This month I was lucky enought to meet La Gartier bride Gail Meyer, who is currently getting ready to tie-the-knot in Sunnyvale, California. Gail wanted to place a custom wedding garter order, but wasn't quite sure what she wanted. To give us both clarity, I asked her to look through all of the garters on the website and pick out her favorite. The Marina garter ended up being her top pick, but Gail had one problem with it: it was pure white and her gown was ivory. So, we decided to create a garter for her that was exactly like the Marina garter, but using ivory satin and ivory organza. In addition, Gail wanted to bring in the primary color that appeared throughout her wedding: The Dessy Group's "Poolside" Blue. Gail is actually hand-making a brooch bouquet for herself that incorporates over a hundred of blue brooches of different hue and style, which I think is absolutely fantastic. After hearing about her brooch bouquet, I suggested looking around for an antique "Poolside" blue brooch to put at the center of her garter. She was open to the idea so I set to work doing what I do best: shopping. After searching high and low, I was able to find the most perfect antique Poolside blue clip-on earrings at my favorite antique store here in Atlanta. After getting Gail's approval on them, I purchased them and spent a bit of time turning one of them into a brooch for her garter. Below is the final product. Behold, The "Gail" garter, designed just for La Gartier bride Gail Meyer. Thank you so much for contacting me Gail. This garter was such a blast to create for you and it came out absolutely stunning!

Custom Wedding Garter: Lindsey Hasselbring's Violet Orchid Wedding Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 6th of May 2012 05:18:25 PM
I really love it when I get a new, fresh custom garter request. This is exactly what happened when La Gartier bride Lindsey Hasselbring contacted me last month about designing a garter for her that somehow incorporated two very important elements from her wedding: one, the violet orchids in her bouquet and two, the fresh water pearls on her dress and other accessories. She didn't know exactly how she wanted to incorporate these two elements and asked me for suggestions. I set to work doing what I do best: shopping. I got very lucky when I found two extremely exquisite orchid inspired pendants with hanging amethyst gems. I immediately emailed Lindsey pictures of them. (See pics below). After waiting for the orchid inspired pendants to arrive, Lindsay and I built the body of her garter using the "Lavina" garter body style as our base. To bring in the fresh water pearl motif Lindsey requested, we decided to put one single pearl in the center of the charcoal grey bow directly above the orchid pendants. I was beside myself when I saw the garter completely finished. It is the picture of modern elegance, glamour and elegance!! Below is the is a picture of the finished product, taken right here in my studio yesterday. Thank you so much for contacting me Lindsay! This garter was a blast to design for you!!
Pearl Dupioni Silk and Ethereal Vera Wang Tulle Trim make up the body of Lindsey's garter. The embellishment consist of (from top to bottom) a double-faced satin ribbon charcoal grey bow, one single fresh water pearl, and a stunning amethyst pendant with an orchid-inspired base.
