Wedding Favors: Keep Guests Cool With Fans

What a start to summer in the NW this year! Being the true northwesterners that we are, we don't need/have air conditioning... but that doesn't mean we're not trying out all sorts of methods to stay cool.  While placing ice in front of a fan (one of our favorite DIY AC tricks!) works for at home, ascetically would pull away attention from all your intentional wedding decor.  So we've rounded up a pretty and practical wedding favor that will have your guests fanning themselves with delight.  We're talking about the hand-held fans awaiting each guest at their seat. 

There are so many different types of fans available today to capture every couples tastes from DIY to custom. We've rounded up four of our favorite hand fans from Etsy so you can be sure to keep your guests cool and happy from the get-go!
