    Mandy's welcome books were a big hit among all the guests. Most of the stuff was copied or borrowed from others on the forum. I got the books at Hobby Lobby 1/2 price for $2.00 apiece and used a glue stick to attach everything. The books' pages measured 5 1/2" x 7 1/2". If you want the templates, they are on posts #14 and #16.

        And finally, the page about the photo sharing. So far 4 couples have downloaded pictures to albums here, so it is working out very well:

                  the welcome letter is my favourite part. it's so heartfelt and genuine and will definitely be a "keeper" good job!

                    That's funny - I thought I borrowed the wording from you! Must have been someone else on the forum.

                    I went through 2 glue sticks making 9 books! It definitely made it easy to print everything off my computer and use a paper cutter to cut everything to the right size.

                      She's all mine!!! But I guess I could share. She could be your wedding idea coordinator. I had one of those once - but now she's taking a break. But I guess that's ok since I'm married now...
