Parasols to Canada?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about doing parasols for my outdoor wedding on the beach and have all my bridesmaids carry one instead of a bouquet. Is anyone nervous or concerned that they will tear or not be sturdy enough due to the wind or something? Are people just using them for photos or ceremony as well?

 

Thank you so much for all your feedback!

i never did. after going through more of this thread, i checked out a lot of the sites and the shipping was either WAY too expensive or there was no guarantee of  them arriving in less than a week.  

 

I did email www.weddingfavours.ca and they got back to me two days later to say i can come pick up the parasols but its better if i place the order online first so they keep it in stock. and they didn't have all the colors i wanted (they had white but no purple).  And i would have wanted to reply and ask how it would work with not paying shipping fees since that is required with online orders - but i didn't have time to wait two more days for a reply!

 

however, someone else gave me the idea to go look in China town for parasols. so since i have today and tomorrow until my AHR, i am going to do that. if not, i guess i won't have them!

I'm struggling with this issue as well.  I'm thinking of checking out authentic chinese malls or even Chinatown for these.  Will talk to my mother about some intel and if I find some on the cheap, I will let you brides know!!

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
