Aquamarine Custom Wedding Garter for La Gartier Bride Krissi Kirschner

By: Sarah Dobson | Wednesday 6th of November 2013 02:37:15 PM

Aquamarine has been one of my favorite colors since childhood. It is a beautiful color, reminiscent of the sea, mermaids, and was at one time believed to protect sailors. It is also the infamous birthstone of people born in March, which is exactly why La Gartier bride Krissi Kirschner requested that I create a garter for her that somehow incorporated aquamarine. The reason: both  both Krissi Kirschner and her fiance were born in the month of March so they share aquamarine as a common birthstone. (I think this is so special. I can only hope to one day share a birthstone with my fiance, wherever he might be♥♥)

I decided to incorporate aquamarine into Krissi's toss garter design and kept her keepsake garter in all neutral colors to match her gorgeous Alvina Valenta gown. Below are pictures of her final keepsake garter along with her custom aquamarine toss garter. Also pictured below are a few gorgeous aquamarine colored accessories and stones. Honestly, I can't get over how pretty this color is. I wish I was born just ten days later so that I too could claim this stone as my birthstone!

A very sincere  THANK YOU to La Gartier bride Krissi Kirschner for being such a delight to work with!

Greek Inspired Custom Wedding Garter For La Gartier Bride Laurie Constantinou

By: Sarah Dobson | Wednesday 6th of November 2013 01:23:06 PM

Last month I had the pleasure of designing a Greek inspired  custom wedding garter for La Gartier bride Laurie Constantinou. Laurie contacted me in late August with only one thought about how she wanted her garter to look: she wanted it to be distinctly Greecian in some way. I jumped at the idea of creating a custom garter for her as soon as I heard this. I mean, who doesn't love Greek inspired things? (Think long white draping gowns, Spartan head jewelry, Brad Pitt wearing gladiator sandals, Angelina Jolie with rope braids, etc) In fact, I have been in LOVE with Greek design since I was a young girl and I couldn't have gotten more lucky when Laurie's email graced my inbox. That is, La  Gartier bride Laurie Constantinou is just about as Greek as they come. Seriously, Laurie Constantinou might be more Greek than grapes. First of all, her husband's name is ANTONIS (I am not kidding) and she is having a Greek Orthodox ceremony in his home country of Cyprus with 1500 guests - "a Big Fat Cypriot Wedding" as Laurie calls it. ( Cypriot tradition is to have between 1000-5000 guests at your wedding! She will only have 12 American attendees total!) Secondly, her son's name is ALEXANDRE MARIOS and goes by the nickname Zues. (I am not kidding) Lastly, Laurie's own nickname is Daphne, which is a Greek word by definition and has a direct etymological relationship to Daphne leaves (which is an unmistakable and classic Greecian symbol)

So, as you can see, there could not have been a better or more appropriate person for a Greek inspired custom wedding garter than Laurie Constantinou. About the design of her custom garter set: We decided to create her toss garter in the design of Daphne leaves (see below) to bring in the classic Greecian leaf pattern. For her keepsake garter, we decided to alter the Lori garter (coincidentally perfect for Laurie's name) by draping a classic Greek Eye Stone chain from two opposite sides. The Eye Stone is a very well-known talisman in Greek culture and if you aren't familiar with it, then get familiar with it. I had no idea how amazing it was until Laurie explained its significance to me!)

Below are pictures of the final product. I find myself smiling to myself when I look at Laurie's garter set. It amazes me how unique and modern her garter set is, while at the same time reminiscent of traditional Greek design. Isn't it just AMAZING?

Topaz Custom Wedding Garter for La Gartier Bride Heidi Lynn

By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 5th of November 2013 05:03:53 PM

Last month I had the pleasure of working with La Gartier bride Heidi Lynn, who asked me to create a wedding garter for her that incorporated two gorgeous genuine topaz stones. This is one of the first times I have worked with topaz (or semi-precious stones at all for that matter) and I couldn't  be more happy with how beautiful Heidi's garter was once it was finished. Another interesting thing to note about Heidi's garter: this customization was one of those rare occasions when the bride gives me complete creative control of the design. That is, usually a bride is heavily involved with the design process, looking at photos of the design as it is being built, telling me what she likes or what she wants changed, etc. However, Heidi decided that she trusted me to design her entire garter from start to finish! (Which is something that i LOVE) She gave me two perameters to work within though: she told me that she wanted a garter made of pure rusched lace and that she wanted me to incorporate the two topaz stones. Below are pictures of the final product. It came out GORGEOUS, don't you think? The two semi precious topaz stones that Heidi sent to me are in the center "cluster" design, with tiny pearls and rhinestones around the body of the garter. A big THANK YOU to Heidi Lynn for trusting me with two such incredibly valuable stones and a double THANK YOU for trusting me with the entire design process of your garter!

La Gartier Bride Grace Miceli's Custom Wedding Garter Design

By: Sarah Dobson | Wednesday 30th of October 2013 06:16:54 PM

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of recieving an email from a woman named Grace Miceli. Grace lives in NYC and is getting ready to marry the love of her life this upcoming July. After a short consultation via telephone, I learned that she wanted to have a garter custom made for her wedding that somehow incorporated the fabric from her mother's veil. (I call design like this "repurposed" designs and I LOVE doing them) After giving Grace my address, I waited patiently for the veil to arrive. Once it did, I was immediately overwhelmed by how special it was.  After I finally got over how beautiful it was, I set to work creating her design by cutting individual strips of tulle from the veil, one by one. (a task that tests your patience, believe me:) I started by asking Grace to pick out her top favorite three garters from the website. This gave me a great idea as to what her personal style was and how her garter should look. Grace told me that she liked the overall look and structure of the Gracie garter (see picture below), I knew right away that her garter needed to be full of tulle and poofy like the Gracie garter.  Then, I asked Grace to send me pictures of her gown so that I could create a garter that worked well with her dress. I was happy that I did this, because as soon as I saw the gorgeous beading around the waistline of Grace's gown, I knew immediately that we needed to somehow incorporate pearls and rhinestones into the embellishment of her garter. This was a perfect decision because there just so happened to be tiny pearls all over the top caplet of Grace's mothers' vintage veil. I carefully removed them and, after creating the body of Grace's garter, used them to create a gorgoeus embellishment scheme along the midline of Grace's garter. (I also mixed in a few rhinestons and pearls of my own) Below are pictures of Grace's final garter design. Didn't it come out stunning? When I look at it, I feel touched that Grace and her mother trusted me to cut up her mother's vintage veil and create a beautiful heirloom peice. As far as "something old's" go, this peice is incomparable. 

 If you are interested in having a garter custom made for yourself or someone that you love, please contact us at info@lagatier.com or use the contact form here. Happy La Gartier eveyone!
