Silk tulle is very hard to work with and I don’t think you can put anything on it (pearls, beads, lace, etc.) without ruining it, I’ve heard of some designers doing that by hand but it is insanely expensive because the tulle is so easy to destroy in that process.  Mine is English net (which is what Kate’s veil was, it wasn’t silk tulle it was English net, which is very very close to silk tulle) and I had it made by a woman in Scotland on Etsy.  It is a bit easier to add lace/pearls/whatever to English net (which is how/why Kate’s veil had lace on the edges) but again very very easy to destroy it if you don’t know what you’re doing.  My veil is very sheer and lightweight but falls and feels just like silk tulle, which is why the two are often mixed up since it is hard to tell the difference.  If you google image search “veil materials” a photo comes up that shows the different materials, I don’t want to post it because it belongs to someone on Etsy I think and I don’t want to post a photo of their page/shop (I didn’t get my veil from this person though).
