    What is the idea with the ribbon wands — for people to wave them during your recession? This might not be what you want to hear, but I would just make 1 for every guest and just hand them out with the programs, and have your usher (or whover) explain what they are.

    One for every guest, or I would skip it all together (lot of work for most people to not keep)

    I say one for every guest IF POSSIBLE, I’m making 80 for a wedding of 80. 


    But if you can’t MAKE SURE the people who get them are along the aisle, 80 wands waving spread out over 200+ people won’t be as impressive. You should make sure they’re waving around you. Maybe wands for the first few rows is an option too?

    @MrsMermaid:  I hate to say this but unless you pass one out to each guest and have your usher or hostess explain to each guest to wave it during the recessional, most people wont do anything with it. Its a lot of work and time for something that probably wont get used

    I would make one for every guest, and also use them as your “kissing cue” – and have a saying on the tables or with the wands when people grab them: “Wave your wand to wish us well, To see us kiss, then ring your bell” – that means your wands would have to have bells on them, but that way people will definitely be using them and they won’t be a waste. I’m making 200 wands for my wedding and am using them for our kissing cue as well.
