unique, that we need at least a paragraph to describe its deeply sacred components! Firstly, a little back story: When creating this garter, we knew right away that we wanted to create the world's prettiest ocean-inspired wedding garter...one that was unparalleled in terms of craftsmanship and luxury. 
    beach boho wedding garter
    As you can see in the photos above, the front band is comprised of exactly ten ivory seashells. 🐚
    Weaving through the midline of the garter, above and below the seashells, is a jeweled milky way of tiny ivory pearls, gleaming like eternal moons against the organic texture of the seashells.  🌊 The best part? For a luxurious sparkle effect, we added 35 swarovski crystal rhinestones throughout the midline in both a pear-shape and also a round-cut shape, meant to symbolize the glittering surface of the ocean at sunset. 🌅
     
    beach boho garter
    Other details to note: this garter is extremely light-weight. We created it this way on purpose so as to ensure that you will not feel this garter at all as you walk with it on.  Another huge plus of this garter? The seashells are all-natural and organic, making for the perfect choice if you are someone who adores all things Boho.
    boho beach garter
    As her name suggests, the Atlantis garter was created for the most sensitive, deep, and intuitive of brides.  🔮 As most of you know, the ocean is known for being vast and mysterious, which is why it comes as no surprise that it has become such an iconic symbol for things that are all-encompassing, powerful, and ancient.  Suffice to say, this garter was made for the bride who is known for her mysterious and oftentimes borderline psychic tendencies. (Fun fact: the seashell is a widely known symbol for the unconscious and is associated with emotions. No- seriously- google it.)  👰‍♀️ 🔮
    beach boho wedding garter

    This garter belongs to the bride who knows certain things before anyone does, simply because of her gut. She is the epitome of intuition, and divine feminine energy, but...just like the ocean, she is continually shifting and changing shape. For this reason, she can be hard to pin down. 

    The chances that she is a water sign like Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer are high. The chances that she will be getting married on the beach are even higher. ♓️

    If you are someone who appreciate organic motifs (like seashells) but who also likes opulent, luxurious things, then the Atlantis garter is your spirit garter.

     It should also be noted that this garter was created with heirloom-integrity in mind. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦   That is to say, this gorgeous garter was made to be cherished and passed down through generations after the wedding day. (But we won't be salty if you decide to toss it!) 🤣

  • What Is The Purpose Of The Wedding Garter? Do I Really Have To?

    Let me guess. You are on the fence about the wedding garter. When it comes to all of those icky photos that you've seen with the groom's hands (or, sometimes, entire head) up his darling bride's skirt with loved ones watching, you are asking yourself: "What is the point of this? Do I really want to do this?" 
    And I have an answer for you: YES. Actually, yes you do. Crazy, right? Allow me to explain:
    While it's true that the wedding garter might seem to be a superfluous accessory, let me also point out that there are quite a few other things in life that are absolutely gorgeous that don't really serve a practical purpose. Case in point: your veil. Case in point: chandeliers. Case in point: false eyelashes.
    Does this make them any less beautiful and desirable? Absolutely not. In fact, I would go so far as to argue that without them, life itself wouldn't be as fun! 
    BUT, wait. Beyond the garters needless beauty, there are actually are a few purposes that you might be interested in. In fact, for the sake of clarity, I am going to list FIVE of them below in order of relevance.
    (Side note: all of these opinions are mine...and I have been designing custom wedding garters for ten years...so if you want to call be biased, then that's fair--  call me biased. But still --  hear me out.)
    what is the point of a wedding garter?
    1. Wedding Garters Make For An Ultra-Meaningful "Details" Accessory. That is to say, they will take your "wedding details" photos from a ten to a FANTASTIC FIFTEEN in no time. Need proof? Just check out the photo above!
    wedding garter toss
    2. The Wedding Garter is the Ultimate Heirloom Accessory
    When it comes to accessories that you are going to cherish and potentially past down through generations, there is nothing so perfect as your wedding garter. Your veil is a close second, but the garter reins supreme. Tons of our brides purchase a garter from us with the intention of showcasing it for years to come in a glass box in their home, and then passing it down to their future daughter or loved one. And honestly- it makes perfect sense. Your garter (if they are ours) are a tiny, perfect expression of your personality and the essence of your wedding day style. The chances that it will fit a future loved one are high due to the fact that wedding garters are a one-size-fits-most accessory. When it comes to the question of tossing your garter or not tossing your garter, I am completely neutral. However, when it comes to the question of having a garter that you can have as a gorgeous heirloom that you can pass down through generations, I am a passionate YES GIRL.

    3. The Wedding Garter is a Must-Have For Your Getting Ready Photos
    Ok, so have you ever seen a picture of a bride getting ready with a wedding garter on??? It's pure beauty. The addition of a wedding garter completely glamorizes your getting-ready-outfit! I know this for a fact because I have seen so many of our brides send us pictures after their wedding day. There is just something so Beyonce-worthy about a bride wearing her garter as she sits crossed legged, getting her make up done, her hair up in curlers or whatever it may be. I swear, it's almost like the garter makes our brides look more like a Victoria's Secret Angel as they get ready, even if the room is a total mess behind them. (Case in point: the gorgeous photo at the top of this blog! This is Manuela Arbelaez, one of the models on The Price Is Right, wearing her custom La Gartier garter while she is getting ready for her wedding! I mean, can someone say beautiful?!  Also, check out the photo below of The Bachelor's Nikki Ferrell wearing her opalescent Athena garter as she sits pretty, preparing for her wedding ceremony!

    4. The Garter Toss
    If you want to do this, then do it. If you don't, then I don't care. Apologies if I sound crass here, it's just that this is an issue that has been plaguing the existence of wedding garters for year. From my perspective, the garter toss has roughly 10% bearing upon the value of a wedding garter overall, so I am not going to pay too much lip service to this one. The only thing I can say is this: if you decided to do the garter toss, please please please wear an incredible garter. That's all I ask. The best part? We have an entire collection of ultra-cute, bespoke wedding garters for you to choose from. Interested to find the garter that is right for you and your budget? Click here to access our shop. (Side note: the garter that you see in the photo above is called the Aurora. And yes-- that is Kandi Burruss from the Real Housewives of Atlanta.)

    5. The Wedding Garter Can Be Used As A Baby Headband After Your Wedding
    In recent years, our clients have started to re-purpose their wedding garters as baby headbands. (Mic Drop) I mean, can someone say genius?! The photo above was featured by People Magazine after one of our past beloved clients, Sabrina Bryan of The Cheetah Girls, had a precious baby girl named Comillia Monroe. To this day, we treasure this photo. Truth fast: we have dozens and dozens of these photos from our clients that are equally heart-warming. I wish I could post all of them here, but I know you are eager to get to the fourth reason wedding garters are incredible beyond just the garter toss. Let's take a look at the next one below!

    6. The Wedding Garter Is A Perfect Addition To Your Pre-Wedding Bridal Boudoir Shoot

Here, blogger Harrison Sapp wears our iconic Florentine garter along with a For Love And Lemons lingerie set that people search the world for on Poshmark. I repeat: there are so many other reasons you want a wedding garter beyond JUST the garter toss. I mean, how sexy is this photo?!
