A Word of Advice If You Are Considering Buying A Wedding Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Friday 13th of January 2012 08:47:44 PM
IF you are reading this, then you are on the La Gartier website.........which means that you are probably considering purchasing a wedding garter for your big day. So please let me take a moment to warn you against one thing: I have been noticing lately that there is this one certian type of wedding garter design surfacing on different wedding accessories websites, Etsy, etc that, while very pretty, shouldn't be considered as a viable option. I know this may sound like a bold or arrogant statement so just bear with me. You see, these new wedding garters that I am seeing don't have any elastic in them!! This means that they will not stay on your leg for more than three or four, maybe five steps. I think that a large part of their appeal is that they sit very flush against the leg. They remind me of a very minimal, tiny sort of version of the garter. Below, I have posted two pictures of this exact type of garter. They are pretty but beware! A garter needs elastic to hug the leg and stay up while you are walking. These garters below are essentially like taking a pretty piece of ribbon, wrapping it around your thigh and tying a knot in the back. So please, if you are considering purchasing a garter for you wedding day, steer clear of this "simple ribbon, elastic-free" sort of garter. Ok, rant over.

By: Sarah Dobson | Thursday 29th of December 2011 05:47:47 PM
La Gartier is happy to be one of Kelly's Closet's newest vendors!! Kelly's Closet is one of Atlanta's most treasured bridal boutiques, tucked in the center of historic Candler Park, just down the road from the infamous Little Five Points neighborhood. Kelly's Closet is a truly unique bridal boutique, with bridal gown designers from all over the world. The owner, Kelly, doesn't like to carry things that you may find elsewhere in Atlanta, so the selection you find in her store is very exclusive. In the "closet" you will tend to find things that have a vintage style or timeless quality over something flashy or trendy. Very fashion forward in her buying, Kelly likes to introduce her brides to alternatives to "that same dress that is everywhere". La Gartier is very proud to be one of the newest designers within Kelly's Closet and looks forward to a great 2012 with both Kelly, the owner and Meredith the shop manager!!

"I believe that personal style is all about creative expression. Women are creative beings, and we LOVE to communicate. That is where the passion for clothes comes from: a desire, no a need, to communicate who we are to the world. I love to facilitate this process for women. Again, style is not a size or an age, it is an energy, a confidence, a playfulness, a willingness to explore a little. We all had it as young girls, but somewhere along the way we forget to have fun with our bodies. Size and age become the ruling factors for how we perceive ourselves. I'm all about breaking this down"

Custom Wedding Garter Spotlight: Kimberly Lastrilla's Nautical Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 6th of December 2011 04:49:49 PM
Delighted to be contacted this week by La Gartier bride Kimberly Lastrilla with photos of her nautical-inspired custom wedding garter!! Kimberly Lastrilla entered the Bow Ties and Bliss wedding garter contest a month or so ago, and ended up winning the "Kim" garter. However, in the comments section of her entry, I noticed that she had written that her wedding was to have a nautical theme. After exchanging a few emails back and forth, I decided to design a nautical-inspired wedding garter for Kim. Below is her comment that she left on the Bow Ties and Bliss website along with a few pictures of her custom wedding garter design. Thank you very much for sending these along Kimberly!! I love love love real wedding pics!!

Over the past few months, I have been keeping a file of some of my favorite wedding garter images from different websites, blogs, and magazines. The file is getting pretty large and some of the images are pretty fabulous, so I think a blog posting all about wedding garter photo love is in order. Which is your favorite?

Bride Andrea Antunes' Flower Girl Basket
By: Sarah Dobson | Friday 28th of October 2011 06:59:21 PM
It is so rare that I design wedding accessories outside of wedding garters, however when La Gartier bride Andrea Antunes asked me to design her flower girl basket I couldn't refuse. We had already custom designed her wedding garter-- a stunning vintage cameo wedding garter set to honor the memory of her grandmother-- and she wanted her flower girl basket to be designed in a similar way. I suggested we stay with the same rhinestone and pearl motif we had used ALL OVER her pearl dupioni silk garter by putting rhinestones and pearls around the rim of her basket, on the outside and the inside, and also along the handle. Andrea found a wonderful basket on Etsy, had it shipped to the studio, and below are the pictures of the final product. Send more work my way Andrea I think we are on to something!

Wedding Garter Set
By: Sarah Dobson | Thursday 27th of October 2011 11:24:33 PM
I have been getting so many requests for wedding garter sets recently, that I added a Toss Garter option to the shop. Now you can get a matching ivory or white satin toss garter to go along with whichever keepsake garter you choose from the collection. It is just a plain, simple satin band, made to throwing to a group of rowdy, single men. If you want your toss in any particular color, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on the Contact page. Photos of the newest La Gartier wedding garter sets to come! For now, below is a picture of what the Toss Garter listing looks like along with my favorite new quote. Happy La Gartier everyone!!
