    I ask this question because I recentally got into a car accident(I'm ok) but I totaled my car and need to buy a new one, and still want to have my destination wedding so I'm trying to see where I can cut corners with the budget. I wanted to know if I put my girls in Parasols and but my Jr bridesmaid (8 yrs old) as a flower girl will that look ok. I will still have my Bouquet though (it's my wedding lol). Any suggestions please help!!!

          If you do a search for parasols, you get lots of returns.

            I'm doing parasols for my girls, and a bouquet and parasol for me (I'll only use my parasol for pics after the ceremony). It shaved a nice chunk off our budget and so far the girls really dig the idea if for no other reason than keeping the sun off of them:)

                  No bouquets here other than mine. Parasols all the way! Saved a ton and looked great!

                    I think parasols are a great idea, and talk about functional, too! They will stay cooler that way, and it will undoubtedly look great. :) try the search function, lots of the girls have used cute parasols. You could even try the FS threads-- maybe there are some for sale.
