(That's what is commonly known as "Black Friday" through "Cyber Monday"!Take a look at the images below to catch a glimpse of packaging prototype number one, entitled “All I Want For Christmas Is Pearls." This packaging concept was created using soft pearl-embellished netting, a gem-studded pink wax seal, lavender scented tissue paper, and double-faced pink satin bows. 🎀Tomorrow, we will reveal the making of the rival packaging design (“Christmas At The Biltmore”) and put the two to a vote! The packaging design that receives the most votes will be chosen as our official packaging design for our upcoming sale. 🖤 Fun fact: We only change our packaging once a year. The time is now.

Chic. Modern. Candid.These are three words that describe La Gartier bride Samantha Sasso's ultra-modern, love-filled wedding day!! Don't believe us? Just take a quick look at the photos below. Before I gush away about her wedding garter style, I want to take a moment to highlight how well these photos from Days Made Of Love Photography capture the happiness of the day first and foremost. Not all candid photos are created the same in my opinion, however these images hit the nail on the head when it comes to embodying energy, love, and pure joy. It comes as a side note (ahem- side joy) that her La Gartier garter is visible in just about every.single.one of these images too....which brings me to another important point: Samantha's wedding day style strikes me as tremendously effortless while also being the literal embodiment of gorgeous happy. It's like that girl in high school that always looked perfect while also appearing as if she never even tried. Maddening, really. However, perhaps the true secret to Samantha's beauty in these photos is truly just her body language. I mean, her garter and her dress are spot on, but just look at that relaxed, truly happy body language! I might just pass away.If you look closely, you will see a slight glimmer of sparkle peeking out from the slit of Samantha's gown. These garters are two of our favorites: the rhinestone sparkle garter! Interested to get Samantha's look? Click here to see the rhinestone sparkle garter...but I must warn you: in order to get her complete look, you'll have to order TWO.Well, well, well. If it isn't the classic Jimmy Choo + La Gartier combination. Ladies and Gentleman, hold your applause. It gets better!I hate to play favorites-- but this just might be my favorite photo taken of Samantha's garters! If for nothing else, this image proves (without a doubt) that a slit + a La Gartier garter + an excellent pair of wedding shoes is the SLAY combo of 2022!! A huge thank you for Days Made of Love Photography for immortalizing this moment!!
Samantha's ultra slim, unbelievably chic bridal garter was the statement of her entire wedding look!!
Thank you to Samantha for not only sending us these images, but for also leaving us the sweetest review ever on Google!!!
As before mentioned, you can order Samantha's garters from our shop.

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me what they are supposed to do with a wedding garter...or what a wedding garter is for...I would be a MILLIONAIRE. Each time I encounter this question, I respond with the same answer. That is to say, a garter is similar to a veil in the way that it doesn't have an actual use. Put simply: it's just fun. Similar to a chandelier that makes a room prettier, the garter is an accessory that offers you the opportunity to take your bridal style from MEH to MARVELOUS. Don't believe me? Just look at these photos from La Gartier bride Brenan Edwards's wedding!!Just last week, Brenan tagged us in a handful of jaw-dropping photos + videos ....and I honestly almost dropped my phone upon opening these image files.When it comes to modern day bridal garter style, it doesn't get any better than this. Keep scrolling to see more of Brenan's celebrity-worthy bridal style!Here, La Gartier bride Brenan Edwards wears our beloved rhinestone sparkle garter with her one piece wrap bathing suit during her bachelorette party! Interested to get her style? Please click here to see the listing in our shop!I am going to be completely honest-- I don't even know if I have seen a bachelorette style this cute in my life...EVER!! Dear Brenan, there are no words to describe my appreciation of your well thought out bridal outfits....from beginning to end! We are SO LUCKY to call you one of our brides!Interested to see more of Brenan's wedding day looks? Click here to visit her instagram account!
