The Status of Miss Gator’s Custom Veil

I’m incredibly busy today (that’s what happens when Grad School starts… your recreational life stops!), but I just wanted to give all my Gator Bride-ers an update on my veil situation. On Tuesday I went and met with Jacquelyn of Jacquelyn Brooks Design. I was there to see my veil she has been making, and to drop of the alencon lace I had tea dyed a few weeks ago.

JB Designs StudioShe has a cute little studio right on University Ave (above Ben and Jerry’s).

I tried my veil on and we did a few alterations to the shape and Jacquelyn pinned the lace I brought to the bottom of the veil. ↓

I’m overall pretty pleased with how my veil is shaping up. It is in my budget and it is very close to the $630 Lori London Veil I liked so much. I can’t wait to see how it looks with my dress (which comes in this September!).

Here’s the breakdown on cost:

Jacquelyn Brooks Design prices vary
Ivory Illusion Tulle from JoAnn’s Fabric $6
Alencon lace off eBay $14
Tea dye Materials (Lipton Tea) $3

Total $23 + JB labor cost

    Jacquelyn is great! She did the bustle/hem for my dress. Plus she made my bolero and boleros for two of my bridesmaids.
