Why do I use silk tulles and fabrics? The quality, feel and end look are light years better than anything synthetic. Having said that, it also has a very different look to other tulles.
It may not necessarily be what you are after or doesn’t suit your style. This is why I also use synthetic tulles (good quality tulle, not that scratchy, harsh tulle you get from mass produced places) because it still has its place along side all of the glorious silk pieces.
Silk has an amazing fluid like quality and drape. Which is why when they hang, they look more like a column of fabric (due to their weight). But once you move, or some breeze catches it, that’s when they show just how stunning they are.
This one pictured is a 75” silk mesh single tier veil in a natural colour (second photo shows close up of silk mesh). She is $195
This sweet little bow is made from beautiful knotted straw. I promised myself I would finally go through my mess and get organised! And in the process I have found all these little hidden treasures I had forgotten existed. Some are unfinished projects, some are pieces made for shoots. This one has been sitting in a box for the best part of a decade! I remember purchasing this straw in London and sending it home as my luggage was out of control 💁🏼♀️
This natural straw has the most divine texture to it and is lovely for races or bridal. It’s definitely one of my all time favourite straws and it’s a dream to work with too!
Anyone that loves vintage will know that there are some absolute gems floating around out among the vast seas of old crap! I’ve been really lucky lately and had a few beautiful pieces come by, and it always makes me happy to see them get another time to shine 💫 And why shouldn’t they! It’s such a nice way of having that ‘something old’ for your day.
This little sweetie is an ivory bridal tulle veil with a corded edge. I’m giving her a little hand by cleaning and repairing her, so she will look brand new on her big day 🥰
Thank you to everyone who came past today for The Wedding Collective garage sale!
It’s always such fun listening to your wedding plans. I hope those ladies that left with a veil love your new purchase, and those I spoke to about custom pieces are equally as excited about what I can make for you!
Don’t forget, I would 💛 to see pics... 😊
