FAN-tastic Ideas

With summer heat in full swing – so is wedding season! Late spring and summer weddings in New England are quite popular as weather is as predictable as it can be in Massachusetts. No worries about being snowed in, but you should put a plan in place if your wedding day is a steamy, hot summer day or evening. Below are some FAN-tastic ideas to keep your guests cool and comfortable.

Fan Wedding Programs

Wedding Programs are not required, however, they do help inform guests with an outline of the ceremony as well as special thanks and notes. (See 4 parts to a wedding program). Fan Wedding Programs can double to keep guests cool. Here are a few of our favorites:

Fan Décor Ideas

FAN-tastic décor ideas start with fans! Placecards and table numbers are one way to add fans to the décor. Also consider hanging paper fans in doorways or on arches; or place colorful silk fans on top of plate settings.

DIY Brides

You don’t need a kit to make FAN-tastic Fans. Visit your local craft store, pick up some colored paper, popsicle sticks and ribbon. Create your own style or checkout Pinterest for wedding fan favor ideas. We recently posted about Plantable Invitations and Stationery – well, purchasing plantable paper is a great idea to continue on the ‘green’ theme!
