    They definitely kept everyone cool! They were a hit during the ceremony and reception!

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

      Jules where in Chinatown did you get your fans.

        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! 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.

                      I just bought 24!! I'm going to put them on every other seat. The guys wouldn't use them.

                      Thanks!
