Hey Sarah – Just got done with the big show and awesome honeymoon vacation. My version has a lot of private info on it, but give me a week and I’ll try to edit it down to a non personalized version. I hope it’s not too close to your big day.

I love the hangover kit. Great idea. We have about 85% of our guest will be OOT so this is prefect to add to our bags. Can you share your welcome template, please? [email protected]

Sorry Bees – I’ve been lazy. 🙂 Which is a good thing, to relax after a busy year of wedding planning!
I never got around to making a non-personalized version of the welcome packet, and I don’t feel comfortable sending mine out with all our info in it. It took me about 4 hrs to make everything but the map in microsoft word. The map was made months beforehand.So if you feel adventerous, try setting aside an evening to tackle the project. Use the internet to pull up facts about the places around you, and even copy-paste some soduku’s into it as well. If you feel creative, try creating a word search or cross word puzzel with words related to your wedding. Remember to include a timeline of important events, and a few key phone numbers incase a guest gets lost or needs help!
To make in word – I set up the page to have two columns with narrow margins. My first pass at the booklet had it layed out in the order I would view it in word (page 1, 2, 3, 4) but when it came to assemble the packets, I had to reorder the info in word so that it printed pages front to back. This took a little figuring out, trail and error, but its not hard to copy-paste once you get the info in place.
