The month of April means April showers, which must explain why I can't stop thinking about parasols! We recently changed our window display at The Hidden Garden to feature parasols and I think, just like flowers, they are beautiful wedding accessories.
While parasols can be functional, especially this month, they can also be used as decorative pieces year-round. They are perfect for adding a touch of whimsy and vintage charm to your wedding. Like any accessory, they can be personalized to enhance your wedding decor. In fact, many embellishments that are popular for bouquet handle treatments and aisle decor are also popular for parasols.
A bride striving for a romantic look and feel might choose to carry a parasol adorned with feathers. A lace parasol is perfect for the classic bride, while, a parasol featuring a monogram, or message, is best suited for a bride with a modern aesthetic.
A parasol is a versatile accessory that is feminine and fun. Plus, the best part of parasols and April Showers is that they bring May flowers.
