Parasols?!? did you love them or hate them?

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies,

 

I am considering ordering parasols from Oriental Trading Company for my beach ceremony. Are you considering or have you used parasols for you service. Did they obscure guests views, create shadows in your pictures? Any advice/information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Jess, I am thinking of ordering just a few for myself and BM as well.. I don't think I would like pics with parasols randomly sprouted throughout.

I don't want to be a party pooper - but you should know the white parasols everyone buys from Oriental Trading are either out of stock or no longer available... but I thought you'd want to know b/c I've tried to order them recently from there myself!

I went all over that area!!... my OOT bags will be a hit.. those key chains 12 for $6.00..I am getting my pashminas for $25 for a dozen. I LOVE the wholesale district!! I am considering doing real touch flowers instead of the real deal because yesterday, I found some really great looking ones. Its just that their parasols look kinda suspect lol. If you ever want to get together and hunt for things for our weddings feel free to pm me! Also, I already have my dress, but if you need a second set of eyes and I am free I am game..

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
