A fine, often starched net of silk, rayon, or nylon, used especially for veils, tutus, or gowns. From the French, after Tulle, a city of south-central France.
The fabric some of us love to hate, which can make your wedding look like a bad high school prom… or a dream come true. It’s all in the details!
It’s Digital Crinoline, here, to talk to you about tulle. Tiffany is not a fan of the tulle- and it’s true, this is a fabric that is often overused, or used to bad effect. It can definitely look like a dated wedding decoration, and in excess it will remind your guests more of a decorated high school gym than a classy wedding. But don’t despair! Tulle can still be an extremely useful tool in your wedding arsenal. Here are a few ways you can use tulle to make your wedding more beautiful, not more cliched.
Tulle in your wedding gown
High quality tulle fabric can be luxurious and really have an amazing look and feel in a ballgown.
Tulle in your decorations
Avoid the prom-style decorations, and the huge festoons of tulle. But with a bit of dramatic lighting, tulle is a very inexpensive way to dress up a venue with an unimpressive ceiling or other features.
Tulle in your veil
Finally, the best use for tulle in your wedding- in your veil! Traditional, surely, and even lesser quality tulle can look absolutely stunning in a good veil. Make your own, buy it at a bridal shop, or look around on Etsy- there are endless possibilities.
