Tulle: The Equivalent of Duct Tape for the Wedding Planner!

Have you ever seen those page-a-day calendars that have uses for duct tape for every day of the year? Well I think there needs to be one for tulle, that wonderful bit of netting that comes in circles, on bolts, or in convenient little spools. Tulle is a wonderful tool (no pun intended) for those planning a wedding. It’s a versatile, inexpensive product that’s widely available in a range of colors at craft retailers, fabric shops, and party supply stores. Here are some creative uses for tulle.

Tulle (the kind on a spool) is a great alternative to curling ribbon. Use it in place of ribbon when wrapping wedding favors or bridal gifts. Try twisting more than one color together for a different effect. — Tulle makes great bows to decorate the seating at the ceremony. Tie a big, floppy bow at the end of each aisle and let it drape almost to the floor (but not so low that people will trip on it). — Use tulle in place of streamers at bridal showers. Choose cream or white-colored tulle and mix it with tulle in the colors of the bridal party for a personalized look. — For a simple wedding bouquet, choose several simple flowers and tie the stems together with cream-colored (or white) tulle.

Incorporate tulle into ideas for wedding favors. How about plain wineglasses with tiny tulle bows tied along the stem? Or line the goblet of a wine glass with a circle of colored tulle (available in craft stores), and fill it with candies wrapped in silver foil such as chocolate kisses or hard candies. — Use tulle bows as accents for reception table centerpieces. These are just a few ideas, but with a little creativity, there are hundreds of uses for tulle. With its variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, tulle is a great for a source of inspiration whether you’re planning a bridal shower or decorating for a wedding.
