Morning all! How have we been this week?! Another busy one here at FAB and there are a few changes on the way but we will keep you up to date as always! My nice plan for the weekend is to do nothing but enjoy being at home for the first weekend in a long time and for the last weekend in our beautiful home in Clare. We sadly have to move in a few weeks and I’m not looking forward to it one bit. Anyway, back to today and before we move on to our FAB 5 and consider umbrellas at weddings, lets have a look at what’s been happening this week.

Friday's FAB 5 ✈ Umbrellas at Weddings

On Monday we had some bicycle wedding inspiration for those of you who enjoy the hobby. I must admit, this theme brought back some unwanted memories from my leaving cert, I couldn’t get Patrick Kavanagh and his bicycles going by in two’s and three’s  out of my head! On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of sharing one fine and elegant wedding from the smoky mountains of Tennessee. On Wednesday, we had a surprise engagement in beautiful Rome. Yesterday then we were in beautiful Mexico for a wedding on the beach which brings us nicely to today, Friday.

Friday's FAB 5 ✈ Umbrellas at Weddings

Maybe not the most weather appropriate post this morning given the beautiful sunny weather (you’d never think that there was such terrible flooding around Ireland earlier this week) but I love umbrellas and wellies and own lots of them… in all sorts of colours…. em,  and they all match! It’s part of living in Ireland and the weather we get, when you can’t beat it, join it kind of attitude I suppose! Anyway, today’s post was really inspired by this beautiful wedding by Christina Brosnan. I love that this couple took on the weather and still had their out door wedding in the rain. I also really love the umbrellas and how they add to their beautiful pictures. Umbrellas also make beautiful props, hanging upside down from the roof and just like the bicycle theme on Monday, you could really use them as a motif through out your wedding day, on your invitations, napkins, mini umbrellas in drinks and so on. I will admit, it’s hard to find pretty umbrellas so I’ve rounded up 5 of my favourite from the Cath Kidston and Lisbeth Dahl ranges in the hope that it might inspire you to embrace the umbrella.

      Aren’t they so pretty! We are forever trying to get away from the rain but sure, we might as well make the most of it!
