    You are right, J and G.  I have the same problem....my WC is telling me the same thing!  Maybe I should just get fans for the guests!

        I love hearing that, J&G!  Yeah, most of our friends/ guests couldn't afford it either.  So, we only have 24 people coming, but we are fine with that!

          Do most resorts include a program?? I should check and see with the Wedding coordinator at Dreams about this.

            I'm not doing a program - I did order fans for everyone though.

                This thread helped me so much! Convinced me not to do programs, lol I guess I will just buy those fans.

                Thank you to all!

                    I made programs for my upcoming wedding.  I made them myself (well with the help of my wonderful sister in law and mother in law), and they really were pretty easy to make.  I bought Raffia fans from Orientaltrading.com, got some ribbon from Michaels and wrapped the handle of each fan in ribbon, used hot glue to keep it in place.  I also purchased silk orchids from Michaels which I pulled the bud off from the stems (they just popped right off), and hot glued that onto the base of the handle.  I designed a simple program on Microsoft Word, printed them up on pearlized paper, and use glue dots to affix them to a pretty colorful cardstock paper, and hot glued that onto the fan.  It was a piece of cake to do it all, and so much cheaper than buying pre-made fans.  I basically just copied it from some sellers on Etsy - they go for about $4.50 - $5.00 each when you get them from Etsy vendors.  I did it for about $2.00 each.  It's adding a lovely touch to beach wedding we're having.  Can't wait for them to be handed out to guests!  By the way, I decided to do 1 program per couple, rather than one for every person.
