tulips mulching?

Hi, I am planting 80 tulip bulbs, in rows, my ? is? I am planting them as directed 3x's size of bulb (zone 5) and covering with 3" of mulch, is this enough mulch to keep the weeds down but still have the tulips come up? I read that weeds need light to come up but bulbs dont. what do you think?

I would follow the recommendations for mulching. You don't want the bulbs to stay wet and rot in the ground. Weeds in the mulch are easy to pull, anyway.
