    I voted for parasols. They are hip and the new "bouquet." I think you should get any bouquet your heart desires for yourself. You will save tons of money!!

        Thanks for all of your responses! I am definitely going with the parasols for my girls and a beautiful bouquet for me!

          I have an idea, is it possible to order from the Jamaican florist you know nothing about so that you (hopefully) get the flowers you want, but then also get the parasols as a back up in case the flowers are a no show. I know it's a lot of money to spend - I just thought it might solve all your problems. Best case, your bridesmaids have both bouquets for the ceremony and parasols for the pictures. If not, just go with the parasols - I love that idea.

            You can order just the stems and put them together yourself or have a florist in your area put them together. That's what I'm doing since she didn't have time to make them. It cost me about 2/3 of the price for just the stems than for the full services from her.

              I was thinking of doing that too, but decided just to forgo the flowers. I feel like if I order from the Jamaican florist, I'll be stressing out while I'm down there about them. Thanks for the suggestion though!

                True! And we don't need you stressing about ANYTHING the day of your wedding. The parasols are going to be PERFECT!!!! I can't wait to see your pics.

                  I think #3. The BM's are going to hold those flowers for the ceremony, and then who knows what they'll do with them after that... Go for the parasols.

                      Lizz - I was going to suggest the florist I used, but if you think you're going to stress about flowers, go with the parasols! They will be absolutely beautiful! My florist had great flowers, but I didn't have them do the arrangements so I couldn't give a full on recommendation on that front.

                      No worries - the parasols will be fantastic and I love it as a different twist for a DW :)
