It’s soft, romantic, versatile and inexpensive. Ladies, meet tulle — quite possibly the most bridal material there is. Whether it falls from the skirt of your gown, drapes from your veil, envelopes your bouquet or dresses your reception tables, the potential is boundless with this cotton candy-esque fabric. Check out these cute ways to incorporate tulle into your big day:
AMPED UP AISLES: A simple sash around each outer chair or pew helps further define the aisle for the ceremony. The best part about bunched tulle is that it doesn’t have to be perfect — it’s perfectly imperfect and looks chic no matter how it’s gathered. So, if you’re entrusting a friend or relative with decorating the ceremony site, you can rest easy knowing there’s not much risk of user error.
CHAIR CHEER: Slipcovers were so 90s. Dress up reception chairs with a section of tulle gathered by a bloom or bow. If decorating all the chairs in this fashion is too much, reserve the special touch for the bridal party seats, or perhaps just the bride’s chair.
TULLED TABLES: We are crazy for these tulle overlays, which add a feminine touch and texture to the table.
LACED UP IN LOVE: Ditching heels for some kicks on the big day? Replace the laces with tulle ties for an extra bridal touch.
FAIRYTALE FASHION: A gown with a full tulle skirt — need we say more?
BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP: For a sweet spin on traditional flower decor for the ceremony, try a tulle-embellished arch. It floats in the wind and creates a stunning softness that’s to die for in pictures.
CANOPY CAKE: We all know the cake is the centerpiece of the reception, but a tulle canopy makes it even more spectacular.
