Just finished: La Gartier bride Danielle Buckhiester's custom constellation-inspired wedding garter set. Danielle will be wearing a stunning Lazaro gown as she walks down the aisle this June and requested a keepsake garter that would match all the gorgeous beaded detailing on her bodice. (I wish I could say which Lazaro gown but she might kill me.) 🔫 So, for her keepsake, we designed a pearl & rhinestone garter with 3-D floral detailing along the back band to compliment her gown. 💗Then, because she + her fiancé LOVE to star-gaze together, we decided to design her toss garter around the stars. ⭐️🌟And not just any star...but the constellation Andromeda because...wait for it...Danielle and her fiancé have a favorite constellation LOVE story-- the story of Andromeda and Perseus. 🔭 As you can imagine, I just about died when when I heard this and then again when Danielle found this INCREDIBLE Andromeda constellation pendant from a shop called Beau and Stella. It was the touch that set her designs on fire....and I literally couldn't love the final set more!!! Danielle- thank you for introducing me to the story of Andromeda and Perseus!!! Your constellation/Lazaro-inspired garter has heirloom integrity written all over it. (Btw-i think we just made science-chic a thing)

New product alert!!!! As you know, every six months or so, we add new products to our collection. This February, we did just that. And not just any new products, but one that our customers have been requesting for over a year-- a unicorn-inspired wedding garter design. Personally, I couldn't be more excited for the release of uber-magical beauty!Who is the unicorn garter for? The unicorn garter was created for the bride who loves all things magical. She may be a girly girl or she may be an introverted type who loves fantasy literature <insert tons of black eyeliner here> but one thing is for sure: she adores unicorns. In fact, I would be willing to bet 1 million dollars that she is marrying a man who also loves all thing sci-fi/fantasty related (but not as much as he loves her!)The best part? This garter now has its own emoji thanks to bridal gown designer Hayley Paige. (see image below for a glimpse of this gorgeous illustrated beauty!) We actually designed a custom unicorn inspired wedding garter for Hayley in 2014, which is a large part of the reason we are now releasing a permanent unicorn garter into our collection. (Hayley, thank you oodles for the inspiration + emoji! You literally made our entire February!)To make this beautiful garter your own, click here to be directed to our Unicorn Darling garter listing in our shop. Happy La Gartier everyone!

It is no secret that gold is taking the wedding industry by storm at the moment. And you know what? You won't hear any complaints from me. I love this royal, metallic, warm color. To me, the color gold is the personification of romanticism and luxury. In fact, I have been using it in our designs for years and am just now able to look into our Vault at some of the lovely gold garters we have designed in years past. If you are looking for a beautiful garter for your wedding that utilizes the color gold, look no farther than La Gartier Custom Garters. Below are pictures of just a few of our lovely gold wedding garter options for you to choose from. The most popular garter that I would recommend is called The Florentine garter, which you can see by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone!The Florentine Garter features rose gold twining detail and rhinestone + pearl embellishmentsThe Florentine garter as photographed by Angie Capri PhotographyThe Lori garterThe Katniss Garter (limited edition)

It's not every day that we get to shoot with one of the best boudoir photographers in the South. Even more seldom is the chance to hire one of America's most admired yogis as our main model. That's what happened last month when we embarked on a drop dead gorgeous photoshoot with Holly Trizzino Photography, featuring the one and only Carly Grace Hinchman herself. Carly is best known around Atlanta (and for that matter, the South in general) as the "Yoga Barbie" but last month she transformed into a blushing bride-to-be for one day when Holly Trizzino photographed her wearing our beautiful garters. Holly Trizzino is a phenomenal local boudoir photographer who has more talent than she knows what to do with!! (See the pictures below for proof!) Her images of Carly Grace wearing the Vienna garter and the Hayley garter came out beautifully!
Just in case you are wondering where you can purchase these lovely bridal rompers and robes, they belong to the Love Ophelia bridal collection. Where is the sexy lacy bridal lingerie from, you might ask? Look no further than the For Love and Lemons "Skivvies" collection.
A huge thank you for Holly Trizzino for taking the time to capture our designs in such a flattering light! And another big thank you to Carly Grace of Thunderbolt Power Yoga for offering to model for our sparkling company! You both make our company heart shine brighter than a pile of diamonds! Happy La Gartier everyone!

When our past clients decide to send us photos from their weddings, the day suddenly feels like Christmas!! This is exactly what happened earlier today when La Gartier bride Stacey Nicolini sent us photos from her wedding, shot by the one and only Laura Hernandez Photography. Suddenly, I felt like posting these photos EVERYWHERE!!♥
Last February, I had the pleasure of creating a custom wedding garter for Stacey using lace from her grandmother's wedding dress. After we were finished designing her garter, Stacey requested that I create a custom bouquet wrap for her as well, using a pearl necklace that onced belonged to her grandmother. Below are pictures of not only her garter, but also her bouquet wrap and her drop dead gorgeous Christian Louboutin bridal heels. Can someone say GORGEOUS?!
If you would like to book a customization for yourself or someone that you love, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy La Gartier everyone!
