Parasol or umbrella

To shield your guests from the sun, put some pretty parasols or umbrellas in a basket or place one next to each assigned seat. Find a parasol that matches your wedding theme and decorations; a vintage-style parasol made of lace would be perfect for an elegant wedding by the sea, while colorful parasols can add a more fun ambience.
