    I want to get sandalwood fans to have out on chairs during the ceremony, but I think they would be too feminine for the guys.

    What do you all think of getting mini personal fans for just the guys? Would it be a distraction during the ceremony? Dangerous for our 1 year old nephew?
    I just want everyone to be comfortable. I also want to have parasols, so is this overkill?

    This are bit more pricy at $7.95 each, but would be extra fun for the guys, especially since girls will probably get nicer OOT/gifts and it is hard to find good stuff for guys.

      believe it or not i think more guys used the fans at our wedding than girls!

      i think the personal fans are a great idea, but might get a bit noisy...i dunno

        I would just get plain black or white ones for the guys. I love the ones you picked out for the ladies.

        I think that the sandlewood fans will be fine, it will look really nice on the chairs and you can attach a little program to them. Save the money and give the guys something cool in their OOT bags.

          I wanted to get the sandalwood fans as well since they were soooo cute but was also concerned about them being too "girly" ... I opted to have bamboo fans for everyone from blissweddingmarket since they looked more for both sexes Click the image to open in full size.

            I think the personal fans might be distracting... what about giving the girls parasols and the boys palm fans?

              Thanks for the input. I think I am going to forgo the personal mini fans.
              I do like the palm fans as well, how would the half sandalwood and half palm look? I kind have my heart set on the sandalwood ones cuz I already have two and I plan on using it in my photos. I want to have long contrasting ribbon tied to them so it dangles down my dress and possibly have these also for my sister, MOH and the moms.
              This is my inspiration.

                I used palm fans for everyone - and the guys didn't seem to mind. I think most guys know there will be "flowery, girly stuff" at a wedding. The guys used the fans too!
