Under Cover Love

They are a little bit vintage, a little bit playful, and a lot practical. Your wedding might be your "day in the sun" but there is no reason you can't bring a little shade with you. That's right, we're talking parasols!

They are just so perfect.  Some brides opt to have their bridesmaids carry these romantic sunshades in lieu of bouquets. They are an awesome way to help keep guests more comfortable during outdoor celebrations. And beleive me, there is nothing more fun than watching flower girls and ring bearers turn into swashbucklers wielding brightly colored "swords."

Last week I saw this post addressing a bride concerned that a black and white color scheme would be too lackluster for a wedding.  Well if The Perfect Palette's elegant mood board didn't convince you, maybe this will:
Black and white parasols = Vintage Drama

I'm already married, but I think I want the Chantel Thomass number to lend some charm to the rainy season.
