How fun are these paper fans?

‘Tis the season of warm weather weddings, and while sunny outdoor ceremonies are as lovely as can be, having your beloved guests melt out in the sweltering heat is not exactly the best way to say “Thanks for coming!”

No need to sacrifice your outdoor affair, though: Equip your nearest and dearest with a little fan to keep cool and they’ll be all set to withstand even the hottest of temps.

Basic paper fans, whether they serve the simple purpose of creating a nice breeze for your guests or they double as your wedding programs or favors, are such a fun (and easy) element to have on hand for your Big Day. And you can get as fancy or as simple with them as you’d like: Petal fan programs are one of our favorite options, but you can also opt for portable battery-powered fans that are sure to keep the cool air flowing.

See below for a bunch of options on both ends of the spectrum; no matter the price point you’re comfortable at, there’s a fan that’ll be perfect for your wedding day.
