Getting Married in the Summer? Consider A Parasol!
Many wedding goods manufacturers now offer custom parasol options for brides who want to use these accessories on their big day. Customized parasols allow brides to include their monogram, wedding colors, and other personalized details for a one-of-a-kind accessory.
Usually, parasols that are used for weddings are manufactured from thick paper or light fabric, and are intended purely to shield oneself from the sun or as decorative accents. They should not be used as an umbrella alternative to protect against heavy wind or rain. However, the lightweight materials allow parasols to be cut into numerous shapes and styles. Typically, wedding parasols are small and intended for use by only a single person.
You can custom design or purchase parasols in a huge number of shapes, styles, and sizes. Parasols can be purchased in sizes that range from the small, one-person styles oft used in weddings to large, expansive forms intended to shield an entire outdoor dining table. Even the large umbrellas used by beach-goers are considered a form of parasol. The handheld parasols carried by brides are intended solely for protection from heat and sun, but some outdoor parasols can protect against rain and wind as well. There is also a large market for outdoor parasol accessories, including lights, stands, and heating mechanisms.
The parasols used in weddings generally contain more ribbing and folds than other types so they can be made extremely small and, therefore, easily be hidden when the bride needs to put her parasol away. Many brides are even choosing to use parasols as their wedding favors. There are several reasons for this. For instance, custom parasols can generally be purchased in bulk quite cheaply; also, parasols are useful favors if the wedding takes place on an extremely hot day or is held outdoors.
Finally, you could choose to use parasols as props in your wedding photos. While your photographer will surely have ideas to use the parasols, you should perform internet searches ahead of time to find any poses you love and want to recreate.
You can find all sorts of uses for parasols during your wedding day. They are wonderful tools to reduce the risk of sunburns or melted make-up, or as favors and photo props. However you choose to use them, parasols are a worthwhile accessory for your wedding day.
The hot weather that is often present during summer weddings can make it difficult for brides and bridesmaids to keep their make-up perfect. Between sweat and running make-up, brides and bridesmaids frequently fight a losing battle against summer weather. In the past few years, parasols have returned to the fashion scene and are now en vogue as wedding-day accessories. Parasols can be an elegant detail to a bride’s wedding day attire, as well as protect her face and make-up from scorching sunlight.
