Different Types of Tulle
Blossom and Bluebird veils are made from a variety of different types of tulle. When you first start looking at wedding veils, the range of fabrics can be a bit bewildering, so I've written a list of the tulle I use for my veils - along with details about the kind of 'look' they'll give your veil.
Please get in touch if you're still confused; there's no such thing as a silly question, and I love to hear from brides!
SOFT ENGLISH TULLE
A very soft, draping tulle, flowing and airy, very similar to silk tulle. No stiffness at all. When you're standing still, it falls straight downwards from the comb, and when you move it flows around you. In full-length veils it pools on the floor in soft folds - so romantic and dreamy!
~ available in Ivory, Soft White, Pure White, Antique Rose (a beautiful pale taupe).

FINE ENGLISH TULLE
A traditional luxurious tulle with more structure and body than the soft tulle, very sheer, beautiful and lightweight. When you're standing still it flares outwards a little, and when you move it holds its shape. Not at all hard or scratchy. As it has more structure than the soft tulles, it fans out around your train in the most stunning way in full-length veils, and stays in that position more easily than the very fluid soft tulles.
~ available in Ivory, Soft White, Pure White, Champagne, Blush Pink, Silver Grey, Ice Blue.

BLUSH PINK SPANISH TULLE
A beautiful soft-touch tulle only available in blush, a sheer whisper of pink. This tulle is much softer than the Fine English Tulle, and has a tiny bit more 'body' than the Soft English Tulle, without the silky feel.

ITALIAN SPOTTED TULLE
A stunning polka dot tulle from the banks of Lake Como in Italy, this tulle has a little structure and body to it, and gives the most amazing retro feel to your veil!
~ available in Ivory or White.

PURE FRENCH SILK TULLE
- SOFT TYPE
An exquisitely soft 100% silk tulle manufactured in France, the same tulle as was used for Kate Middleton's veil. This is the most luxurious choice of fabric for veils and feels incredible against your skin. Nothing flows and drapes as beautifully as this fabric!
~ available in Ivory or White, or a rainbow of other colours (please send me a message!)
- FIRM TYPE
A 100% pure silk tulle from France with a slightly more structured feel, with more 'body' to it (similar to the look of Meghan Markle's veil). This incredibly luxurious silk tulle is available in all widths from Narrow to Extra-wide, depending on whether you'd like a sleek, understated veil or a much fuller, more dramatic veil like Meghan's. I have no veils made of the firmer silk tulle currently listed in my shop, but please contact me for more information, to explore your options for a custom order.
~ available in Ivory only

SOFT ITALIAN TULLE
Similar in feel and appearance to the Soft English Tulle, but available in a wider variety of colours. Silky-feeling with a soft drape. Slightly less transparent than the Soft English Tulle. An absolutely stunning choice if you want a veil that's not ivory or white!
~ available in Champagne, Blush, Soft Peach, Pale Pink, Shell Pink, Rose, Coral, Lavender, Honey, Mink, Light Silver, Gunmetal, Aqua, Mint
