For Fun and Function
Cheap parasols are one of those details that can change the whole look of your wedding day – for the better. They can be whimsically fun or classically elegant. Whatever mood you are trying to strike with them, make sure you aren’t paying more than you need to for them.
Wedding parasols have become increasingly popular among budget brides (and every other kind of bride) simply because of the bang per buck factor. Not only can they take the place of more expensive items, but they give your overall decor an incredible pop. You can choose to just have a few, or have enough for all of your guests. Either way, cheap parasols are sure to have everyone oooooohing and ahhhhhing.
They come in different sizes and are available in a lot of gorgeous colors, but for those of you not wanting to be too “matchy matchy” with your wedding colors or are afraid you won’t compliment the color scheme quite right, you really can’t go wrong by sticking with plain white or ivory.
Not only can wedding parasols serve as part of the decor, but they can also shield the sun for your guests and your bridesmaids on a blazing day.
Wedding parasols can help accentuate your decor, as well as set the entire mood and theme of your wedding.
If you are having your ceremony and want to save a truckload of money by using these paper pretties? Have your bridesmaids carry them instead of flowers. Brilliant! AND gorgeous and unique!
Let’s assume now that you have everything you want when it comes to the nuts and bolts of the actual wedding and reception, but you would like something fun and unique for your pictures. What amazing photo opportunities these babies give you!
Now that I have planted the wedding parasol seed in your budget bride mind, you want to know where you can get cheap parasols for your big day. Have no fear, the obsessive online wedding researcher is here. Not too terribly long ago, I stumbled across a couple websites that I have become completely obessed with. Obsessed I tell you! Gorgeous wedding eye candy and at prices you literally won’t believe. I’ve narrowed down the selection based on variety, ease of purchase (don’t have to buy a bazillion) and, of course, price.Luna Bazaar is a fabulous online source for a plethora of wedding wants and needs, particularly parasols. *Use code tinybudget5 for 5% off any order through 8/31!* You may remember that site from the cheap paper lanterns page. You won’t find better quality, selection or prices anywhere else. Except for maybe at Asian Ideas, another shining star on the web that is a mouse click away from making you squeal with wedding planning delight.
Wedding parasols are an emerging trend that, I believe, will turn into a mainstay simply based on their functionality combined with beautiful decor possibilities. And what budget bride doesn’t want something in her wedding that serves more than one purpose?!
