Beating the Heat - Summer Wedding Challenge

Boy, oh boy! It was a hot one in Minneapolis yesterday! Today is less sunny but still humid and uncomfortable. We don't use an AC (yet?) in our breezy 3rd floor apartment but we do use fans! It wasn't until this morning that I had a "Duh, Laura!" moment and remembered that I have a bunch of beautiful silk hand fans leftover from a photo shoot (below).

If you're having an outdoor ceremony or reception during the summer, you might be starting to worry about how to keep your guests cool if a heat wave decides to roll in. Hand fans are a great way to add comfort and style. And luckily they're widely available on the internet and usually pretty inexpensive! Below are my top picks!

Available here, these natural straw fans are about $1 each. Attach your wedding program or dinner menu and place them on guest's chairs.

These are the silk fans I bought from The Knot. Mine are plain but you can also have them personalized as shown above.

Go for an exotic look with this hand painted paper fan, available here.

Sold by Get Married, sandalwood fans are not only beautiful but have a natural mild fragrance.

These might be my favorite! Wedding program paddle fans by talented Etsy seller Baumbirdy. Tres Chic!
