wedding umbrella

Should the rain ruin my wedding? No way!

Imagine you have a wedding coming up and you are worried about what will happen when the rain comes. The date is set and you have no clue what will be the weather that day.

If you plan to have the wedding or the wedding party in nature, it could be very romantic, however, you cannot order the weather, altough you wish to.

What’s more – your expensive wedding dress is waiting for you and you probably do not plan to let them become wet and soiled.

Luckily we have good news! There exist wedding umbrellas in different designs and sizes so you can choose the right one for your BIG DAY!

Transparent umbrella

Weather is unpredictable, even on a wedding day

Let’s start with the probable best solution and my favourite for rainy wedding days: the bubble umbrellas – they are ideal as they can protect your whole head from rain, and they look very fancy and elegant.

They are usually semi-automatic (means the opening is automatic and closing need to be done manually) and usually have a plastic handle.

Due to their “dome” shape, they cover you very well and cannot be reversed in stronger wind.

You can buy them also in some colourful designs, however, we believe for the wedding purpose the transparent are universal and always look stylish. And a big plus can be the fact, they even look good in the wedding photos!

Wedding umbrella as a necessary accessory

When you look at the selection of the wedding umbrellas available you can see there is another special type of umbrellas – laced ones, which look so romantic and gentle and come in several different colours, but mainly in ivory, beige, and white.

The can surely protect you from the sun and complete your outfit, however, it does not protect yours from rain.

The lace umbrellas usually have long-handled and are usually manual, not fully-automatic.  The canopy material is mainly cotton and the handle is of wood.

If you look for some compact wedding umbrella so it could be easily stashed, we recommend the below one. As a plus, this one has a very stylish package, which looks like a small, laced bag (and nobody can see what is inside the bag, which could be a plus as well).

The right umbrella for the groom

Luckily there are a lot of umbrellas suitable for a groom (or you can just use a classic one if you don’t want to spend extra money on an extra umbrella).

The suitable umbrella should be reliable in the first place: big enough for 2 people to be romantically covered, windproof, and not so heavy, as such umbrellas are not suitable for longer usage. It also should be fully or semi-automatic, for comfort all over.

Another great idea about wedding umbrellas

Some brides and grooms decide they will prepare the umbrellas for the guests and put names on the umbrellas or the date of the wedding so guests have a nice souvenir from the wedding.

Or perhaps you’d enjoy the classic umbrellas bearing the name of the newly married couple. Nice idea, isn’t it? Everything is just about money, time and creativity.

The day is saved, just enjoy the wedding

As you can see, we offer a lot of interesting wedding umbrellas, so there is only one decision left – which one to choose so it fits your wedding dress or the concept of the wedding.

We wish you a nice time choosing your wedding umbrella!

    Amazing post. Before i read this, i had no idea that using beautiful or matching umbrellas during a wedding in the rain was even a thing. I find the laced design umbrella unique even though its not practical when it rains. And buying a suitable and matching umbrella doesnt have to cost a bomb as well. Cool.

      Hello Cheng,

      Thank you for your kind comment and for stopping by. Wedding umbrellas are a nice accessory and look also nice at the wedding photos. So no worry to use them if needed.

      Have a great time!

    It’s always good to be prepared. In our country, rain will just pour anytime. It could he super hot in the whole afternoon and come evening it will rain really hard. June is the month of weddings and getting these beautiful umbrellas may come in handy especially if pictorial is done outdoors. 

    Laced umbrellas are good props too for pictorial. It’s not bad having both! Sometimes, umbrellas are given away to guests as token for coming to the wedding celebration. The marrying couple would ask the supplier to engrave their names and date of the wedding in the handle. Some would prefer to print it in the leaves of the umbrella, itself.

    Thank you for sharing this cute idea. It should also be included on the “must” list of a wedding couple. Have a nice day!

    Hi, Renata.
    Your article took me into my memory lane as the same thing happened. We were wet on the wedding day as there was no sign of rain few moments before marriage.
    Out of three designs of umbrella described by you, I would love to have the Transparent one for my daughter’s marriage. So it made it to my shopping list.
    Thanks for the timely information, Renata.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

    Wedding umbrellas are useful, and I think even if a couple is expecting the weather to be in their favor, they should still have a wedding umbrella on hand. I actually think wedding umbrellas look cool and can be used as accessories, even if the weather is perfect. I like the idea of of using the umbrellas as souvenir giveaways to guests.

    • Renata

      Hello Nate,
      Thank you for your nice comment and stopping by. Yes, the umbrellas as souvenirs are a great idea, they could be very nice (and should not ruin the wedding budget as well). So have a great summer and in case you would need some wedding umbrellas, you know where to look.

    In my country, rain on your wedding day means a lucky marriage. What could be better than that right? lol

    We got married in early September and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we didn’t need umbrellas. But it is good to think about this when planning a wedding so you can be prepared for everything, especially when you have an outdoor ceremonial. I would definitely have some spare umbrellas on hand for the guests!

    I had this beautiful old-fashioned lace umbrella for photo shooting, it made the photos look amazing.

    thanks for your tips! 

    • Renata

      Hello Eva,
      Thank you for your insight! I absolutely agree the rain should be considered as a potential threat. Hopefully, we have provided tips, which could save the situation when the rain suddenly comes.
      Thank you again for stopping by and have a great summer!
      Bye Renata

    Hi Renata,

    I didn’t realise that there were so many different types of umbrellas. A wedding umbrella is a great idea, especially if you can get them personalised and monogrammed to commemorate the day. I want to a wedding once and the bride has white wellington boots, as the wedding was on a farm in the winter.

    • Renata

      Hello Tom,

      Thank you for your kind comment, is nice to hear an opinion from a man! And a wedding on a farm supposed to be quite adventurous, but still beautiful I believe. Thank you anyway for stopping by and have a great summer!

      Bye Renata

    My cousin is getting married next month and I was thinking about buying an umbrella for her as I know that she likes cute umbrellas.

    I had no idea that there was such thing as wedding umbrellas so I’ll definitely go for one of those…

    God, she is going to just love it! Add to cart!

    • Renata

      Hello Harry,
      Thank you for your kind comment! We definitely recommend this umbrella to have on the wedding so in case of sudden rain the guests remain dry as well as the bride and groom, otherwise, it is a great accessory anyway. Thank you for stopping by and wish you a great day of your cousin´s wedding!
      Bye Renata

    I think weather is something unforeseen for many who wish to have an outdoor wedding, but instead of rain being a curse, contingency plan with umbrellas is the perfect lifesaver. They make a cool accessory as well, which will probably enhance rather than spoil a wedding day. Transparent is the way to go; you just can’t go wrong with transparency. 

    • Renata

      Hello Todd,
      Thank you very much for your kind comment, the transparent bubble umbrellas are simply cute and so nice. We definitely recommend it for all future brides and grooms:). And are great as a gift as well! Have a great summer and thank you for stopping by! Bye Renata
