Red Umbrella - Plain Lace Trims
*A MUST-HAVE for all brides on the Wedding Day!

When the bride leaves her home with the groom to his house, a "Good Luck Woman" or the bride's father will hold a red umbrella over her head, meaning "raise the bark, spread the leaves." 

This "Good Luck Woman" should be someone who is blessed with a good marriage, healthy children and husband and grandchildren.

The umbrella signifies shielding the bride from evil spirits and the color of the umbrella must be red as it signifies good luck and prosperity.
The umbrella must not be a fold-able type as a whole umbrella means the couple will be together till the end of time. 

Opening of the umbrella signifies the bride's ability to bear children for the family.
