Do you love football? Then you are going to adore this custom garter design that we recently made for La Gartier bride Erica Ellington! When Erica first contacted us, she was living in Houston, Texas with her fiance Bruce Ellington. Bruce was playing for the Texans at the time..and when Erica reached out to us, she had a request that sent chills down my spine. SHE WANTED TO SEND US ONE OF HIS NFL JERSEYS TO TRANSFORM INTO HER WEDDING GARTER.(I almost put that sentence in bold but didn't want to be dramatic.)But wait--- how exciting, right? To turn your fiance's authentic NFL jersey into her wedidng garter? I just geek out so much on things like this. Not only did the final product reflect who she was as a person, but it also was a microcosm of who he was as a person.Interested to see more of this ultra-glamourous NFL personalized garter set? Keep scrolling down!At the front of her toss garter, Erica and I decided to have a custom gold "Ellington" pendant made by a custom jeweler in Houston, Texas. While it's true that both Erica and I loved the NFL details, we actually loved this special gold pendant just as much. And do you see that little glimpse of blue? That is her wedding date embroidered onto the inside of her keepsake garter! Talk about a special, hidden detail, right?! I loved how subtle and secretive this little element of her design was.I swoon with pride when I see the backside of Erica's incredible garter set! Do you see that little NFL decal? That was cut, by me, directly from his NFL Texans jersey. It is 100% authentic.The combination of gold and pearls within Erica's personalized wedding garter set still makes me stop and stare.Just one more and I'll stop. Promise.This personalized wedding garter set was epic to say the least. It's funny....because at the time that Erica and I were making it, I love it but it wasn't until months later that I realized we had made REAL MAGIC together. Even as I write this blog, I am having a hard time keeping the photo count down. Dear Erica, if you are reading this, I want you to know that I will always think of you as one of the most supportive NFL brides we have ever worked with. Watching your journey with Bruce brings so much joy to my heart.

Not all garters are created equal. I realize that, as the spokeswoman for my own business, I should tell you that everyone of our designs are equally beautiful. However, this just isn't true. There are certain wedding garter designs (especially personalized garter designs!) that knock it so far out of the park, that I just can't help but brag about them. One of these designs came last month, when I created La Gartier bride Kama Holtzman's wedding garter set. Kama first contacted me with the hope that I could create a french lace and blue satin garter with heirloom potential for her February 2018 wedding, however once we got started on her design, it took on a life of its own and bloomed into an design worthy of the word MASTERPIECE. Below are photos of all three of Kama's garters: one to keep, one to pass down and one to throw. Underneath each photo is a little bit of written information about each garter, so make sure to read those little babies too!! (And keep in mind that if you are interested in a personalized garter of your own, then we would LOVE to work with you!! Simply email email@example.com or use the contact form by clicking here.)
Kama's garter were made using the prettiest cornflower blue satin as the base. For her keepsake, we decided to "overlay" this satin with an exquisite (and expensive) ivory french lace. Why? Because nothing says heirloom quite like imported french lace. (To me anyway. But Kama agrees, so that makes two.)
Kama's toss garter might just be the cutest toss garter in the history of man. At the center, just under the bow, is a tiny engraved bar pendant that says "You're Next." That way, when one of the single men at Kama's wedding catches the garter, they will have no doubts regarding its significance. When Kama suggested that we include the "You're Next" saying, my jaw almost hit the floor. If there were such a thing as a "cute idea trophy," then I would award one to Kama with ACDC playing.
On the inside of Kama's keepsake garter, we included her wedding date PLUS her & her fiance's initials. When I think of Kama passing this garter down to her daughter someday, I tear up at the idea that Kama's "something blue" will someday be her daughter's "something blue" (cue the tears)
Kama's original toss garter (which she will never actually toss) was a custom version of our blue pearl garter. But take a look at what we added along the back to personalized it!
Isn't it amazing? Along the back of Kama's blue pearl toss garter, we included her wedding hashtag #kamjam2018!! Honestly, how did we live before the perfect adorableness of wedding hashtags?!
Another, close up photo of the wedding hashtag embroidery detail along the back of Kama's blue pearl garter. I can't think of a more modern and sweet personalized detail than the inclusion of her wedding hashtag! Don't you agree?Kama, I can't wait to see photos of your gorgeous garters with your unbelievably beautiful wedding gown on your wedding day! (Don't worry, my lips are sealed!) Creating this personalized wedding garter set for you has been nothing short of a dream!SIDE NOTE: if you love these photos as much as we do and would like to speak with someone about having a custom garter made for yourself or someone whom you love, then please feel free to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org OR you can use the contact form by clicking here.
