Fret not, the brilliant team at Madame Tulle is coming to your rescue! So, ready to wear a pearl veil on your big day?

Pearls have a long, rich history across cultures and time periods. Even today, pearls are associated with images of elegance, femininity, and timelessness. Pearl wedding veils have become more popular in recent years because they allow brides to wear pearls without wearing them as a piece of jewellery. Carrying a sense of timelessness also means that pearl veils are highly versatile to fit a range of outfit styles and wedding atmosphere.
For example, a veil with pearls can bring an element of subtle décor to minimalist or more structured wedding dresses. On laced or embellished gowns, a pearl bridal veil adds a touch of delicate elegance, and understated luxury, at the same time. Our point here is, never say no to the idea of a pearl veil to be paired with your wedding dress.

However, not all pearl wedding veils are made equal. Let us correct ourselves: none of our pearl bridal veils are made equal. The beauty of our creations lays in the fact that each veil is custom made according to the wishes of our brides-to-be. From length and colour of the veil, to style, size, and placement of the pearls, one Madame Tulle pearl veil looks nothing like the next. This ensures a tailored design that perfectly fits to your overall outfit and wedding ambience.

Here are some (more) secrets to Madame Tulle's pearl bridal veils: we don't use metal rivet studs
to attach the pearls. This means you won't have any unsightly metal bits on your delicate piece of head adornment. We also have a range of pearl sizes, making it possible for you to have some optical play with your veil while maintaining an organic feel to the design.
On this note, we'd like to bring your attention to the less-is-more principle. This applies perhaps especially to pearly veils and the number of pearls found on your (future) veil. It's not that we don't want to do the work, or that we don't want you to be showered in pearl - because we truly do. However, let's keep the weight factor in mind here.
As a bride, you want to feel beautiful and comfortable for the entire day. A veil with too many pearls add to the total weight placed on your head. Even a mere 100 grams can translate to "heavenly" or "heavily" for you.
If you thought, "but those models can wear haute couture veils down the runway with no problem," well, remember that they only wear it for one minute, two maximum. These pearly veils are created to be statement pieces of art and inspiration for more realistic, wearable pieces for real brides. Because of this, we ask you to trust our designer's recommendation when you're placing your custom pearl wedding veil order.
Go ahead, we're openly enabling you to dream being surrounded in pearl on your special day. What are you waiting for? Order your pearl veil here.
