Parasol Paraphernalia

Like many other bees before me, I knew I wanted to incorporate my adorable Weddingbee moniker into my wedding somehow. Although I had contemplated using parasols in my wedding prior to becoming a bee, I hadn’t made any final decisions on that front. But since then, I’ve found a few fun ways to weave my Weddingbee identity into my special day.

First, I bought two ridiculously cheap paper parasols for guests to use as props in our homemade photo booth. That way, they can be honorary members of the Parasol Clan.

I also splurged a little and bought a much nicer lace parasol for myself.

I really couldn’t resist this beauty, and thankfully, it was significantly more cost effective than other lace parasols I had seen online (some of which ran upwards of $100!). It’s so beautiful and romantic, and it reminds me of my favorite Weddingbee icon, especially when opened.

See the resemblance? I love it!

And finally, I acquired the most adorable little parasol charm for an absolute steal on eBay. It’s so small and dainty, and even though it doesn’t look like much, I think it is my favorite parasol-related purchase.

I plan on attaching this cute little charm to my wedding bouquet so that I’ll be able to carry a parasol with me throughout the entire day. I also like the idea of keeping this charm and using it for a necklace after the wedding. There are some pretty adorable parasol necklaces on Etsy that have me drooling (like this one).

What personal touches are you adding to your wedding day?
