    My ceremony is going to be outside in August, so I plan to have these parasols available for my guest. I ordered these in the coral color. They're very sturdy and nice. I'm a little disappointed, however, because they're more orange than coral, but I got them on sale for a very good price, so they'll do.

    Colors aren't exactly as pictured on screen. I got the Cobalt and they aren't that vibrant, I got the light blue which look only ok, and the Coral which are more orange looking. I got the Ivory for myself and it looks like dirty white.

    Overall they'll serve their purpose which is photos on the golfcourse.

    Make sure you don't break them when you open and close, if you push too hard the part that keeps it open will break.

        I needed a bit of shade for some elderly family members and a parasol fit the ticket.
        Now I am coming back for more. I think they will be a hit among the ladies.

        Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop paper parasol:

        The parasol is crafted well; however, the cobalt color is way off. Taking into consideration that monitor colors are to be used a general guideline and the other reviews of other color inaccuracies, I took a risk and purchased the cobalt parasol.
        The cobalt is not blue. Nor is it a royal blue, or bright or vibrant as cobalt should be. It has more green in it than blue. The color is teal. So if you are looking for a teal blue-green parasol, this one's for you.

          The colors were beautiful and vibrant, just what I wanted! I have read some people's posts that complain about the color not matching~a word to the wise, every computer monitor differs when seeing colors so the colors will not be exact from screen to screen. Mine were beautiful!

            Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop paper parasol:

            I ordered one white and one ivory parasol to match to the color of my dress (very light ivory). The white one is exactly as expected; however, the ivory parasol is more of a buttercup yellow and the top is orange (center where the bamboo spokes and handle come together). I'll be using the white one as it works with a white or light ivory dress but the ivory one is terrible and will be sent back - even if the ivory color wasn't so yellow the orange top kills the look. Overall the quality is decent for the price - the white one works flawlessly but the ivory gets stuck when opening and closing so functionality might be hit or miss.

                  Comments about The Knot Wedding Shop paper parasol:

                  My sister used the yellow paper parasols for her wedding and the pictures looked beautiful. So I was extremely disappointed when I ordered the CORAL parasols and they were undeniably orange. They even say Orange on the label. I feel that I was misled, especially because coral is a very popular color, and these were clearly just orange products pushed to be made more marketable.

                      I ordered one lavender umbrella to use in my engagement photos. The color is perfect, maybe a touch darker than in the photos. I think the photos make the umbrella look more like fabric, but it actually is paper. The parasol is easy to open and durable. Pricing is very reasonable. We got some great shots with this as one of my props! I am ordering additional colors for my purple and white wedding next month!

                      One con, delivery can be quite slow from this website.

                      I ordered these in 5 colors. I got lavender, yellow, green, (teal)blue, and coral. All but the color of the coral were perfect!! I have read in previous reviews that many people would agree that the coral is a more orange color. It is true...the sticker that came on my "coral" parasol said ORANGE. Just keep that in mind when you order that color.

                            I bought one on sale to see if I would like it but I was a little disappointed. I ordered the cobalt color. The top of the parasol is ok but where the handle is all of the support wood is it's tan natural color. This is a stark contrast to the blue. None of it was colored blue to match the parasol paper. As long as people only see the top of it then it's okay. I think I will try spray painting the wooden support system and the wooden spokes and see how that turns out.

                            I do think it is sturdy enough for an outdoor wedding (as long as it doesn't rain of course). My problems were mainly aesthetic.

                              My ceremony is going to be outside in August, so I plan to have these parasols available for my guest. I ordered these in the coral color. They're very sturdy and nice. I'm a little disappointed, however, because they're more orange than coral, but I got them on sale for a very good price, so they'll do.

                                I am going to use the parasols for my destination wedding in Destin FL. They are perfect for the beach, and i got them when they were on sale and so the value for the money is incredible. They are still worth the [$] regular price, but since i was on a budget, i wouldnt have purchased them at that price. But they are sturdy. I got the tiffany blue and white. I wanted coral but they were sold out of that when i ordered, so i purchased white and sprey painted them with Coral Isle Krylon Spray Paint. They turned out great. I love these things.

                                  We purchased these for our Vintage wedding this August. I was super excited and couldn't wait anymore. The parasols are PERFECT and beyond what we expected. The paper of the parasols is super steady and very good material.

                                  Would recommend it.!

                                  I ordered the cobalt parasol to use in my photos. The color is a beautiful bright blue - exactly what I wanted and expected. The parasol is in great shape and opens/closes easily. I would recommend waiting to order until they go on sale.

                                    I ordered these for my bridesmaids to carry during my destination wedding. They arrived in perfect condition, and I am so excited to include them in our beachside ceremony.

                                    Really disappointed with the quality of this product. They are not well made. They also dye the parasols and the wooden part at the top of the parasol gets stained as well and it looks grungy. They dye on the paper part of the parasol looks really shotty. It's streaky, doesn't look even at all. It's very obvious that it's been dyed and it's not even dyed well. Just save your money and go else where!

                                          The handle is a nice bamboo. I ordered the purple umbrellas. The color wasn't consistent throughout the paper. It tended to lighten towards the outside edge. It made them look a little cheap in my opinion. I ended up spray painting the paper on the umbrella so that the color was more consistent. I added a little shimmer of glitter too. It was time-consuming but turned out very pretty.

                                            Colors aren't exactly as pictured on screen. I got the Cobalt and they aren't that vibrant, I got the light blue which look only ok, and the Coral which are more orange looking. I got the Ivory for myself and it looks like dirty white.

                                            Overall they'll serve their purpose which is photos on the golfcourse.

                                            Make sure you don't break them when you open and close, if you push too hard the part that keeps it open will break.

                                                I bought two of these parasols, one in sage green and one in yellow, so I could compare the colors to use as gifts for my bridesmaids in place of bouquets. Both the handle length and the diameter/circumference of the parasol when open are perfect, not too small but also not oversized for fitting through the doorway of the open-air pavilion of my outdoor ceremony.

                                                Because of how thin the paper is, the sage green is about as pictured on the description, but the yellow comes off as being more of a pale butter shade. This works out well for my wedding colors, and I'm glad I didn't get ivory instead. They're a little stiff the first time you open them, but very sturdy and as well-made as any I've ever seen at Asian gift stores.

                                                The one negative - there's a spot about an inch across on the green parasol that looks like the paper might have had a hole patched before being dyed. As a result, the outside of the spot is much darker green and the center is almost white. It's probably not big enough to really notice from a distance, yet I might not want to use that individual one as a gift. I had thought about using acrylic paints to add a flower pattern on the parasols, but I've since decided against this because of the slightly waxy texture of the paper and the way it folds. I'll probably add a ribbon instead around the top of the handle if I want the parasols to have any more decoration.

                                                I was worried that they wouldn't be good quality.. I was WRONG! They're great! The paper is great nice and durable, its super cute, intricate threading inside... I'm buying more!
