    Hi ladies!

    I love the look of the paper parasols that some BM's are carrying instead of bouquets. I think it looks awesome and is cost effective as well! Anyways, our ceremony is on the beach and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with wind and if it is breezy, will it affect the umbrellas? They won't rip will they?

    Thanks in advance!

      oh, good question! I also plan on using paper parasols for the same reasons you mentioned, and I was wondering how sturdy they were too. I definitely plan on buying extras, just in case they get torn on the trip down.

        hi ladies...I used parasols for the bridesmaids; the ceremony was not on the beach but we took pictures on the beach and that day was very windy...the good thing is the parasols held up pretty good but the girls were having a hard time keeping the straight but it was hilarious. I say go for it.

            We used ours on the beach. It wasn't very windy, but I think they would have held up even if it was, they were pretty sturdy. I bought a few extras just in case they got damaged, but didn't have to use them. They looked great in my pics (and saved a ton of money)!

              I agree, they were very study...they held up really good packed in the suitcase too. The pictures with the parasols look great.

                  I used them - no problems. It wasn't really windy but they are much sturdier than you would think.

                    So, where did you girls get your parasols from? I was looking at some at Party Planning Ideas. Football Theme Party. Fall Party Ideas. Party Supplies because they are less than $4 a piece and they come in orange (my accent color). I would love to hear about some other options though (or feedback about party411).

                      I got mine from Luna Bazaar: www.lunabazaar.com. I think they were about $6 each.
