Can you tell I've been a tad bit obsessed with poufs lately?  Created out of tulle or netting, poufs are a great alternative to the longer, more traditional veil.  And let's face it, not all brides feel comfortable going classic these days.  Poufs are uber-chic as well as practical.  They pair up nicely with just about any dress and there's none of that dragging yards of tulle around come reception time.  Finally, they have the ooooooooh la la factor! Whimsy and the element of surprise when you make a grand entrance . . .
