A Pretty Parasol
A parasol is the perfect accessory for the romantic bride, nostalgic of Antebellum garden parties and floaty ball gowns. It will also keep fair skin as white as a wedding dress and by adding a personalized monogram in blue like this one, it can also serve as your something blue for your big day.

Gentle Blue ClusterA traditionally shaped bouquet becomes more unexpected with a profusion of blues, including azure miniature irises, and a variety of textures. Muscari resembles small bunches of grapes; feathery scilla in the palest blue gives a sense of delicacy. The picot-edge bow reflects the flowers' wispiness.
