Tulle wedding dresses

Tulle is the making a huge comeback this season, transforming classic wedding dress styles into whimsical, floaty creations. Here are our top fives to way to wear the fabric of the moment

Princess

Cinderella inspired looks are huge this season and tulle is a classic way of adding volume to princess styles. Bringing the look into 2016, designers are all about elegant, flowing layers as opposed to structured skirts. Tulle is the best material to use in a full skirted gown as the feather-light fabric helps to reduce the weight of the dress.

Fit and Flare

Dramatic fit and flare gowns are still a popular look on the catwalk and tulle adds a touch of the whimsical to this bold style. Mermaid style dresses look extra dramatic with a voluminous tulle skirt and dropped waist creations dazzle with soft, flowing layers of tulle fabric.

Colour

Traditional tulle dresses are romantic but coloured tulle dresses are princess worthy! Blush is a firm favourite for the fairy-tale bride but don’t be afraid to rule out stronger colours like grey and even black. Bride’s looking to achieve an ombre look should wear a tulle dress as the faded colour look can easily be achieved through layers of the thin fabric.#

Short

Ideal for twirling in, tulle is the material for a fifties tea length style. Add layers for extra puffiness or choose demure A-line. As tulle is not a material often found used in day-to-day clothes, it adds a sense of occasion to simple, above the knee gowns too.

Empire line

Empire cut dresses with draping tulle skirts are gaining momentum with Bohemian brides for their loose, ethereal aesthetic. Perfect for relaxed affairs, the graceful material skims problem areas such as the hips and stomach to create a slim-line shape that flatters all figures.
