Hello Hive 🙂
My wedding is outdoor, in Texas in May. Since it is going to be warm, my Fiance and I have ordered white folding fans as guest favors. (Picture attached)
I am trying to figure out how to present them to the guests and I was wondering if any of you have any ideas?
So far what I have come up with (well the only thing I have come up with) is to tie a bow of pink ribbon around the folded fan. I just want to presentation to be a little more than “Here is your fan”…. any ideas?

They can be given out the the programs, or one can be placed on each seat.

I did think about that, putting one on each seat. BUT, my Fiance and I each have preteen nephews that we would like to involve in the wedding, so they are going to have them in baskets, and hand them out as the guests arrive to the ceremony. … It is going to be so cute – they are going to be in tuxes too and look like little gentlemen. 🙂

Are these your favors? You could put them into a pretty basket with a ribbon tied around each one that has your names and wedding date. Or you could leave one on each seat at your ceremony with a ribbon tied around it.

Why not put glitter or rhinestones onto the brown wood parts of the fan?

@PitBulLover: Yes they are my favors. I am thinking ribbon around the fan, but I did not think about a little tag or label with our names and wedding date – I love that idea! I think it adds that little extra to it that I am looking for!
By The Way – PitBull I saw the pic of the DJ at your wedding dancing and lMAO (while at work).
@ Lacross – I really like that idea too, to jazz them up a bit.

@Karissa: Since the ceremony is outdoor (and it is windy there) I’m worried open fans would be flying all over the place!

Hey! Can I ask you where you bought the fans? I’m having an outdoor ceremony in the middle of the summer in Georgia. I’m keeping the ceremony as short as possible.. but fans will definitely benefit.
I think handing them out with the programs would be nice. And the ribbon idea is great as well! 🙂

I was able to find the sandalwood fans at favorfavor.com for .59 each plus shipping. That was the cheapest I was able to find them anywhere. I can’t wait until they get here.

@CantWaittillMAY: I bought the same fans, what i did was i bought a stamp from Joanns Fabric that said “all you need is love” 40% off and stamped it on the wood part (both sides) then tied a really thin pink ribbon bow around it. I also thought about stamping a heart or clover on it next to the words but decided not too. I didnt want it to look cheesy. You could probably find cute heart or even leaf charms and hang them from the ribbon to add a little bling. Then i gathered 30 fans and placed them in a tin bucket.
