Wedding favor fans are a fan-tastic gift for your guests especially at an outdoor ceremony. Everyone will love keeping it cool with these beautiful and functional keepsakes. There are a variety of styles such as palm hand, sandalwood, silk, Asian, mini buri, or paper to fit most any wedding scheme.
Personalization has become a fan favorite with more couples making an effort to show off their creativity. The most popular choices are initials, names, dates, and some have chosen to also use the fan as a program for the ceremony. Laser engraving is also available if you would like the fan handle customized.
When choosing wedding favor fans, you will probably want to give a little thought as to how to present them to your guests. The little things like a unique presentation set your wedding apart from all the others. It is often all those personal touches that speak volumes and will linger longest in the memory of your guests, so you want to get them just right. We would like to share some unique presentation ideas that will help to make your favors noticeable and memorable.

These fans not only beat the heat, but also double as programs to let your guests know who is who and what to expect in the ceremony. A personal message from the Bride and Groom is a thoughtful way to make guests feel welcome. There are no set rules about what goes into a program. You may include as much or as little information as you think would benefit your guests.
