    Oh i haven’t bought mine yet but I saw nice silk ones on efavormart.com. I like that site cos they have a variety of block colors unlike other sites that have mostly patterened fans

    I think it’s such a cute idea. It’s trendy now to do other things besides flowers anyways.  I went to a wedding recently where the girls carried blingy cluches. I love it.

    I’ve been to a wedding where the BMs carried a fan and had on a wrist corsage.  A good way to save on flower costs!

    What about a wrist corsage or maybe a cute clutch?

    @Statutory Grape: Um…. my florist charged $7 for the corsages for the moms and g-mas.

    @Statutory Grape: You could also make clutches. They are REALLY easy. There’s an awesome tutorial on the Hive somewhere. You can get the metal bits off etsy for pretty cheap.

    Oh i love those clutches too! Do they carry them in the ceremony though? Very neat idea!

    @sgrape- you could do make a really pretty one to go with your green dress also! 

    I kinda want to make those as christmas gifts hmmm… can you post the link of how to make them if you find it!?
