Parasols Know How To Party
Another one of our favorite resources is Pamela’s Parasols. According to owner and designer Pamela Noxon, “In ancient times parasols were considered magical and were enjoyed only by royalty.” With Pamela’s help, today’s royalty—the bride and groom—can indulge in the same noble and mystical tradition.
Parasols can be ordered plain or with all sorts of trimmings—jewels, silk flowers, beads or even ostrich feathers. Having a beach wedding? A natural accompaniment is the “Island Girl,“ fringed with real seashells; for your garden wedding, twirl a parasol blooming with cheerful daisies.
You can even monogram your parasol, or have it printed with a sentiment such as “love” or “romance” in graceful calligraphy. Browsing the imaginative options at Pamela’s Parasols may even inspire your overall wedding vision.
If you want to get your color-coordinated parasols just right, take advantage of Pamela’s custom color matching service so that bridesmaids’ gowns will harmonize exactly with their handy fashion accessory. Pamela’s Parasols also offers rice paper and bamboo fans, which can be given to guests in an elegant satin bag for warm summer celebrations. Stamp them with your initials or wedding date, and the fans double as wedding favors.
In the hands of today’s bride, a vivacious umbrella or pretty parasol makes a personal statement of cutting-edge wedding style. What an innovative way to have your wedding “made in the shade!”
