One fear or concern is the ability of the glue to withstand direct sunlight causing the glue to melt. In the many years of using hot glue I have never heard one complaint about melting in the sun. Many of the hot melt adhesives need a temperature of 300 degrees or better to melt down.

Melissa, I also am doing the plain white fans. I actually prefer that look to the straw fans, just my personal opinion. I am doing the program fans from the DIY section on Aylee's website for the ceremony, and then putting the white fans with a Thank you message with our monogram on each place setting. I'm not doing favors because we're already doing so much in our OOT bags.

I was going to order the sandalwood fans online at The Knot, but decided to wait and look in Chinatown in Toronto.  I did and I ended up buying 30 of them for only $1 each - no tax /or shipping = ).  Now I have to figure out how to dress them up a bit, need to look for some turquoise tassels and glue on something a little sparkly, not sure yet I am not that crafty.  If you order them from the Knot they engrave them for free with your order, names and wedding date.  But I figure people will lose them anyways and I didn't like the white tassels they came with.

Good luck!  The Knot also has coloured and patterned fans as well, but if you live near a chinatown go shopping there, so cheap!  I wanted to get the parasols as well but they all have patterns, i will have to order plain ones from the Knot or Oriental Trading has them as well.

I think I'm actually going to use them as place-cards or just favors at each seat.
