Parasols are a great way to create some shade for your guests at a hot and sunny wedding ceremony or cocktail hour.
We've seen the natural rice paper parasols at quite a few weddings, but how about a fun twist on the old favorite?
Pamela's Parasols makes lots of unique styles including parasols that are monogrammed, embellished, and have veils attached:
In addition they make the only "green" parasol made from recycled materials that I know of and also have some inspirational recycled umbrellas with butterflies attached and one made out of discarded bridal magazines. Could also be a fun DIY project! Or how about instead of a bouquet made of bows from your showers, make a parasol for the bride to be.
