Wow everything looks amazing.  I absolutely love your dress.  I also love the colors you chose, they are the same colors we are using!

          Hi...first of all, your engagement photos look awesome...like a magazine spread.  And I love the pic of your little girl...looks like she's got her "snap" fingers out with the attitude, "ohhh yeah, I can work this dress!" ; )

           

          Second, I have soooo taken to your key card holders...I had some printed with Vistaprint that have the little saying something about "sauced or sober" and every time I look at them they don't sit well with me.  My FI's family would totally get a kick out of them, but my parents are conservative christians and I feel it wouldn't set a good "tone" with them.  I would love to get your template if you're willing to share!

           

          Everything looks awesome...great job!!!

          There's probably a way easier way to do this than using Word, BUT I do what I know. This is originally how I had them 

          formatted (with color) but I decided to take the color out and add it in with colored paper. I formatted a 2x3 text box and 

          added in each word in it's own text box so I could manipulate them as needed. Once you learn how to make the text boxes and 

          choose 'no fill' and 'no outline' there isn't much you can't do with it. When I had it the way I liked it, I grouped them and copied and pasted to cover the page. Like I said, there's probably an easier way, but OH WELL!!! ;) I will share this template if anyone wants it.

          Here is my final version- trimmed and ready. I printed on shimmer paper out of my printer. I trimmed the cardstock 

          (shimmer Bazil) to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches:

          I then bought the lanyards and waterproof ID holders from Specialist ID through Etsy. I think they ended up costing me 

          $1 each with shipping. Guests can also take the strap of the lanyard off and just attach straight to their bag or swimsuit as well.

           

          Finished product:
