La Gartier Weekly Instagram Round Up

By: Sarah Dobson | Thursday 4th of December 2014 08:49:58 AM

Well Ladies and Gentleman, it is that time again! What time might you ask? Time for La Gartier's weekly Instagram photo round up! Below are a few pictures of the behind-the-scenes happenings from the world of La Gartier over the past week. If you have an Instagram account and would like to follow us, our name is @lagartier. Happy La Gartier everyone! Enjoy! 

Just finished: La Gartier bride Amanda Weber's custom heirloom lace wedding garter set. The story of Amanda's garter is an extremely special one to me because the alencon lace that you see on the body of her garter was taken from her mother's veil. I know, because I cut it myself when I met with Amanda and her mother about three weeks ago. The lace is not the only part of her garter that contains special family heirloom details-- there is a bright blue tag on the inside of her garter that reads "Guiseppe" that was taken from the inside of her mother's wedding gown. We also took four precious bridal buttons from the cuff of her mother's gown and added them to the back seam. When I look at this design, I feel truly touched and honored to have been trusted with such treasured family materials. This is the kind of garter that desrves to be passed through generations.... and it makes me smile bright to think of Amanda's daughters' hands touching this very same lace that I have been working with for the past week. More pictures to come of this "repurposed" beauty

I am developing a serious obsession with vintage ring boxes. I just ordered a box that looks just like this from my favorite online antiques store. Can't wait to have an entire collection here in our studio for brides to choose from!

La Gartier bride Robin Kowalski's "Marilyn" garter on her wedding day. Robin was married on September 6th, 2014. Thank you so much Robin K. for taking the time to send these photos to us! Your Marilyn garter looked phenomenonal on you and we are proud to call you a La Gartier bride! 

Currently working on a custom wedding garter design to match this beautiful wedding gown by Pisjeka. I love to spend Sundays designing!

Currently working on a very special custom wedding garter design for La Gartier bride Ashley Drapino. Ashley has sent me the name patch from her soon-to-be-hubby's fatigues, so that I can work it into her gorgeous design. Ashley is in love with the Vienna garter, so her final garter will be a mixture of the Vienna, the "Ryan" fatigue patch shown above, and the two primary colors from her wedding-- bordeaux and silver. I love it when brides send me things of significance to work into their design as Ashley has. Her final garter will be one of great meaning. I can't wait to share pictures of her final design!

Did you know that lingerie is extremely popular in Asia, particularly Japan? Lingerie design in Japan is going through a sort of renaissance at the moment....... and the creative minds behind the movement are forever stretching the artistic limits. Japanese lingerie tends to be characteristically girly & feminine, utilizing candy pop type colors.....as if trying to transform their women into living, breathing "cute" japanimation characters. If you are ever bored with time to fill, google a company called Intesucre. It is Japan's most well known lingerie designer, and what you will see will blow your mind.

One of my all-time favorite winter inspired bouquets. If you are planning on saying "I Do" in the snow, then check out our Pinterest board called Wedding Bouquets and Flowers. We have been on a winter bouquet pinning spree the past week. So.darn.pretty.

She who starts the day in her Heidi Elnora t-shirt sews best. .........or something like that. 

Currently working on a custom wedding garter design for La Gartier bride Katurah Fowler and absolutely loving how things are coming along. The antlers are symbolic of her soon-to-be hubby's love of the outdoors & hunting. The horseshoe was found and attached at Katurah's request as well. The design is more or less complete, but Katurah and I plan on adding a heavy dose of sparkling rhinestones in and around the keepsake garter, taking her overall design, in my opinion, from "cute" to "oh my gosh, where did you get that?!" I can't wait to ship this beauty to Katurah once it is finished! 

La Gartier bride Amanda Weber's gorgeous pink satin Kate Spade "Fanna" flats. I had the opportunity to see these adorable shoes in person last week during my consultation with Amanda..... and I immediately fell in love. For anyone that loves ballet slippers, these shoes are irresistible. The color is just right and the toe is flat, just like a pointe shoe. Perfect for a bride who plans on really dancing during her reception.

Currently crushing on this picture of La Gartier bride Amanda Weber. What a darling engagement photo this is! And what a stunning dress! Amanda's design is going to include vintage alencon lace from her mother's veil along with satin covered bridal buttons taken from the sleeve of her mother's gown. It will be a "repurposed" design as I like to call it..... and one that I have high expectations for. More to come about this blushing bride-to-be and her custom La Gartier garter!

Just finished: La Gartier bride anonymous-mysterious's custom shark tooth and guitar pick inspired wedding garter design. Her soon-to-be hubby is a surfer in California. Thus, the nine tiny all-natural shark teeth that dangle 365 degrees around the body of her garter. Her fiance also loves to play the guitar, so I commissioned the creation of a custom-engraved guitar pick that reads "I Choose You". Can someone say personalized!?! Can't wait to create the matching toss garter for this beauty later today.

La Gartier bride Lisa Tellison's wedding lingerie set--- the "Bon Bon" set by a company called La Figurelle. Did you know that instagram actually bans the use of about 33 hashtags? The list is ever changing, but currently the hashtag "lingerie" is on the forbidden list, in an attempt to keep Instagram clean & dignified. That's fine. I will just hashtag this post #gorgeous #cantstopstaring #beautiful 

Regram from the gorgeous bridal account of Maggie Louise Bridal -- "I didn't always know what I wanted to do but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be" -DVF


So proud to see lifestyle & fashion blogger Paige Arminta wearing our Joy garter during a recent styled shoot in Utah! The pictures from this shoot turned out beautifully and I couldn't be more grateful to Elizabeth Cooper's Boutique for asking me to participate! So fun to see Paige Arminta modelling one of our prettiest designs! (Photography credit: Ali Brown Studios )

Just in-- a lovely thank you note from La Gartier bride Jessica Wallen. Jessica's garter needed alteration as it was too loose come her wedding day, so we were happy to take it in an inch and send it back to her. (A complimentary service that is available to ALL La Gartier brides) Jessica, thank you for being such a delight to work with! We look forward to seeing (and hopefully sharing) photos from your wedding day!

La Gartier bride Laura Warren wearing her Vienna garter during her pre-wedding bridal boudoir shoot with Kayleigh Kennedy photography. So pretty! Laura's boudoir portraits prove that even if you are not planning on wearing a garter on your wedding day.....or if you opt to skip the garter toss tradition, then there are still plenty of reasons to wear a La Gartier garter. If you are considering doing a boudoir photoshoot for yourself or a loved one, then visit wwe.lagartier.com to see all twenty of our elegant wedding garter designs.

Currently working on a new batch of gift certificates after selling out of the last batch of 100 over the summer. Cutting and tying these pink bows is arduous but always worth it once I see the final product. If you are considering giving the gift of La Gartier, our gift certificates that read "Because Someone Loves You" make a perfect option. This way, she can pick her favorite design on her own. And if you aren't considering giving the gift of La Gartier, then change your mind. Why? LG garters make for a perfect gift, as she most likely is not expecting a modern, elegant and beautiful garter for her wedding day. For more information, please email us at info@lagartier.com 

Stop Making Excuses and Just Do Things. (Thank you for this reminder today The Every Girl!)

The Vienna garter as worn by star of The New Atlanta's Emily Lipman, and photographed by acclaimed wedding photographer #ragartistry. There were so many tremendously talented people involved with this shoot!! So proud to be apart of this team!

Grey And Pink Pearl Crystal Wedding Garter for Hyde Park Bridal

By: Sarah Dobson | Thursday 13th of November 2014 02:23:01 PM

Most people have a favorite color, but do you have a favorite color combo? I do. In fact, I have three. One of my favorite color combinations of all time is hot pink and electric teal. I find it to be a energetic, young and distinctly feminine color combination. One of my second favorites is grey and pink. I have absolutely know idea why but these two colors together have always struck me as hard to resist. In fact, if you look closely, these two colors are a huge part of the La Gartier brand and appear in heavy, obvious doses via our website. Last week, I created a gorgeous grey and pink wedding garter set for Hyde Park Bridal in Ohio. Below are pictures of the final product. Do you think it is lovely? Do you have a hard time taking your eyes away from it as I do? I truly love to create unique, one-of-a-kind peices such as this one.

Heidi Elnora Inspired Wedding Garter with Alencon Lace

By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 11th of November 2014 03:09:21 PM

I have been semi-obsessed with the wedding gowns of Heidi Elnora ever since I began La Gartier in 2011. Which is funny considering that her gowns are known for their Southern Belle flare......and I am not remotely southern. However, I am a sucker for gorgeous fabric and quality bridal design, so it makes sense that I have been in love with Heidi Elnora's creations since the first time I saw them. Last month, on a weekend when I was in a particularly creative mood, I was so taken with one of Heidi Elnora's gowns that I created a custom wedding garter to match it. Below are the pictures of the garter along with a picture of the dress that inspired it. It is called the Katie Grace garter and it is marked by its column of bridal buttons up the front center. This design was purchased last week by Molly Lambert of Maggie Louise Bridal.

If you are interested in having a garter custom made for yourself or someone that you love, please feel free to email us at info@lagartier.com. Or, you can take the easy way out and use our contact form by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Bling Wedding Garter Photographed by RAG Artistry

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 10th of November 2014 09:14:20 PM

One of the best things about living in a big, thriving city is the fact that I have the opportunity to meet a myraid of people-- from accomplished photographers to published writers all the way to reality TV show stars. This was certainly the case last month, when acclaimed wedding photographer Rachael Soyele of RAG Artistry and I met and decided to collaborate together on a styled photoshoot that featured one of our prettiest wedding garters, the "Vienna" garter. The best part? Rachael decided to illicit the modelling help of our good friend and common acquaintance, Emily Lipman. Emily is well known for her role in Bravo's TV Series, entitled "The New Atlanta" and an absolutely fabulous person, so I was instantly extremely excited to see the final product. Below are just a few of my favorite, final images from the photoshoot. Aren't these images incredible? I would like to say a huge thank you to Rachael Soyele for photographing the Vienna garter so beautifully and a second huge thank you to Emily Lipman for being a La Gartier dream model!

If you are interested in purchasing the infamous bling filled "Vienna" wedding garter for your wedding day, then please click here to be directed to its listing in our shop. Or you can take the easy way out and click here to email us about how to purchase. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Custom Initial Monogram Wedding Garter for Celebrity Brides Katherine Webb and Jamie Lynn Spears

By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 4th of November 2014 01:10:47 PM

The past summer, I created a TON of new and gorgeous custom designs for brides all over the world. One design that I remember very clearly was the design that I did for both Katherine Webb and Jamie Lynn Spears-- which were custom embroidered wedding garters with the initials of both the bride and the groom. Below are pictures of both to give you an idea of how I customized both Jamie Lynn's and Katherine Webb's wedding garters with the use of embroidery. Can someone say personalized? To me, these garters are the epitome of customized! (For both Jamie Lynn's garter and Katherine's garter, we decided to put the embroidery on the inside of the garter. This way, from the outside, the garter still matched their gowns perfectly)

If you are looking to have a custom garter created for yourself or someone that you love, please feel free to email us at info@lagartier.com. Or you can take the easy way out and use our contact from by clicking here. Happy La Gartier everyone!
