I have decided to order sandalwood fans as favors for my wedding. I am having an outdoor wedding in August. I am also going to make some sunscreen favors.
I have approximately 62 people on my invitation list. 31 are male, 31 are female. My husband to be says, "No fans for the men!". I want there to be enough to go around; however, I don't want there to be loads of left over fans.
How many fans should I order? 36, 48, 60??
I am going to create 50 or the sunscreen favors.
Dear Bride, I have to say if the fans that looks like more for a girl, your husband to be is right, what about sunglasses for the men? either way you decide to do it. order ten extra 41 fans because some might be broken and 41 something else? or 72 fans.
Yours Truly Just the Right Touch
Hope I was some help,
I would figure out your costs for the favors and discuss it with your future husband. I would do one favor per couple, but that is your call. Congratulations, Cathy Montante, Collezione Fortuna Fashion Boutique and Bridals, (831)626-1287, www.collezionefortuna.com
I would say a few extra fans (the previous recommendation of 10 sounds about right), but have more extra sunscreen (just in case the ladies like to be careful about sun exposure too!). The 50 you are planning sounds pretty good! Congratulations! Kelly
If they only come in multiples of 12 (the 36,48, or 60) I would tend to go with the 48 or 60. My husband and I went to a wedding in July last year 98 degrees and no air in the church - believe me the men were using the pink fans, at that point they didnt care :)
You are better off having some extra than not enough - and like the first reply, some my be broken.
I ended up purchasing 60 fans. I also ordered 60 bottles for the sunscreen. That is 62 people that we have on the invitation list, not 60 people who have RSVPed, so I doubt we have 60 guests.
Thanks, everyone for your advice.
