These fans are really delicate and pretty. However they're a lot flimsier than I thought they would be. The wood is almost cardstock weight which makes it very flexible and bendable. I guess they do their job, push the air around for when it's hot. I doubt my guests will complain when it's 95 degrees in my outdoor caribbean wedding :D. They will look pretty with a bow and tag !Buy them when they're on sale!! Don't pay full price

Not what the pic shows!

Comments about The Knot Sandalwood Fan:
While these fans are very cute, and will ultimately get the job done, they do NOT look like the picture. The detailing is only along the outer edge of the fan. I got the stick on labels and I'm happy with their quality. I plan on tying the fans with a ribbon and having them in a basket at the church where we are getting married. (We live in south Texas and it feels like the fires of Hell in May) Like I said, still cute, and will serve their purpose, just don't be fooled by the picture!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not the Right Fan
By Lace and Twine
from Vinton, IA
I purchased these during a big sale, and what I received was not the fan that is in the picture. The fans that I received were thin wood fans with thin white fabric between the slats. I tried to call customer service with three minutes until closing right after I opened the package and no one answered. Hoping to get these exchanged. If you order these, open them as soon as they arrive, do NOT assume they are the correct product!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not Sandalwood. Sending these back.
These are not made of sandalwood. They are bamboo. They do not have the pierced detail showing in the picture. The fans are pierced only along the top edge. Further, they do not have a thread or ribbon running through the louvres of the fan, so they can split apart. I ordered them because I know the lovely fragrance of sandalwood from a fan I received from my mother. These have no fragrance. They may make an inexpensive alternative to paper fans. Just know what you're getting.
Poorly made flimsy fans
from San Jose, CA
I ordered 20 of those since they are on sale. Some of them has chipped wood, and most are just poorly carved with rough edges.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. I apologize for the quality received your order. We will be happy to replace any damaged or poor quality items in which you received or issue a discount. Please feel free to contact our customer service department for further details.
Nice product - inferior packaging.
I just got my fans. I am happy with them. The wood doesn't seem to be splintering and they look even nicer in person. However, the white boxes that they each came in are a bit bent and messed up. This is annoying because I was hoping to hand them out to guests in the original box, which would save me money on finding pretty packaging. I am now going to have to carefully unbend these boxes as well as possible and/or find some other way to present these to guests. If you're getting these (and I still recommend that you do because they are a beautiful and unique gift that is actually practical) jut don't depend on using the individual boxes that they came in. You might be disappointed.

About Me Parent Of Bride/Groom
I purchased these fans for my daughter's July wedding. The church and the reception site were not air conditioned, so I felt they were more of a necessity. I put a fan, a tube of bubbles and 2 tissues with their monogram on them in a white chiffon drawstring bag and left them on the pews so guests would have them when they sat down. They looked great and when we went to collect whatever might be left after the ceremony, everyone had taken them. I think not only were the bags practical but they were a lovely addition. For our wedding favors we made a donation to "The Wounded Warriors Project" and left cards at everyone's place settings. I think the two of these together, made great favors that our guests truly appreciated.

One of the best favors I have purchased. The scent of the Sandlewood is not over bearing. It is delicate and simple, which is a plus for me. I wasn't expecting such great detail, so I was pleasantly surprised. I purchased these when they were on sale and what a great buy it was. :)

The purple ribbon I tied around my fans!
We gave these to the guests at our beach wedding and everyone loved them! I tied ribbons in my colors and a small ring to the bottom of each fan and they looked so cute! Great value for the money spent!
Nicer than expected
from Canton, OH
I purchased these for our guests to use during our beach ceremony. All though the wood is very thin, they are much nicer than what I expected. The detail on them is very pretty and for the price, I think I got a great deal!

Great favor idea for warm weddings!
from Oahu, Hawaii
I got these on sale and I am pleased with them. For the price I paid, I wasn't expecting much, so I was surprised! These fans are delicate and beautiful, and the detail work is really pretty.The wood does not appear to be high quality, which is one of the only negatives to this fan. It looks like very soft wood, so you want to be sure to be careful with the fans. Also, the sandalwood smell is not very strong, so don't buy it hoping for that!I'm really very happy with these fans. They will be the perfect thing to keep my guests cool on our wedding day and at our outdoor reception!

I haven't decided if I will have these available to guests at our beach ceremony or if I will give them in the welcome bags, but either way, they add a special touch!

About Me Bride, The one and happy Yaz
these are beautiful !!!![...]. and also in my order I got two different models.
Sent me different styles in the same ord
The fans were a good buy since i got them on sale and well I guess the guests will appreciate been able to cool off at the wedding, but of the ones I received, the wood was of many different shades and most important the design was different! I got two diff designs for the carvings, I guess I'll simply put one on the grooms side and one on my own but I wouldve liked knowing they were diff before ordering them, maybe they didn't have a full stock or just changed suppliers?

Cute Cheap Sandalwood Fans
from Ardmore, OK
Not as high of quality a fan as they appear on the website, but good enough to serve their purpose. For the highest quality of sandalwood fans, the price range is [$]per fan, so the price is right! I'm having an outdoor ceremony April 2010 (Southern Oklahoma), so they will be greatly appreciated.

I can't wait to hand out these fans to my guests as they arrive to my beach wedding. They are very practical and unique.
My girls will love them

I plan on putting these fans in my MOH's gift bag. Getting married in June, not sure what the weather will be. This will come in handy if it's hot.

Nice, but no scent.
from Baltimore, MD
The fans are nice, simple, and have a beautiful cut-out design. However, they don't smell like sandalwood or anything for that matter! I was a bit disappointed about that since the scent was one of my main reasons for getting these fans. Don't expect the fans to come in pretty boxes (they will arrive in simple white cardboard boxes that you will quickly throw away.)If you are crafty, I suggest buying crystal beads and making a nice beaded arm strap to attach to the fan. This will glamour it up perfectly and would make a fun accessory for your bridesmaids.
By future Mrs. Herndon
These fans are great! The detail on them in amazing- I would recommend this particular fan over the similar personalized sandalwood fan. The quality of this is much better than the personalized one. I was so impressed with the quality and detail that I purchased more! Definitely great for an outdoor wedding in the spring or summer.

beautiful and delicate details
from San Francisco
I was so excited to find this fan for a wedding favor. I am having a summer wedding with an expected temperature of 88 degrees. I feel these fans are appropriate to give out to guests to keep them comfortable during the ceremony. I read many reviews stating that this fan is flimsy; however, I have not found that to be true. I have tested the fan myself and feel that it is very sturdy (unless you are Attila the Hun). The beautiful detail is both elegant and well carried out. It has turned out to be better than expected [...] I can hardly wait to pass this out with a chilled bottle of water to my guests as they arrive; I know the will love and appreciate this special keepsake.
Happy with the fans

theme of wedding is african american, outdoor, jumping broom wedding. during the wedding vows fans will be given out. the fans have a southern bell style and look to it. I am very happy with my pick.
Great fan! Absolutely Love it!
from Atlanta, GA
I love these--I got them while they were on sale and what a great buy! I am getting married in August in the North Georgia Mountains--it is an outdoor wedding. I think these are going to be a perfect solution! A lot of people have stated how flimsy they are--they definitely have a delicate feel to them but aren't flimsy at all. I have been carrying one around in my bag and showing it off to the florist, photographer, anyone I have a meeting with. It has been handled quite a bit and is still intact. I would definitely recommend them for a classy way to cool your guests off (and a great keepsake to boot!).
By The Over Achiever
from San Antonio, TX
I recieved my order of these fans about a week ago. I couldn't be more happy with them. Yes, they are a little flimsy but still get the job done. I was showing them off to my maid of honor and my mother as soon as a could. They all agreed that they were very beautiful and very detailed. I had no idea how much detail there was. These fans are absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to use them at my outdoor waterfall wedding in May 2009!!! They'll be perfect. =)
from Austin, TX
These fans are exactly what we wanted for our summer beach wedding. They look and feel sturdier than an average fan and they make a sweet and simple gift for guests to use again. Try and catch them on sale, it's a great deal.
Cute but kinda flimsy.
By Militray wife-to-be
from St. Louis, Mo
I love the look of these fans. I am going to use them in a July wedding and I'm sure they will come in handy, just as long as no one gets too rough with them! I am kind of nervous that they will break before they get their full [$] use out of them, but they are a great buy so far!
from Antlers, Ok
They were really cute and the cute-outs were elaborate. My wedding is outdoors and in June so I think these will be great. They are a bit flimsy but I think they will be fine.
By Future Mrs. K
from Muskegon, MI
The detail in these fans are absolutely beautiful. I'm going to give them out at our intimate beach wedding ceremony next June. I'm sure they will be a big hit, and be put to good use for a warm summer beach wedding. I also got them for a great deal while they were on sale.

These beutiful fans will be perfect for our August wedding. We are gettng married outside at a boat club and we all know how hot August can be. The fans will also serve as favors for my guests. We received the package yesterday and had no idea how detailed they were.
Nice fan for the price
from Austin, Tx
Perfect for an outdoor wedding, great price. Can also double as a favor as well.
