Using Tulle in Wedding Decor

Cool Idea: Skip the Bridal Veil and Add It to Your Decor Instead

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.
