    I just recieved my fans from the oriental trading company here is a picture of how they turned out.  Just to let anyone know who is thinking of ordering them, they do come in a variety of sizes, I still like them and hope the guests will use them.

        Hi Playa,

         

        I can't really tell from the picture. Do the sizes vary a lot?  I saw that mentioned on their website but nervous about there being large size differences.  I've seen other sites that guarantee they are the same size but they are more expensive.

          I ordered mine but haven't received them yet.  Your look nice!  Its not a big deal to unless it is a drastic difference.  Can't imagine people standing around comparing the size of their fans!  LOL!

            There are mixed reviews on the OT website. Some people seem fine with their orders and others say there was a large difference in size and color of some of the fans.  I think I'm going to go for it anyway.

              I like these! I am also planning to get some of these fans for the ceremony!  I would probably prefer to have them all the same size though.

                I bought my fans from OTC and have to say that I am very happy with them for the price! They are handmade so no each one is not 100% identical in size, but the ones I received anyways were fairly similar. Like some variation but around the same size, which is fine with me. And as someone else mentioned, it's not like people are going to stand around comparing the size of their fans, lol.

                  Hi L&J,

                  Here is a picture that kinda shows the difference ( one smaller one is on top of the larger), some are about an inch different, some are more oblonge than others but I don't mind I really don't think people will notice, if you really want them the same size these are not for you.

                      Thank you for the pictures Playa!  Your fans look beautfiul and  I don't think the size difference is really noticable at all.
