    Also check out knottie bio: The Knot Message Boards her bm used parasols without any floral at all. Very inspirtational for me since I am trying to cut out as much floral as possible.

        I just got my parasols and chinese lanterns from Asian Ideas...

        Chinese Wedding Umbrellas
        White Paper Lantern, White Paper Lanterns, White Chinese Paper Lantern, Round White Lanterns

        I bought 8 large parasols, 12-12" chinese lanterns and 12-18" chinese lanterns. The total came to just over a hundred dollars and included shipping. The parasols are soooo cool! They are 42 inches in diameter and are the dramatic size I was looking for. I'm having these handed out to my guests as they enter the ceremony area. I only planned for one per couple since they're so huge!

          It's a craft store very similar to Joann's and Michaels. They are in the Midwest and South. I am from MI and we don't have them there but it's here in IL, the suburbs only

                Well, I have 24 chinese lanterns that I could leave at Dreams for you if Mariana will store them! I'm not sure if my guests will take their parasols home or not, but if you're interested in a couple I can ask if she'll keep those too!

                  oh i would LOVE that if you dont want to keep them- especially the parasols- i relaly just want at least 3 for pics.
                  but we are both doing the red roses- we could SO share costs on flowers if our dates were closer together. i am still deciding about flowers- i know bouquets we are going with dreams. are you doing boutineres for the boys? what about for the moms?

                    I'll check with Mariana- if she'll hold them for you...

                    I know- we could have totally shared flowers! I'm not doing bouts for the boys or dads or corsages for the moms. We just decided it wasn't necessary and they didn't care anyway. It's such a small wedding that it just doesn't seem necessary. If we bought flowers for the parents, the wedding party, and the "master and mistress of ceremonies", that would only leave like 5 people NOT wearing flowers- just seemed silly to me!

                      yeah i think we are deciding to only have flowers for me, the bridesmaids, and matt. flowers are so overpriced and i just cant bring myself to spend a lot on them!
