Since we’re in the weird, transitionary phase in the journey of wedding planning, I’ve been scouring the net for inspiration photos to add to my increasingly gigantic collection of what I like to call my “wedding look.” I’ve gathered enough inspiration that I think we’ve solidified the overall vision and over-arching theme for the day, which gives me more time to focus on things like meaningless (albeit breathtaking) details.
Like, for example, umbrellas.
Umbrellas have no significant meaning to me other than keeping my curly hair in check on rainy days–I don’t have an umbrella collection, I don’t know every song ever written about umbrellas, and I don’t dream about umbrellas when I go to bed at night. But stick them in a wedding scenario, and z’omg, they’re GORGEOUS.
If I think about it closer to the wedding day, I’m really considering renting a sweet, romantic, lace umbrella from Bella Umbrella, an online umbrella rental company that specializes in vintage wedding umbrella rentals. Most of the more ornate umbrellas are $20 to rent, and you get it for 5 days. I’ve got my eye on this one:
Is it a necessary purchase? Nope. Will it have a huge impact on the wedding day? Not a chance.
Will it provide an opportunity for some freakin’ sweet wedding photos? You betcha!
Are you currently obsessed about a random “wedding day” item that really has no effect on the wedding itself? Are you drooling over the uber romantic photo ops with wedding umbrellas like I am? Has anyone been a Bella Umbrella customer and could share their experience?
