Rain, Rain, Go Away

Well, it's been rainy and cold in Denver lately. Today is shaping up to be relatively sunny, but, brrrrrrr! This weather is definitely an indication that Fall is here and we are very close to winter.

I'm okay with it raining in Denver when I read this morning that Keystone got 17 inches of snow in the last 48 hours. I am so not ready for the snow yet. Definitely not before Halloween. If it's between rain or snow, I say, bring on the rain!

If you ever watched The Bachelor, then you probably know of Jason and Molly. Although Jason picked Melissa in the final rose ceremony, he had a change of heart and secretly kept in touch with Molly well after the proposal. Romantic? Maybe someone somewhere thinks so. Regardless, Molly and Jason had a very public, very gorgeous wedding not too long after the show aired. Although ABC flipped the bill, there was nothing the network could do about the stormy clouds and buckets of rain pourind down throughout the ceremony...

A semi-crisis at the time, guests were given adorable, clear umbrellas to keep them dry from Mother Nature's wrath. The loveliness of the umbrellas sparked a trend at many weddings - keeping dainty umbrellas on-hand to protect guests and the bridal party from wind, rain, and blinding sunshine.

The color! The style! The vintage throwback!

We love this trend at Classic Creations, and are all about hopping on the umbrella bandwagon. But finding a  vintage-looking umbrella, or even a fun, colorful umbrella, is can fare a little bit harder then searching through your parent's garage. Check the trunk of any car and you're bound to return with an umbrella fit for a college-tailgate or shameful walk from car to grocery store.

So, we've scouted out some of the most appropraite and colorful umbrellas for you! Your best bet? Probably Bella Umbrella. They sell a mix of Vintage (one of a kind!) umbrellas, as well as Signature Bella Umbrellas.
