I really hadn’t thought of the blocking effect. I haven’t been to a wedding where everyone had parasols, but my fiance has. He never mentioned not being able to see around them. Maybe it’s because of the way they are shaped? I suppose you could do big standing umbrellas throughout the chairs, but I like the parasols so much better if you can make them work!

I went to an outdoor wedding with parasols. I was sitting in the second row, so it wasn’t an issue for me. I didn’t hear any of the other guests complaining about it though, so I would assume it wasn’t an issue. I know that since I was in the front, I was conscious of others and held my parasol up high to try to minimize the blockage of other guests view.

How about palm fans. I was trying to find a photo I once saw of guests using their palm fans to block out the sun, but I haven’t found it yet. :o(
