    Hi, Ladies,

    I’m so excited that this was my fastest DIY project. I was so excited when I found this idea that I finished it in 24 hours. I’m sending out this newsletter a bit after I sent out my invitations and right before my RSVP deadline. It's 4 pgs and will be printed back to back, leaving only 2 pgs to send off.

    Just like other ladies, the RSVP responses I’ve been getting are few and far in between. I also thought this might be a great way to get guests excited about our wedding. I’m hoping it will serve as a reminder to RSVP since they will be getting it about a week before the deadline.

    I plan to send one out about 2 or 3 more issues probably one every month or maybe one every other month. We have a website, like most people, but I notice that mailed things get more attention.

    Anyways, I made this in Pages (on Mac). I followed an easy template and just customized it to my liking. You might be able to use the template on other applications (I’m not sure).

    There's a cute crossword (it's not called that but I can't remember) puzzle that we included on our newsletter and I made my own by putting in my own words and it automatically populated it. I put our names and other related words that were special to us. There's tons of free programs on the web to make em.

    *Okay, so I tried to attach the template but no luck. If you want it you can pm me and I'll send it to you.

                Just an update...I received a request from one or two ladies and it looks like I can't attach it in my email either (I think the file is too big). So here's the website that I downloaded the template from iWorkCommunity: Template Exchange and I used the last one on the bottom, it's title- Family newsletter- "by the numbers"

                It's four pages long and I actually only used pages 1,3, and 4. For my second page I just added one off the top menu options. Just click on Insert (on the very top), then sections, and I used "2 & 4 column inside." You'll see there are plenty more options so whatever fits your style.
