    Maybe tie the ribbon around the handle instead?  I think that would look cute.  Also, we had fan programs – they were a hit!  Are you having an outdoor ceremony?

    I would tie the ribbon around the handle, use shorter length paper, and round the edges 

    Kind of like these

    I like the idea of the ribbon around the handle. πŸ™‚

    Possibly stupid question… what size paper are you using for these? I’m trying to make something similar but the paper size is just not working out for some reason. Suggestions?

    Yeah, loose the ribbon, and I second rounding the edges, I think this would make them a bit more refined πŸ™‚

    @lox: I know you didn’t ask me, but I’ll answer too anyway!  πŸ™‚  We used 4×6 paper for ours (we just got them printed at kinkos).  It worked well.  Here’s a picture of some people who moved them over to the dancefloor!

    @brittneygr0: Beautiful venue!  August is hot, I’ll bet your guests will be happy to have them.  You’re actually getting married on my birthday. πŸ˜€ Good luck, I hope it goes well!

    I think you should do the ribbon around the handle.  We did that for our fan programs for our outdoor ceremony and everyone thought they were really cute.

    Adding a little ribbon around the handle will make them perfect!
