There are things you can control on your wedding day, such as your reception playlist, your vows and your catering menu. But the weather is one factor you can't control (as much as we'd all like to). If Mother Nature has planned for rain on your wedding day, we recommend incorporating wedding umbrellas into the nuptials. While rainy weather may not be your ideal situation, there are many chic umbrellas and parasols that keep you comfortable and dry on your day. (Plus, they're stylish!) We've rounded up 23 wedding umbrellas that will add a romantic touch to your pictures.

Finally, if your wedding has the possibility of being affected by stormy weather, it's best to ensure that your venue has a wedding backup plan. That way, if the weather does take a turn, you'll be covered. Literally. Otherwise, here are the cutest wedding umbrellas you can buy right now.
