    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?

      Leia - i suggest laying them diagonally across the seat of your chairs!

        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.
