  • The Bridal Garter? The Bridle Garter? The Equestrian-Extra Garter? I don't know. I Just Love Horses.

    We have all met her. That girl from middle school or maybe even elementary school that plastered her bedroom wall with horse posters. She never hung out after school or participated in any extra-curricular activities because she was usually (ahem-always) headed straight to the barn. Dreamy-eyed and dare-devilish, this girl was commonly referred to as "horse crazy". Did it ever bother her? No-- I don't think so.
    In fact, it seemed as if she wore the label with pride. This spring, we are so excited to announce that our most recent limited-edition garter was made for the grown-up version of this girl. The ready-to-walk-down-the-aisle-then-ride version of this girl. The girl whose love is unbridled and wild. Ladies and gentleman, may we present to you The Bridal Garter. 

    horse wedding garter

    Created using leather from authentic bridle garters, this beautiful garter set was created for the bride who loves everything equestrian. From barrel racing to horse jumping, from dressage to roping, from showing to racing, from endurance riding to just plain brushing, every molecule inside this bride's body adores horses.

    (note: this is the nose band part of the bridle! if you already knew this, then you get an A++ in horse bridle anatomy.)

    Similar to our last limited-edition design, the Mother of Dragons garter, this beauty comes WITH a toss garter-- which means that you will have one to keep and one to toss.

    My favorite part? The locket that is dangling from the center of the delicate lace toss garter was included so that you can enclose a piece of your horse's mane or tail inside. (side note: if you can't ride him/her down the aisle on your big day, then at least you can keep your free-spirited bestie with you in a symbolic way as you say I Do, right?)

    Don't love the idea of the horse hair locket? The no problem at all. It is meant to be versatile, so if you want to put a photo inside, a piece of your bouquet, or even a natural artifact from the venue where you are getting married, then please-- by all means-- DO. In fact, we encourage you to get as creative as you possibly can with the contents of the locket. Just promise us you will send us photos after the wedding
    so as to share your locket genius with us!

    This is our first EVER limited edition design that allows the customer to choose which garter she wants! That's right-- you have two options to choose from with this design: either option A
    or option B.

    As you can see, option A has a touch of a boujee beat to it-- featuring a silver bit at the center with sparkling, rhinestone detailing throughout. (p.s. can we please make "equestrian extra" a thing?!)

    On the contrary, option B takes a more subtle approach-- featuring an elegant, rich leather band with delicate ivory diamond stitching, for a "less is more" sort of a look.

    (confession: so far, option B has sold more than option A, which surprised the HECK out of us. I thought that Option A would be the winner hands down but you all never cease to challenge my assumptions, which I love.)

    garter for women who love horses

    so which one will you choose? Option A or Option B? Please tell us which one you like the most in the "notes" section of your check out! (Bonus points if you are able to leave us your leg measurement too! That way, we can custom make your garters to fit your leg perfectly!)

    But wait! We forgot to tell you about our favorite detail! Each design in marked with the number that it is in the extremely limited amount of this particular design. That is to say, each design is embroidered on the inside with the NUMBER that it is in the series. (Ie: 1 of 10, 2 of 10, 3 of 10, etc)

  • Custom Bridal Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Christin Danielle's Iowa Hawkeyes and Iridescent Sparkle Wedding Garter Set

    When I first spoke with La Gartier bride Christin Danielle on the phone, I instantly knew that she was the type of person who lit up a room when she walked in. Her personality was fun, enthusiastic and inspired. 
    After listening to her talk about what she wanted for her garter design, I just knew that Christin and I were going to get along. Little did I know that the garter set that would be born of our meeting would end up being a direct reflection of her personality as well as her relationship: fun, inspired, and sparkly. 
    The elements of Christin's design were so multi-layered and SPECIAL that I can't think of anything else to do but bullet-point them! Scroll through the photos and the written tid bits of information below to learn more about this oh-so-sporty, oh-so sparkly, oh-so-Christin wedding garter set!!!

    Christin's keepsake garter was a limited-edition iridescent version of our Vienna garter, picked to match the colorful, playful vibe of Christin's personality.

    We made 2 different toss garters for her-- one to pass down to her daughter someday and one to actually throw during her reception. Both were Iowa Hawkeyes-inspired to symbolize a passion that both Christin and her fiancé share: the Iowa Hawkeyes!!

    We hand-sewed Christin's wedding hashtag #therealadamsfamily on the inside of her keepsake garter. My favorite part? We did it in navy blue for her "something blue"!!!! 💙

    The back band of Christin's garter was made using a fine alençon lace that was chosen to match the lace on her wedding gown. Then, to make her design even more meaningful, Christin mailed us a pearl bracelet that once belonged to her mother one sunny day last August. We then cut the string and pulled off twenty pearls to use as embellishments along the surface of the back band of her keepsake. Do you see all of the tiny fresh water pearls sewed along the back band of her garter? (see photo above) Those little pearl beauties used to be worn around her mother's wrist. And that's all that I'm going to say about that ...because Christin's mother passed away recently and it breaks my heart to write about. But now Christin will have a special, symbolic piece of her mother with her as she walks down the aisle, which is pretty much #LoveMagic if you ask me. 
    Happy La Gartier everyone. If you or someone you love would like to have a beautiful, meaning-laden wedding garter made, please feel free to contact us at info@lagartier.com.
