DIY Fans w/ Tears of Joy Packets for Ceremony Seats

Recommended Posts

I finally finished my Raffia fans w/ the tears of joy packets and here they are...I will post a picture of the back of the tears of joy packets tonight so you can see what I used to seal the envelopes. These fans will be laid on each chair for the beach ceremony.


LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01


I purchased the fans from Oriental Trading and they were perfect. $10.00 for a dozen



I brought the satin ribbon from the dollar tree, $1.00 per ribbon (112 – â…"x5-yd)



I brought the personalized stickers from Vistaprint for for the front and the backside.

The glassline envelopes from ebay and the flower I got from Michaels. One stem for $7.99 and I cut each flower off the bush, so it made about 15-20 single flowers.


A lil note to self I tried to glue gun the flowers to the fans then wrap the ribbon over the stems for extra support and it was taking entirely too long. So what I ended up doing was using the end of a scissor and punching a whole into the handle of the fan and weaving the stem of the flower inside the handle. Then I wrapped the ribbon over it. It took a fraction of the the time and actually looks better.

They look wonderful! Are you also doing a Ceremony Program? I had thought I would do a Program attached to my fans but I am really liking this idea now... HM you've made me think! Thanks for sharing.

Guys the dimensions of the envelopes are:


100 - #4

(3 1/4 x 4 7/8 inches)


I have a bunch of envelopes left if anyone is interested in purchasing them.  I was going to list them upon our return with everything else but if you need them now lmk. Sure we can figure something out.

BRG: I actually opted not to do the menus for a few reasons, First I really wanted to do the fans and the tears of joy packets and with an additional thing it just seemed like too much. Second, I thought of the wind and how the programs would likely fly away if they arent being held or pinned down by my guest. And lastly, figured what else do they need to know on the program other than "hey were getting hitched" LOL. We previously mailed a pre-travel brochure that included a brief "program" persay.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
