    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!

      I ordered Parasols for my wedding in November. I'm just using them for the pictures and not the actual ceremony.

        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..

                    since this is a subject that has already been discussed extensively, im going to close it and advise any future readers of this thread to use the search function for more advice on parasols.

                    thanks!
