wedding gown

Wedding gowns from Samuelle Couture light up my eyes.

vintage wedding ring
Vintage wedding rings that make the entire world feel like diamonds. Do you adore vintage jewelry?

wedding shoes
La Gartier bride Lauren Dennis's gorgeous blue Badgley Mischka shoes. This week, Lauren and I are working together to create a beautiful custom garter for her wedding that includes peacock feathers. The color of blue in the peacock feathers + these shoes are going to make for an incredible, vibrant combination. Gotta love a bride who isn't afraid to use a little color in her wedding!!

Martin Luther King Jr quote
To me, the three words Martin-Luther-King might as well be Love-Dream-Peace. Happy birthday to one of America's finest heroes.

pearl rhinestone garter
Slim wedding garters like the Lori were created specifically for form-fitting gowns like a mermaid or a trumpet. That way, they cannot be seen underneath the skirt of your gown. Seamless. Sparkling. Glamorous. (Photocredit: Claudia McDade.)

Hayley Paige wedding gown
Behati behati behati. It's like "Marcia Marcia Marcia" but with a Hayley Paige twist.


So psyched to see the newest edition of The Knot FINALLY hit stands in Georgia!! One of our past clients, Hayley Paige, made the cover story!! Get your copy today at any major grocery store or Barnes & Noble today to read about one of the most magical weddings of 2015!! (page 62 is my happy place!)

feathered wedding shoes
La Gartier bride Chelsea Morgucz's Jimmy Choo bridal heels. These beauties are called the "Viola 100 embellished suede sandals" and my jaw hit the floor when I saw them. They might be my favorite 2016 Jimmy Choo wedding heels to date. Can see yourself wearing them for any special, sparkling occasion?

bling garter Vienna
The Vienna garter takes your getting ready pictures from a ten to a twelve. Look for this design plus twenty sparkling others here at www.lagartier.com (Photocredit: Rachael Ann Gliebe.)

custom garter
Just finished: La Gartier bride Tori Sexton's custom vineyard and French lace inspired wedding garter set. Tori is planning on saying her vows in a gorgeous vineyard with the love of her life this May, so we decided to create a custom design for her that included a vintage grapevine brooch. (Pictured at the center of her toss garter, which she is never going to throw.) To make the design even more "Tori", we picked out a gorgeous French lace for her toss garter that matches the lace on her gown. (Not pictured here is the darling embroidery patch on the inside of her Vienna garter with her wedding date in blue.) Too perfect, right? I'm telling you-- the only person that likes this wedding garter set more than me is Tori Sexton herself. Tori, it has been such a pleasure working with you. xoxo, Sarah

From La Gartier with love!

La Gartier Bridal Garters Weekly Instagram Roundup

Below are a few pictures of the behind-the-scenes happenings from the world of La Gartier lately. If you have an Instagram account and would like to follow us, our name is @lagartier.

sparkle garter
Life goals: Marry a professional baseball player. Wear the Vienna garter on your wedding.

we are about that life

Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

bridesmaid hair idea
Obsessed with this hairstyle today. Do you think that this messy side braid would make for perfect bridesmaid hair? (Btw- follow us on Pinterest for more wedding day ideas than you know what to do with.)

blush pink bling garter
Just finished: La Gartier bride Suzie Marshall's custom blush pink and pearl Vienna garter. Suzie contacted me last June about creating a stunning design for her December 2016 wedding. Suzie requested a design that was filled with sparkle, the color pink and ivory pearls. Her wedding theme is Art Deco, so we decided to use the Vienna garter as our base but modify it by creating a band that was filled with pearls, rhinestones and blush pink beading. Today, this stunner of a design has arrived in England, to Suzie's rainy doorstep and I couldn't be happier about it! Suzie, working with you over the past two months has been a delight!! Our "meeting" has resulted in a gorgeous, wearable work of art! Many hugs to you and your fiancé!! Xoxo, Sarah.

gold sparkle glitter
Currently in LOVE with this tiny glass vial of glitter that reads "Pixie Dust: Sprinkle and Think Happy Thoughts!" I want to take this glitter and sprinkle it all over my 2016, don't you? Remember-- your thoughts become things so if you want your 2016 to be 365 days of dreamy dreaminess, start now with your thoughts.
Life is short. Buy the Gartier.

wedding hairstyle idea
I thought about doing the "2015 Best 9" collage thing, but then I realize you probably would be more interested in this hairstyle. Follow us on Pinterest for tons of wedding day beauty ideas at www.pinterest.com/lagartier!!

Jimmy Choos
If choosing your wedding shoes with style and grace were a sport, then La Gartier bride Kelly Rose has already beaten us to the gold.

La Gartier bride Dominique Scott-Efurd wearing her Vienna garter + Hayley garter (as her throw garter!) on her wedding day. I can't think of better legs to adorn than professional athletes' legs. Strong, fast and beautiful is Dominique Scott-Efurd. Check this woman out of you need any running inspiration. (Photocredit: Meredith Mcclary-Benfield)

something flourescent blue
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something flourescent blue?? Time to cut, cut. Sew, sew.

sailing custom garter
Currently working on an incredible custom design for La Gartier bride Susan Monette, who has requested a garter design that is reminiscent of 16th-17th century pirate sailing ships. (Think Pirates of the Caribbean but historically-accurate.) The theme for Susan's wedding day will be "The Era of Vintage Sail," so you can imagine my excitement when I found this tiny 3-sail gold pirate warship while personal-shopping last week. This little baby is over two hundred years old (circa 1800s!!!) and it depicts a ship from the EXACT century that Susan is in love with. To say that I am obsessed with its intricate carvings and dainty detailing would be an understatement. We plan on creating the body of her garter so that the back ties up like a corset, using ribbons that are distinctly ship-like. To make everything even more special, all of Susan's correspondence has been via email, as she currently sailing off the coast of Australia with her soon-to-be hubby. So, basically, Susan is on a ship, designing her ship-inspired garter with me. Too perfect? Right? Honestly, I have never worked with a bride who has such an distinct "old-world" vision for her garter.......and I feel it capture my imagination like a Venus fly trap. I can't wait to post pictures of the final design.

you are capable of amazing things

Atlantan Brides
I may or may not have chosen this nail color to match the most recent cover of Atlantan Brides magazine. Page 66 is my happy place. Thank you to Modern Luxury Brides for such a lovely write up about our sparkling company.

bling garters
I find that if I make pretty things, then my life becomes prettier.

Giuseppe Zanotti sparkle heels
La Gartier bride Suzzette Baldwin's gorgeous new Giuseppe Zanotti Design heels. These babies are called the WITCH sandals......and I just about died when Suzette told me that she picked them out because her fiancé believes that she put a love spell on him. Do you believe in love spells? Did you use one on your fiancé? Does he know it?

Hayley Paige garter
Hayley Paige-inspired garter designs make the world feel iridescent.

blush pink unicorn garter
Magical unicorn garters to make her dance.

From La Gartier with love!

Currently working on a beautiful custom design for La Gartier bride Brittany Camara. Brittany's wedding theme is "Garden Romance," so she has requested a blush pink design with strong floral elements. I don't know about you, but I think that gardens are the some of the sexiest places in the entire world. Apparently Brittany's fiance feels the same way, because that is where he picked to propose to her. (Heart skips a beat!!) I'm so honored to be a small part of this couple's wildly romantic journey. Big hugs to you Brittany Camara!!!! I sit down now to create this beauty! Music turned up! Phone off! Xoxo, Sarah

Real Lace Wedding Garter from La Gartier bride Stacey Nicolini

By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 18th of October 2015 08:56:52 PM

When our past clients decide to send us photos from their weddings, the day suddenly feels like Christmas!! This is exactly what happened earlier today when La Gartier bride Stacey Nicolini sent us photos from her wedding, shot by the one and only Laura Hernandez Photography. Suddenly, I felt like posting these photos EVERYWHERE!!♥

Last February, I had the pleasure of creating a custom wedding garter for Stacey using lace from her grandmother's wedding dress. After we were finished designing her garter, Stacey requested that I create a custom bouquet wrap for her as well, using a pearl necklace that onced belonged to her grandmother. Below are pictures of not only her garter, but also her bouquet wrap and her drop dead gorgeous Christian Louboutin bridal heels. Can someone say GORGEOUS?!

If you would like to book a customization for yourself or someone thaty you love, please email us at info@lagartier.com. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Pearl and Swarovski Crystal Beaded Custom Garter For La Gartier Bride Grecia Valle

By: Sarah Dobson | Monday 16th of March 2015 10:28:30 PM

Creating La Gartier bride Grecia Valle's wedding garter was such a wonderful experience that I am very seriously considering working her design into our permanent collection. That is how gorgeous her garter is. (see photos below) The back story: Grecia wanted a wedding garter that matched her heavily crystalled and pearled wedding gown. However, she also wanted something personal on her garter. So, we added a custom patch on the inside that included her wedding date and her initials. My favorite part was that all of jer embroidery was done in a darling baby blue.......so, in my not-so-humble-opinion, Grecia officially has the prettiest "something blue" west of the Mississippi!!! 

If you are interested in having a custom garter made for yourself or someone that you love, please email us at info@lagartier.com. We are already becoming booked for the spring and summer of 2014, so if you are interested, please contact us right away! We suggest that you schedule your customizationatleast six months in advance. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Custom Batman-Inspired Garter for Sarah Brennan

By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 1st of March 2015 07:07:36 PM

I do not always design custom garters for brides. Every once and awhile, I will create a custom garter for a mother-of-the-bride or best-friend-of-the-bride......or even a fiance-of-the-bride who plans on gifting the garter to the person saying "I DO". This was the case recently when I designed for Sarah Brennan, who officially wins the title of Best-Stepmom-In-The World. Why?? Because she had this garter custom made for her step daughter, who is getting ready to walk down the aisle in St. Louise, Missouri in just a few months! Both her step-daughter and her fiance are HUGE comic book fans, so Sarah thought it would be wonderful to have a special Batman garter made just for her. I can't disagree. I relish being able to work on fun, original designs like this! Isn't it just perfect?? My favorite part is the fact that the alencon lace on her keepsake garter matches her dress perfectly!

If you are interested in having a custom garter made for yourself or someone that you love, please email us at info@lagartier.com. We are already becoming booked for the spring and summer of 2014, so if you are interested, please contact us right away! We suggest that you schedule your customizationatleast six months in advance. Happy La Gartier everyone!

Heirloom Lace Wedding Garter for La Gartier Bride Amanda Weber

By: Sarah Dobson | Wednesday 7th of January 2015 01:47:57 PM

Last month, I had the pleasure of designing a "reporposed" wedding garter for La Gartier bride Amanda Weber. I call her design a "repurposed" design because it was created using fabric from her mother's vintage veil and buttons from her wedding gown. (circa 1976!) I absolutely love creating wedding garters like this, even though they can prove to be some of the most challenging. The best part was that I had the chance to meet La Gartier bride Amanda Weber and her mother at a local bridal store in Atlanta in order to custom the necessary fabric from the veil....as well as the buttons from the cuff of her vintage wedding gown. I am not going to lie-- there is nothing quite like seeing a wedding gown from the 1970s rolled out in its full beauty in front of you. There is something magical about it. However, there is also something very nerve racking about cutting into a peice of clothing so special. So, I took a few deep breathes and cut the necessary fabric. Below is the final product. Didn't it come out AMAZING?? My favorite part is the blue tag on the inside that reads "Guiseppe." It was taken from the inside of Amanda's mothers' wedding gown too! Talk about a way to check off your "something old" and your "something blue" at one time. 

If you are interested in having a custom garter created for yourself or someone that you love, please email us at info@lagartier.com. Happy La Gartier everyone!
