By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 30th of October 2011 07:27:09 PM
Well, they did it again. Anna and Brent Deitrich of Live View Studios just shoot some of the newest La Gartier custom Garters and I must say the photography is stunning, again! About a week ago I mailed off about ten of La Gartier's newest custom garters: a country inspired garter, a New Orleans Saints inspired garter, a peacock inspired garter along with a few more and yesterday I checked my inbox to see an email from Live View Studios. The only thing I can think of that is better than good photography is good photography done FAST. Brent and Anna Deitrich are a fabulous husband and wife photography team with a fashion photography flair. To visit their website or learn more about them, please visit http://www.liveviewstudios.com/. Below are some of the newest La Gartier garters photographed by Brent and Anna. My favorite? The country Texas inspired wedding garter.......or maybe the peacock inspired garter...........or maybe the Georgia Bulldogs collegiate inspired wedding garter.................um, I really just like them all!!

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!!

Couture Wedding Garters
By: Sarah Dobson | Thursday 27th of October 2011 10:53:45 PM
Two entire Alexandre Desplat albums and two cups of coffee later and I have officially finished putting up the newest La Gartier garters to the "Garters" page. There are eight new couture La Gartier garters up as of right now, each with her own appeal and style. One of them is a simple toss garter option, as this has been much needed over the past few months for brides who want a simple toss away to match their keepsake. The others include the Pierce (personal fav), the Cherish, the Janie, the Rhianna, the Sydney, the Marina and the Janice.
Below are photos of the newest couture La Gartier wedding garters!!!

Custom Garter: Clouds Raining Hearts Garter
By: Sarah Dobson | Sunday 23rd of October 2011 08:19:46 PM
When make up artist Michelle Clark contacted me a few weeks ago about having a garter custom made for her best friend Tiffany, I was excited. One, it was obvious that Michelle cared very much about her best friend and wanted to give her a completely unique, creative gift for her wedding........which I adore because it makes the creating the garter that much more fun. Second, Tiffany's wedding theme is "Clouds Raining Hearts".......full of felt hearts and rock & roll inspired details........such a completely original theme in my opinion!!!!! Tiffany and Brandon's engagement session had been covered by Rock And Roll Bride due to how irrisistable their engagement photos were. Hopefully their wedding will be too because her garter came out so wonderfully!!! Her garter design was inspired by three things: her black sash she will be wearing on her wedding day, her ruby red colored shoes, and all hundreds of thousands of tiny felt hearts that will be decorating her wedding day. We decided to design the body of the garter in a black satin, centered by a black satin and tulle bow to match her sash. To bring in her ruby red shoes, we dotted the wedding garter with tiny ruby red rhinestones. Lastly, to incorporate her felt heart motif, we hung three felt hearts by black yarn.....one blue, one fuschia, and one red. Below are pictures of the final garter!! In addition, below are Tiffany and Brandon's engagement session pictures from Rock And Roll Bride. What an adorable couple!! Undeniable!!

Real Wedding: La Gartier Bride Pattie Manor
By: Sarah Dobson | Friday 21st of October 2011 10:42:43 AM
I just received a few photos from La Gartier bride Patti Manor of her garter along with a few of she and her husband on her wedding day. Patti, then Patti Boberg, ordered the Leanne garter last March for her wedding in Washington State. I just love the color quality in the picture of her and her husband. Below is the Leanne wedding garter. It is made of a white organza chantilly lace and a center rhinestone brooch that is to die for. Thank you Patti for the photos!

La Gartier an Official TWIPS member!
By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 4th of October 2011 06:53:32 PM
Yay! More good news in the world of La Gartier! I received an email this morning from the TWIPS team, informing me that La Gartier is now an official TWIPS member. What does this mean you ask? Well, TWIPS is more or less a community of wedding garter tweeters. Tweet as in Twitter. You know that bird thing? The definition of TWIPS is 'Twitter Wedding Inspirational Pals." Basically a Twitter club of wedding professionals that support and promote one another's careers within the wedding industry......through.......guess what..........twitter. (I don't think I can write the word Twitter one more time).
With that said, here is La Gartier's official TWIPS badge!! I look forward to promoting and supporting all of my fellow wedding professionals within the TWIPS community!

To Toss or Not to Toss? Wedding Garter Dilemma.
By: Sarah Dobson | Tuesday 4th of October 2011 06:26:11 PM
Being a wedding garter designer, I hear and read a lot about why women decide to stay away from the wedding garter toss segment of their reception. It is tacky they say. Most report an almost definite NO to the whole thing: having their entire wedding party watch the groom search up her gown, scrambling for one of her wedding garments, tossing it to his best male friends? A total Neanderthal practice they say.
Which I can totally understand. To be completely honest, I don't think I would do the whole thing either. Especially if there were teeth involved. Eeekk. However, as La Gartier has grown I have learned that many of today's brides are buying garters not because they want to do the whole garter toss thing or not. They are buying them just to have them. That is, more and more often brides are buying garters just to have a memorable keepsake that they well cherish always, have yet another fabulous accessory, or pass on to their daughters. My garters are meant to be worn and cherished.....and also tossed if the bride so desires (I always offer simple toss garters at a minimal price to go along with the keepsake).
When I started designing wedding garters years ago the actual wedding garter tradition--the toss part---never even crossed my mind. I suppose I am lucky because I am finding that it isn't crossing my brides' minds either.
To toss or not to toss? Doesn't matter when you have a La Gartier garter.
I think I just came up with LG's first slogan:)))
