Has anyone got the ones from the Knot and can you tell us about them?

The store I went to was called Dai Dai Arts & Crafts Imports Co. and it was located at 223 Spadina Avenue. It was on the East side of Spadina north of Queen but south of Dundas. I hope that helps.

We are putting one on every other seat and putting bubbles on the other ones, people can decide which one they want to use :)

I just bought 50 and figured I would figure out the distribution later. I know my dad would use a fan if he was hot, so I didn't want to only get enough for the woman. But we'll see how many people end up coming and how much $ I feel like spending later... I was thinking of leaving them in a little bucket at the end of the aisles or something liek that.

I have a question about the fans though, are you giving them to every guest. I was going to place a fan on every other seat because I just can't see guys waving those things around. What do you think? What are you guys doing?

I just bought 50 off of the knot (79 cents each) plus $10 for shipping. they should be arriving any day. My plan is to leave them in a basket at the welcome/guestbook table. Im not sure how many guests we are going to have yet, but my best guess is about 50. I got the now because 79 cents was too good to pass up!

I don't know if the guys will actually use them, but I bought enough for them just in case. I'm putting pink ribbon on more than half for the girls and green ribbon on the others for the guys. I figure if they don't get used, I'll bring them back and give them to some future bride on BDW!

Ooh - this seems like a super good deal. I want to order some but I don't know how many people are going yet. Right now there are 36 but I thought we were going to have 50 or over??

Are these the scented ones? I ordered a couple "sample" fans from Asianideas.com a while back just to check the quality, and they had the nastiest smell! sad.gif Ick... a pity because they're so cute and dressier than the palm fans.

Hmmmm, I don't know about them being stinky. I ordered a bunch and they didn't smell, but it could be a batch thing. Perhaps they smell when they get wet or something, but mine were (are) fine.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
