I had considered parasols. I thought they'd be so pretty and give the girls some shelter from the sun. But, I was concerned about the wind. I think some times of year may be windier than others. I thought they'd be so pretty but on our first visit to Aruba (May?) the wind was really strong (strong enough to knock over full wine glasses). However when we were there for our wedding at the very end of October the wind was much more tame. Has anyone else used parasols in Aruba? I'm sure I would have liked them much more than the bridesmaid bouquets we ended up with.
