This and That {the latest giveaways + bridal umbrellas}

It's been a while since I've posted a This and That so I decided today was the day to share with you some of the latest contests {besides my currently weekly giveaway} that I think you might like to know about. But, first, here's a brand new wedding product that's just been released from Cheeky Umbrella. They are a manufacturer of unique rain umbrellas and in the new spring product line up are two bridal umbrellas. The wedding umbrellas are designed to bring a smile to the bride's face on a rainy wedding day with their beautiful white and silver designs and a "cheeky" statement written on the underside (such as "Rain or shine, that guy is mine" and "It’s a bridal shower!"). You can see more about the wedding umbrellas here.
