It's raining, it's pouring...

Although you would be hard pressed to find a bride hoping for rain on her wedding day, sometimes nature happens. To err on the side of caution, Spring brides are often encouraged to have back up plan after back up plan and to have an umbrella handy.

In the spirit of Spring showers (& not to mention my affinity for rain - yes, I am a Westcoast girl), I wanted to highlight some of the weddings that have used umbrellas in a practical-yet-stylish fashion. After all, if an umbrella is going to be in your wedding shots, you may as well have some fun with it.

Don't they make you want a vintage style parasol?

I really enjoy the following use of umbrellas in event decor: a perfect (& quite literal) option for a shower.

Aw, I'm glad you all like these umbrella-toting brides. I completely agree - not something you want to plan for but often times inevitable (especially where I live)!

bridalhood: that wedding was fantastic. Thank you for the link. I'm in love with the brides' bare feet and the photography.
