      I love the background picture with Welcome written in the sand - could you upload that to share?

       

      A few other suggestions for more pages.  You're doing awesome!

       

      1.  If you don't have your itinerary on another document, you may want to add a page for that

      2.  things to do in Jamaica - my welcome brochure has a section for "at the resort" and "around town."  I'm sure no one will use it but it looks right.

      3.  If you want more games then you can do a word search - mine had all wedding stuff, but you can do Jamaica phrases or something.  Or I have one that says "Congratulations Steph & John" at the top with instructions to come up with as many words as possible using those letters.  Most of the others are wedding related too - like match the famous couples, match a quote to a movie, match song to artist, etc.

      4.  This is from the Knot - I think it was their "guest book" - it's mad libs with advice for the couple.  I think its so cute.  I found the official Mad Libs logo on-line and copied that to the header, but I used the exact same wording (changing names of course).

          Hi sharlie,

           

          I'll PM you with the games - once I finish my book, I'll upload it on BDW but I'm since its one big Word file instead of individual pages, I want to wait a bit.  Most of the games I took from standard bridal shower games and tweaked them.

           

          I'm not sure about handing in the mad libs - I think the couple on the Knot had it at the wedding reception and basically had a table and box similar to a gift box.  I was thinking of just writing to bring it to the reception and having an area set up.  I also was going to have a master book with the answer key because I'm sure some people will be racking their brains on some.  I relied on the Internet A LOT to find the answers.

              I like your crossword with the pic of you and your hubby. Is there a template that you have that I can tweak to add my hubby and I and tailor the crossword puzzle to us?
