Every girl dreams of looking their absolute best on her wedding day. From your makeup look to your choice of shoes (whether or not they’re seen or hidden under your dress), all the details matter and should look picture-perfect when you finally say “I do.”
Naturally, one of the most important things to consider when you finally walk down the aisle is your wedding gown. It’ll undeniably be one of the most talked about elements from your big day. Especially in the age of social media—with Instagram playing a huge part of this modern digital culture—you can expect that your guests will be zeroing in on your overall bridal look when you tie the knot.
That said, though there’s a myriad of wedding dress styles to choose from, may we present a case for the statement tulle frock? Tulle is a common fabric used for bridal gowns, and with bridal designers like Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, and even Viktor and Rolf reinventing the fabric in a more modern and sculptural way, a tulle wedding gown will surely give you that head-turning moment all brides wish for.
10 Gorgeous Tulle Wedding Dress Ideas to Consider for Your Wedding:
1. A strapless tiered dress with a massive train
Take cues from real life Crazy Rich Asian Feiping Chang who got married in a custom Giambattista Valli dress for her big day. The silhouette is nothing short of jaw-dropping and extravagant and is perfect for the maximalist bride who loves to have a dramatic moment down the aisle.
2. An off-shoulder ball gown with puff sleeves
Channel some Regency era romanticism with this statement dress. Designer Galia Lahav’s take on the puff-sleeved gown is flirty, feminine, and youthful. This style is perfect for a garden and beach wedding, and for a bride who isn’t afraid to go a little unconventional on her big day.
3. A sheer, corseted ball gown
A tulle dress can look both sweet and sexy depending on its design and the sheerness of the fabric. Here’s a perfect example of a saccharine dress but with a translucent skirt to show off a bit of leg.
4. A statement mini dress
The trick to a classy tulle wedding dress is to keep it looking sophisticated and not too juvenile. Here, Viktor and Rolf shows how a grown-up baby doll dress is perfect for your big day. This adorable dress shows off some skin and a hint of cleavage for a touch of sexiness.
5. A form-fitting mermaid dress with a tiered skirt
This silhouette screams Old Hollywood glam, and it’s definitely for a bride who’d love to get all dolled up for her big day. This Giambattista Valli creation takes the glamour up a notch with statement black bows to add detail to the bodice.
6. An A-line gown with statement tulle neckline
If you want to flaunt your shoulders, here’s a dress that will do you justice in photos and IRL. Get inspired by these head-turning tulle gowns from Carolina Herrera and Giambattista Valli, both of which are flattering for girls who’d love to show only a bit of skin. It’s also the perfect style to consider if you’d like to keep your hair and makeup minimal.
7. An ethereal tent dress
If you value comfort above everything else, this style marries high fashion elegance and simplicity. This is perfect for brides who prefer a modest look for their wedding but want to be neither boring nor too over-the-top.
8. A bare-back embellished tulle gown
This style was Sam Pinto and Martine Cajucom’s choice when they tied the knot, and we can totally see why. The silhouette is comfy and easy to move around in, and for a beach babe like Sam, it’s the perfect dress to show off a gorgeous tan. Designer Lihi Hod adds a bit of whimsy with some subtle embellishments and a simple bow.
9. A long-sleeved ball gown with a tulle skirt
If you love a dress with a bit more detail, opt for a gown with embellished sleeves and a tulle skirt as seen on Vera Wang and Oscar dela Renta's lookbooks. This is a great way to cover up your arms if you’re a bit self-conscious; rather, choose a design that flaunts your flawless back to still show off some skin.
