Some brides are major veil girls, while others choose to opt out of this traditional bridal headpiece. If you're not the type of bride who's interested in wearing a long, cascading bridal veil as part of her bridal ensemble, why not make it part of the decor instead?At a Camarillo ranch wedding, the bride decided to opt out of a traditional veil and show off her gorgeous mahogany curls instead. But the allure of the veil wasn't lost on her — she added cascading veil-like tulle behind her dessert table instead. I love the effect — it softens the rustic barn and adds romance.
Here are a few more ideas for adding tulle to your wedding's decor.
- Wind it around a trellis or arbor for a dramatic entrance to your wedding.
- Use it as a table runner for your reception.
- Tie it in bows around the backs of chairs at your ceremony.
- Braid ribbon into lengths of tulle and use it as an alternative to bunting.
- Create a transparent tented effect when you hang it from the ceiling.
