  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Sydney Mann's Tiffany Blue Homecoming Dress Garter

    I try not to play favorites when it comes to our custom wedding garter designs, but there is no denying that there was one very special Tiffany blue garter design that sticks out like a gorgeous gem from 2018. Actually- let me back track a little and explain: Every once and awhile, I will have the opportunity to design a garter for a bride who has known her soon-to-be-hubby since high school or, better yet, has been dating her soon-to-be-hubby since high school. <insert happy squeal sound from deep down. Seriously. So romantic.> 
     
     This was DEFINITELY the case a few months ago when I worked with La Gartier bride Sydney Mann, who sent me her homecoming dress as well as pieces of her prom queen sash in order to create a custom wedding garter for her December 15th, 2018 wedding. To say that this was a unique and BEAUTIFUL project would be an absolute understatement. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a creation process filled with iridescent jewels, the brightest tiffany blue tulle you have ever seen and more sparkly embellishment possibilities than I have ever known what to do with.

    And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Sydney's beautiful custom garter design symbolizes an aspect of her relationship, her wedding day style, and what might possibly be one of 2018's most stylish weddings.
    Interested in having a custom garter made for yourself? Please email us at info@lagartier.com to book your custom spot. Right now, we are completely booked until May of 2019 but as long as you are not getting married until after June 1st of 2019, then there is still time!!

    The pear shaped pendant at the center of the tiffany blue toss garter was chosen to match the shape of Sydney's wedding ring.
    All of the tulle and iridescent gems on Sydney's toss garter were taken from her homecoming dress-- the very say homecoming dress that her now husband picked her up in during high school!

    At the last minute, Sydney and I decided to create a simple wedding handkerchief for her wedding using one of the gem's from her homecoming dress and custom embroidery. So happy we did! It looked ah-mazing in photos!

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: Michelle Champline's Custom Navy Seal Garter

    Every once and a Texas moon, I will have the opportunity to create a custom wedding garter design for a bride as a gift from the bride's sister. <insert tons of LOLS>  This was DEFINITELY the case last October when I worked with Amanda Champline of La Vallee Bridal to create a custom garter set for her twin sister Michelle Champline.
     
    Actually- let me back track a little and explain: in 2018, La Gartier was fortunate enough to meet Amanda Champline, an absolute, drop dead beauty who was preparing to open her very first bridal store in Vail, Colorado. After partnering and working to provide La Vallee with some of the chicest, mountain-inspired wedding garters on this planet, Amanda sent me a very kind email one Sunday afternoon, asking me if I would be interested in creating a custom piece for her beloved twin sister Michelle. 
    Without even hearing the details of her request, I agreed immediately. Full disclosure: I have been a huge fan of Amanda from the very first time I met her over the phone, so the idea of designing something for her twin sister was a project that I welcomed immediately. And I am so happy that I did! Amanda's ideas for Michelle's garters were amazing. She asked me if she could send me a custom Navy Seal pendant to symbolilze her soon-to-be-hubby's Navy roots (first idea) and then asked me if we could use Michelle's stunning Inbal Dror dress as the base inspiration for the body of the garter. 
    Wondering how Michelle's garter came out? Scroll down to see photos of her beautiful personalized garter set!! (not to mention her custom hankie!)
    And make sure to read the written captions below each photo to learn how each detail within Michelle's beautiful custom garter design symbolizes an aspect of her relationship, her wedding day style, and what might possibly be one of 2018's classiest weddings.

    Michelle's toss was made using hunter green vintage velvet-- chosen to match one of the primary colors used in her wedding. At the center was one single gold charm that read "family" <3

  • Custom Garter Spotlight: La Gartier Bride Cristina Bulifant's 50 Shade of Purple Personalized Wedding Garter Set

    Being a color-passionate, as a personality trait, is something I have learned not every possesses. I used to think every in the world had a favorite color that they were transfixed by every time they saw it. <cue deer in headlights frozen body language.> However as I grew up, I slowly discovered that there are only a few people on this earth that feel strongly about one particular color, and fill their life up with it as often and as "extra" as possible. 
    I try not to play favorites when it comes to our custom wedding garter designs, but there is no denying that there was one very special Tiffany blue garter design that sticks out like a gorgeous gem from 2018. Actually- let me back track a little and explain: Every once and awhile, I will have the opportunity to design a garter for a bride who has known her soon-to-be-hubby since high school or, better yet, has been dating her soon-to-be-hubby since high school. <insert happy squeal sound from deep down. Seriously. So romantic.> 
     
     This was DEFINITELY the case a few months ago when I worked with La Gartier bride Cristina Bulifant, who told me she loved the color purple more than anything in the world. (I loved her instantly.)
    She emailed us one bright, spring day with one simple request: could we create a custom garter set for her December 2018 wedding that somehow combined her love of purple with her husband's love of Ford Mustangs? To say that I was immediately taken aback by the sheer uniqueness of this request-- not to mention Cristina's clarity of vision-- would be an UNDERSTATEMENT.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a creation process filled with gold vintage ford mustang charms, vintage lavender velvet with silk inner lining, more sparkle than either of us new what to do with, (just kidding. we knew what to do with it.) and the prettiest tiffany blue details to boot.

  • The Mother Of Dragons Wedding Garter

    It has been a hot sparkly minute, but we finally did it-- we released a brand new limited edition wedding garter. And this garter isn't just any limited-edition design. This is the FIRST EVER limited edition design that comes with a toss garter, making it the first limited edition wedding garter set this side of the Mississippi. (Ahem-- anywhere on the planet actually. Seriously. I googled it.)
    Inspired by the infamous character Khaleesi from Mother of Dragons (a.k.a: Daenerys Targaryen), this incredible wedding garter set is literally filled with GOT symbolism. Because the details of this design are so complex and special, please allow us to take a moment to bullet point the most alluring of its features:
    *The front band of the keepsake garter features exquisite ivory and pearl detailing. Hidden within the beading are over 20 "dragon scale iridescent" rhinestones added for extra sparkle.
    *Hanging from the center is a dainty silver dragon pendant. (Please note: this is removable!! We hand-sew each one on ourselves. So, if you would rather have this design without the dragon pendant at the center, please email us at info@lagartier.com OR leave us a note in the "comments" section of your check out.)
    *The velvet inner ribbon of this design is "Khaleesi Blue"-- which is meant to be your "something blue" if you do not have it and/or a nod to Khaleesi's signature color. The best part? Embroidered onto each inner ribbon is the number of your design. That is, if you order the third Mother of Dragons garter (there are only ten total) then yours will be marked "three of ten" on the inside. This is the very first time we have ever done this! 
    *At the center of the design, just above the silver dragon pendant, you will notice a cluster of three rows of pearls. They are in the shape of a trident. Each one of these lines represents one of Khaleesi's three dragons - Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion. 
    *This design, unlike any other past LG limited-edition, comes with a toss garter. <insert hayley paige dancing bride emoji> The design of the toss garter was created to resemble dragon scales- slighty iridescent, round and layered. 
    *The back band of both the toss garter and the keepsake garter are dotted with tiny rhinestones for added sparkle.
    *The back band on the keepsake garter has a faint silver trim on the top and bottom. This is symbolic of Khaleesi's silver white hair. (If you watch the show, you will know that her silvery hair is more prevalent in the later seasons versus the earlier ones. Still, this is an iconic Daenerys color if ever there was one!)
