So we’re making fan programs…small guest list @ 50 including the groom and I. The bridal party is 20 people large including ushers, flower girl, ring bearer, officiant/friend etc, bride and groom.
So, those in the bridal party all for the most part have counterparts that will be sitting during the ceremony…so about 30 people.
So should we make 50 for everyone…or 30 for only those sitting which if they want to save for a memento between themselves and their partners or families they’d really only want 1?
Or be safe and do maybe 35?
They’re a pain to make but it’s not that bad and we’re already at 25. We also don’t want a bunch of them lying around looking wasteful and unwanted…yah know? But then again, we don’t want anyone to go without if they reaaaally wanted one…plus they double as a fan and it is a June wedding in CA.

I’d make one per couple, or per individual if they are not in a couple, if that makes sense.
If that number is the same as people sitting – perfect! If it’s lower, I think you should make a few extra to bring it up to the number of people sitting. I don’t think you need to make 1 per person. There will be plenty of people (mainly guys, I would assume) who won’t want one to fan themselves.

I’d make one for everyone who will be sitting, plus a couple extra as keepsakes.

This is actually a great question, I have been wondering the same thing for my wedding. We will have about 80ish people for the ceremony at max so I am thinking of making around 50 since not everyone will take one and most couples only take one each.. I would go with the 30 just to be safe.

@geekspice: Great! That’s what we were thinking too. Just wanted a second opinion 🙂 Thanks!! Just finished the last 10 🙂 🙂

@mkelove: Yeah just thinking about FI and I as guests, we’d only want to take one home for a keepsake…so I figure our guests will probably feel the same. 🙂 LESS WORK for us!

We’re making programs and since there is 10 in the wedding party, I’ll make 110 (our limit is 120) and place each one on each seat.

I made one for every two people. There are some childrens guests who are getting activity books instead so there’d be extra for anyone who requests for an additional program. So I think you’re fine with 30-35 since couple guests may just prefer one 🙂
