  • 2017 Moments that Sparkle

     

    As 2017 comes to a close, we can't help but look back on this year and feel sentimental. (pretty sure this is called catching feels?) 

    2017 was a year of tremendous growth for us. From new clients to a new space (not to mention a Cyber Monday sale that made all previous years pale in comparison), this year truly sparkled . For this reason, we decided to make a quick video that highlights a few of our favorite "sparkle" moments from 2017, Maybelline-painted flowers and all.

    True story: creating wedding garters for engaged women around the world is pretty much a dream job. It is something we feel TRULY BLESSED to be able to do and something I make a note to thank the universe for everyday. To me, our design studio is a magical place- literally filled with treasure and beauty and inspiration. This quick 60 second video will (hopefully) give you a glimpse into the magic that happens here as well as the gratitude that lines our walls.

    Proof that details are everything,
    Sarah

     

  • Sad Fact: Our Crystal Rock Stud Wedding Garter is Officially #LaGartierExtinct

    Hi all! We are coming in hot this Monday morning with sad news: our Crystal Rock limited-edition design is officially #LaGarterExtinct, meaning that we will not have it back in stock EVER.

    As we realized that this must be upsetting news, here is a photo of an adorable puppy in a sweater to ease the pain:

    Helpful? We hope so. And if not, then here is a little back story on how we run our limited-edition designs so that this doesn't happen to you again: we release exactly 4 limited-edition garters per year: one in the summer, one in the fall, one in the winter and one in the spring. The Crystal Rock was our fall limited edition and we only had 10 to offer from the get-go. Fortunately unfortunately, all ten have found homes with brides from around the world (mostly the United States but one in the UK and one in Australia!) which means that this beautiful and rare design is now an elegant dinosaur in the world of wedding garters.

    BUT don't despair: we have something up our sleeve that might turn that frown upside down:  we are currently working on our winter limited-edition design at the moment and it is coming out BEAUTIFULLY. Below are a few sneak peek photos of the inspiration behind our newest design. <pause>  I am going to stop talking now before I give away any additional revealingdetails! <puts hand over mouth>

  • 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.
