- Wedding: August 2011
Hello everyone! Wondering if you could give me some advice. After going to a million florists, I’ve found their prices to be pretty outrageous (in my opinion). Because FI and I are paying for the wedding ourselves, and we want to save money but still have a cute, memorable wedding, we’re thinking more nontraditional props like parasols or pinwheels. We’re only looking at parasols or pinwheels for the wedding party. I think pinwheels are ADORABLE and cerainly unique but I wouldn’t want to distract from the people in the photos. And parasols are great in pictures but would they be distracting during the ceremony?
What do think–would you do it? What would you want to see at a wedding (or have at yours!)? Thanks for your opinions!!
Here’s the pinwheels from a seller on Etsy:
If you scroll down on this one, you can see an image of both at a ceremony.
And here are pictures of parasols:
