You have some great ideas for your newsletter. I might have to borrow them and tweak them for Mexico. I just started working on mine this weekend so I've attached a DRAFT form. It's very far from being done but so far, I love it. This is the one we are going to mail a couple weeks before we leave. I'll do another version for the OOT bags.

 

I used a template in Pages, a Mac program, to create it.

Great job!
Thanks! Mac has way better templates than PCs, just because of their history of design work. I actually use a Mac both at home and at work and love it. Plus, I use this program for a number of work projects but that's also b/c my company is too cheap to buy me real design programs!

This is awesome - Bre, I hope you don't mind that I borrow some of your ideas for my EDR wedding newsletter (of course since I'm a pc user it won't look half as nice). I was just going to send out a little email to everyone before we left with little reminders (especially about the dress code for my future brother-in law lol!), but this is a much better idea!

THanks! I would have preferred to do an email b/c of the pain of printing, envelopes, and postage, but some of our guests (FMIL) are still not online. But I do a lot of things like this for work, so it's easy and I enjoy the design aspect (I majored in advertising in college).

On a PC you should try working in Publisher. I'm not sure if that part of the standard Office Suite but I recall that it has some decent templates.

Dress code is a big thing for the resort. I definitely put that in for my FBILs!! I'm also going to put more details on attire for the wedding. I think some people were confused by "elegant summer attire" on the reception card.

I'll post a final version when I'm done. Hopefully, I can add some more EDR ideas that people can use.

Thank You for sharing!! I seem to be having a problem tweaking this newsletter. I have a MAC and am not very familiar on how to navigate. Do you have the template available? If so, please send it to me through a PM. If a template is not available and you can guide me on how to make the changes, that'll be great as well. Thanks!! :)
