    Hi,
    I think I am going to do a faux "star" or "people" magazine. I found a website where they will print low amounts of magazines for you (so I'm planning on doing one for each welcome bag per room so around 30) and in it I will include similar features from star and people. For example:

     

    My Letter from the editor page will be my thank you note to the guests for coming...

     

    the who's been where this week will be my list of itinerary

     

    I will do a past and present brides section where I will post pics of some of my older guests at their weddings and some of my friends at their weddings

     

    I will do a News section which will gossip about all of my friends businesses, engagements, births, etc.

     

    I will do a Wedding scoop section which will "predict" all the details that the guests need to know about the wedding and the welcome cocktail dinner

     

    I will do a "when they were young section" which will be all of the groomsmen and bridesmaids as kids with a game to pick who is who

     

    And I will do a crossword puzzle with a fact about all the guests that people can only answer if they have talked to the other guests...winner will get a prize or something...

     

    The magazine will only cost about a 100 to publish for 30 of them and its my only DIY project so I am excited! Thoughts???

          I'm also planning to do a kind of Facebook idea--by literally using people's Facebook pictures (because it's easy!). Of course, I will only use flattering pictures. I'm still trying to figure out how exactly to do it. So many good ideas on here!

            I also want to do something with a map to show where everyone's from since we have guests from all over the US! Haven't figure that one out yet either, but I'll get there!

                      I love the idea of creating a magazine.

                      My FI and I talk about our "get out of jail free person" i.e. celebrity we would be with if they would have us ;-)

                      I would love to photoshop pictures of both us with that person for the magazine.

                      Thanks for the website info.
