Welcome to our magical oasis at Park Studios ATL where we showcased our 2021 collection with the one and only Kelly Lane Photography.Our fave opalescent garter, the Ariel Opal, collided with model Mariya Khlysta for a moment we will never be able to forget.A warm thank you to Plum Pretty Sugar for sending us this incredible Femme Bridal Robe. It made the aesthetic of our shoot shine bright like a diamond.Are you feelin' those glam vibes?! We are. And we are so appreciative to the one and only Bogart Beauty for slaying Mariya's hair and make up look last week. Pure magic right here.We are particularly smitten with this image of the Ariel Opal garter on Mariya towards the tail end of our glamorous shoot. Doesn't she look amazing?The one and only Mariya Khlysta wearing our Oh-So-Engaged earrings with a robe from Plum Pretty Sugar!!! (Mic drop.) 🎤🎤 A big big teary-eyed, heart-bursting-with-gratitude THANK YOU to everyone who made our most recent, floral-inspired photoshoot possible! Dear photographer Kelly Lane: it hurts to think I might not have met you. Your photography skills are a true creative blessing to all of us. The world. Me. The flowers. Your kitty. The city of Atlanta at large. Just EVERYONE. 🙏🏼🙏🏼💋💋💋And to model Mariya Khlysta- all I can say is that the woman at the Chanel counter who insisted that I get in touch with you is getting a special thank you package this week. Like, tomorrow. I’m totally serious. I owe her one big time and there is DEFINITELY some big magic up in the sky that helped us cross paths. I am stunned by the combination of your physical beauty and your inner prettiness. It’s definitely not common. Girl, you are a TRUE UNICORN. 🦄🦄🦄🦄.To make up artist Erica Bogart: I am not only grateful for your shimmer-highlight-glam-bam-talents, but to the universe in general for bringing us closer these past few months via various creative projects. I once heard somebody say “let your work be your prayer” .....and I can’t help but wonder if our simultaneous always-striving-to-grow-to-greater-heights hustle is, at this point in our lives, in perfect alignment with one another’s right now...which....when fused together, consequently resulted in these incredible photos of Mariya ...not to mention mini-charcuterie boards and pink telephones. 👯📞😂And to the amazing ATL bridal store Elite Pour La Vie- I am speechless. This gown made the entire shoot and I would like to apologize to NO ONE about how much we are going to be tagging you in 2021. 😂😂🤗 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼If anyone out there reading this is truly smitten with the wedding dress in these photos, please get in touch with a store called Elite Pour La Vie. You won’t regret it. People fly out to Atlanta every week to try on gowns at this legendary store. 💗💗

Sad fact: our ivory pearl toss garter is officially SOLD OUT for the month of April, however we will have it back in stock on May 10th. (see photos below for an idea of what our ivory pearl garter looks like!)If you were planning on ordering this gorgeous pearly garter for your wedding day, we will cross our fingers that you can wait until May 10th to order. If not, we highly recommend our rhinestone toss garter, which is a design with TONS of sparkle but unfortunately no pearls. You can see our rhinestone toss garter by clicking here. In need of a garter that has pearls? Then you might consider our blue pearl toss garter that is designed just like the ivory pearl garter but with a double dose of "something blue." You can see our blue pearl garter by clicking here.(Side note: we take great effort to make sure that we do not sell out of our most popular designs during wedding season. However, there are a few rare occasions when it happens. Instances like this make me cringe because I want nothing more than to be able to provide our brides with the products that they need, at the exact time that they need it. But alas, it happens every once and while which is why I always encourage our brides to order their garters at least three months before their wedding. That way, if we are sold out of something, you will only need to wait about one month for us to have it back in stock. Not satisfied? Email us at email@example.com to see if you can pre-pay for your design in order to have first dibs on our new designs. Ok, rant over.)

If I had a penny for every time someone asked me how to measure for a wedding garter, I would be purchase something similar to the Titanic Diamond in order to make the most luxurious wedding garter ever created. It's a valid question because we so rarely ever have an occasion to measure our thigh. I mean, seriously, how many other upper-leg accessories have you worn in your life? So, without further adieu, below are my step-by-step instructions regarding how to measure your leg for your wedding garter, complete with a pretty visual guide.First of all, I should tell you that there is no official rule for which leg you should pick for your garter. That is, you can wear it on whichever leg feels right to you. Personally, I like my left but perhaps it is because I am right-handed?? Who knows. What matters most is that you are comfortable, so pick whichever leg you want.Then, take a fabric measuring tape (the cheap sewing kind that you can buy at the grocery store are fantastic) and measure about five to six inches from the top of your knee cap. This usually ends up being about mid-thigh.Note: Don't pull the tape in too tight lest your measurement be smaller than it actually is. And don't leave it too loose either, or your measurement be too large. Wrap the tape so that it perfectly flush to your skin without any intense pulling or drooping.Next: round up or down to the nearest whole inch. (No need to send us fractions ladies. The nearest whole inch will do just fine. You can thank the elastic on your garter for that one.)And that's it! Once you have your measurement, please leave it in the "notes" section of your check out or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!I know it's a hassle, but sending us your leg measurement ensures a perfect fit, which I have a feeling that you want. With garters this pretty and pricey, we definitely don't mind going the extra mile to custom make your garter to fit your leg as long as you don't mind taking the time to measure. Happy La Gartier everyone!

For some, St. Patrick's Day is a holiday best spent drinking green beer, eating corn beef and cabbage or commemorating the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. For others, St. Patrick's Day is all about celebrating the color green and finally saying goodbye to the Ugg wearing days of winter. Like many of my color-obsessed wedding industry colleagues, I definitely fall into the latter of those two categories. This year, St. Patrick's Day meant creating an instagram video using green roses (swoon) as well as the one rare occasion to purchase a gold Shamrock paperweight from Target. (At $19.00, this item is an absolute steal!) The only thing missing from this video is a rainbow, which..... believe it or not, I actually spent quite some time trying to figure out how to manufacture. Turns out that Mother Nature is the only one who has that down. Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you are wearing your prettiest green dress/blouse/heels/earrings right now!! (Btw- if you love the garter that I am wearing in this video, you can make it your own by clicking here.)

Just finished: La Gartier bride Jamie Boekhoff's gorgeous custom army name tag wedding garter set!! The story: Jamie's fiance was in the army special forces, so she wanted a design that had a meaningful army touch but that retained a classic, feminine look. So, we chose the Athena garter as her keepsake garter but opted to personalize it by incorporating her fiance's army name tag (taken straight from his uniform!) into the back band. 💗 To add to the heirloom integrity of this garter set, Jamie sent me lace from her mother's wedding gown to use on both her keepsake and her toss (which she will never actually toss) and a "St. Lucia" blue turquoise ribbon for the center bow on her toss garter. The turquoise blue ribbon serves as not only her something blue but also a nod to the color of her bridesmaids gowns AND the location of her wedding -- ST.LUCIA!! 🐠🌴🌊🐚 🐟🐬 The best part? The skeleton key hanging from the center of her toss garter symbolizes her love for her recently departed grandfather, who was a huge lover of skeleton keys and who gave Jamie a small collection when he passed. Jamie, creating this set with you has been touching, rewarding and just plain fun! I can't believe we started with the name tag concept alone and then somehow managed to create a piece with multiple layers of meaning!! And so naturally!! If there was ever a wedding accessory to be kept, it's this one. We did good!!!
