Parasols and umbrellas are a quirky addition to any wedding ceremony or reception. They can be used singularly in many different ways and when grouped together create beautiful sculptures and patterns. Beautiful vintage lace parasols or delicate oriental paper parasols are perfect for an outdoor bohemian wedding. While more traditional synthetic umbrellas can be used as lamp shades or as photo props and if the weather turns you can always use them for their intended purpose!
Hint: There's a fine line between creating a stylish display of parasols and a tacky/sickly sweet arrangement! If you're having an ultra feminine wedding, steer clear of sweet pink lace parasols as props for your bridesmaids, and incorporate them into your decor instead.
