    Hi Ladies,
    I need some advice. This is my DIY save the date that I'm finally happy with after about 2 weeks of messing around with it. I originally started with a white design and then one with a beach background but I decided I wanted something really fun, unique, and bright since we are getting married in the vibrant island of Jamaica! My FI is pretty useless when I ask him for advice bc he always says it looks fine. lol, so I'm hoping you girls can give me some feedback! Please let me know any changes you would suggest!! THANKS!!

    Oh and it's not that fuzzy in Word, imagine the lines a little and images a little cleaner...(if you click on it it gets a little bigger and clearer)

                wow they look awesome!!
                the only suggestion that i would make is maybe move your name a little bit to the right, so it does not blend into the palm tree, just my opinion...but besides that congrats they look beautiful!

                    thanks girls for all the compliments :) It's so nice to hear them after all the hours I've put into it!

                    I tried to make a template and wrote up some quick notes to help anyone trying to make their own boarding pass template. Hopefully the notes are helpful and not confusing (I know Word pretty well so I'm not sure if what I wrote makes sense to anyone else! lol) I took the details out of mine, so you can just click on some of the wordart boxes, change the text/font/size to fit your own and I also tried to explain how to put in your own background. I downloaded all of my fonts from dafont.com, so I totally recommend that site. And I found my background just from googling tropical backgrounds or something like that lol. If you have any questions, PM me and I'll try to help :)

                    It looks great! Love the bright colors. My only note is (and again it might just be that I can't make it big enough), your website seems to disappear into the background....I might make it a bit bolder/brighter! Your guests are going to love these:)
