Perfectly Pretty Parasols from Bella Umbrella

Remember the umbrellas from this wedding I featured last week? Well, a lot of you wanted to know where to get them, so here is the scoop! Bella Umbrella was founded by owner Jodell Egbert when she started collecting vintage umbrellas in 1999 on her Parisian honeymoon – today her collection numbers around 300! Her venture is now the largest source of vintage and vintage styled umbrellas in the world. The best part is you can purchase or rent umbrellas. The rental period is 5 days long and all umbrellas come with a prepaid return shipping label so you can just drop them in the mail when the festivities are done – how easy is that?

Vintage Bella
Bella Umbrella offers a collection of over five hundred, one-of-a-kind vintage umbrellas from the early twentieth century. These are actual rain umbrellas that were made in the 1920’s to the 1960’s. Each one is different in color and personality.

Signature Bella
Jodell has also designed and developed her own line of umbrellas – The Signature Bella Pagoda umbrella. “The Pagoda category was the most popular umbrella on the website” she says “and the brides would always ask me for multiples of a particular color or print.” So, Jodell set out to design pretty, feminine umbrellas like they used to make in the 1930-1950’s. The Signature Bella Pagoda Umbrella is uniquely designed and made of the finest quality parts. There are plenty of canopy and handle color combinations you can mix and match.

Incorporating umbrellas for your wedding
For guests – Choose a variety of umbrellas to distribute to your guests as they arrive at your outdoor venue. They then can stroll around in comfort on a hot day or be stylishly protected from the rain as they enjoy the ceremony.

For the wedding party – Color coordinate umbrellas with your wedding day fashions for fun photos.
