          Thanks everyone! If I can help at all, I am more than happy to - I definitely want to "pay it forward" for all the help I received! Here are some of the "templates" I used for the items that were specifically mentioned. Keep in mind I am using the word templates loosely! My DIY work is not an exact science and I would have to mess with things to get them to work a lot of time!

          First, I attached the file for the map I used - I just put it in word and then you can edit, resize, add text boxes, arrows, etc. as you wish!

          Second, I attached the file I used for the chapsticks. I just bought generic chapsticks that came in packs of two at Dollar tree. I took off the labels (came off easy!) and then printed the attachment out on blank sticker paper from Staples. Then I just cut them out and adhered the sticker label to the chapstick. You may need to resize a little if your chapstick is a bit bigger/smaller. Also, you can ungroup each square and add in your monogram, colors, etc.

          Third, I attached the files (one for orange mints, one for blue mints) for the Mints/tic tacs. Again, I just bought generic tic tacs from Dollar Tree. I *think* there were three per pack - they were orange and blue in color so I kinda worked with that theme vs just sticking to my monogram colors. Same process as chapsticks - print out on blank sticker paper from Staples, cut out, and adhere. The tic tac labels were a little trickier to get off - I just did the best I could and even if there was white paper still stuck on, I put the label over it.

          Hope this helps! Will post meet the guests in the next entry!

            And fourth, I attached the two files for the meet the guests brochure. Please ignore the dumb descriptions - I felt like I was writing personal ads for everyone! All I needed was "so and so likes long walks on the beach and is looking for a ... !" !!! I used brochure paper from Staples for these and printed one file on the front and then the second file on the back. It was tricky trying to space it out right - of course, if you have more or less guests, you can fill in the space with your monogram, wedding website, etc.
            For the first attachment, only print out page 1 - for some reason there is a page 2 and I cant get rid of it As an fyi, I took out everyones last names so the spacing got a little funky...

            Feel free to PM me with any questions as you work with these :)

                  Everything looks amazing!!! I'm not very creative on the computer. How do all you girls make your lipgloss, cards, all those templates? Do you just choose the colour on your computer and then get it printed somewhere else or can all that be printed on your computer at home?
