After running this company for seven plus years, I have seen a TON of wedding garter photos. Usually, our brides will send us photos after the wedding day but every once and awhile, they will send me TWO sets of photos: one set from their pre-wedding bridal boudior session and another set from the wedding. <insert red "100" emoji twice here>For this reason, I have become fairly opinionated regarding how one should wear their wedding garter for their bridal boudior session. (opinionated? Me?? Nah.)So, without further adieu, here are FIVE go-to pro-tips that will help you slay your wedding garter photos, complete with a five gorgeous photos from Intimately Inspiring Photography. Why? To visually highlight what the heck I am talking about of course.
1. We highly recommend wearing only 1 garter for your bridal boudoir shoot. This might seem obvious, however every once and awhile, a bride will decide to wear her both keepsake and her toss garter at the same time during her bridal boudior shoot. It doesn't look bad persay but if you want a clean and elegant look then opt for only 1 garter on that gorgeous leg! #LessIsMore
If you have two garters to chose from, pick the one that is jeweled, slim and super glamorous. Why? Because it looks so.darn.pretty when juxtaposed with the soft, feminine romantic look of your lingerie!
It doesn't matter which leg you wear your garter on but be sure to wear it halfway up your thigh. So, not too low and not too high. Why? I honestly don't know. It just looks more balanced that way.
Make sure to wear something that doesn't cover your garter for at least a portion of your bridal boudoir shoot. So, if you are planning on wearing a bridal robe for apart of it, then that is wonderful but make sure to get a few shots with it off so that you can really see #allthesparkle
Consider pouring bringing a bottle of rosé to the shoot. This pro-tip has absolutely nothing to do with wedding garters, but we consider it relevant because ROSÉ ALL DAY.

Most of our brides purchase one of our designs so that they can have a gorgeous, completely one-of-a-kind wedding garter to wear under their gown on the most important day of their life. However, what most of our clients might not realize is that there are a TON of other ways to wear your garter. From bridal boudior shoots, to engagement parties to plain ol' cute pre-wedding outfits, the number of creative ways that you can wear your garter are limitless. (especially if you are one of those brazen, creative, i-don't-give-a-**** types!)In fact, just last week, we did a brilliant photoshoot with Kelly Lane Photography and model Harrison Sapp that featured our gorgeous wedding garters paired with Hayley Paige's brand new "Sparkle Squad" bomber jacket. <insert hand-to-forehead fainting emoji>Below are just a few of the images from the shoot and a little bit of written information below each photo for all of you that are looking for an extra extra bombshell way to wear your garter. And if you find yourself loving the ideas you are getting from these photos, click here to see our brand new You Tube video from this shoot! (Disclaimer: it's not my fault if you end up buying every single piece from Hayley Paige's new hologram athleisure wear line. That is how pretty these photos are!)I think that the best part about a sequined, iridescent bomber jacket is that it looks good when worn or when thrown over your shoulder. Talk about a fun and totally modern piece of clothing to wear during your engagement months!! And if you are looking for a way to spice up the look even more, pair this oh-so Hayley Paige bomber jacket with one of our wedding garters to up your bridal game by 💯!!Just imagine: this bomber jacket, his garter, and all of your best friends lined up beside you throwing the same cute peace signs.✌🏼 *mind blown*Pair your HP Sparkle Squad Bomber with our brand new Electric Boho limited edition garter for an extra extra iridescent-y look. (is iridescent-y a word? Probably not and I don't care.)Throw it over your shoulder like a sparkly iridescent bride holder.Only 4 days after modeling in this shoot, ATL blogger Harrison Sapp became a bride-to-be!! That's right-- just a few days after modeling for us, her boyfriend of three years, Will White, got down on 1 knee and popped the question...which makes these photos even more beautiful than they already are. These photos are being released during the very 1st week of Harrison's engagement, which makes them even more special/beautiful/meaningful. Congratulations Harrison! We cannot wait to make your garter!All photocredit goes to the lovely Kelly Lane of Kelly Lane PhotographySparkle Squad Like You Mean It.

Not all garters are created equal. I realize that, as the spokeswoman for my own business, I should tell you that everyone of our designs are equally beautiful. However, this just isn't true. There are certain wedding garter designs (especially personalized garter designs!) that knock it so far out of the park, that I just can't help but brag about them. One of these designs came last month, when I created La Gartier bride Kama Holtzman's wedding garter set. Kama first contacted me with the hope that I could create a french lace and blue satin garter with heirloom potential for her February 2018 wedding, however once we got started on her design, it took on a life of its own and bloomed into an design worthy of the word MASTERPIECE. Below are photos of all three of Kama's garters: one to keep, one to pass down and one to throw. Underneath each photo is a little bit of written information about each garter, so make sure to read those little babies too!! (And keep in mind that if you are interested in a personalized garter of your own, then we would LOVE to work with you!! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form by clicking here.)
Kama's garter were made using the prettiest cornflower blue satin as the base. For her keepsake, we decided to "overlay" this satin with an exquisite (and expensive) ivory french lace. Why? Because nothing says heirloom quite like imported french lace. (To me anyway. But Kama agrees, so that makes two.)
Kama's toss garter might just be the cutest toss garter in the history of man. At the center, just under the bow, is a tiny engraved bar pendant that says "You're Next." That way, when one of the single men at Kama's wedding catches the garter, they will have no doubts regarding its significance. When Kama suggested that we include the "You're Next" saying, my jaw almost hit the floor. If there were such a thing as a "cute idea trophy," then I would award one to Kama with ACDC playing.
On the inside of Kama's keepsake garter, we included her wedding date PLUS her & her fiance's initials. When I think of Kama passing this garter down to her daughter someday, I tear up at the idea that Kama's "something blue" will someday be her daughter's "something blue" (cue the tears)
Kama's original toss garter (which she will never actually toss) was a custom version of our blue pearl garter. But take a look at what we added along the back to personalized it!
Isn't it amazing? Along the back of Kama's blue pearl toss garter, we included her wedding hashtag #kamjam2018!! Honestly, how did we live before the perfect adorableness of wedding hashtags?!
Another, close up photo of the wedding hashtag embroidery detail along the back of Kama's blue pearl garter. I can't think of a more modern and sweet personalized detail than the inclusion of her wedding hashtag! Don't you agree?Kama, I can't wait to see photos of your gorgeous garters with your unbelievably beautiful wedding gown on your wedding day! (Don't worry, my lips are sealed!) Creating this personalized wedding garter set for you has been nothing short of a dream!SIDE NOTE: if you love these photos as much as we do and would like to speak with someone about having a custom garter made for yourself or someone whom you love, then please feel free to contact us via email at email@example.com OR you can use the contact form by clicking here.
