I love weddings with just a touch of whimsy. There's something so romantic about vintage and feminine touches, and parasols capture all of that. A parasol is basically a vintage umbrella, used to protect from sun and/or rain (though not all are waterproof). At a wedding or shower, there are so many beautiful uses, from a ceremony hand-out, a sweet bridesmaid gift, an arbor made of parasols, even props to hang from a ceiling or strung above a table-scape.   First Row: Elizabeth Messina via Style Me Pretty | Nicole Paulson via Style Me Pretty | Ashley Bee Photography via 100 Layer Cake Second Row: Linda Chaja via Wedding Chicks | Martha Stewart Weddings Lexi is the Editor of a Lifestyle blog: Glitter & Pearls and a Weddings + Events blog: Glitter Weddings.
