  • La Gartier Bride Samantha Sasso Slays In Our Rhinestone Sparkle Garter

    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!!!

  • How To Wear Your Wedding Garter (Brought To You By La Gartier Bride Brenan Edwards)

    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!

  • A Mother's Heirloom Garter Re-Imagined: La Gartier Bride Hannah O'Connor's Custom La Gartier Garter Set

    Three months ago, I had the most unexpected phone call smack dab in the middle of the morning. A woman from California named Connie O'Connor contacted us about having a custom garter created for her daughter that included not only something extremely personal, but also something that had powerful heirloom integrity. After brainstorming ideas (and a little bit of searching through closets and old boxes on Connie's part), we decided to create a custom garter for her daughter using Connie's original 1994 garter that she had used on her wedding day!
    (I wish I could call this a "vintage" garter, but alas--- is 1994 far enough in the past to qualify as "vintage"? I'll let you make the call on that one.)
    After shipping the darling little lace garter to us, I immediately set to work transforming it into a La Gartier creation. Interested to see the final product? Click HERE to watch the short reel we made on instagram that highlight the before and after!! Or, keep scrolling below to catch a few of my all-time favorite images of the final product! 
    custom wedding garter
    Ok. So I know what you are thinking. This doesn't look even remotely like an old-school 1994 garter. But just bear with me here -- For Hannah's "base" garter, we choose the Glass Slipper due to all of it's sparkling Disney symbolism. (Connie enthusiastically told me about her daughter's affinity for Disney during our first phone call, so choosing the Glass Slipper as her daughter keepsake was a no brainer.) Then, to bring in a heavy dose of heirloom-integrity, we created the back band using the lace from Connie's 1994 garter. Are you ready for this?????

    Do you see the lace here along the back band? All of this lace was taken from Connie's original, well-loved 1994 garter. My favorite part? All of the tiny pearls that you see dotted along the lace were also taken from Connie's garter! Talk about a beautiful embellishment motif! 
    Last, but not least, we incorporated the tiny flowers from the center of Connie's garter as the center statement piece on Hannah's toss garter. Fun fact: the velvet used within Hannah's toss is 100% vintage..which honestly may not sound that impressive to you but let me tell ya: they don't make velvet ribbon these days like they made it in the sixties and seventies. Like, seriously, it's an entirely different animal now. (And when I say "animal", I mean quality.)
    Last, but not least, we decided to include a third garter for Hannah at the last minute. Why might you ask? Because Connie and myself suddenly realized that there was NO WAY Hannah was going to want to toss her darling vintage velvet garter with the authentic statement flower at the center. I mean-- who would want to toss something so heirloom amazing?!! So, at the last minute, we picked out the Ariel Opal garter for Hannah's real toss garter...although I have a feeling she might not want to toss this one either. 
    Dear Hannah and Connie: I consider myself extremely fortunate to have met you both. I honestly feel that we were meant to meet, and I am beyond thrilled to be able to call you one of our only Mother-Daughter-Duo Custom Clients of 2022. To be able to be a small part of such a special day....filled with so much love and so much planning...is truly touching. I hope to do more work for you and your family in the coming years. Mean it.
