Rain in the forecast might seem like the worst-case scenario for your wedding day, but did you know it's actually considered to be good luck? It's true—a wet knot is harder to untie than a dry one. If you want to be prepared for rain on your special day, picking out a stylish wedding umbrella is the perfect place to start. If it's shaping up to be more than just a drizzle, check out our guide to creating a backup plan for an outdoor wedding to ensure the dampness won't put a damper on the day.

Rain, of course, isn't the only reason you may want to incorporate umbrellas into your wedding. In some cultures and communities, umbrellas actually play an important role in the celebration. In a number of Indian and Hindu ceremonies, for example, colorful umbrellas or parasols are used to signify protection and royalty. In a New Orleans wedding, you might see umbrellas come into play during a tradition known as a 'second line', where the couple and guests parade from the ceremony to reception with decorated umbrellas and jazz music filling the air.

Whether you're preparing for rain, or a second line, we've got you *covered* with 18 of our favorite wedding umbrellas that will keep you dry and will look great in photos.
