Tulle/Illusion Fabric 

Retro Tea Length Tulle Dress with Illusion Neckline

Light as air and oh-so dreamy, illusion fabrics like tulle and mesh netting make for beautiful bridesmaid dress details. Bridesmaids in tea-length tulle look especially nice when standing next to a bride in floor-length tulle. And a pastel color palette looks pretty during a spring wedding or in a wedding with a garden theme.
