Alice in Wonderland Wedding Garter

Every once and awhile, I will simply make a garter for the fun of it. This was the case for the Alice in Wonderland garter, inspired by all of the Alice In Wonderland inspired weddings I have come across on wedding blogs and inside magazines lately.
I have always loved the Alice In Wonderland story and movie. Visually dynamic, eclectic and dreamy are all words I would use to describe Alice In Wonderland. These are the words I used as my guide while creating the Alice garter. Below is a picture of the Alice garter and the following is how I designed the garter and why: The bright "Alice" blue velvet ribbon that runs across the middle represents, well, Alice and her famous blue dress. The rhinestone lock and hanging key pendant represent the lock and key motif seen througout the story (also slightly reminiscent of the white rabbit's hanging pocket watch chain) and the red cards around the body of the garter represent.......you guessed it..........the red queen. Although you can't see it in the photo below, there is a single rockinghorse charm on the backside, along with a tiny kitten charm.
If you are having an Alice In Wonderland themed wedding, this garter would make the most unique, precious detail to your wedding day. I love it so much actually, it will be hard to sell it. Oh well, guess I will have to go through the completely fun, challenging and creative process of designing another one!!
Below is the La Gartier Alice In Wonderland Wedding Garter, along with one of my favorite Alice Inspired Weddings.

Peach Wedding Garter Love

The color of the sunset. Starfish. The state fruit of Georgia. What do all these things have in common? Yep, that's it: the color peach. The mature cousin of the color pink, or perhaps what would happen to pink if she got out in the sun a bit more often. (I just kill myself sometimes)
No, but really, peach is one of my favorite colors and makes for a great wedding garter color. With this past collection, I really tried to keep most of the garter designs in ivory or white, but couldn't resist bringing in peach, pink, blue and teal. The peach garter was a hit surprisingly, so much so that I have used it again in the upcoming collection.
If you are a bride who has incorporated this warm, fuzzy, soft, subtley feminine color into the color pallete of her wedding or if you simply love the color peach, below is a great garter option for you. This garter is made of a peach tulle netting with four tear-drop sized rhinestones in the center. The band is a matching peach, done in an exquisite double faced satin ribbon.
I've listed a few other peach things below as well, just in case you love it as much as me!
