This wedding stays true to its peacock-theme, down to the color of the parasols.
The colorful, lacy parasols complete the 50’s vibe of this wedding. They also add a dressy touch to bridal and bridesmaid dresses that are short to mid-length.
Don’t forget to provide your guests with parasols during the ceremony to shield them from the rays of the sun while you say your vows.
You can opt for colorful umbrellas instead if you’re getting hitched in a tropical country, where it’s either rainy or sunny.
Fans to Combat Sweaty Moments
You wouldn’t like beads of sweat showing on your wedding photos, would you? The guests wouldn’t like that either. Do everyone a favor and provide fans, which can also double as your wedding favor.

Think outside the box. You don’t need to buy real fans to help your guests cool down. Print your program on stiffer paper and attach a handle. Voila! An instant fan.
How can the guests appreciate your outdoor ceremony if they’re squinting from the bright rays of the summer sun? Sunglasses will come in handy for the occasion. Plus, they look cool in the bridal party photos no matter what theme you choose.
