Umbrellas and Parasols – The latest Indian wedding craze!

Gone are the days when umbrellas were only used at weddings during monsoon or for outdoor functions, particularly on sunny days. Umbrellas and parasols are quite a rage at Indian weddings. Whether it is a pre-wedding shoot, an engagement party or a wedding, brides are going gaga over these, and they have started to become a permanent fixture at functions.


Here are some dulhans or to-be-dulhas who aced their game in photographs by using umbrellas in the most unique way possible:


1. The phoolwaali chhatri

This umbrella with big, bright pink and purple flowers is sober and goes well with the outfits, moreover, it is best to have an elegant umbrella with pastel colours especially if the function is during the day.


4. Lavender parasol

This bride has a bit of lavender in her outfit, the reason being her lavender parasol with a flower design on it, is a flawless match. This prop adds the extra fun and ‘masti’ in the picture, not to miss her priceless expression.


5. Embroidered umbrellas

This picture is no short of a colour pallette, with an array of bold colours not only on the outfit but also on the primary element- the umbrellas. The embroidery on the umbrella adds to the traditional ‘desi’ touch.


6. Japanese theme

Here, the bride is exclusively showing off a pretty pink parasol, while the rest are seen with Japanese fans, assuming that must be the theme.


7. Red and white

The lehenga of the bride and the dual-coloured umbrellas look like a match made in heaven. The photograph is riveting in a unique way and we can’t get our eyes off it!

This set-up looks straight out of a cute and chic fairy tale. The white lace umbrellas decorated with baby pink and white flowers is gorgeous, fresh and young. The idea of glass bottles hanging from the top and curtains with pastel shades, adds to the cozy and warm look.
