      Help!!! I want to post this, but the PDF is too big!!! Anyone know how I can make it smaller Don't want to post it as a WORD doc because of the fonts I used- it will be all distorted if I do it that way!

There is a picture and a small explanation of how we know the people. We have 40 people going, so I thought it would be nice for them to see ahead of time who else is going. I plan to send these with my welcome letters.

        Amy, I'm nowhere near starting it yet, but I have a template for it somewhere (I can't seem to find it just now). I was going to include a few pages in a duotang I'll be sending out with all of the guests that are going, maybe a picture and a fun fact if I have one ... something that is hopefully a conversation starter...but it went something like this..

        (PICTURE IF AVAILABLE) The Smith Family - Courtney and Aaron have known Joe, Jane and Jack Smith for over 10 years now - they were Courtney's neighbours when she was a child. Did you know that Jane Smith was in the '88 olympics, or that Jack is a 3-time consecutive spelling-bee champion?

        That way when the guests get there, they feel a little bit more like they know eachother. Mark Jones can go up to Jane Smith and say "holy crap, you were in the olympics?" and it's a perfect icebreaker! Ugh... I'll see if I can find the template, I can't remember where I've saved it (or on which computer!)

            I have Photoshop Elements- but it's not installed!

            And, I have Paint, but can't get it to open in there!!!

            So, if you want to see it, give me your e-mail and I'll e-mail it to you!

                How about zipping it with WinZip? That way it can stay in PDF format, but the size is condensed...

                  That sounds like an awesome idea! Unfortunately I don't have pics of all of our guests. I have thought about a cool way to seat guests at the Welcome Dinner... according to how they know either of us.

                  EX. If you've known the bride since birth sit here. Hoping it'll be a conversation started.

                  I'd love to see your finished product!

                    That's funny, I was wondering if anyone was doing this. I don't have all the pictures, although it sounds like a great idea. I can't wait to see it!
