    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!!
