Style: Umbrellas

A friend of mine having an outdoor wedding in August asked me what I thought of the idea of having umbrellas for the guests. It got me thinking, with the abundance of outdoor weddings these days, weather can be unpredictable. Umbrellas have become a new chic accessory to help combat both rain and sun. Here are a few different ways to use umbrellas in your outdoor wedding:

Vintage Parasols
A chic and vintage addition to complete your wedding style.
Can be found at such websites as Bella Umbrella.

Oriental Paper Parasols
A very popular way to use umbrellas that come in a variety of colors to match your perfect wedding shade.

Just regular umbrellas are the most practical, but can also be very glamourous and create some beautiful photos as well.

My friend had found some black umbrellas at the dollar store and I think they are a great cheap idea as not only a favor that people would use again, but also practical if it does end up raining. Just plain old black umbrellas can have a beautiful and simplistic effect.
