Wedding Umbrellas for Women

If you are planning to get married in Britain this Summer, you must know the climate is not to be trusted. You may be sure of sunny spells weeks before your wedding day, but it may be no surprise if you get poured on instead! Can you imagine the devastation of ruining those gorgeous bridal shoes and that dress you have been saving for months? Not to forget the fleet of bridesmaids squabbling in their wet attire and now messy hair-do's. Wedding Umbrellas are quite a lovely concept just for us brits purely for the weather fluctuation and it's inability to stay stable. 

Of course you want everything to be picture perfect that day, so umbrellas from WHSmith will unfortunately not cut the mustard. The Umbrella Shop is a family run business and has been supplying bridal umbrellas from years.They know what's required of that day and what will keep the bride, bridesmaids and guests happy that day hence their selection is impeccable and everything you have dreamt of. I quite like how their fancy umbrellas are almost like a style statement. They are so intricately designed and look so decadent that it almost merges with the outfit, instead of clashing with it. 

Whether it's via sparkly handles, domed designs, antique floral art print, pagoda style brollies, metallic gold material or splash love heart shaped umbrellas, each of them is selected for a wedding in mind. Choose one based on the theme of your wedding, your bridal dress and bridesmaids ensemble. Play around with a theme so if you are going for something like old Hollywood glamour, opt for a birdcage domed umbrella that's transparent and if it's a modern fairytale like theme you're into for your wedding, a pagoda style umbrella in frosted pink will make you look like a modern day Cinderella instantly, be it rain or shine. 

Seeing a few wedding pictures online, it's so adorable how couples are using wedding umbrellas in photo shoots. They picture brilliantly hence it's vital to invest in a special one that will look classic in photos even after decades. Most of the wedding umbrellas from The Umbrella Shop offer 95% UV protection so you don't have to worry about sun spots and age related pigmentation on your very special day! Their handles are sturdy and the fibreglass ribs offer flexibility and strength on those ridiculously windy days. 

The splash love square shaped wedding umbrellas I thought were a match made in heaven for the groom. In a masculine enough design and neutral shades of indigo, grey and white, it looks exclusive and would surely feel luxurious enough to match with that expensive wedding suit. So if you're planning a wedding this summer, amidst all the venue hunting and dress spotting dilemmas, don't forget to invest in a good old wedding umbrella to avoid ruining your special day.

Wow, that is actually a pretty great idea!!

I think it is even more necessary for us Indian girls, who could suddenly end up getting married in the pouring rain!

Now I need to go and find some Indian vendors who do the same.

I think even without rain, a decorative umbrella would be a great touch to any wedding outfit. Especially for the photoshoots!! :)
