Parasols for your guests during ceremony

Recommended Posts

So I bought parasols from Paper Umbrellas Colored for my guests to use during the ceremony. Ironically, several of my guests hate the sun (ex. my mom, my grandmother, a few aunts...). I'm putting out raffia fans on every other chair, but I'm not sure how to display the paper parasols for my guests. Any thoughts/ideas?

I don't recall who, but someone had them at the back end up the chair aisles, kinda like an umbrella basket, so the guests could take as needed. But laying them across the chairs would work as well!

Thanks Alyssa! I was thinking of putting them in a container for the guests to pick up if they wanted, but I seriously doubt they would even see them...and at $4 a piece, I wanted to make sure they were used HAHAHAHA!.

i don't blame you - that is a lot of money! do you think all the guests will need them or just the women?

just the women...I just want people to know it's there. Maybe I can tell my mom about it and then she can start it off by using it.

I had someone give them to my guests.. I didn't buy enough but the sun was horrible that day and the hotel had red and white regular umbrellas so they gave those to the guests and the parasols to my bridesmaids

At work, as always! lol


I had them leaning against every other chair- I figured it would be primarily the women that used them...

I'm trying to remember where I saw the picture, but someone had them suck in the sand along the aisle so guests could grab them as they were seated.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
