Custom Blush Pink and Chantilly Lace Wedding Garter for La Gartier bride Illia Morales

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 21st of April 2014 04:52:14 PM

This garter is feminine, high-quality and classic. It was custom made for La Gartier Illia Morales last week, just in time for her fast approaching wedding in San Juan, Puerto Rico. (Our second Puerto-Rican bride in less than a month!) Illia requested that her garter include chantilly lace due to the fact that it is the main lace used on her wedding gown. In addition, she wanted just a touch of blush pink in order to bring in the main color from her wedding color pallete. Would you believe me that I am already getting requests for this exact same design after posting one single picture of it on Instagram??!! If that does not attest to its gorgeousness, I don't know what does! 

If you are interested in having a custom garter made for yourself or someone that you love, please feel free to contact 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!

Blush Pink Tulle and Opal Rhinestone Wedding Garter For La Gartier Bride Amanda Topits

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 21st of April 2014 04:33:33 PM

I have never designed a wedding garter that I can barely bring myself to ship off. But I did last week. That is, this wedding garter was designed for La Gartier bride Amanda Topits....and also, accidentally, myself. I absolutely LOVE the combination of blush pink tulle and rhinestones on this custom garter. To make it even more appealing, it included opal-looking stones that match Amanda's gorgeous Hayley Paige gown. When I finished this wedding garter set, I instantly knew that I will want to wear something very close to it on my own wedding day. I mean, isn't it beautiful?? It is going to be worn by Amanda Topits, who owns a bridal boutique called Hyde Park Bridal in Cincinnati, Ohio. (They carry La Gartier garters in their chic, high-quality store:) 

I am almost positive that Amanda's wedding is going to be published in a well-known bridal publication like Martha Stewart or Style Me Pretty, so be on the look out for the beauty of a garter on the glossy pages of some bridal magazine near you in the not-too distant future!!

Custom Guitar and Navy Blue Satin Wedding Garter for La Gartier Bride Nicole Suarez

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 21st of April 2014 04:15:04 PM

There are some wedding garter designs that I make that are more personalized than others. This custom guitar charm and navy blue satin wedding garter is one of them. And what a wedding garter it is! La Gartier bride Nicole Suarez contacted me from Puerto Rico last month with one request: she wanted me to create a "guitar-inspired" custom wedding garter for her San Juan, Puerto-Rico based wedding. She also asked that the garter be made to match her gorgeous Monique Lhuillier wedding gown. In addition, she wanted it to include a small element of navy blue due to the fact that it was apart of her wedding color pallet. Why might you ask? Because this is what you do if you are a in love with an accomplished guitarist from San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

Below is Nicole's final custom wedding garter. Isn't is adorable? I mean, this garter screams "I LOVE MY FIANCE!" louder than words! My favorite part about it is that it is so darn personalized. If you are interested in having a garter custom designed for yourself or someone that you love, please feel free to email us at info@lagartier.com.

Custom Ivory Lace and Pearl Wedding Garter for La Gartier bride Katelyn Theiler

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 21st of April 2014 04:02:28 PM

This custom wedding garter is a perfect example of how less can be more. That is, this garter was designed for La Gartier bride Katelyn Theiler whose personal style is simple, elegant, and timeless. Katelyn contacted me last month because she wanted a garter that would match her personal style and her gown, so I set to work creating a garter that would be just that. I cannot believe how gorgeous the final product is. This is the type of design that will look beautiful ten years, twenty years, forty years and fifty years. In fact, I would be willing to bet money that it will still be one of the prettiest garters around on April 21st, 2024.

Downton Abbey Inspired Wedding Garter with Melinda Humphries Photography

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 21st of April 2014 03:27:10 PM

Last month, La Gartier had the pleasure of participating in a Downton Abbey inspired photoshoot that took place at the famous Callanwold Mansion right here in Atlanta, Georgia. The woman who photographed the shoot was none other than Melinda Humphries, of Melinda Humphries Photography--who I have spent time with personally in the past. I am a huge fan of Melinda's work and would highly recommend her to any bride-to-be in Atlanta who is looking for an experienced, talented photographer to capture the most important moments of her wedding day. Need proof of her talent?? Just look at the photos below!!

(Side note: La Gartier was able to participate in this gorgeous shoot by providing two of our signature wedding garter styles-- the Aurora garter and the Sophia garter. Both of these styles have a naturally "Downton Abbey" appeal and fit in with the overall styling of the photoshoot so well that you would think they were custom made for it!!)

To find out more about the photography of Melinda Humphries, click here to be directed to her website. And if you are interested in purchasing either the Sophia or the Aurora garter styles, then click here to be directed to our online shop. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Gifted: Custom Birthstone Wedding Garter

By: Sarah Dobson | Friday 18th of April 2014 05:04:18 PM

Yay! It is blogging day! I am so excited to spend the day telling the stories of some of the best custom wedding garter designs La Gartier has recently made. And while I wish that we had the time to blog these stories daily, it seems as if the eve of wedding season has our schedules too packed for such endeavors. So, blogging day it is. Today, I would like to start off our blogging spree with the story of Christina Kwan's birthstone garter. Why not La Gartier bride Christina Kwan you might ask? Because Christina Kwan was not the bride in question. Rather, it was Christina's best friend who the garter was designed for. Christina had it designed for her best friend as a gift--and what a phenomenal gift it made. (see pictures below) The inspiration behind this garter came from the birth months of both the bride and the groom. (The bride's birthday was in July so her birthstone was Ruby while the groom's birthday was in November which meant that his birthstone was Topaz.) We decided to put the birthstones side by side to symbolized the couples' togetherness. To make the bride's set even more personal, Christina asked me to design a Florida Gators toss garter for her friend, due to the fact that the couple met in college while both attending the Univeristy of Florida. I absolutely LOVE how the custom garter came out and look forward to designing plenty of other birthstone inspired wedding garters in the future!

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

La Gartier Bride Jamie Lynn Spears Weds on March 14th, 2014

By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 1st of April 2014 03:05:07 PM

We are so proud and excited to annouce that Jamie Lynn Spears is now officially Jamie Watson. She married the man of her dreams, Jamie Watson, on March 14th, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Yes, that is right--his name is Jamie, which means that now that she has taken his last name, they have the exact same name. Now, how is that for being close???)

We are also extremely happy to annouce that Jamie Lynn wore a custom La Gartier garter on her wedding day along with a stunning custom toss garter. (see a glimpse of Jamie's garter in the picture from People Magazine below)  This is La Gartier's first celebrity endorsement and you know what? I couldn't be happier or more proud to call Jamie Lynn Spears a La Gartier bride. The first question that people ask me when I tell them about Jamie Lynn's garter is how she found out about La Gartier. Here goes the answer: She found out about La Gartier via her favorite, go-to bridal boutique in Baton Rouge, Louisiana called I Do Bridal Couture (kudos to the brides who choose to shop local♥♥♥) who have been carrying La Gartier garters for quite awhile. Jamie wanted a garter that was simple and would go perfectly with her lovely Liancarlo wedding gown. I had a blast designing Jamie Lynn Spears' wedding garter and absolutely must take a moment to thank Ramsey Simms, the owner of I Do Bridal Couture, for connecting La Gartier with our first celebrity client. With that said, I can't wait to share more photos from the wedding! For now, please enjoy the few photos below that have been released. Happy La Gartier everyone. Seriously, I don't know if I have ever been so happy to write a blog post.

La Gartier Wedding Garters Featured in Southern Seasons Magazine!

By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 1st of April 2014 02:57:38 PM

La Gartier is happy to annouce that we have been featured in the oh-so lovely Southern Seasons Magazine! This publication spotlights the best of the southeast including cultural and fundraising events, dining, travel, fashion, home and design, health and prominent people. Below is the full article written by journalist Gail O'Neil, who I had the pleasure of meeting over a cup of coffee at Starbucks for the purpose of this feature just a few short months ago. 

My favorite part about this article was being able to sit down with journalist Gail O'Neil herself, due to the fact that I admire her writing so much  (I discovered her blog,  The Gaily Planet, only about a week before I met her) and also because she is a woman with an incredible past. That is, Gail O'Neil is a former fashion model, who has become a journalist of epic proportions. (Kudos to the women of the world with brains and beauty) As a fashion model, she was considered one of the elite African American models in the world. She has been on covers of leading fashion magazines and a part of the highly publicized Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. As a journalist, she has had experience as a correspondent at a variety of national networks in the United States. She was an original correspondent for The Early Show on CBS and has also worked for CNN and HGTV.

You would think that with all of these accomplishments, I would have been sitting down to interview her, but can you believe that I had the pleasure of being interviewed by her?? And believe me, it wasn't just the glamourous past that made me interested in meeting Gail. On the contrary, I was very taken by the writings on her blog far before I knew about her past as a famous super model or her impressive career in journalism. In fact, may I please just take a moment to write about how powerful I find Gail's blog posts to be? It has been quite awhile since I have found an article that can keep my attention, let alone inspire me. If you have a free fifteen minutes before bed one night, please click here to read just one of Gail's blog posts. I am not going to lie--they are not an easy read. In fact, they are quite complex, dense and lengthy. But what else would you expect from a highly educated, intelligent and worldly ex-supermodel?? 

Ok, that's all for today. It is seventy degrees outside for the first time in what feels like a century and I want nothing more but to celebrate La Gartier's most recent accomplishments under the sun! Happy La Gartier everyone! Please enjoy the pictures of the Southern Seasons Magazine feature below along with a few of my favorite (and famous) pictures of journalist Gail O'Neil.
