It was pouring rain in Niagara yesterday when I started to write this post. And now that we are in mid-September we can expect more rain. But don’t be discouraged if you have planned a fall wedding. Umbrellas and rain gear can be fabulous props for wedding photos and can add some fun and light to a rainy day. And, if you live in an area that sees a lot of sun, consider a parasol for you and your ladies. They are delightful!

These colourful paper parasols make a striking contrast against the greenery and white of the ceremony and will be very happily received by your guests if you are having an outdoor wedding that guarantees sun! Photo by Clouthier Photography from the blog Longwood Brides. If you want custom parasols or umbrellas check out styles and colours at Bella Umbrella or Beau Coup. Many others sites for purchasing parasols and umbrellas in your area on the internet.

So don’t be discouraged like Eeyore with the weather! Rain or shine you will have a lovely wedding day!

All the best! Jordin
