Weddings with Fans & Parasols

I loved this post on Manolo so much that I decided to carry on the theme here. An outdoor summer wedding is all about enjoying the season, and keeping cool. What better way than to outfit the bridal party and even the guests with some pretty fans or colorful parasols to keep cool! As Twistie points out, “there’s nothing wrong with not using flowers for your hand-held accessories. Many a bride and bridesmaid down the ages has carried a fan, a parasol, a prayer book, or nothing at all in her hands.” They’re useful, pretty, and make a great prop for photos!

Here are some pictures, compliments of Manolo:
