    I am thinking about doing that too.  But the ones I saw were alot less intricate.  I found some on beau-coup.com.  The ones you are showing here look pretty expensive.   Nice, but I don’t know if they are a necessity.   But if you love ’em and have room in your budget, why not?

    I think it would be distracting to have so much movement in the audience. If it’s going to be really hot, you may need a tent and/or fan (Like, electric fan). 

    We didnt do programs. Short and sweet!

    Pepper15:  If you are planning to have programs of some sort regardless, then I would go with the fans. (We are doing program fans and we’re even having an indoor wedding!) I think you could find some simpler/cheaper ones that would be just as nice, but I’m sure your guests would appreciate having the option to keep themselves cool.

    I am doing program fans for my wedding. I am doing a diffrent kind of fan then you are doing but because it iwll be an outdoor wedding in the summer, I think its a nice touch.

    Pepper15:  We haven’t made a final selection yet, but my mom heard that our local Staples will make them. I am a designer though, so I’ll probably be making the whole program and then basically just sending it to them to print on the fans. I wish I had more details or price info….we haven’t gone very far into the process yet…we’re just very certain we’re going to find a way to make them work.

    Are you in the south? I know here in Louisiana, even if you’re in direct sunlight for 10 minutes… you’re sweating! If your guests will be dressed up, I would provide the fans. I wouldn’t get one for every guest though… I don’t think that’s needed.

    We made paddle fan programs for a 30 min cermoney that took place outside. It was SOO hot that I don’t know what people would have done withouth them. If they are decent priced I would get them but IMO I wouldn’t spend too much because most people just toss them away after the wedding.

    Either fan would be a good idea, I think! I don’t know that the kind you posted would be that much more expensive than the paddle fan style….you could DIY that easily with a hole punch and some brads, which may be cheaper than the larger fan and sticks. It could depend on what’s available to you.
