Fabric used to drape arch or arbor?

When decorating an arch or arbor, what type of fabric is used? My best guess it tulle, but I was wondering if anyone has done this. The first photo is an example. We have an arch at our venue, but it's on a bit of a slope that is even more apparent with the arch. We can pay to remove the arch for the ceremony, but I don't know if we could drape something between the two larger trees. The second photo is the actual ceremony site.

    I was thinking of buy curtains from Amazon. I'm still unsure too.

    This looks like chiffon. I did my own using chiffon and this is how it came out.

    It's definitely chiffon. It's too dense for tulle.

    I'll be using tulle to decorate a chuppah, nice and light and breezy!

    We used tobacco cloth which I know sounds crazy, but it looks amazing and only $40 for 100 feet. Here's a pic. Your local farm store probably has it

    I used a window scarf from Amazon (like under $9) it was so long it ended up being perfect!

    That does look like chiffon. We created our own arch but we used tulle.

    I personally think chiffon looks nicer and is easier to drape than tulle. It has more of a natural flow.

    This was me putting it in the tree before it was set up. tulle and chiffon were triple the price and if it rains, I was concerned it would hold onto water because of how light it was and look really different. you'll just have to go to your fabric store and see though.

    Looks like chiffon. Possibly organza, but most likely chiffon.

    So did the 100 feet cover your area shown or did you need more?
