Can I Still Wear A Wedding Garter If I Am Not Doing The Garter Toss?
By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 14th of October 2013 12:59:42 PM
Many brides ask the question "Can I Still Wear A Wedding Garter If I Am Not Doing The Garter Toss?" The answer to this question is absolutely! Many couples decide in advance that they do not want to do the garter toss but usually the bride will still want to wear one beneath her gown on her wedding night. This way, she can have a lovely keepsake to cherish and perhaps pass down to her daughter or a loved one someday. Wedding garters are, afterall, a perfect accessory to pass down as a family heirloom piece. Due to how often this question is heard here at La Gartier, one of our interns, Nia Dural, created a gorgeous graphic in Photoshop to answer it. It is pictured below for your viewing pleasure! Happy La Gartier everyone!

Custom Wedding Garter For La Gartier Bride Husna Khanam
By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 2nd of September 2013 10:31:25 AM
When La Gartier bride Husna Khanam contacted me a few months ago about having a garter custom made for her, I was swamped with customizations and had resolved to declare La Gartier booked for customizations through the summer of 2013. The studio was strewn with fabric, I was over-caffeinated and barely had time to run a brush through my hair. But when Husna told me that she wanted a Indian inspired wedding garter, I knew I couldn't pass it up. The idea of an Indian inspired wedding garter captured my imagination immediatey because it sounded original, eclectic, untraditional and unnervingly creative. Husna went on to tell me that she had, in her possession, most of the materials for the garter and could she send them to me? I agreed and we embarked on a two month long design journey in creating her garter. We shopped for laces on Etsy, took pictures, started, stopped, started over, and rearranged materials until we had everything perfect. Below are pictures of her final garter (which was worth every second of all ninety two emails that Husna and I exchanged) along with pictures of Husna's custom keepsake box and matching toss garter. Are you ready for a description of how/where all of the materails for Husna's garter came from? I hope you have a moment. It is fairly impressive and lengthy. Here goes: The gold lace trim was an Etsy find of Husna's. The center red satin and gold ribbons were purchased from my favorite fabric store here in Atlanta. The center red jeweled brooch and dangly tear-drop peice were sent to me by Husna (all the way in the United Kingdom!). She told me that they were once apart of an earring that she had. In order to make it into a perfect and functional size for the garter, I had to alter the earring a tiny bit with my jewelry tools. The lining for the inside of Husna's keepsake box is from a sari that Husna sent me. I cut it up and sewed it into the lining for her box. She told me that it was a very special sari to her because she wore it to her best friends' wedding the year prior. Both of the appliques that you see on the top of Husna's box and on the inside lid were both sent to me by Husna. I altered the applique on the inside of the box to include the letter "H" for "Husna"......and the matching toss garter was something that I made using materials from the La Gartier studio when I was in a particularly creative mood one late Friday night.
I think that Husna's garter is the personification of personalization and, quite frankly, one of the most impressive La Gartier custom garters ever made. I do not pretend for two seconds to be responsible for the beauty of this final peice. It is as much a product of Husna's creation as my own, due to the fact that Husna was 100% involved in the design process and selection of her own materials. In a way, I was just the person that put together her vision. THAT is how integral Husna was in the creation of her garter. Gotta love a woman who knows what she wants, right?

Real Wedding Garter: La Gartier Bride Jennifer Forchetti's Custom Blue Wedding Garter with Personalized Initial
By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 2nd of September 2013 10:09:51 AM
I love when brides take the time to send me pictures of their wedding garter after their wedding day. It always makes my day significantly more exciting. Last week, La Gartier bride Jennifer Forchetti took my breath away when she sent the picture that you see below. The composition of this photo is absolutely beautiful. I can't tell if it is the wedding garter or the detail on her gown's bodice that makes this photos so absolutely magnetic. Isn't is just beautiful? Jennifer Forchetti asked me to create this garter for her so that she could cross off her "something blue" and also personalize her wedding garter by putting the first letter of her soon-to-be new last name underneath the bow. (Initial "R") A huge thank you to La Gartier bride Jennifer Forchetti for taking the time to send us these beautiful pictures!

Real Wedding Garter: La Gartier Bride Tara DeKamp's Custom Superman Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 1st of September 2013 08:04:57 PM
When La Gartier bride Tara DeKamp contacted me last year regarding making a custom Superman inspired wedding garter, I jumped at the chance. I was excited to create a Superman garter that was classy and elegant, due to the fact that I have seen many Superman garters out there but never one that I though was exceptional. Tara was in agreement with me that she had never seen a Superman garter that she liked and told me that she wanted something that was not cheesy at all. We both agreed that the best way to do this was to leave the traditional Superman colors (red & blue) out of the design all together and, rather, keep the body of the garter clean with an all-white color palet but add the Superman element by way of a simple silver charm underneath the bow. I set to work finding the perfect charm (Etsy find. Are you surprised?) and also a white beaded lace for the body of her garter. It took about three weeks to make and many handstitches. When it was finished, I actually waited one day to ship it because I loved looking at it so much. To my delight, Tara Dekamp emailed me yesterday and sent me pictures of her Superman garter from her wedding. (I love it when brides take the time to do this!) Below are the pictures of her custom Superman garter. A big thank you to Tara for sending us these pictures yesterday and I hope that you post-wedding life with your Superman is *super* dreamy. ♥♥♥

How To Measure Your Leg For Your Wedding Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 1st of September 2013 07:43:04 PM
One of the most common questions I hear from my brides is how to measure their leg for their wedding garter. This happens so often, in fact, that I decided to make a small, simple visual guide to help all brides who need help measuring their thigh for their wedding garter. La Gartier intern Nia Dural created this beautiful guide that you see below to help all La Gartier brides measure their leg, so that we may then custom design their garters to fit their legs.....because who needs a small, medium and large category when you have a measuring tape & an exact leg measurement. Not us:)
Thank you to Nia Dural for creating such a visually simplistic yet elegant "How To" guide.
