Love letters from some of my beautiful brides
As seen on SAY YES TO THE DRESS - 2018 episode 9 ' Did I hear someone say $16,000?'
Where does one begin. Jaime is a true artist. She took my vision (many visions) and created the exact look I couldn't put into words. She is my fairy godmother. From the moment you have your phone consultation, you feel safe with your decision. She is a true professional, keeps to her word and her work is beyond. I received so many compliments on my veil cape and my garter. I have to say I'm already looking for another life event to have Jaime create for me. Pure artistry. ~ Marlena M
I wanted a cape to go with my dress. I could not find a cape anywhere! I reached out and asked if she knew where I could get one since she designed accessories. She wrote back and asked details, 24 hours later I had a sketch that to approve. it was beyond my expectations. not only did i love the design, but she gave me different options for each part (different laces, different crystals, etc) she helped my vision come to life. she made several prototypes and even went with me to a fitting to make sure the color matched my dress and was the appropriate length. even if you do not see what you are looking for on her website i stress that you email or call her. she will make it. it is the best quality, hand crafted, one of a kind piece just for you! and she is beyond helpful, really listens to what YOU want. i would use her again in a heartbeat!! ~ Ash H.
‘Jaime at Champagne and Grit helped me make my wedding uniquely my own. I was able to bring my personality into the more traditional aspects of a wedding ceremony with the Magenta Ombre Veil she created for me. (and match my bridesmaids/wedding colors which killed in photos).
She sent me samples ahead of time to help me make the perfect choice on fabric color - such a fabulous experience. Very grateful to have found you and your beautiful art! Everyone *died* when I walked down the aisle. 5 STARS’. ~ Laura
Jaime with Champagne & Grit is just the best!
‘From start to finish, my experience with Jaime at Champagne & Grit has been fabulous, and the output was truly the most fabulous cape which worked perfectly with my Wedding dress and was exactly as I had imagined. So unique and complimented by mermaid tail wedding gown to perfection.
Jaime accommodated a change in dress mid way through our conversations, which resulted in her lengthening my cape FOC. Additionally, using a piece of leftover lace from my veil, she customized a vintage handkerchief which I gave to my Mum on my Wedding Day morning, (Jaime she absolutely loved it - there were tears!)
Jaime will make your wedding veil/cape dreams a reality. I would highly recommend her, especially if you want to be a bride that wants something a little different to the norm’ x Katie
‘Wow, where do I even begin? From the very first message (and there were a lot!) Jaime was SO, so wonderful to work with. She's incredibly kind, understanding and helpful, and was by far the best person I worked with in my entire wedding planning process. The cape that I received was BEAUTIFUL. A picture of it paired with my dress went viral, my alterations lady nearly fainted, and my mom was left without words when I finally put it on with my dress. If you're thinking about getting something from Jaime's shop, DO it. It was the best decision I made when putting together the look for my big day’.~ Dayana
‘I cannot say enough about the kindness, talent, and genuineness of this beautiful soul Jaime. Not only is she a creative little fairy she’s a forever friend! Her style is timeless and magical. The custom pieces were beyond what I ever could have imagined and Jaime even went above and beyond with other wedding details for me.. I also had her join me at my 1st fitting and it was like hanging out with a life long friend! Thank you Jaime from the bottom of my heart for creating personalized details to make our day extra special’! <3 ~ Lauren H.
‘Loooved my cape veil! It was very fun to wear and I really enjoyed not having something attached to my head. Jaime was super speedy and helpful answering my questions. I was worried about my timeline and she even sent the rings before the veil was ready so I could bring them to my dress fitting. The little rings were very easy for my seamstress to attach (less than 5 minutes). Everything is packaged beautifully. I have since re purposed the box to hold wedding cards. I also appreciated that I didn't have to spend any time getting wrinkles out of the veil. Amazing, thank you!’ ~ Edith
'The garters I bought for my wedding were really beautiful and really well made. They stayed in place all night and have lasted in great condition since the wedding as keepsakes! I was super picky about finding a garter that was unique and classic and elegant, and the ones I wore from Jaime were perfect!' ~ AnnaKathleen
‘Jaime with Champagne & Grit is a true artist! All of our communication had been over email and she STILL pulled the bridal cape off with no problems at all!
She is so kind and quick to respond! I thought I loved my dress before the bridal cape, but after putting the bridal cape on I felt that my dress was 100% complete! It was the perfect addition to my dress and more than I could ever have asked for. Thank you Jamie for making my bridal cape dreams come true!’ ~ Allison
'All my life headbands have been my thing, finally my little girl dreams of getting married to the man of my dreams came true. I didn't want to be boring and traditional with a veil, I wanted a headband and boy did Jaime make me the perfect one! It was everything I was looking and hoped for 💕not gonna lie I was almost more excited for this headband than I was the dress, it's perfect and so cute! It made my day even more special and made me feel truly myself and beautiful on the biggest day of my life! I highly recommend Jamie and her talents, you will not be disappointed I promise! Thanks so much to Jaime you’re the best!' ~ Ciara B.
‘I highly recommend giving your business to Jaime. She sent samples before I made the purchase to make sure it matched my dress perfectly. You can tell she really loves what she does as it shows in her communication and the finished product. Thank you Jaime!’ ~ Morghan
'Ok but seriously where do I even begin ? We all know how stressful wedding planning is and then throw in waiting on etsy orders to arrive on time ... This lady is amazing . 1st of all she has great communication, 2nd she will basically go out and figure out a way to get you what you want from a simple picture that you like . She sent me swatches within the week I emailed her (free of charge) and then when I was ready to order the belt - she waived a rush order charge for me .... And you know when every single vendor is on your last nerves and someone says they're going to waive a charge for you just out of the kindness of their heart it almost brings you to tears ! Not to mention in probably a week , YES ONE WEEK the most beautiful glamorous belt arrived in my mailbox ...' ~ Toni L
‘Where do I begin..... my cape is just stunning! It’s packaged beautifully and I received a hand written personal note from Jaime wishing me the best on my wedding day. Jaime is amazing, she talks you through what you want and isn’t at all pushy. The workmanship on the cape is incredible and I can’t wait to wear it at my wedding.
Thank you so much Jaime and anyone who likes her products.....go for it! You won’t regret it!’ ~Gráinne
"I'm getting married in August, and have spent the last year drowning myself in photos of "what you should look like" and constantly being disappointed in what was available in my local bridal shops. I wasn't completely sold on a traditional veil and was looking for something different to provide a "wow" factor. Jaime has 100% provided that for me. I found her shop on Etsy while passing through looking at hundreds of other veils and was immediately drawn to her bridal capes. My wedding gown has off-the-shoulder sleeves, so I wasn't sure if it'd work out. But to make sure, I just reached out to Jaime to see what her thoughts would be. She was so incredibly accommodating and basically the sweetest human-being ever. She decided to take me on as a "custom" client and made me feel so special throughout the entire process. Her direction and process was so easy to follow, and if I didn't understand anything, she would respond quickly with any questions I had. When I received my final product in the mail, I gave out a literal verbal squeal. My fiancé had no idea why I was so excited, but I scurried away to go open the box as quickly as possible. I opened it up (in solitude) and couldn't believe my eyes. Even though I was too terrified to unravel it from its package, the quality of the tulle and crystals were breathtaking alone. A week later, I finally got the courage to fully open it and try it on. I'm not going to lie.... I cried a little on how happy I was. Tomorrow is my first alterations appointment where I'll get to try on my bridal cape with my actual dress, and I can't even put into words on how excited I am. I already told my mom to get the Kleenex ready, so she's prepared. Bottom line, if you are looking for something custom and high-quality to add to your wedding look. Please reach out to Jaime and Champagne and Grit. You will not regret it ONE BIT." ~ Laura
Jaime is the sweetest to work with. She completed the back necklace within her posted time frame and shipped quickly. The item is GORGEOUS and exactly as pictured. Very happy overall and can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day! Highly recommend! ~ Aimee
Absolutely gorgeous! Excellent ethereal quality and workmanship and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day! Jaime was easy and extremely friendly to work with and went above and beyond to provide quality service and workmanship. I cannot recommend this cape and her shop enough. Thank you Jaime! ~ Amanda Stout
The belt is so gorgeous, and Jaime so obviously cared about the safe delivery of the item, as well as the quality and craftsmanship (this coming from someone who is OCD), and the personal touches made it feel like a close friend was designing something special for my big day. If you're thinking about ordering from Jaime, stop thinking and do it. She's a rockstar. She will take care of you! ~ Heather
My cape is breathtaking. Jaime was the best through the whole process. She kept me updated on everything. I got pictures as she was working on my order. I’m so happy I found her to do my cape it is gorgeous. I can’t wait to wear it this summer. ~ Myia M,
Jaime is a pleasure to work with! She sent me a swatch of available colors ahead of time that helped me find the right one to match my dress- that was a HUGE help! The veil arrived in the most beautiful packaging (it was so pretty i almost didn’t want to open it)! ~ Kelly Y.
When looking for a belt for my beach wedding, I came across Jaime's work and quickly found something so unique that I instantly knew would be perfect. The belt's design was something I had not seen anywhere else, whimsical and swirly in a way that tied in perfectly with my dress and our beach setting. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the belt sparkles like crazy without overwhelming the dress. It's the perfect accent and made my dress truly my own. I highly recommend Jaime's work - you won't be disappointed!' ~ Lauren M.
Jaime was so kind and easy to work with. She answered my questions thoroughly. I had a question about the ribbon for my belt and not only did she answer my question right away but she sent me swatches in the mail without me having to ask! The belt she made me was picture perfect. I was having second thoughts about my wedding dress but, once I added Jaime's belt I felt super gorgeous on my wedding day. The belt completed the look and was exactly what I imagined for myself. Her packaging was personalized and helped to protect the delicate nature of the product. I can't imagine getting this kind of personalized service any where else!' ~ Jaclyn R.
I don't have enough words to explain the absolute joy that came from working with Jaime. The entire process was flawless, from me asking a million questions (which were swiftly answered), to creating a payment plan just for me, to receiving a personal card with my GORGEOUS cape veil. I have panicked about every single aspect of my wedding, until it came to ordering from Jaime. She kept me updated, ordered and shipped my veil quickly, and delivered the most beautiful and perfect veil I have ever seen. I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day! Thank you Jaime for everything, and for being such a sunshine through all the planning clouds! Lindsay S.
