The Parasol Wedding!

Parasols at Indian weddings

We love parasols! They are so dainty that you can’t stop falling in love with them. There are tons of ways to incorporate this pretty umbrella at your wedding. Here are some ideas on how to use them for your wedding décor, as photo props, as part of your menu or for what they are really meant to do…keep the sun away!

Parasols are very stylish and look great when you have an outdoor day time wedding. They are also light and easy to carry hence we suggest these for an outdoor wedding. You can just place them in a basket at the entrance with a little note and guests can help themselves when they arrive.

Parasols make lovely photo props as well as wedding décor props. We love this decorated parasol the bride is carrying…oh so pretty! It just adds on to the décor and is apt for a daytime outdoor mehendi function.

The floral borders and tassels on the parasol imparts an Indian touch to the western looking parasol.

Parasols can make the place look so pretty and add some colour to your wedding décor. You can choose from tons of options from plain bold colours to beautifully hand painted ones and even chic lace ones! Give your décor a traditional and funky touch with these hand embroidered rajasthani parasols. These are available in a variety of bright hues and can be incorporated as your table centre piece, stage backdrop or even as a photobooth prop. You can also use inverted parasols as lanterns and hang them from the ceiling – with or without lights.

It’s not too difficult to add mini parasols as garnishes to your wedding cocktails or even desserts like cupcakes.

Parasol seating cards…another great idea to keep the flow going and to add this prop in a small way to the décor. These mini parasols are worth capturing!

parasols used for table names

A personalized parasol is a great idea for keepsake…especially for thank you gifts. These can have the date of the wedding and your name or simply be wonderfully hand-painted ones.

If you simply love the combination of parasols and weddings, you can also use it as a theme for your wedding. Incorporate into your monogram and other wedding stationery.
