Wedding Dress Fabric Glossary
From chiffon to voile, learn the ABCs of choosing the material that suits your Big Day style. By Benice Atufunwa
A gauzy, netted material, tulle is often used for veils. Generally made from silk, cotton, synthetic fibers or a mixture of fibers, there are different types of tulle to suit your style. Bridal illusion tulle, which is made of 100% nylon, is soft and has the signature hexagon gauze appearance. Silk tulle is very luxurious and has a fine, sheer look and feel that is not unlike high-end hosiery.
