    So I order the Rackcards from VISTA, 50 for free, and designed them to be the programs for the ceremony fans. I've got Pink and Orange Ribbon we are going to use to make them....I'll post pics once I finish!

        I attempted my first one today, They had programs for sale at Michael's today. I haven't actually printed my programs yet so this is just using the sample one in the package.

        I think it may just need a ribbon tied around the top.

            I love the program fan idea. I have been searching the web trying to find out where to order the fan programs. It seems like it would be a simple DIY project to take on. The site I found fans with programs attached to them was like $6/each.

              i am also doing ceremony fans and printed out ceremony programs using the rack cards with vista print. with the size of my raffia fans the rack card size was perfect. how did everyone stick the program to the fan? did you use a glue gun or did you punch a hole and used ribbon somehow? thanks

                I'm so sorry you got sick. That is so disappointing! Thanks for the great idea though.

                    I'm planning on using ribbon rather than glue and then people can remove the programs later. Glad to hear that the Rack cards fit perfectly...I was really just guessing on the size...in fact I left a blank space at the bottom just incase.

                    Don't forget to post pictures once you're done! I will be posting soon...my fans and programs are enroute!

                      On the fans that I have there are small gaps where the fan meets the handle so I just threaded the ribbon through so people can always remove them. The programs I got from mihcaels were originally 24.99, but I was able to use the 30% off wedding and the 40% off one item. I only paid about $11 for 40 programs precut with ribbon! Then the fans i have been buying off other brides here and craigslist! I know I paid less then $6 per fan to do this!
