  • 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? Because just about every single person that I know has a wedding invitation sitting on their kitchen counter or tacked to the fridge at this very moment, which means it's time for all of us to get savvy about wedding gifts. 
    If you are reading this and you want an idea (or four) regarding what to get for your best bride friend, then below are five fantastic (and affordable) gift ideas for the bride right now.
    Let's start with the most affordable and then work our way up, shall we?
    5 best gifts for bride in 2022
    1. Silk and Willow Wedding Vow Books with Gold Foil Press
    When it comes to vow books, there are a ton of options. Yes, it's true that you can buy a set for $15 from Etsy that are pretty enough, but there is just something so romantic about a hard cover, appropriately binded book, isn't there? When it comes to vow books, I am so in love with these darling gold-foil pressed beauties! They are from a company called Silk and Willow and cost only $39.50. Interested to see more of them?

    2. The Mrs. Box "The Margaery Classic Velvet Ring Box"
    Ok, so this one is a no brainer. These little ring boxes from The Mrs. Box have been a beloved, go-to wedding gift for years now. While there are quite a few look-alike velvet ring boxes on the scene right now, no one can replicate the quaility of these gorgeous rings boxes from The Mrs. Box. No sure what color to get her? I recommend sticking with ivory or white in order to ensure that it will compliment all of her other wedding day details. Love what you are hearing and want to learn more?

    3. The Infinity Garter from La Gartier Garters (a.k.a. yours truly)
    Full confession: this garter is from us directly, so perhaps we are speaking with a tad bit of bias right now, but honestly- a garter makes for such a PERFECT wedding gift. Why? Because brides usually don't even think about this detail until the last minute, let alone a garter that dazzles with designer details and blinding sparkle. The best part? Our garters range in price from $30 to $300, meaning that you will have no trouble picking out a style that works best for your budget.

    5. BHLDN Gift Card 

    Ok, so I realize that it is sometimes viewed as faux-pas to give someone a gift card for any occasion, however I can't help but argue here: when it comes to a wedding, gift cards are actually genius. I mean, how are you really supposed to know which details she has taken care of thus far and which ones she has not? Plus, have you yourself ever complained about receiving a gift card before? Um no. I love them actually. With that said, I highly recommend this darling gift card from BHLDN, that can be loaded with any amount you want and gifted either in person or electronically. (Let's aim for in person, shall we? Definitely more personal!)

  • New! The Daphne Flower Wedding Garter

    Truth fast: the world needed a wedding garter like this. It's needed it for years, and we are so excited to finally be able to offer it as apart of our collection! In fact, I have 1/2 a mind to apologize for not creating it sooner for you guys. Behold- The Daphne Flower Wedding Garter - created for the bride who adores all things floral, the bride who finds romance in gardens, and the bride who smiles instantly at the idea of a luxury garden party wedding. (er- I take that back. This is a bride who smiles instantly at the thought of a luxury garden party anything.)
    daphne flower wedding garter

    Where do we start?? This garter is so magical, that we need at least a paragraph to describe its multi-dimensional components! Firstly, a little back story: When creating this garter, the first feature that we knew that we wanted to include was tons of tiny bridal white flowers, a touch of subtle sparkle, and a light-weight, flat-to-the-leg silhouette. 💐

    daphne flower wedding garter

    As you can see in the photos above, the front band is primarily comprised of tiny sparkling swarovski crystal rhinestones.  Blooming from within the sparkling band are dozens of dainty, daisy-like white flowers (made of a soft acrylic that will bend and mold to the touch.) 🌸  The best part? We added 12 tiny swarovski crystal rhinestones to the middle parts of the flowers, ensuring that your "touch of sparkle" is visible from both the outside and the inside of the band. ✨

    Other details to note: this garter is extremely light-weight, thin, and will lay extremely flat against your leg. We created it this way so as to please the brides who want something very minimal and understated. Another huge plus of this garter? It is the perfect choice for you if you are wearing a very form-fitting gown like a mermaid or a trumpet. (Basically, any dress where the skirt is tight against your thighs. Gowns like this do not work well with garters that have a lot of volume. That is to say, they call for a garter like the Daphne due to its slim, barely-there composition.) 👰‍♀️

    To her, the three most important qualities in her life-long-romeo are authenticity, manners, and loyalty. More likely than not, she will be saying "I Do" in a gown that is simple, but with a strong personification of who is is as a person. When asked if she likes sparkle, most likely, she will respond: "Yes, but in small doses." ✨

    Please note: I know this was mentioned before, but this garter was designed to lie VERY flat against the leg. For this reason, it works well with form-fitting gowns as well as something like an A-line or a Ballgown. In essence, this garter is "every-dress" garter. 💎  So, if you are concerned about which garter silhouette will pair best with your gown, this is the garter that will set you worry-free.  (Not sure what we are talking about when we speak to the shape of your gown? Click here for a visual!) More or less, the size and shape of this garter will work with any of the gowns you see when you are wedding dress shopping. 🙌

  • Semi-Custom Garter Spotlight: Jacqueline LaBeau's Quartz and Something Blue Garter Set

     Brides who love quartz are some of my favorite brides in the entire world. There is always something so loving, bohemian and fantasy-like about them. It is almost as if a Disney princess collided with a mother-earth-loving, music-festival going hippie girl...and to be honest--- I can never get enough of it! That is exactly what happened when I met La Gartier bride Jacqueline LaBeau who wanted something personalized for her wedding, but didn't want to lose sight of her wedding budget. For this reason, Jacqueline booked a semi-custom spot with us last February!!
    She thought about her options carefully before choosing the semi-custom as the definite route for her wedding spending plan. However, after viewing all of her choices (especially the charm choices!) she told us that she felt she could express her personal style and achieve an heirloom-worthy-look within the semi-custom design choices.
    Um, but do you know what I love? I don't think that Jacqueline knew just how much she was going to LOVE her final wedding garter set until she saw photos. (See images below!)

    Jacqueline chose the Hayley garter due to the fact that she was wearing a Hayley Paige gown on her wedding day. (side note: she also fangirls HARD over HP, so wearing any other designer was out of the question.)

    For her statement charm, Jacqueline picked out the clear Aura quartz pendant. Why might you ask? Jackie loves all things mystical like astrology, stones that heal, energy readings and-- most importantly-- her yoga-master boyfriend Aaron Spagling. (look him up on instagram immediately! He is incredible!)

    For this reason, Jacqueline felt that the clear Aura quartz pendant expressed not only her personal style but also her relationship beautifully.

    The final product came out so unbelievably gorgeous. To make her set even more personalized, Jacqueline picked the baby blue embroidery thread from our collection so as to cross off her "something blue" by way of her initials and Aaron's initials. (not to mention their wedding date!)

  • Semi Custom Spotlight: La Gartier bride Harrison Chantelle's Luna Something Blue Garter Set

    Last week, we had the pleasure of designing a semi-custom garter for La Gartier bride Harrison Chantelle that was absolutely beautiful. Her soon-to-be-hubby proposed to her underneath the night sky, so the sparkling moon pendant from our charm collection was a perfect symbol for her design. (see photos below!)
    something blue garter
    The best part? Chantelle choose dusty blue as her embroidery thread color as she wanted her something blue to be somehow incorporated into her garter design, which means that her touch of blue is her wedding date and her initials on the inside of her garter.

    Harrison loved the Vienna from the first moment she saw it, so when it came to picking our which garter to customize as her keepsake, it was an easy decision. For her toss, she choose to keep it simple and classy with our ivory on ivory french lace toss garter. However, in order to infuse her set with even more of her own personal relationship story, she chose the Luna pendant as a nod to the night her fiance proposed to her. We absolutely adore how the two look together and cannot wait to see photos from Harrison's big day!

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier bride Becca Lenois' Greecian Opal Princess and Lace Bridal Garter

    Every 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 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!! 
    greek wedding garter
    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?
    lace wedding garter
    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.
