  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Sydney Mann's Tiffany Blue Homecoming Dress Garter

    I try not to play favorites when it comes to our custom wedding garter designs, but there is no denying that there was one very special Tiffany blue garter design that sticks out like a gorgeous gem from 2018. Actually- let me back track a little and explain: Every once and awhile, I will have the opportunity to design a garter for a bride who has known her soon-to-be-hubby since high school or, better yet, has been dating her soon-to-be-hubby since high school. <insert happy squeal sound from deep down. Seriously. So romantic.> 
     
     This was DEFINITELY the case a few months ago when I worked with La Gartier bride Sydney Mann, who sent me her homecoming dress as well as pieces of her prom queen sash in order to create a custom wedding garter for her December 15th, 2018 wedding. To say that this was a unique and BEAUTIFUL project would be an absolute understatement. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a creation process filled with iridescent jewels, the brightest tiffany blue tulle you have ever seen and more sparkly embellishment possibilities than I have ever known what to do with. 
     Wondering what made Sydney's garters so gorgeous? Scroll down to see photos of her beautiful personalized garter!! (not to mention her custom hankies!)
     
    And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Sydney's beautiful custom garter design symbolizes an aspect of her relationship, her wedding day style, and what might possibly be one of 2018's most stylish weddings.
    Interested in having a custom garter made for yourself? Please email us at info@lagartier.com to book your custom spot. Right now, we are completely booked until May of 2019 but as long as you are not getting married until after June 1st of 2019, then there is still time!!

    The pear shaped pendant at the center of the tiffany blue toss garter was chosen to match the shape of Sydney's wedding ring.
    All of the tulle and iridescent gems on Sydney's toss garter were taken from her homecoming dress-- the very say homecoming dress that her now husband picked her up in during high school!

    At the last minute, Sydney and I decided to create a simple wedding handkerchief for her wedding using one of the gem's from her homecoming dress and custom embroidery. So happy we did! It looked ah-mazing in photos!

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Melanie Smith's Rose Gold and Air Force-Inspired Wedding Garter Set

    Just finished: La Gartier bride Melanie Smith's custom Air Force Wings & Rose Gold sparkle wedding garter set. Oh, did I mention black striped seersucker too? That too. This garter set was so incredible on so many different levels. I barely know where to begin. Here is the story behind what is possibly the prettiest Air Force-inspired wedding garter set EVER created: the wings that you see on Melanie's toss garter (that she will of course never actually toss!) were taken from her fiance Matt's actual Air Force uniform. (His wings protecting her as she walks down the aisle? I die.) Then, because Melanie's engagement ring is a stop-the-show-rose-gold-stunner, we decided to create her keepsake using a sparkling rose gold jeweled front piece, with a 3-D floral back band to compliment the floral-detailing on her gown. (I would tell you the name and designer of her gown, but then I might have to kill you.)
     My favorite part? For her "something blue" we included the latitude and longitude coordinates of her wedding venue in NOLA via navy blue embroidery. (Another nod to both Melanie's fiance's Air Force roots) ✈️✈️
    Lastly, to bring in a touch of Melanie's personal style (I did some creeping on her Instagram. Sorry, not sorry) we decided to use a black metallic sparkle seersucker fabric for the base of her toss garter. All in all, this set is a gem of originality. Melanie- I am bragging shamelessly for us both when I say that I am fairly certain that we just made the prettiest (and most preppy!) Air Force-inspired wedding garters to ever grace this great land of liberty. Working on this love-infused project with you fills me with pride for not only this beautiful garter set we made together, but also our gorgeous country in all its sparkling strength.
    Below are detailed photos of Melanie's unbelievably special wedding garter set! If you love this set as much as we do, then read the captions below each photo to learn more about the details that make this design so meaningful!! Interested in a custom garter set of your own??

    The rose gold detailing on the front of Melanie's keepsake garter matches her unbelievably pretty rose gold-set diamond engagement ring.

    I know that is is hard to tell in this photo- but the latitude and longitude coordinates that we included on the inside of Melanie's keepsake garter were done in a deep navy blue, thereby allowing Melanie to check off her "something blue" in a unique and totally original way. These coordinates correspond to her wedding venue in NOLA. Can someone say meaningful?!?

    The wings on Melanie's toss garter are real. They were taken by Melanie (on the sly...while her fiance wasn't looking) and mailed to our studios here in Atlanta. I literally tear up at the thought of Melanie's daughter wearing this garter down the aisle in 20 or 30 years, protected by her father's wings and her mother's love.

    The seersucker that we used on her toss garter was such a delight to work with! In fact, it has given us an idea for our winter limited edition garter that we have a feeling you all are going to love! Stay tuned!

  • Something Cornflower Blue: La Gartier bride Kama Holtzman's Personalized Wedding Garter Set

    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 info@lagartier.com or use the contact form by clicking here.) 

    personalized wedding garter

    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.)

    personalized wedding garter

    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.

    personalized wedding garter

    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)

    personalized wedding garter

    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!

  • A Vintage Locket & Opal Wedding Garter For La Gartier bride Victoria Henderson

    As June comes to a close, so does all of our June customizations. This month, I worked with three different brides to create 3 completely unique wedding garters sets. While I don't usually play favorites, I have to say that June's "winning" custom garter design is La Gartier bride Victoria Henderson's vintage locket and opal garter set. (see photos  and captions below!) 
    When Victoria contacted us last March to book her custom garter, she told me that she wanted something that matched her gown as well as the beading on her sash. I agreed to take on her customization immediately, expecting it to turn out just like her gown.......... but her garters ended up being SO MUCH MORE!! Here are just a few photos of Victoria's garter set along with some written info about my favorite designs elements: 

    vintage locket wedding garter

    The rose gold locket at the center of her toss is an original antique that Victoria and I stumbled across on Etsy. We just about died when we found this one because "M" is the first initial of her fiancé' name: Montana. We weren't even looking for an engraved locket, let alone one engraved with an "M"....but it's my personal opinion that this BEAUTY found its way to us for the creation of her garters. Meant to be? Yes, yes and yes!

    vintage locket wedding garter

    The pink velvet ribbon on her toss garter was chosen to match her bridesmaids dresses as well as the slight blush pink tone of her Enzoani bridal gown. Also, the opal and rhinestone beading on her keepsake matches the beading on her sash, but not so matchy matchy that it's obnoxious.

    something blue embroidered garter

    Her wedding date and initials are embroidered on the inside of her garter in navy blue to match her groomsmens tuxes. (This means that Victoria has not only one but two "something blues" for her wedding day!)
    pink velvet toss garter
    Because Victoria didn't want to toss her vintage "M" locket garter, we created this amazing "G" inspired toss for her. That way, she could keep the vintage locket design and still do the garter toss. (G is the first letter of her new last name! So appropriate, right?!)

    The only thing not pictured here is all of the beautiful custom packaging that we created when we packed up her garters to be shipped!!  Also not pictured here is the look on her daughter's face 30 years from now when Victoria gives her one or both of these garters for her very own wedding day!! <insert happy tears emoji>
    Victoria, I can't wait to hear about what you decide to put into the locket. Knowing how much you love florals and greenery, I have a feeling it will be something organic from your wedding day but anything you decide will most likely be beyond gorgeous!
