If you're not superstitious or your family members are not superstitious, just disregard this.
I was considering using parasols for my bridal party and brought it up to the family. I, personally, am NOT superstitious, but I have family members who are. Apparently parasols can harbour "ghosts", so many Chinese people do not take umbrellas or parasols with them when traveling. It's symbolic of bad luck, especially if the parasols are white. Just a heads up, ladies.
