Wellll….how long is your aisle? How big is your cake table? Obviously the measurements won’t be one size fits all.

Get the width measurements between each place that you want it to drape, and then add how many inches you want it to drape, then multiply how many drapes you need in inches, then divide by 3 to get your yardage. Add a couple yards to that measurement, just in case.

I’d suggest adding extra, because tulle can be so transparent and mine showed up faintly in photos.  My red tulle actually showed up hot pink (and the ivory tulle bows at each pick up didn’t show in photos at all).

@bells: You are very welcome 🙂

I would suggest not cutting your tulle lengthwise. You want it to be as full as you can get it for a nice affect.

That’s definitely something to consider.  Since you’ll need at least one bundle, I’d say do a trial run on some chairs at home and see how it goes.  I bought 6″ wide tulle rolls and would have double or tripled the thickness on them for better appearance.  You might need to cut it length-wise, then layer it on top of each other so it’s not as bulky (if that makes any sense!).
