That first one with the cherry blossoms is really pretty!  How were you planning on laying them out?  I think your FI is right tho and guys probably wouldn’t use it, they’d use a program or something instead.  I’d probably go with just having enough for half the guest to use.

I agree with having them for the women only. If you haev that for the ladies what would the guys’ favors be?

The first one is gorgeous.  I would have them only for the women and have a few extras on hand.  I know my SO wouldn’t use a fan, he would think it was too girly….lol.

I got enough fans for the ladies.  I really don’t think the guys would use them unless they have a true flair for the dramatic Wink.  Our actual favors will be sake sets that will be used for our toast.

I originally looked at the Cherry Blossom fans.  I saw these, which are a hybrid of the two you posted.  They’re very inexpensive, too.  89 cents per fan.

We’re not doing programs.  We are having a civil ceremony that will only last 20 minutes at most.  If your ceremony has a lot of elements, I would say that a program does help.  It sounds like yours will be less formal though.

I’ve only been to one ceremony that had a program. It’s definitely not “needed.” I might do them if I have time, but I’m definitely not stressing about them.

I think bubbles are great! Actually, theknot.com has some on sale right now for $8/50 and if you type in the code knotbff at the checkout thingy you get an exra 20% off. But I like the bubbles you picked out, that’s just in case you want slightly larger ones or something!

We are doing paper program fans – knock 2 birds with one stone. And yes, we are only providing half the amount of our total guests, thinking that the men will not use the fans.

I don’t know… if it was hot enough my hubby would want a fan. Even if it’s pink. He hates the heat!

We didn’t do programs. I like looking at them, but I always end up trashing them and I decided it’s not worth my time or money.

I agree with artbee, I’m sure if it’s hot enough, there will be men that would appreciate a fan!

Just my personal opinion, I think programs are a waste of money and end up getting thrown away by 98% of the guests.
